Indiana Travels To No. 8 Northwestern For Saturday Doubleheader
April 3, 2009
The Wildcats run-ruled the Michigan State Spartans in a pair of games on Wednesday to improve to 6-0 in Big Ten play.
THE LAST TIME...
Game two saw Delaney keep the Hoosiers out of the hit column in a 13-0 Northwestern triumph.
The Wilcats lead the all-time series 39-56 and have won the last eight and 15 of the last 16. The last IU victory came in 2004, a 5-4 win.
The sophomore also carries a 1-1 record and a 1.84 ERA in the last three games and has struck out 13 in that span as well.
YOU CAN'T CATCH ME!
Hobbs is a dependable pitcher from the University of Evansville who appeared in three games during the first tournament of the season, and made one start. In Houston, Hobbs came on in relief against North Carolina State and pitched 3.2 stellar innings, allowing just one unearned run on three hits while striking out two.
Stander is an lighting-quick outfielder that played in 54 games for the University of Tennessee last season and has started at least once in all three outfield positions so far this season. The sophomore has been extremely effective batting in the ninth spot in the order recently, collected four hits in her last five at bats, including a perfect 3-for-3 day against Wisconsin last weekend for her second career three-hit game. Then on Wednesday against Evansville, Stander stole two bases, the third time this season she has swiped a pair of bases in a game.
