    BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Hoosier Baseball (20-11) will meet the Indiana State Sycamores (19-11) on Wednesday in the second of a home-and-home series between the two teams this season. After taking a 6-4 decision in Terre Haute on March 9, IU is looking for the season sweep.

    Both Indiana and ISU are coming off of series wins this past weekend. A T.C. Knipp three-run triple in the ninth, followed by a Michael Basil walk-off single allowed the Hoosiers to take Sunday's rubber match against Ohio State. The Sycamores took two of three from Bradley, with wins on Friday and Saturday.

    Wednesday's 3:05 p.m match-up in Bloomington will see a pair of freshman southpaws take the mound in Brian Korte (1-1, 3.54) for the Hoosiers and Josh Negele (1-0, 5.40) for Indiana State.

    As a part of IU Athletics Social Media Day, Wednesday's game will also be streamed live on Ustream. Head to IUHoosiers.com for links to the live video, audio and GameTracker live stats.

    THE LAST TIME
    As mentioned, the Hoosiers and Sycamores battled earlier this season in an IU victory at Indiana State.

    Freshman Dillon Dooney led the way at the plate in game one, notching two hits and three RBI. Junior RHP Drew Leininger gave the Hoosiers three solid innings on the mound, allowing just one run on three hits.

    Sophomore outfielder Robby Ort provided the offense for the Sycamores with a solo homer and sac fly.
