Butler at Indiana baseball


FINAL: INDIANA 12, BUTLER 2: Hoosiers ended their four-game ski emphatically, pounding out 17 hits, nine for extra bases. IU 3-4-5-6 hitters Sam Travis, Scott Donley, Michael Basil and Dustin DeMuth combined to go 13-for-17 at the plate. Joey DeNato threw a no-hitter through 5 and 2.3 innings. Indiana committed zero errors on a tough day to play defense. All-around impressive performance.

END EIGHTH: Indiana 12, Butler 2: Hoosiers add more insurance. IU now has five doubles, two triples and a homer on the day after Michael Basil’s double to dead center and pinch-hitter Tim O’Conner’s bases-clearing triple to left-center.

END SIXTH: Indiana 8, Butler 2: Indiana blew the game open with six straight hits book-ended by walks, sending 10 men to the plate and scoring five times. Sam Travis slammed a 2-run homer to right center, which followed a 2-RBI triple to almost exactly the same spot in right-center by Will Nolden, and another double by Scott Donley and singles by Michael Basil and Dustin DeMuth ensued.  Butler’s Michael Calderon beat out a two-out  infield single up the middle to end no-hit bid by IU’s Joey DeNato in the top of the inning, and DeNato’s shutout then went by the boards as Jack Dillon drove a triple over the out-stretched mitt of Casey Smith in right. Dillon then scored on a wild pitch to make it, very suddenly, a 1-run game. The Hoosiers, however, then responded robustly.

END FIFTH: Indiana 3, Butler 0. Hoosiers get another run on four hits in the frame, and would have gotten more had not Scott Donley been nailed on a pick-off/delayed steal. Donley is now 3-for-3 with 2 RBI, though, with his single scoring Sam Travis, who had scorched a double that landed right on the left field line. A single by Michael Basil and a hustling double by Dustin DeMuth ensued, but Basil was thrown out at home on a fielder’s choice and Chad Clark flew out to end the inning.

Since I am now not officially the first guy in the press box to mention it, I will post that IU’s Joey DeNato has a no-hitter through five.

END THIRD: Indiana 2, Butler 0. Back-to-back 0ne-out doubles by Sam Travis and Scott Donley got the Hoosiers on the board, and a Dustin DeMuth single then plated Donley.

END SECOND: Indiana 0, Butler 0. Hoosiers waste another scoring chance in the second, after a leadoff walk to Dustin DeMuth and a one-out single by Chad Clark. Brian Wilhite flew out to right and Justin Cureton

END FIRST: Indiana 0, Butler 0. Both teams had a couple of base runners, to no avail. IU starter Joey DeNato allowed a leadoff walk to Marcos Calderon but promptly picked Calderon off first. IU had men on first and third, after a one-out walk to Will Nolden and a two-0ut single by Scott Donley, when the frame ended as Michael Basil flew out to right.

Butler’s Bulldogs (17-15) are at a chilly, windy Bart Kaufman Field to challenge Indiana’s Hoosiers, who are trying to snap a four-game losing streak. Joey DeNato starts on the bump for IU. We’ll have updates here and via Twitter at hto.graham.
