FINAL: Indiana 12, Minnesota 3
7:13 p.m.: A thoughtful gesture by the Indiana dugout, who just tossed a ball to a young fan.
7:08 p.m.: Last chance for Minnesota who trails 12-3 as we go to the last of the ninth.

6:38 p.m.: Indiana gets three more, including two on an RBI hit from Tyler Rogers, making it a 10-0 ballgame.
6:20 p.m.: A large crowd is continuing to filter in. The atmosphere for every game in the tournament has been great, but with Ohio State playing in front of the Columbus fans tonight, it should be exceptionally exciting!
6:05 p.m.: Indiana makes it 7-0 on another RBI single from Kipp Schutz.

4:47 p.m.: Minnesota players draw two walks but can't push anything across in the home half of the first.
4:29 p.m.: Indiana jumps out to a 2-0 lead on RBI singles by Josh Phegley and Kipp Schutz.
