The Baseball Buckeyes put 17 hits in beating Northwestern 11-1 in the Big Ten opener on Friday afternoon in the Windy City suburb of Evanston, Illinois.

Alex Wimmers picked up the win and is now 6-0; the first Ohio State starting pitcher to start the season at 6-0 since Cory Luebke began 7-0 in 2007.

Wimmers, a junior right-hander pitched seven innings, allowing six hits and one earned run while striking out five.

There were several stars of the game to support Wimmers. Cory Rupert had a four-hit day while Dan Burkhart and Ryan Dew each had three for the Buckeyes. Dew finished with three runs batted in and three runs scored and Brian DeLucia scored three runs.

The Ohio State offense gave their ace pitcher a nice lead in the top of the first inning, scoring four runs. Zach Hurley led the game off with a home run to left and Ryan Dew had a key two-run triple to center that drove in Burkhart and Michael Stephens as the Buckeyes batted around with six hits.

The Northwestern number 1, 2 and 3 batters were a combined 1-for-12.

The 15-7 Buckeyes  and Northwestern will play game 2 of the three-game series on Saturday at 2 p.m.
