By Carl James @jovian34 May 17th, 2023
In a total team effort last night, Indiana took and methodically held on to a lead all game to defeat Evansville 6-2 and improve to an astonishing 26-4 at home on the year. Ethan Phillips got the win with 4 innings of work, allowing only one run to score. Luke Hayden earned the save with 4 innings of work on the back end, also giving up just one run. Tyler Cerny paced the Hoosier bats with three hits, while Brock Tibbitts and Bobby Whalen each added a pair of hits. After the game, the media spoke to head coach Jeff Mercer, Whalen and Hayden.
The Hoosiers travel to East Lansing for a three game series at Michigan State. The entire series will be on B1G Network with Thursday and Friday games at 8pm Eastern, and Saturday’s game at 3pm Eastern. While this year’s home slate is concluded, a day will come when we will See You at the BART.
