Buckeyes Win, Spartans Split

(25) Ohio State's Michael Stephens and Dan Burkhart drove in three runs a piece as the Buckeyes triumphed over Akron, 7-3.

Michigan State split a twinbill with Eastern Michigan. The Spartans took the opener, 6-5. The Eagles won the nightcap, 6-1.

Wisconsin-Milwaukee dropped Northwestern, 7-2, while Indiana steamrolled Western Illinois 17-2. IU freshman DH Alex Dickerson drove in five runs. CF Brian Lambert was a perfect 5-for-5.

Iowa was losing to Creighton, 7-2, in the bottom of the fifth. A very tough Indiana State squad is ahead of Illinois, 7-6, in the seventh inning. The Sycamores are not easily dismissed this season.

Penn State was up on LaSalle, 8-0, in the sixth inning. Minnesota's game against South Dakota State was canceled due to impending weather.

Update: Indiana State allowed Illinois to climb back into the lead late, but the Sycamores came back to win, 11-10. Penn State beat LaSalle, 9-3. Creighton dusted off Iowa, 12-3.
