Behind 6 strong innings on the mound from freshman Walker Stadler and homeruns from Jerrud Sabourin and Alex Dickerson, the Hoosiers salvaged the trip to San Diego with a 7-5 victory in the series finale Sunday afternoon. Stadler gave up 3 runs on 7 hits and 2 walks while striking out 5 to pick up his first career win and lift IU to its first victory of the season. Chris Squires pitched the final two innings to pick up the save. At the plate, Sabourin, Dickerson and Sterling Mack each had a pair of hits, and that trio plus Josh Lyon and Jerry Kleman all drove in runs.
Here's the box score and the recap from IUHoosiers.com.
It was great to see the guys get a much needed win today. Hopefully they can build off the victory and make some noise in next weekend's Big Ten/Big East Challenge down in Florida. Go Hoosiers!
