Buckeyes-Gophers 3:35 at Huntington Park

The Buckeyes will look to even the season series against the Gophers today as they square off in an elimination game in the Big Ten Tournament. Winner turns right around and faces Indiana 45 minutes after the last out. Loser goes home and waits until Monday to see which regional they have been selected to play at. Both teams will be in the field of 64 regardless of the outcome today.
For Ohio State on the mound will be junior lefty Eric Best. The Olentangy native will look to give the Buckeyes a much needed shot in the arm after last nights 13-3 loss to Indiana.
This will be Minnesota's fourth game in three days, and everything I am hearing is that they are running thin on pitching. With the Bucks throwing a weekend guy with a week's rest, you'd hope the Buckeye has the advantage on the mound.
This might be the last time Central Ohio gets to see these Buckeyes in action. Don't miss out on the chance and head down to beautiful Huntington Park this afternoon.
I'll be Twittering all afternoon. I'm not good on the live blogging so hop on twitter for many updates and insight during the game.
