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.

Homers Power First Place Gophers Over Buckeyes in Series Opener


COLUMBUS, OHIO – The Minnesota Golden Gophers combined for 21 hits, 5 home runs, 5-hit pitching, and solid defense to rout the baseball Buckeyes, 16-2 and maintain their one game lead in the Big ten with two games remaining.

The Gophers are only 26-27 overall, but 14-8 in Big Ten play. The Buckeyes are now 10-12 in league play, in 7th place and in danger of missing out of the Big Ten Tournament, to be played in Columbus next week.

The Gophers entered the game ranked in the top four of only one of 13 batting categories in the Big Ten, but lead the league in ERA.

Nick O'Shea (U of Minn)

The Gophers scored six in the first inning, and never looked back. Nick O’Shea is accustomed to the home run trot — crushing his 12th round-tripper of the game with two on and two out in the first — but Matt Puhl, Trip Schultz, and Kyle Geason entered the game with a combined two homers, and left with a combined six. Puhl followed O’Shea with his first career homer in his 186th at-bat, and two batters later Schultz smacked his second of the year. O’Shea has nine homers and 35 RBI’s in his last 20 games, and his 31 RBI’s in Big ten play give him the 8th best single-season mark of all time.

Schultz added another RBI with a sacrifice fly in the third, and AJ Pettersen singled in another run two batters later. Geason hit a solo homer leading off the fifth, and a three-run shot in the 9th.

The Buckeyes’ first hit was Ryan Dew’s 7th homer of the year, leading off the 5th. Chris Griffin singled in Dew with the Buckeyes’ second run in the 7th.

Seth Rosin (U of Minn)

Seth Rosin (7-5) gave up three hits in seven innings for the win, while Drew Rucinski gave up nine runs to fall to 4-4.

Down 16 Points, Lavender is unstoppable in leading Ohio State to Big Ten Tournament Title

Another trophy for women's basketball (espn)

Jantel Lavender was on top of her game on Sunday. She had to be or the Ohio State women’s basketball team would’ve been blown out by a hungry and pesky Iowa team on Sunday afternoon in Indianapolis.

Lavender tied a Big Ten tournament record with 35 points, grabbing 10 rebounds, went over 2,000 career points and led her team to an unbelievable comeback when it seemed all afternoon that they were going to lose.

She capped the exciting second-half comeback by making two free throws with 1.9 seconds left to give number 10 Ohio State, the Big Ten Tournament title, 66-64 over Iowa.

The junior center was named the tourney’s most Outstanding Player for the second time. The only other two-time winner was Purdue’s Shereka Wright.

Jantel tied the tournament scoring record, a feat that had been achieved three other times, most recently in 2001 by Illinois’ Allison Curtin. Lavender needed less than 10 minutes to extend Division I’s longest active streak of consecutive double-figures scoring games to 100 and Lavender became the third Buckeye to top 2,000 career points on the same day the Buckeyes (30-4) tied a school record for victories.

Lavender’s record-setting day also included helping the Buckeyes four seniors tie another school record with their 109th career victory and most important, locked up the automatic berth to the NCAA tournament. Ohio State is the first team, other than Purdue, to win back-to-back tourney titles since Penn State in 1995 and 1996.

If the women’s basketball team is going to advance in the upcoming NCAA tournament, they’ll need more than Jantel Lavender to do all of the scoring.

Yesterday, point guard Samantha Prahalis was slowed by foul trouble and lost her poise several times. Ohio State’s 3-point shooters struggled, going 5 of 17, and Iowa (19-13) was not intimidated and played their game most of the day, pressure defense, driving to the basket and getting the Buckeyes into foul trouble.

Kamille Wahlin led Iowa with 20 points, Kelly Krei scored 18 and grabbed 8 rebounds.

The Hawkeyes took control of the game from the beginning, quickly leading 20-9 at the 14:02 mark in the first half en route to a 41-33 halftime lead.

Iowa kept the pressure on Ohio State in the second half. They went on an 8-0 run, 1:35 into the period to go up 49-33 while drawing the 3rd fouls on Samantha Prahalis and Brittany Johnson.

But Ohio State why they’re the best in the Big Ten, by rallying for the win.

Prahalis led them on a 10-0 run to get OSU to within 51-47 with 10:17 to go. Lavender made it a 2-point game with a 5-foot bank shot with 5:25 to go, and Prahalis followed with a driving scoop shot to tie the score at 60 with 5:04 left.

Lavender followed up with two free throws to break the tie, and Iowa scored four straight points to retake a 64-62 lead with a 2:34 left. Jantel Lavender then tied it with a rebound follow at 1:18.

Iowa committed a turnover and then Ohio State went to its leader, Jantel Lavender and she made to free throws to win the game. There were 6, 832 fans in attendance at Conseco Fieldhouse in Indianapolis.
