Arnett Shines In IU Triumph

Indiana humbled Purdue in Game Two of the Big Ten Tournament, 9-1. Co-Big Ten Pitcher of the Year, Eric Arnett held the Boilermakers to just four hits and a walk over seven shutout innings. The IU righty fanned ten. Michael Earley and Brian Lambert each drove in two runs for the Hoosiers. Kipp Schutz had a three-hit game. Dan Black led Purdue's counter-attack with a pair of hits.

The Boilermakers will now face Michigan State in an elimination game tomorrow. Indiana will take on Minnesota and Illinois will play Ohio State. The Hoosiers/Gophers contest will be the middle game (3:35pm) and the Illini/Buckeyes will begin around 7pm. All games are on the Big Ten Network.
