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.

The Ohio State Buckeyes and the Northwestern Wildcats cooked up a wild finish in the final game of their three-game series.

A throwing error by the Wildcats in the ninth inning allowed Brian DeLucia to score the winning run in a wild 15-14 Big Ten contest in Bill Davis Stadium.

The Buckeyes up their record to 10-11, 2-1 while Northwestern falls to 8-15, 1-2.

The Buckeyes blew a 14-7 lead after six innings as the Wildcats rallied to tie the score at 14-14.

DeLucia walked to lead off the ninth inning for Ohio State and scored all the way from first base when Wildcats reliever Paul Snieder overthrew first base on Tim Wetzel’s sacrifice bunt attempt and the ball sailed down the right-field line.

OSU comes back to beat Northwestern, 7-2

Game story from Christopher Henderson

The Ohio State Buckeyes baseball team has a different makeup this year and its just not in the coaching staff.

On the field, the Buckeyes will have to play almost a perfect game. They will not be able to blow teams off the field because they lost six star players from Bob Todd’s final team. They lost several key players to the Major League Baseball draft, ace pitcher Alex Wimmers in the first round to the Minnesota Twins, catcher Dan Burkhart, left fielder Zach Hurley and second baseman Cory Kovanda.

Case-in-point was new head coach Greg Beals’ first Big Ten win over Northwestern. Ohio State scored four runs in the seventh inning without getting the ball out of the infield in the comeback win of 7-2 in Bill Davis Stadium.

OSU starter Drew Rucinski allowed five hits and struck out five in taking a 1-0 lead into the seventh inning. However, the Wildcats started to zero in on Rucinski’s pitches. Northwestern designated hitter Jack Livingston had a lead-off triple off the centerfield wall. Geoff Rowan followed with a run-scoring single to left. Later in the inning, Rowan scored on an infield single by Patrick Miller and the Bucks were trailing 2-1.

Wildcats starting pitcher Luke Farrell was just as stingy on the Buckeyes. But they got to him and scored four runs on two hits in the bottom of the seventh to take back the lead for good at 5-2.

The interesting inning stacked up this way. The first run scored when David Corna was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded, the second came across on a wild pitch, the third on an infield single by Brian DeLucia and the fourth on a passed ball.

The win upped OSU to 9-10 on the season.
