Some key Indiana stats:

- Runs per game: 14th
- 9th in ERA at 2.66.
Beavs usually have a significant pitching advantage but batting disadvantage. This game, the pitching is neutralized, and Indiana has the better offense. Should be interesting.
Indiana is throwing Aaron Slegers (9-1, 2.13 earned run average), who stands 6″10. The pitchers seem to keep getting larger as the games do, too. The Beavs looked so tiny versus Texas A&M (didn’t see Louisville, unfortunately). Gotta say, I look forward to seeing Max Gordon vs Slegers. We know what the Beavs need to win…same as always: a good start from Boyd, executing small ball, fielding, yada yada. I think this game could come down to executing a squeeze or hit and run. I’m not counting on 11 runs again. I’m thinking something like 5-4 or 4-3 final for whomever executes best.
