    Looking good, gentleman. Wouldn’t be upset if we got a little more insurance here, though.

    If Indiana loses tonight (big if), it was the low average w/RISP. Lots of men left on base. That said, it is still 3-3 top of the 8th. Plenty of time to pull this one out.

    Ump was calling a very tight strike zone in the top of the 9th…A couple pitches were very borderline and called as balls. Cornered the Hoosier closer into a fat pitch(the go-ahead runs coming in from 2nd and 3rd) he probably shouldn’t have thrown.

    Gonna need some special magic in the bottom half.

    Tough, tough loss. It will be an extremely tough road from here. I think IU let this one slip away. They are a better team than Oregon State, though. Slegers to go against whoever the Beavers will put out there? Advantage, IU.

    We’re not out of it yet, but that’s a lot of runs left on base the last two games. It’s been brutal watching us coming up empty-handed after so many promising innings.

    Don’t know if Oregon State has the left-handed curve-ballers that have been giving us fits, but we better figure it out quick. No room for error anymore. Let’s go Hoosiers!

    Too many men left on base while in scoring position – a few clutch hits and IU wins this game by at least a run or two…and maybe much, much more! BTW, Wilson’s double in the 9th inning missed being a homerun by on a few feet. Such a tough loss…but now let’s pick ourselves up and beat Oregon State on Wednesday!

    Out pitching and defense have been pretty solid these last 2 games. If we can keep that going and get our offense back on track, I have no doubt we can win 3 straight and make it to the Championship series. I think the 9th was a boost for Schwarber and Travis. They had been slumping a bit in the CWS. They both crushed the ball in the 9th. I think that is a good sign.
