An ever-changing lineup for IU baseball

Youth, and the decision for junior second baseman Micah Johnson to undergo surgery, has caused IU Coach Tracy Smith to shuffle his lineup. The Hoosiers lead the Big Ten in errors committed with 61.
However, Smith said he played the lineup Saturday that gave his team the best chance to win. There was a small change in the lineup for Sunday’s game, as redshirt freshman Tim O’Conner replaced fellow redshirt freshman Will Nolden at right field.
