IU junior Jerrud Sabourin tries to pick off a Vanderbilt baserunner during the team's 6-5 loss Sunday.

Despite IU junior Jerrud Sabourin making the biggest impact in the 2010 season for the Hoosiers with his bat, the innings he pitched Sunday against Vanderbilt were a big reason the Hoosiers took the ranked Commodores to extra innings.

Big Ten/Big East Challenge awaits Hoosiers

During the 2010 season’s first four games, the IU baseball team’s starting pitching staff averaged less than three innings of work per game.
That number has to change, IU head coach Tracy Smith said, in time for the Hoosiers’ three-game trip this weekend for the Big Ten/Big East Challenge.
