IPFW baseball advances to title game

The Journal Gazette

Evan Miller relieved with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning and picked up the strikeout that saved IPFW's 6-5 win over South Dakota State at the Summit League tournament. 

The Mastodons led 6-2 at the start of the ninth but the Jackrabbits injected drama at Sioux Falls Stadium with a two-out, three-run double by Newt Johnson. Greg Kaiser hit his 10th home run of the year for IPFW, which broke a scoreless tie with a four-run fifth. 

The Mastodons face No. 1 seed Oral Roberts in today's championship game, which will start at 1 p.m., an hour earlier than expected, due to weather concerns.
