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.
