Ohio State defeated Indiana, 7-1 in a Big Ten Conference game on Friday night in Columbus. Ace All-American Alex Wimmers went the distance and struck out 14 Hoosiers to improve to 7-0 on the season. Ohio State is 18-8 overall and remained tied for first in the Big Ten with a 3-1 record. Indiana’s record is 14-14 overall and the Hoosiers are 1-3 in conference play.

.094 represented the batting average of left-handed hitters this season vs. Wimmers coming in the game. That average was going to get tested vs. Indiana which had four lefty hitters in their lineup, including two of the best hitters in the Big Ten in Alex Dickerson and Jerrud Sabourin. Dickerson came into the game riding a 21-game hitting streak-second longest in the nation- and with 12 home runs and 39 RBI’s to go along with a sky-high .444 batting average. Sabourin was right there in Dickerson’s rare air with a .480 average with 6 homers and 31 RBI’s.

As usual, Wimmers passed the test again. He checked the Hoosier left-handed bats to a 1-15 day at the plate with Sabourin’s ninth-inning single the lone hit allowed.
