Hoosiers close in on crown

Indiana is a game away from adding a Big Ten tournament title to its first regular-season crown since 1932.

The top-seeded Hoosiers knocked off No. 2 seed Ohio State 11-3 Friday night at Target Field in Minneapolis.

IU (42-13) can win the tournament title with a win in the 8:05 game tonight. The Hoosiers will face the winner of the afternoon elimination game between Nebraska (27-29) and Ohio State (35-22).

If IU loses tonight, a deciding game will be played at 12:05 p.m. Sunday.

In Friday’s victory, the Hoosiers erased a 3-2 deficit with six runs in the bottom of the fifth inning. After getting its first two batters on base thanks to a throwing error, IU brought home runs with a Sam Travis’ sacrifice fly, RBI singles from Michael Basil, Dustin DeMuth, a Casey Smith single that brought in two runs and an RBI single from Chad Clark.

Kyle Schwarber hit a solo home run for IU in the first inning, and Travis homered in the sixth. Indiana starter Joey DeNato gave up three runs on seven hits with six strikeouts in seven innings.
