Illini Crush UNI

It may be one of those seasons for the Illini.  The kind of year where you’re not sure what team will show up.  They got swept in their first series, then did the sweeping themselves the next.  Last weekend, they won one but lost the last three games.  You just never know.

Fortunately, so far Illinois is doing just fine this weekend.  Saturday, against University of Northern Iowa the Illini did well with the stick and were helped by some poor fielding by the opposition.  They totaled 19 hits including 3 by Lars Davis (that guy is a hitting machine, he’s batting .442 for the season), Ryan Hastings, and Kyle Hudson. 

Jake Toohey has seen better starts, though.  He allowed 7 runs in 4 innings.  Relievers Ben Meeser and Brian Long pitched 5 shutout innings to keep the good guys in the game.  Final score:  13-8

UI takes on sister campus University of Illinois-Chicago this afternoon. 

Don’t forget!  One week from Friday (March 31) is Illinois’ first home game at home game against Purdue.
