Indiana State baseball tops UConn, Ohio State on Saturday

PORT CHARLOTTE, FLA. — The Indiana State Sycamores posted their first victory of the 2014 season on Saturday as Derek Stagg pitched seven scoreless innings in keeping the Connecticut offense quiet and leading the Sycamores to a 3-0 victory over the Huskies. The action came in the first of two games played at North Charlotte Regional Park as part of the Snowbird Classic Saturday.

Stagg allowed just two hits while striking out six and walking three in seven innings of work.

Ryan Keaffaber worked the final 1 2/3 innings to pick up the save.

The Sycamores loaded the bases up in the first but could not push across a run.

Indiana State did score their first run of the 2014 season in the second. A pair of one-out walks to Jeff Zahn and Taylor Steen put runners in scoring position. Landon Curry followed with a single to right center that scored Zahn. The Sycamores had another opportunity in the third when Mike Fitzgerald led off with a double to left but was left stranded.

Jacob Hayes tripled off the right field fence to open the seventh and Mike Fitzgerald followed with an RBI single through the left side of the infield as the Sycamores increased their lead to 2-0.

Derek Hannahs led off the ninth with a walk and went to second on Brian Romero’s sacrifice bunt. Zahn followed with a walk and Taylor Steen snuck a single through the right side of the infield to score Hannahs and give Indiana State a 3-0 lead.

Indiana State outhit Connecticut 9-2 with Fitzgerald finishing with a double and a single in four trips to the plate to lead the Sycamore attack. Curry had a pair of singles, Hayes a triple, and Wampler, McClain, Zahn and Steen each had a single.

• ISU 7, Ohio State 3 — The Sycamore baseball team won their second straight game Saturday as they dominated Ohio State for a 7-3 victory at the North Charlotte Regional Park.

Indiana State (2-1) will conclude their weekend southern trip today when they will meet the Buckeyes again at 1 p.m.

”I was real disappointed in our first game against UConn,” Mitch Hannahs, Indiana State baseball coach said. “We really should have won 7 or 8 to nothing. I just felt we didn’t execute well and left a lot of guys out there. Fortunately Stagg threw very well and kept it in our favor. The way Keaffaber finished the first game, what poise by the freshman.”

The win over Ohio State was much better for the coach.

“We were the aggressor in the second game and really went after them,” Hannahs said. “Lombard did a good job. He got in to a jam in the sixth but worked out of it and the bullpen really came through again. We are just mixing and matching right now. We have a long way to go but I like the way we are competing."

Indiana State scored a pair of runs in the top of the first inning against Ohio State to take the early lead as Zimmerman scored on Fitzgerald’s RBI single and Hayes added the second run on a Romero sacrifice.

Ohio State came back to temporarily take the lead on a three-run home run over the right field fence by Dawson in the bottom of the fourth.

Fitzgerald added two more RBI in the fifth with a double that scored Curry and Hayes while Wampler and McClain each scored in the sixth on a Zahn single and a Hannahs sacrifice. Hayes doubled and scored on a single by Fitzgerald in the seventh to push Indiana State’s lead to 7-3.

Lombard earned his first win as a Sycamore as he allowed three runs on six hits while striking out six and walking one. A.J. McElderry, Nick Kolarik each worked in relief with Keaffaber coming on to close out the win for the second straight game.

Indiana State had 13 hits in the game with Fitzgerald going 3 for 4 and knocking in four RBI. Zahn and Zimmerman had a pair of hits while Curry, Hayes, Romero, Wampler, McClain and Hannahs each had one.
