Southpaw Kyle Hart turned in his third straight masterpiece as the Indiana baseball team downed Michigan, 5-1, at Bart Kaufman Field on Saturday afternoon. The Hoosiers (12-8, 2-0 Big Ten) have taken the first two games of the series and will go for the sweep Sunday afternoon at 1:05 p.m. Hart (3-1) dominated the Wolverines (8-14-1, 0-2 Big Ten), striking out seven and giving up just two hits and three walks in seven scoreless innings.

Nebraska 5, Iowa 1
On a chilly day at Duane Banks Field in Iowa City, Iowa, the Nebraska baseball team (13-8, 1-1 Big Ten) tallied 10 hits on its way to posting a 5-1 win over the Iowa Hawkeyes (13-6, 1-1 Big Ten) to even the three-game weekend series at a game apiece. A day after Christian DeLeon gave the Huskers 8.0 shutout innings, Nebraska starter Chance Sinclair nearly matched the outing on Saturday with 7.0 strong innings on the mound. The only run Sinclair allowed was unearned, and he dropped his ERA from 0.64 to 0.43 on the year. Sinclair has now gone at least 7.0 innings in three of his six starts on the year. RECAP

Ohio State 6, Michigan State 2
The Ohio State baseball team evened its series with Michigan State with a 6-2 win Saturday afternoon at Nick Swisher Field at Bill Davis Stadium. With the win, the Buckeyes improve to 14-7 on the year, 1-1 in Big Ten play, while the Spartans fall to 10-9, also 1-1 in conference play. "We received a really good pitching performance today," Ohio State head coach Greg Beals said. "Outside of the one swing, we pitched a shutout. We got six strong innings from Greg Greve and Jake Post was able to come in and give us three more to finish the ballgame so that was just what we needed." RECAP

Minnesota 5, Northwestern 1
Alec Crawford's seven-inning start and a grand slam by shortstop Michael Handel led the Gophers to a 5-1 win in the noon game. The Gophers had nine hits, and the Wildcats had 11 hits and one error. In Minnesota's first turn at the plate, a single by third baseman Tony Skjefte and walks by catcher Mark Tatera and right fielder Bobby Juan loaded the bases. Handel hit a grand slam, his sixth career home run, over the left field fence to put the Gophers ahead 4-0. Crawford stranded 10 Northwestern baserunners and held the Wildcats to one run in seven innings. He struck out five batters and walked only one. RECAP

Northwestern opened its Big Ten slate Saturday against the Minnesota Golden Gophers by splitting a doubleheader at Lindenwood University in St. Charles, Mo. The Wildcats fell in the opener, 5-1, but rallied to post a one-run victory in the nightcap, 4-3. Ethan Bramschreiber relieved starter Reed Mason after six innings in which he allowed only the three unearned runs. The senior tossed 2.2 scoreless innings with two strikeouts. Jack Quigley came in to record the final out and secure his second save of the season. Stevens had two hits in game two, while four different players scored for the 'Cats. RECAP
