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

Bottom 7th: IU’s seventh inning showed that Kyle Schwarber can run on his sprained knee, just not particularly fast. Schwarber laced a one-out double down the third base line then scored on an RBI double by first baseman Sam Travis into the right center field gap. Luckily for him, he didn’t have to move fast, but clearly seemed hampered on the second leg of both of those moves.IU leads 5-2.

Top 5th: Luke Harrison cruised through a 1-2-3 5th. IU still leads 3-2.

Bottom 3rd: IU left fielder Scott Donley had a two-out single and went to second on a wild pitch, but he was the only IU player to reach in the third. Game still tied 2-2.

———————————————————————————————-

Top 3rd: Christian Morris didn’t survive the third and Eastern Kentucky scored two runs to tie it. Catcher John Wilson and center fielder Austin Grisham led off the inning with singles. Designated hitter Sean Hagen drew a walk to load the bases. Right fielder Shaun Bell grounded to first and IU first baseman Sam Travis tried to turn a double play, but Bell beat the relay throw and Wilson scored. After Luke Harrison came on in relief of Morris, Grisham scored on a double steal. Game tied 2-2.

————————————————————————————————————-

Bottom 2nd: Indiana center fielder Justin Cureton beat out a grounder to third for an RBI single to give IU a 2-0 lead,, but then was picked off at first with a runner also on third and IU catcher Kyle Schwarber up to end the inning, costing the Hoosiers a scoring opportunity. IU leads 2-0.

Bottom 1st: Kyle Schwarber is back. Very much so. The Indiana sophomore isn’t catching yet, and won’t until at least the weekend, but he’s very much hitting. Playing as a designated hitter, Schwarber hit the first pitch he saw in the first over the wall in left center field to give IU a 1-0 lead.

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

Top 1st: Indiana right-hander Christian Morris gave up a leadoff double to Eastern Kentucky center fielder Austin Grisham and then walked third baseman Doug Teegarden, but then picked off Grisham at second and retired the next two batters to escape the first unscathed. Scoreless through a half.
