February 28, 2000 INDIANA BEATS IU SOUTHEAST 8-2
The Indiana baseball team improved to 5-3 on the season with an 8-2 victory over IU Southeast. The Hoosiers scored six runs in the fourth inning en route to the victory.
Jason Williams led off the fourth inning with a walk and scored on a double by Rob Stastny. Gibran Hamdan then collected an infield single to move Stastny to third base. The Hoosiers converted a double steal as Hamdan stole second and Stastny broke toward the plate to steal home. Tim McNab continued the inning with walk. Benji Clause then singled and Hamdan scored on a throwing error. McNab then scored on an Eric Blakeley ground out. Dan Haegele then singled up the middle to plate Clause. Haegle stole second and scored on a Rich Berich double.
"We are getting better at the plate, but we still left too many runners stranded," Indiana head coach Bob Morgan said. "David Ferris started the game well for us and worked out of a couple jams."
Ferris earned his second win of the season working five innings and striking out four. He had some control problems with five walks but allowed just two runs. Quinn Moore worked a pair of innings in relief and Carrington Fisk, the nephew of Hall of Famer Carlton Fisk, made his collegiate debut with one of inning of work. Chris Wilson worked the final inning.
The Hooisers pounded out 10 hits. Clause, Haegele, Berich all collected two hits and Indiana swiped eight bases on the day.
