Sycamores beat Buckeyes again


The Tribune-Star

---- — Indiana State capped its season-opening college baseball weekend with four runs in the top of the ninth inning Sunday for an 8-6 win over Ohio State.

“The great thing about today was the guys experienced some adversity when we gave up a big inning in the sixth,” coach Mitch Hannahs said. “We went through an inning or two where we kind of wobbled but did not get knocked out and the guys kept battling.”

ISU had an early 4-0 lead with runs in the first, third, fourth and sixth innings. Tyler Wampler, Brian Romero, Landon Curry and Connor McClain had the RBIs.

Ohio State tied the game with four runs in the bottom of the sixth and took the lead with two in the bottom of the eighth.

ISU loaded the bases with one out against Ohio State’s closer. Mike Fitzgerald drove in one with a sacrifice fly, Romero’s two-out single tied the score and hits by Wampler and Jeff Zahn finished the rally. Ryan Keaffaber got his second save of the weekend by retiring the side in order in the bottom of the ninth.

Curry and Wampler each had three of ISU’s 12 hits. Now 3-1, ISU plays this coming weekend at Nashville in the Mule City Classic against Lipscomb, Belmont and Middle Tennessee State.
