    With defending Big Ten Triple Crown winner Alex Dickerson out of the line-up for Wednesday's game at Xavier, the Hoosier offense was anything but stalled. Back-to-back homeruns by Josh Lyon and Dillon Dooney put up a four-spot right away in the top of the first inning. Lyon, batting third in the order (a slot usually reserved for Dickerson), added another long-ball later in the game en route to IU's seven runs and 10 hits

    Indiana's relief pitching has been simply marvelous thus far this season. The Hoosier bullpen has allowed just six earned runs in 42 inning of relief, good for a 1.29 combined ERA. At one point, the unit strung together 27 consecutive innings of shutout baseball; a streak that spanned four different games. Indiana's bullpen has not only been high quality, but the quantity has also been impressive as 13 different players have come out of the pen to contribute to the 1.29 ERA.
