Indiana State earns 1,400th program win in upset of #16 Creighton, 76-57

The Blue Jays came into the game as college basketball’s top shooting team, but could muster just 41.7 percent shooting during the game.

Jake Odum lead host Indiana State with 22 points and eclipsed the 1,000-point barrier for his career.

Indians lose 16-inning, 5-hour marathon Opening Day game to Toronto

Thursday’s Opening Day game epitomized many things.

Toronto utility player Omar Vizquel, a former Cleveland Indians star, played in left field and at first base, two positions he rarely ever plays.

But after all, if Indians closer Chris Perez had closed out a 4-1 lead 2 1/2 hours earlier, there would never have been a 5-hour, 14-minute, 16-inning affair nor would Vizquel have played those two positions.

The Indians lost 7-4 to the Blue Jays which is now the longest game in Opening Day history in Major League Baseball.

With about 5,000 fans left in stands at Progressive Field, Toronto won the game in the 16th on a three-run homer by J.P. Arencibia.

The Tribe wasted a great pitching performance by improving right-hander, Justin Masterson, who was cruising along with a 4-1 lead in eight innings and 10 strikeouts.

Accardo has pitched in 235 games with Baltimore, Toronto and San Francisco since 2005. Accardo, who is 30, was the Blue Jays’ closer in 2007 and had a record of 4-4 with 30 saves and an ERA of 2.14.

In 2011, he pitched in 31 games for the Orioles and also spent time with their Triple-A team in Norfolk.
