Illinois 5, Iowa 1
The Orange and Blue only needed two pitchers and allowed one run for the second straight day, as the Illini equaled their season-long winning streak of six games with a 5-1 victory over Iowa. Starter John Kravetz pitched into the eighth inning and improved to 6-1, while senior Ronnie Muck earned his second save with 1.2 scoreless stanzas. Every Illini in the lineup contributed offensively. "We played a much better game today than we did yesterday," head coach Dan Hartleb said. "John was outstanding. He only ran into a little trouble in the eighth, then Ronnie came in and did a very, very good job." Illinois (29-17) tied its mark from 2009 with the best Big Ten record through 20 games under Hartleb at 15-5 and remained in second place in the conference standings. The only other time the Illini won 15 of their first 20 Big Ten games was in 2009. RECAP

Junior Chance Sinclair improved to 8-1 on the year, while Pat Kelly was 2-for-3 at the plate with his first career two-double game and three RBIs. Josh Roeder closed the door in the ninth for his 11th save of the season, the most saves by a Husker since 2006 when Brett Jensen closed 13 games. Sinclair posted his seventh outing of at least 7.0 innings on the year, as he allowed three runs on six hits and no walks over 7.0 innings. The Spring Hill, Kan., native retired the first eight Spartans he faced and also the last eight Spartans he faced. Outside of a 25-pitch fifth inning, Sinclair didn't top 13 pitches in any other inning and faced just three MSU batters in five of his seven innings on the afternoon. RECAP

Sam Travis and Kyle Schwarber both hit solo home runs as No. 8 Indiana used six extra-base hits to defeat Penn State on Saturday afternoon, 8-1.

Travis also added an RBI double as he went 2-for-5 on the day with two RBI and a pair of runs scored. The home run was his ninth of the season. Travis now has 49 RBI on the year to lead the team and the Big Ten. Schwarber's solo shot was his lone hit of the day as he also reached on a walk to score two times. His home run ties Travis for the team lead. Schwarber's RBI total is now 31 on the year. Starting pitcher Christian Morris improved to 4-3 on the year with the win.
