Illinois scores four in last-at bat to drop baseball Buckeyes

The Ohio State baseball team was leading 4-1 on Thursday against Illinois and all they needed was three outs and the game was theirs in the Big Ten Tournament.

But Illinois, the Big Ten co-champion of the regular season, had other ideas as they came up with a last at bat comeback win. The Illini scored four runs in the ninth inning for its 19th comeback win of the season and stunned the Buckeyes, 5-4 at Huntington Park.

The loss puts the Buckeyes into the elimination game against Minnesota.

The Buckeyes, who dropped to 26-26, had ridden the home run power of Brian DeLucia and Greg Solomon and another solid start from Brett McKinney to build a 4-1 lead going into the ninth inning.

But the Illini, facing OSU’s closer Josh Dezse for a second inning, started to time his pitches and bunched five hits and a walk to pull off its fifth consecutive last-at bat win. Davis Hendrickson hit the first pitch he saw from Andrew Armstrong into left field to score the winning run.

Ohio State starting pitcher Drew Rucinski cruised through the first two innings until the Gophers took a 1-0 lead in the top of the fourth.

On the other side, Minnesota starter T.J. Oakes retired 10 consecutive Buckeyes before a leadoff single in the fifth by David Corna.

After giving up a run in the fourth, Rucinski shut down the Gophers during the middle innings, but he ran into trouble in the eighth and was knocked out of the game. Minnesota upped their lead to 3-0 against reliever Andrew Armstrong.

Ohio State finally woke up the bats in the eighth inning by scoring five runs on five hits and two Gophers errors.

With Minnesota up 3-2, closer Scott Matyas struck out Josh Dezse before Matt Streng single into right field to score Tim Wetzel to tie the game at 3-3. Ryan Cypret then scored the go-ahead run on a failed pickoff attempt by the catcher and Corna doubled off the top of the left field fence to score Streng and the Buckeyes led 5-3.

Rucinski pitched 7.1 innings, giving up three runs on eight hits while striking out three. Jared Strayer picked up the win in relief for the Buckeyes to improve his record to 4-3 on the season while Dezse worked a perfect ninth inning for his fifth save of the season.
