Illini leading 7-2 in suspended game against Buckeyes

Friday night games continue to be plagued by the weather.  Fortunately, Illinois and Ohio State were able to get a good six plus innings in before the game was called.  Even better, the Illini have a good head start on the Buckeyes leading 7-2.

Starter Kevin Manson pitched a gem of a game allowing just two runs (one earned) in 6 innings, walking no one.

It was a balanced offensive attack as eight starters got at least one hit.  CF Kyle Hudson banged out two hits and scored twice.  Ryan Hastings put together 2 hits and including an rbi double.

John Schlichter’s two-run double was key in the Illini’s 3-run 5th. 

The bullpen is rested.  The balance of the game will pick up at 12:05pm Saturday before the scheduled doubleheader.

Go Illini!
