Saturday’s lineup at the Big Ten Tournament

Indiana catcher Josh Phegley

I’m still getting used to the fact that Indiana is still in the tournament. Obvious underdogs not just of the tourney but the Big Ten season in general, they’ve come a long way.

Coming in to the tournament as the #6 seed, they didn’t overwhelm in the first game when they lost 6-1 to Penn State. Since then, they have caught fire. Scoring 35 runs in the next three games behind the bats of Chris Hervey and Josh Phegley, they have won all three do-or-die matches. In those three games, Hervey is 8 for 12 and Phegley is 7 for 14 with 8 rbis.

Jordan Comadena and the rest of the Boilermakers will be ready for the Hoosiers

Today brings a matchup between Indiana and #2 seed Purdue at 3:30. The reward for a win is the task of taking on the Wolverines of Michigan. That game takes place tonight.

If Michigan wins tonight, they will be the 2008 Big Ten Tournament Champions. If not, there will be a re-match Sunday to determine the champion once again proving the benefit of being in the winner’s bracket.
