Hoosiers and Boilers Set for Sunday Trifecta
April 15, 2007
WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - Indiana and Purdue will square off for a trio of games on Sunday at Lambert Field. IU and the Boilers start off by completing suspended game two, which the Hoosiers lead 3-0 in in the top of the first. IU and Purdue will resume game two at 11 a.m. on Sunday, with games three and four to follow.
Indiana took a 3-0 lead in the top of the first inning in the second game of the series with runners on first and second and one out before a rain delay halted the action. Keith Haas led off the game with a single and moved up to second on a wild pitch. After Evan Crawford reached on an error, Andrew Means was hit by a pitch to load the bases.
Jon Fixler then drove in the Hoosiers' first run by drawing a walk, and two batters later, Tyler Cox ripped a single to left field to plate two runs. With Michael Nilles due up against Josh Lindblom, the umpires sent the game into a rain delay as the field conditions deteriorated. Matt Bashore is the starting pitcher for the Hoosiers, though the freshman is yet to throw a pitch in the contest.
Games two and three will be seven innings in length, while game four will be a nine-inning affair. The Boilermakers took the series opener, 4-2, on Friday.
