Next Game:

Game #4

Fri Feb 29, 6:30 pm

Record: 2-1

vs Baylor #24

at Waco, Tx

It’s back to Lone State for the Illini baseball team as they play in the Quala-T Imprints Baylor Classic tournament.  First up on Leap Day is the home team, Baylor:

 

Opponent: Baylor
Nickname: Bears
Conference: Big 12
Head Coach: Steve Smith (14th year)
Location: Waco, Texas
Current Record: 4-0
Baseball Program website: Link
Players to watch: Baylor probable starter Kendal Volz was the Big 12’s pitcher of the week.  He held Purdue scoreless through 8 innings. 
Team Fact: Despite Baylor’s 4-0 record and #24 ranking, Illinois did win the only time the only time these two teams faced. 

 

Right hander Scott Shaw is due to pitch for the Illini.  In game one against Sam Houston last week, Shaw was really on his game pitching five shutout innings until he ran into trouble in the sixth allowing 4 runs.  Illinois came back to win that game 6-4. 

Gametracker is of course available but if you are interested in a live audio/video feed, you should be able to get it from the Baylor Bears web site.
