Indiana extends the lead to 4-2 on an error from pitcher Bailey Dees. Dees attempted to pickoff Ashley at first base and it went into the outfield. Jeremy Houston scored from 2B.

Heading into top 5

Hoosiers get out of the jam!

Nathan Stahl comes into relieve Tommy Sommer with two outs in the top of the 5th inning and gets Piacentino to strike out looking. PSU strands 3 on base

4-2 IU lead heading into bottom 5

T5:

Houston got a infield base hit to SS and Fucci scored from 3B
Drew Ashley scored Jessee after a ground ball to third base -> fielders choice to get force out at 2B

I was concentrating on and watching regional basketball action while keeping an eye on the game. It looks like Stahl had another good outing coming out of the bullpen.

After a really slow start offensively, we finally go our bats going.
