Indiana Faces Title Game
May 23, 2009
COLUMBUS, Ohio - The Indiana baseball team will be playing for its second Big Ten Tournament title and an automatic bid in the NCAA Tournament tonight at 7:05 p.m. at Huntington Park. The Hoosiers will take on the winner of this afternoon's Ohio State-Minnesota game with the title on the line. Fans can watch the game on the Big Ten Network or listen to Matt Brady and Jeremy Gray on WHCC 105.1 FM in the Bloomington area or worldwide on XM/Sirius Channel 196.
Should the Hoosiers falter in tonight's contest, IU would have a rematch against the team that defeated it this evening, as Indiana is the only team that has not lost a game in the double-elimination tournament. The Hoosiers have won just one Big Ten Tournament, in 1996, the only NCAA Tournament appearance in school history.
The Hoosier bats have been scorching hot in this year's tourney, scoring 34 runs with a .392 average on 49 hits. Indiana has already broken the tournament record with 15 doubles. IU's pitchers have an ERA of 2.00 and just a .188 batting average against. They have allowed just seven runs. The Hoosiers have tallied at least 15 hits and have allowed no more than seven in all three contests in Columbus.
