Sycamores trounce IU pitching

A rough day for most of IU’s mid-week pitchers and a sluggish offensive performance contributed to a blowout loss for IU baseball at the hands of an in-state foe and left the Hoosiers’  head coach displeased with the current competitiveness of his squad.

Marching to their own beat

IU coach Tracy Smith typically has a few more important things to think about during a game than what his players have chosen as their at-bat or pitching introduction music.

Valparaiso is coming off a weekend in which it took two out of three on the road against Youngstown State.
