We don't have all the finals, but here's what's happened thus far this Easter Sunday.
Indiana's good season continues as the Hoosiers bounce IPFW, 4-2. Kipp Schutz homered and drove in two. Chris Hervey had two hits and two steals. Tyler Tufts (2-2) went seven innings to post the victory. Tufts gave up five hits, two walks and no earned runs. Tufts struck out five, as well. Chris Squires came on to earn his second save.
Purdue won the first of two against Western Illinois, 11-2. Drew Madia homered and drove in three. Ryne White homered, scored twice and had two RBI. Ben Wolgamot had three hits. Jon Moore also collected three hits. Connor Sestak went five innings to get his first win of 2008. Sestak allowed only two hits and three walks that resulted in a single earned run. Sestak fanned five.
The Boilers have just exploded for 12 runs in the fourth to lead WIU, 14-4, in game two.
Northwestern dropped both ends of a split doubleheader. Kansas outslugged the Wildcats, 12-11. KU catcher Buck Afenir drove in five on three hits including his third homer. NU's Jake Goebbert did one better, as he had four hits (and, yes, his third homer) and drove in six. Freshman 3B Chris Lashmet also went yard and had two RBI.
Dartmouth was one better than NU in game two, 6-5. Alas, I've got nothing to report on this game as of yet.
Lehigh dropped Penn State, 3-1. Lehigh broke a 1-1 tie with two runs in the top of the ninth. Joe Ercolano had three hits and two RBI to lead Lehigh. Greg Angelo went eight innings holding the Nittany Lions to four hits and a run. Jordan Warncke got the final two outs for Lehigh. The Nittany Lions wasted another good outing from Mike Wanamaker. Wanamker went seven giving up five hits, three walks and a run. Ryan Boonie drove in the lone PSU run.
PSU is up in the second game, 2-0, in the second inning.
There's nothing to report from the Minnesota vs. South Dakota State contest as of yet.
The proposed twinbill between Oakland and Michigan State was postponed. Again. I'm not surprised as the snow remains on my lawn in spite of the sunshine. This game won't be played tomorrow, either, as OU returns to Ann Arbor to make up for last Wednesday postponement versus Michigan.
