Illinois 10, Michigan State 9
Junior Casey Fletcher found the perfect way to cap off the best week of baseball in his life. The Oakwood, Ill., native poked a game-winning two-run single the opposite way with two outs in the bottom of the ninth for his second walk-off hit in as many days. Illinois overcame an 8-3 deficit with four runs in the seventh and three in the ninth to win 10-9, marking the third one-run comeback victory in the weekend sweep of Michigan State. "I don't know what's going on," Fletcher said. "I just keep getting put into spots to help the team win and I came through again. I'm just ecstatic right now. It's unbelievable. It's a great feeling to get the sweep of Michigan State." RECAP
