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.

Ohio State dropped a 5-2 decision to the Illinois Fighting Illini, in the middle game of a three-game set on Saturday afternoon at Bill Davis Stadium.

Three Illinois pitchers, led by freshman starter, Kenny Johnson, held the Buckeyes to a season-low three hits on the day.

It didn’t take the Illini long to get on the scoreboard, taking advantage of an ordinary fly ball turned wind aided triple  off the top of the right field wall by leadoff hitter Willie Argo. The sohomore center fielder was promptly driven in two pitches later on a sharp to left field by Craig Lutes as Illinois took a 1-0 lead and were never really threatened the rest of the game.

Jared Strayer Ohio State (osu)

Jared Strayer did a solid job in relief  for the Buckeyes, throwing 5 scoreless innings in the longest outing of his career.

Dan Burkhart extended his team-leading hitting streak to eight games, going 1-3 on the day.

The Buckeyes and Illini will wrap up the three-game set on Sunday at 1:05 p.m at Bill Davis Stadium.

Buckeye Pitchers Bounce Back, Top Marshall 7-4

MEGASPORTSNEWS.COM GAME COVERAGE

Columbus, Ohio – You needed a program to keep track of the number of funks that the baseball Buckeyes snapped out of Wednesday night, as they topped Marshall 7-4.  OSU had lost four of their last five, and been thrashed 14-3 last year and 17-1 earlier this year by the Thundering Herd.  The Buckeyes, who had given up 32 runs in their last two games against Penn State, are now  23-13.  Marshall is 20-22, losing their second game in as many days, after winning seven straight.

Freshman Brett McKinney bounced back from a four-run/three walk/no-outs-recorded relief appearance Sunday against Penn State, allowing no hits and two walks in a five-inning start.  Theron Minium and Jared Strayer followed McKinney and gave up two hits each, and were helped by double plays in the 6th and 7th.

The Buckeyes roughed up Ben Frith for five runs in the first.  Michael Stephens’ groundout scored Zach Hurley, who led off the game with his team-leading 17th double.  Ryan Dew singled in Cory Kovanda, and two batters later, Brian DeLucia crushed a three-run homer to left center.  DeLucia’s 38 RBI’s lead the Buckeyes.

The Buckeyes loaded the bases on three singles in the 7th, and scored twice on Mike Cavilli wild pitches.  Marshall scored their first run on a Strayer wild pitch in the 8th.  The Herd’s Rhett Stafford singled in two runs in the 9th, and Eric Semeniuk another off Eric Best, but Best struck out Kris Hecktor with two on to end the game.
