Indiana Baseball Loses to Texas, Eliminated From NCAA Tournament

The Indiana University baseball team’s 2018 season has come to an end at the Austin Regional of the NCAA Tournament.  After advancing earlier in the day with a 9-7 win over Texas A&M, the Hoosiers came up short against the host Texas Longhorns.  The final score was Texas 3, Indiana 2.

Hoosier starter Andrew Saalfrank gave IU a strong outing, going 5 and a third, giving up 6 hits and 2 earned runs.  The sophomore lefthander struck out eight.  The IU bullpen combination of Tommy Sommer and Cal Krueger was strong as well, giving up just 1 run.  Krueger pitched two scoreless innings.

Indiana just couldn’t come up with timely hits at the plate.  Despite 9 hits, IU only managed to manufacture 2 runs on the night.

Luke Miller had 3 hits and drove in a run.  Scotty Bradley had 2 hits and scored a run.  Jeremy Houston had a hit and drove in a run.

The Hoosiers had the bases loaded in the bottom of the ninth but were unable to push any runs across.

Indiana finished the season at 40-19.
