Ball State at Indiana baseball resuming after lightning delays, BSU up 4-3 in the bottom of the 8th

FINAL: BALL STATE 5, INDIANA 3. The Hoosiers’ fourth straight loss. Former Bloomington South standout Tyler Jordan, a junior for the Cardinals, picked up the save. IU did have a couple of shots late, with DeMuth barely missing a homer in the eighth and Nick Ramos flying out to the fence in right to end the game. Casey Smith was hit by a pitch to start the ninth, but Trace Knoblach then bounced into a double play. IU’s Kyle Schwarber was on deck, still reduced to pinch-hitting roles by a sprained PCL in his leg, but he didn’t make the batter’s box since the Ramos’ shot was caught.

END TOP NINTH: Ball State 5, Indiana 3. Elbert DeVarie stroked a leadoff ground-rule double to left, took third on a sacrifice bunt by Wes Winkle and scampered home on a perfect sacrifice squeeze by Blake Beemer to give the Cardinals an insurance run.

END EIGHTH: Ball State 4, Indiana 3. Dustin DeMuth flied out to the right field fence to end the inning. Just missed it. Would have been his second two-run homer of the game and would have put the Hoosiers ahead, but not to be. Scott Effross will pitch the ninth for IU.

Indiana’s rescheduled game with Ball State is set to resume at about 8:15 p.m., with a man on and two outs and IU’s Dustin DeMuth up.

DeMuth hit a 2-run homer to left in the sixth to cut into a 4-1 BSU lead.

Ball State got three singles and a pair of IU throwing errors to put up a 3-spot in the third,  then added another run in the fourth on a Sam Tidaback double that scored Kevin Schlotter, who had drawn a 2-out walk. IU got its first run in the bottom of the third as Michael Basil singled and eventually scored on a wild pitch.

Can someone make a Lunardi-esque guess about the potential for IU baseball playing in Omaha?

Bombay, last week, a lot of college baseball writers had them as the #8 overall seed in the tournament, hosting a regional, and Super Regional (if they win their regional). With that said, they had a really good shot. Then, they went to MSU and got swept. If they get out of their current funk (I think the Butler series this weekend will get them out) and get back to palying they way they played during their 18 game winning streak, I think they have a good shot at making it to Omaha.
