So no running out of the baseline against OSU in the last game, but it gets called against us in this game? B1G umpiring is bad like most everything else in the conference.

And then they decide to compound that horrible call with a ridiculous overturn on the Schwelly strike three.

Great outing by Hroch.. Too bad about the HR but a great 3 hitter but it was a great performance and a win tomorrow brings us closer to the BIG title..

Wow, wow, wow. Don't even know where to start.

Chance Hroch of course. How about five 1, 2, 3 innings and only faced four batters in the other four innings. Seriously, all this talk about OSU and Indiana pitching... yeah well, how'd they matchup with our pitching? They were good but we won.

The defense behind Chance? Very, very good. Line out - pick off was a great play and done in the blink of an eye. Everywhere was great, the outfield was great. We can play defense.

Only seven hits but, guess what, three from the top of the lineup, four from the bottom. We've been doing this all season, who does it better? What do opposing coaches think about that as they prepare for us? Wouldn't want to be them.

3-0 in the pod with one to go. Didn't see that coming. Swept Indiana. No, no, no, no, that wasn't supposed to happen.

I wasn't around for the Van Horn years but I think I know how that felt. And I think there are many more years of this to come.

Add this in. For every day of baseball, D!Baseball does a "Stat Roundup". Here they recognize the 30 top performing hitters and pitchers on the day by stats.
Pitchers are sorted by a metric called Game Score.

Hroch was number one of all the Saturday guys on the mound all across the country. And he was number one by a wide margin.

If he’s not Big Ten pitcher of the week, we know the fix is in.

Well, rats. Sounds like co-pitchers of the week, then. :)

Indiana is circling the drain. Five straight losses. Surprising.
Circling the drain and about to get flushed. Win, lose, whatever, tomorrow they still have to go to Maryland next week. Oh my.

If Indiana and Michigan both get embarrassed next week (no jinx, just saying) this is a two bid league. Right now they both have absolutely terrible RPIs and it could get worse.
No way the committee gives at-large bids to 100+ RPIs.
