"We ran into a buzz saw tonite in Wimmers. Good news is we wont see him again this wkend. Igel starting to settle in - good for us."- Tracy Smith
I think this Tweet from Coach Smith pretty much sums up the game in a nutshell. Matt Igel pitched well, but the dominance of pitching sensation Alex Wimmers simply couldn't be matched. The reigning Big Ten co-Pitcher of the Year went the distance in this one, yielding just 6 hits and striking out 14 in doing so.

The outcome of Game 1 was pretty much what I expected. Hopefully the Hoosiers will rebound today and add another W to the win column.
