IU Baseball's Saturday Contest Delayed
Feb. 28, 2009
CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. - Saturday's Indiana-Austin Peay contest has tentatively been pushed back to 3:30 p.m. CT (4:30 ET). Inclement weather in the Clarksville area has delayed the Cleveland State-Ball State contest that will immediately precede IU's game against the Governors.
Eric Arnett is slated to get the ball today against APSU's Stephen Huff. The Hoosiers have never lost to the Governors in six previous tries. Indiana will take on Cleveland State on Sunday in the final game of the APSU Invitational.
Ball State scored four times in the last three innings to earn a 5-4 victory over the Indiana baseball team on Friday. Matt Bashore scattered seven hits, struck out six and allowed just one run in collecting a no-decision. Evan Crawford hit his first longball of the season in the opener of the Austin Peay Invitational.
Alex Dickerson and Jerrud Sabourin each collected two hits apiece for the Hoosiers (2-2), while Josh Phegley walked four times in the loss. The Cardinal bullpen limited IU to two hits over the last five innings and the Hoosiers stranded 13 runners. Red-hot Eric Nielsen had his third three-hit game of the season for BSU (3-2) and Jeremy Hazelbaker delivered a walk-off homer in the bottom of the ninth.
