Club team transfer makes splash before Iowa series

·

IU returns home for a three-game, in-conference series Friday afternoon at Sembower Field with a new face in the bullpen. Alex Zerman, an IU junior who began the 2010 season playing for the University’s club baseball team, joined the Hoosiers officially Monday before making his first appearance on the mound in Tuesday’s contest at Valparaiso.

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. But in between decisions about pitching changes, double switches or pinch hitters, Smith admits a select few of those songs booming through the Sembower Field public address system still manage to grab his attention.

Pitching biggest concern as IU faces Valparaiso

·

The IU baseball team faces an early mid-week non conference test as it travels to Gary to face Valparaiso (11-18). The Hoosiers (15-15) were only able to take one of three from Ohio State, the preseason Big Ten favorites, last weekend. Valparaiso is coming off a weekend in which it took two out of three on the road against Youngstown State.

Monar looks to pitch after early season injury

·

At this point in the 2010 season, the IU baseball team hoped to have its anticipated preseason pitching ace on the mound, winning games and leading an undermanned pitching staff. Instead, sophomore Blake Monar hasn’t started on the rubber since the season’s first game in February at San Diego due to a strained rotator cuff. He’s played sparingly since as a pinch hitter for the Hoosiers.

Hoosier bats come alive in 12-6 win against BSU

·

Battling 25 to 30 mph gusts of wind that were blowing out to center field all day, the Hoosiers (14-13) offensive attack was not as powerful as Sunday’s, but they did hit five home runs in a 12-6 victory against Ball State (11-16) on Tuesday.

Out of Left Field

·

Louisville outfielder Kyle Grieshaber probably didn’t think much of the small seating area behind him in left field prior to Tuesday’s game against the IU baseball team. But afterwards, the freshman surely knew about “Tracy’s Terrace,” thanks to about 15 people stationed along the Sembower Field fence, just yards from where he stood.

Sweet Home Indiana

A day removed from a loss at Morehead State that totaled 35 runs by both clubs, the IU baseball team didn’t lose a thing at the plate in its first home game of the 2010 season. Six home runs, a school record-tying, five-hit day for junior first baseman Jerrud Sabourin and a clinching five-run seventh inning produced a 17-8 winning effort for the Hoosiers (10-10) at Sembower Field.
