Homers Power First Place Gophers Over Buckeyes in Series Opener


COLUMBUS, OHIO – The Minnesota Golden Gophers combined for 21 hits, 5 home runs, 5-hit pitching, and solid defense to rout the baseball Buckeyes, 16-2 and maintain their one game lead in the Big ten with two games remaining.

The Gophers are only 26-27 overall, but 14-8 in Big Ten play. The Buckeyes are now 10-12 in league play, in 7th place and in danger of missing out of the Big Ten Tournament, to be played in Columbus next week.

The Gophers entered the game ranked in the top four of only one of 13 batting categories in the Big Ten, but lead the league in ERA.

Nick O'Shea (U of Minn)

The Gophers scored six in the first inning, and never looked back. Nick O’Shea is accustomed to the home run trot — crushing his 12th round-tripper of the game with two on and two out in the first — but Matt Puhl, Trip Schultz, and Kyle Geason entered the game with a combined two homers, and left with a combined six. Puhl followed O’Shea with his first career homer in his 186th at-bat, and two batters later Schultz smacked his second of the year. O’Shea has nine homers and 35 RBI’s in his last 20 games, and his 31 RBI’s in Big ten play give him the 8th best single-season mark of all time.

Schultz added another RBI with a sacrifice fly in the third, and AJ Pettersen singled in another run two batters later. Geason hit a solo homer leading off the fifth, and a three-run shot in the 9th.

The Buckeyes’ first hit was Ryan Dew’s 7th homer of the year, leading off the 5th. Chris Griffin singled in Dew with the Buckeyes’ second run in the 7th.

Seth Rosin (U of Minn)

Seth Rosin (7-5) gave up three hits in seven innings for the win, while Drew Rucinski gave up nine runs to fall to 4-4.

Ohio State after building a 3-0 lead, gave up four unaswered runs in the fourth inning, losing 4-3 at Iowa on Saturday afternoon. Ohio State is 26-21 on the season, 9-11 in the Big Ten, while Iowa improves to 23-25, 10-10 in the Big Ten.

Zach Hurley went 2-for-4 for the Buckeyes and Dean Wolosiansky pitched very effectively in the loss, going 7.1 innings, giving up four earned runs while striking out six.

Ohio State took a 1-0 lead in the second inning. Ryan Dew lead off with a single to right and scored on a Matt Streng single to center.

The Buckeyes extended the lead to 3-0 in the third inning. The Buckeyes’ Michael Stephens singled; Brad Hallberg singled with one out; Cory Rupert followed with a single that scored Stephens and Hallberg moved all the way to third. Streng brought in Hallberg to make it 3-0 on a RBI fielder’s choice.

Iowa closer Kevin Lee recorded a one, two, three ninth as Ohio State dropped its fourth consecutive Big Ten series.

The Buckeyes and Hawkeyes conclude the three-game series at 1:05 p.m. Sunday at Duane Banks Field.

Ohio State bounced back from a four-run deficit to gain a badly-needed, 8-4 win over the pesky Illinois Fighting Illini in the third game of the series at Bill Davis Stadium. With the Sunday win, the Buckeyes move to .500 in the Big Ten Conference with a 9-9 record.  Overall, the Buckeyes move to 25-19 while putting to rest a season-long five-game losing streak.

Illinois wins the three-game series, 2 games to 1, but drops to 8-10 with the loss and to 23-22 overall.

Senior Ryan Dew led a 15-hit attack for the Buckeyes with a home run, double and two singles plus he had a career-high five RBI’s. Dew’s Worthington Kilbourne High School teammate, senior Cory Kovanda, had four hits and two runs scored while Zach Hurley and Michael Stephens had two hits apiece. Hurley also scored two runs.

Illinois, as it had done all series, scored first and went up early in the game 4-0.

While the Buckeyes were mounting their comeback, Theron Minium was shutting down the Illini bats from scoring in 3 innings of two-hit, relief work. He picked up the win to improve to 3-2 on the season.

Senior Eric Best pitched the final three innings to pick up his third save of the year. He allowed two hits, walked one and struck out four.

Buckeyes Fall 6-3 to Illini


COLUMBUS, OHIO–Drew Rucinski got stronger as the game wore on, but walked in the go-ahead run in the 9th as the Fighting Illini of Illinois topped the baseball Buckeyes, 6-3.  He threw 123 pitches, following a 124 pitch outing six days ago in a win in Ann Arbor.  Two more Illini scored on a single by Mike Giller off reliever Eric Best.

The infield play of both teams was solid all night, typified by the last play of the game when Josh Parr’s throw from shortstop nipped Ryan Dew with two on.

The Buckeyes (24-18, 8-8 in the Big Ten) have lost nine of their last 12, and six of their last eight in the conference.

The Illini’s Thomas Shelton entered the game with two RBI’s in 32 at bats, and equaled that in his first two times up, with singles in the second and third.

Illini starting pitcher Lee Zerrusen averages over four walks per nine innings, and gave up four walks to the first eight OSU batters. He walked the first three Buckeyes in the second, earning an early exit.  The Buckeyes hit into a double play in both the first and second, but Zach Hurley came through after the second one, driving in Brian DeLucia with a looping two-out single.

The Buckeyes took a 2-1 lead in the third on another looping single–this time by Cory Rupert, plating Michael Stephens.

OSU’s Cory Kovanda had only one homer in his first 144 at bats this year, but got a drive up in the wind and over the fence in left-center in the 4th to tie it up at 3-3.

The Buckeyes kept Willie Argo (34 steals in 37 attempts) off the bases.  He needs only six more steals to tie the Illini single season record of 40.  Rupert robbed him of a hit with a long throw in the 6th, one of two spectacular plays by the senior third baseman.
