Sycamores wrap up season sweep of Purdue in baseball

TERRE HAUTE — Jordan Pearson went 3-for-4 with a pair of doubles and all nine position starters for the Indiana State baseball team recorded at least one hit, leading the Sycamores to a 10-5 victory and a season sweep of Purdue in front of 679 fans Tuesday at Bob Warn Field.

ISU claimed its second consecutive game and improved to 14-13 overall, while Purdue dropped to 11-19. The Sycamores are 4-1 against the Big Ten Conference this season after sweeping their two-game series with the Boilermakers and winning two out of three at Minnesota in mid-March.

ISU and Purdue combined for nine runs over the first three innings as the Sycamores took a 5-4 lead. Pearson (single), Mike Fitzgerald (single), Tyler Wampler (one-run single), Landon Curry (single) and Cody Zimmerman (two-run single) tallied five consecutive hits with one out in the bottom of the second inning as ISU scored four runs in the frame.

ISU took a one-run lead into the fifth inning before Pearson hit his second double of the game, scoring Owen Conway and Jacob Hayes on a double to deep center field.

The Sycamores added three more runs in the sixth, with Robby Ort and Hayes each driving in a run.

As a team, ISU pounded out 14 hits with four doubles, their third consecutive game with at least 10 hits in a game.

Six pitchers took the mound for ISU on Tuesday with Daniel Peterson (1-3) earning the victory. Peterson tossed three scoreless innings in relief, allowing two hits while fanning two batters.

Pearson totaled a career-high three hits and a career-high two doubles, also driving in two runs. Ort went 2-for-4 with two runs batted in, moving into a tie with John LaMar (175 – 1989-92) for fourth in ISU history for RBIs.

Koby Kraemer (2-for-4, two runs scored) and Hayes (2-for-4, double, RBI) also picked up multiple hits Tuesday.

ISU continues its six-game homestand this weekend, hosting Missouri Valley Conference-leading Creighton. First pitch will be at 6:30 p.m. Friday.
