Buckeyes win a nailbiter 5-4, Championship hopes still alive

Sitting here at Bill Davis Stadium, weather is incredible, fans have came out in droves.

Just Miller has continued his hot hitting going 2-for-4. Dew went 2-for-5, Burkhart also had 2 hits in his 4 AB's

Wolosiansky took the mound allowed 6 hits, 3 runs, in 7 IP, 5 Ks. Made his way out of a bases loaded jam in the first allowing just 1 run after 3 singles started the game.

Burkhart leads off the 7th with a double, advances to 3rd on a balk, Dew singles him in.

Iowa scored a run in the bottom of the 8th to pull within 1 5-4, in the 9th Iowa led off with a double, a bunt single to have runners on the corners no outs. Jake Hale proved he is the Big Ten's best closer, with help from catcher Burkhart who made a diving catch on a bunt attempt. Hale struck out the next batter, with Iowa down to their last out, Hale induced a groundout to Engle at shortstop. Hale's save was his Big Ten leading 14th, the 14th save also ties Ohio State's single single season record.

Tomorrows game is at 1:05, before the game the three seniors, Hale, Miller and Michael Arp will be honored.

What a fun game last night. Hale was awesome just like he has been (all season) in the 9th inning. I was really worried when Iowa had 1st and 3rd with no outs. That was a so unreal to watch Jake slam the door. I am going to miss that guy so much next year,he is such a great pitcher.

Go Buckeyes and come on Penn St!!
