HOOSIERS FALL TO PENN STATE
Ferris' 6+ Hitless Innings Not Enough
One Boxscore Game
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.
