Hoosiers advance in NCAA baseball tourney

South Side grad Coursen-Carr is winning pitcher

BLOOMINGTON – When Indiana needed a win in the Big Ten tournament championship, the Hoosiers turned to freshman and South Side grad Will Coursen-Carr.

When the Hoosiers (46-14) needed a win in its NCAA regional title game Sunday night against Austin Peay (47-15), they again gave the ball to Coursen-Carr, who delivered and earned the win in IU’s 6-1 victory.

Indiana, which won all three games it played this weekend, advances to the NCAA super regional next weekend in Tallahassee, Fla., where Florida State, the No. 7 national seed, awaits.

Coursen-Carr allowed just one run through 5 1/3 innings, working out of several jams. He received a little help from teammates such as senior center fielder Justin Cureton in the second inning.

On a deep fly ball by Austin Peay catcher P.J. Torres, Cureton leaped and reached over the wall at Bart Kaufman Field to pull back a potential three-run home run.

Coursen-Carr, who allowed five hits and walked four, was able to work out of jams during the first five innings, but when he loaded the bases in the sixth with one out, IU manager Tracy Smith took him out. Relievers Luke Harrison and Ryan Halstead limited the damage to just one run.

The Hoosiers grabbed the lead in the first inning when sophomore catcher Kyle Schwarber hit a solo home run to right. Senior shortstop Michael Basil and junior left fielder Casey Smith each added RBI singles.
