    Indiana is the home team this morning.

    No rain right now. There was rain until about 15 minutes ago, and there will be rain again soon.

    Note while this is the 4th game to be played, it is "Game 5" on the bracket. Last night's postponed Iowa-Maryland game will be played after Indiana-Michigan.

    STRONG west wind heading out to right. Flags are fully extended.

    Long out #1 in B1 to LF. Catch made over the short wall (4 maybe 4.5 feet tall) at the home bullpen. LF lost his hat into the bullpen.

    K and P9 end the inning.

    Scoreless after 1.

    Light rain is back.

    Lead off single, stolen base, sac fly, and RBI single scores the first run.

    Loudest cheers of the day from Indiana fans have come just now when the UM catcher failed in a backwards falling attempt to catch a foul ball.

    Single up the middle (first hit of the day for Indiana)
    G4 moves the runner to 2nd
    K swinging after a long battle, including what imo should have been ruled a fair ball at 3rd base (runner wouldn't have advanced, but batter would have made it safely)
    F9 at the wall

    Umps keep warning the UM coach to get back in the dugout when he gives instructions to his batters. Indiana fans are getting restless.

    Yesterday's starting catcher for Indiana enters the game. He almost make a catch around the edge of the screen in yesterday's game, was entertaining and likely a SC Top 10 moment had it been successful and not on a competing network.

    A Michigan player appears to be eating a salad in the dugout. Looks like iceberg lettuce from here.

    Single lines to RF
    Controversial foul ball call on the first pitch of the 2nd batter. I think the ump is wrong.
    K swinging
    Passed ball advances the runner to 2nd
    Texas leaguer to the LF/CF/SS Bermuda Triangle followed by a midfielding by LF allows the batter and runner to trade places. UM REGAINS THE LEAD, 3-2, 1 out.
    F7 diving catch in foul territory, runner stays at 2nd
    <<pitching change, righty>>
    Runner steals 3rd, defensive indifference
    G6

    3-2 UM, mid 8

    Still no rain.
    Wind is back to straight out to RF.

    Chased Lozer. Indiana takes the late lead. Do they close well?

    Double lined to deep left-center, beat the tag at 2nd.
    Sac bunt moves the runner to 3rd
    <mound meeting>
    G6 scores the runner, TIES THE GAME AT 3
    Single through the left side on a heavy shift by 3B and SS (would have been right at the 3B in normal alignment)
    Single up the middle puts runners on the corners
    Opposite way single scores another, INDIANA TAKES A 4-3 LEAD
    <pitching change, righty>
    K

    4-3 Indiana, end 8

    The sun is peaking out. I wasn't sure that was allowed during this tournament.
