Indiana struggled in Clearwater, Fla., last weekend and will look to a little home cooking this weekend at the IU Classic to get back on track. After a year off, the IU Classic is back on the schedule with Southern Illinois Edwardsville and Central Michigan making their way to Bloomington. The games get underway at 10:00 a.m. Saturday with SIUE and Indiana squaring off.
In Clearwater, sophomore Samantha Berenter continued her outstanding start to the 2010 season, hitting .500 (6-for-12) with a home run, double and five RBI. Freshman Amanda Wagner hit a pair of solo home runs and scored a team-high four runs in the five games while senior Jennifer Glueckert and freshman Breanna Saucedo both had seven hits on the weekend.
ORDER DOES NOT MATTER...
...OR DOES IT?
In contrast to Berenter's hitting prowess throughout the lineup, there are a couple other examples that show certain players are comfortable in a familiar spot in the order. The first example is junior Cassie Gogreve in the No. 5 spot in the order. She is hitting .333 with two home runs and nine RBI in 48 at-bats in the fifth spot and is 1-for-12 in at-bats outside that spot. Kelsey Stander has become accustomed to the No. 9 spot, hitting .308 and scoring six runs out of the spot while hitting just .167 in the No. 2 spot in the order.
