IU dropped is third game in two days with a 9-4 loss to San Diego in the second game of Saturday's doubleheader. Alex Dickerson and Dylan Swift tallied 2 hits apiece, and Swift drove in 2 of IU's 4 runs for the game. On the mound, it was the third consecutive poor start for a Hoosier hurler as freshman Jonny Hoffman lasted 1.1 innings and yielded 7 runs on 6 hits. The bright spot in the loss was without a doubt the performance of Drew Leininger. The sophomore left-hander relieved Hoffman and threw 5.2 innings of scoreless baseball, striking out 4 and walking none in the process.
Here's the box score.
Let's hope for a better all-around effort by the Hoosiers tomorrow in the series finale. It would be great to see the guys pick up a victory and not return to Bloomington empty-handed. First pitch is slated for 1pm ET. Go Hoosiers!
