    HOOSIERS FALL TO PENN STATE

    Ferris' 6+ Hitless Innings Not Enough

    Game One Boxscore Game Two Boxscore

    State College, Penn.--David Ferris pitched 6 1/3 hitless innings against Penn State Sunday. Unfortunately for the Hoosiers, the game was seven innings long. Indiana gave up five runs off three hits and four walks in the bottom of the seventh to fall 5-4 in the third of a four-game series.

    Indiana started a four-run fourth inning when Vasilli Spanos doubled to score Dan Haegele. Eric Farley scored Spanos off a sacrifice RBI. Jason Williams drove in IU's final two runs with a double that scored Eric Blakeley and Blake St. Clair.

    Chris Wilson and Tom Willerer each pitched in the final inning. Wilson was given the loss; he drops to 0-2 for the season.

    In the second game Penn State put together seven runs off 10 hits to beat the Hoosiers 7-6 in seven innings. Indiana trailed 5-0 into the fifth, when Benji Clause doubled, Tim McNab reached on an error, and Haegele walked to load the bases. St. Clair stepped up to a 1-1 pitch, and sent it over the centerfield wall to tally a grand slam, and re-charge the Hoosier line-up.

    In the sixth, IU looked to follow up the fifth-inning charge when Joe Sadler knocked in a two-run homer that scored Blakeley. The home run was Sadler's first in his college career.

    The Hoosiers have Monday off before traveling to IUPUI for Tuesday's contest. Wednesday IU hosts Wright State, and Friday Indiana gets back into Big Ten action when the Michigan Wolverines come to town for a four-game series.
