IU picked up its third win of the season with a 6-4 victory over Illinois State on Friday afternoon. Walker Stadler turned in another strong performance, throwing 5.1 innings while giving up 2 runs on 5 hits and 3 walks to go along with 3 strikeouts. Mike McKinley relieved Stadler in the 6th, and while he gave up 2 runs in just 2 innings of work, it was enough for the freshman to pick up his second win of the year. Chris Squires came on to pitch the final 1.2 innings and did not allow a run to cross the plate in picking up the save.
At the plate, Jerrud Sabourin led the way once again with 3 hits and a RBI. Sterling Mack drove in 2 runs, and Josh Lyon and Tyler Rogers registered a RBI a piece as well.
The Hoosiers are now 3-5 on the year, and they will return to action tomorrow afternoon at 1pm ET to face Kent State. Go Hoosiers!
