End of Game: Ryan Halstead hit a batter, but that was all, as he retired the other three batters to preserve the shutout and give Indiana a 5-0 win over Ohio State. The Hoosiers look for the sweep in Sembower Field’s last game tomorrow at 3 p.m. More in tomorrow’s paper.

—————————————————————————————————————————-

End of the Eighth: Kyle Schwarber managed a single but that was all the baserunners Indiana got in the eighth. Regardless, the Hoosiers head to the ninth with a 5-0 lead. Ryan Halstead is coming on for Kyle Hart to close the game.

———————————————————————————————-

Middle of the Eighth: Kyle Hart is getting stronger as the game goes. He just struck out the side. That’s eight for the game and that’s eight scoreless innings. IU leads 5-0.

————————————————————————————————

End of the Seventh: Michael Basil’s solo home run to leadoff the inning makes it 5-0 IU. Brian King left after an out for OSU right-hander Brett McKinney, who escaped without further damage, but IU still up by five.

——————————————————————————————————

Middle of the Seventh: Kyle Hart surrendered a walk and his third hit and then balked the two runners to second and third with two outs, but got a groundout to shortstop Michael Basil to end the inning. He’s given up just three hits through seven shutout innings. IU leads 4-0.

—————————————————————————————————————

End of the Sixth: Brian King has quitely thrown four scoreless since giving up two  two-run homers in the first four innings. He records his second straight 1-2-3 inning and has allowed just one base runner since the second.

——————————————————————————————————————

Middle of the Sixth: Kyle Hart is still cruising. With a 1-2-3 inning in the sixth, he’s given upu just two hits. He’s struck out five and IU leads 4-0.

——————————————————————————————————————————————–

End of the Fifth: Ohio State’s Tim Wetzel one-upped IU’s Justin Cureton by going almost to the wall in left center field and making a sliding catch to rob Cureton of extra bases. Brian King struck out Kyle Schwarber to complete a 1-2-3 inning, but IU still leads 4-0.

———————————————————————————————————————

Middle of the Fifth: Kyle Hart hit a batter and gave up his second single of the game, but Kyle Schwarber threw out Kirby Pellant trying to steal and IU center fielder Justin Cureton laid out in the left center field gap to make a diving play to end the inning. IU still leads 4-0.

—————————————————————————————————-

End of the Fourth: Designated hitter Dillon Dooney, who is hitting like .500 over the last two weeks, singled to lead off the fourth and as bunted to second by shortstop by Michael Basil, but OSu’s Brian King retired the next two batters. IU still leads 4-0.

———————————————————————————————————

Middle of the Fourth: Kyle Hart got two outs quickly then struck out David Corna swinging to end a 1-2-3 frame. Hart allowed a base-runner to scoring position in each of the first three innings, but has only allowed one hit through four. IU leads 4-0.

————————————————————————————————–

End of the Third: Catcher Kyle Schwarber and first baseman Sam Travis both drove pitches to the wall but both fell into hands of Ohio State gloves and OSU left-hander Brian King notched a 1-2-3 inning. IU is still up 4-0.

Middle of the Third: Kyle Hart again escapes an inning with a runner in scoring position. Ohio State center fielder Tim Wetzel drew a leadoff walk, stole second and went to third on a throwing error to second. Hart struck out the two batters after Wetzel, however, then got a groundout to end the inning. IU leads 4-0.

——————————————————————————-

End of the Second: Chris Sujka came through with four home runs early in the season but hadn’t hit one since March 20. Until Friday. His two-run over the left field fence makes it 4-0 Indiana through two innings.

——————————————————————————————————————–

Middle of the Second: Kyle Hart surrendered a leadoff single and a walk in the second, but got a pair of force outs and then got OSU catcher Greg Solomon whiffing at a pitch out of the zone to end of the inning. IU leads 2-0.

———————————————————————————————————–

End of the First: After having a miserable day most of Thursday, Sam Travis made up for it with what turned out to be a game-winning double. He followed that up in his first at-bat Friday with a two-run home run to put IU up 2-0 after one.

——————————————————————————————

Middle of the First: Kyle Hart walked the first batter he faced in OSU center fielder Tim Wetzel and then balked him to second, but got him out trying for third on a grounder by OSU second baseman Ryan Cypret, then got the next two hitters to fly out to right to end the inning. Scoreless headed into the bottom half.
