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.

The best-of-seven American League Championships Series gets underway tonight in Arlington, Texas.

The New York Yankees will pitch their ace C.C. Sabathia (21-7) against C.J. Wilson (15-8). The game starts at 8:07 p.m.

Both teams have power.

The Rangers hit eight homers in five games against Tampa Bay.

The Yankees go deep with power and patience at the plate. They led MLB in on-base percentage and hit four homers in three games against the Minnesota Twins.

The Yankees have the edge in closing out postseason games with closer Mariano Rivera. The rubber-armed Rivera has pitched in 30 postseason games in his career.

The Rangers have never won a playoff game at home, losing six straight.

AL DIVISION SERIES: Yankees rally past Twins, 6-4

The Minnesota Twins played their first outdoor postseason game in Minneapolis since 1970. They had hoped a move from the Metrodome to their brand-new home stadium, Target Field would give them the boost they needed to finally beat the mighty New York Yankees.

Target Field was not enough to help the Twins.

Mark Teixeira (MLB)

Mark Teixeira hit a tiebreaking, two-run homer in the seventh inning and the New York Yankees rallied past Minnesota in Game 1 of the AL division series. It was the Twins’ 10th straight postseason loss.

Yankees starter C.C. Sabathia had trouble with his control and labored most of the game, which was played at night. Closer Mariano Rivera recorded the final four outs as the Yankees came back from a 3-0 deficit against Francisco Liriano.

The Yankees are 10-2 against the Twins in the playoffs since 2003.

Michael Cuddyer homered, doubled and drove home two runs for Minnesota.
