Indiana Baseball extended their winning streak to five earlier today when they took on the Boston College Eagles in game two of the Snowbird Baseball Classic.
The Hoosiers got off to a hot start in this one, as they jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the top of the first. Matt Lloyd sent one over the left field fence to open the scoring and Elijah Dunham brought another run in with a sac fly after a pair of singles from Luke Miller and Logan Sowers.
It didn’t take long for IU to add to their lead, as Luke Miller drove in a run in the top of the second inning with a bases-loaded single to make the score 3-0.
From that point on it was smooth sailing for the Hoosiers, as they got quite the performance from junior Pauly Milto. The right-hander pitched a gem, giving up just four hits and striking out eight batters in a complete game shutout. That comes after a solid start last week for Milto, who pitched six innings of one-hit baseball in an Indiana win against Kansas State.
In the top of the seventh, Indiana extended their lead to four when Logan Sowers scored on an RBI single by Ryan Fineman.
Indiana once again showed off their depth in this one, as seven different Hoosiers had a hit and four different Hoosiers drove in a run against the Eagles. Matt Gorski, in particular, had a good outing, as he didn’t record any RBIs but he went 3-4 with a double and scored a run.
Next up for the Hoosiers will be a matchup with the Chicago State Cougars tomorrow at 10:30 a.m. The Cougars were ranked 284th in RPI last season and currently hold a 4-1 record with wins over the murderer’s row of LIU-Brooklyn, St. Bonaventure, and Mount St. Mary’s. Indiana will be looking to complete the weekend sweep and extend their winning streak to six games total before heading to San Diego for a big four-game series with the Toreros.
