Game 16: Revenge.

Starting the Spring Break trip is a game tonight versus the Indiana Hoosiers.

Last season the upstart Hoosiers who earned the 6th and last seed to the Big Ten Tournament, ended Ohio State's season in the first game of the losers bracket in the double-elimination tournament.

Due to the Big Ten's scheduling process, the Hoosiers as in 2008 are not on the Bucks 2009 conference schedule, and tonights game will be considered a non-league game. Indiana was picked by Baseball America to win the Big Ten, and trout out on of the best catchers in college baseball in Junior Josh Phegley. Hopefully Burkhart can continue his hot start, show he's the Big Ten's best catcher, and the Bucks finally get rid of that sour taste from last seasons end.

Update: The start of the game is being delayed due to rain. The estimated start time is 6:30 PM.

Update 2: Well now its 7:30 and no start, but it appears the game will start before 7:45. The audio feed from IU is up and playing, just music right now.

Update 3: 7:47 and the game is underway.

Tonight's lineup:

Hurley lf
Kovanda 2b
Stephens cf
Miller 3b
Burkhart c
Rupert ss
Dew dh
Arp rf
Streng 1b
Wimmers sp

Live audio is provided by Indiana free of charge by listening Here

Go Bucks!

I agree about the revenge think. I have followed this team for a long time and that loss last season in the tourny in Ann Arbor was horrible to say the least. I never thought we would lose that game. I guess it is part of baseball though.

Go Bucks!!

Wimmers with a 9 pitch 1st inning sitting down IU in order. 1 pitch and a ground out to Phegley, thats a way to contain him.

Will be interesting to see how our bats are tonight.

Wimmers is getting it done.
9 up 9 down. 5 K's through 3 IP. Has retired 4 straight Hoosiers n the lovely backwards K.

38 pitches 25 for strikes.

Cool to listen to the game on the radio. Wimmers is pitching great tonight,but the guys have to put some runs on the board. The freshman Monar is also shutting down our lineup. I wish Coach Todd would move Stephens out of the 3-hole. Nothing against him but he does not really fit in that spot. Put Streng or Burkhart their.

I think we have a picthers duel going here.
