Indiana takes two out of three from Nebraska, moves up to No. 14 in polls

Indiana third baseman Dustin DeMuth went 2-for-5 with a home run and four RBIs, catcher Chad Clark drove in two runs, and right-hander Aaron Slegers held Nebraska to two runs on five hits in 8 1/3 innings on Monday as the Hoosiers beat the Huskers 10-2 to take two out of three in the series. Indiana improves to 36-9 overall, 13-5 in the Big Ten. With two regular season series left to go, they are behind Minnesota (28-15, 11-4) by percentage points (.733 to .722) for first place in the conference.

Earlier in the day, the Hoosiers experienced a slight bump in the polls, moving up to No. 14 in Baseball America’s Top 25. 

They also moved up to No. 15 in the Perfect Game Top 25, No. 16 in the National College Baseball Writers Association Top 25 and No. 16 in the ESPN/USA Today Top 25.

  1. Congrats to AD Glass, Coach Smith and especially the Hoosier Baseball team for getting it done.
    Can anyone say CapitalONE Cup?

  2. Why are there so many polls for baseball? Which one is referenced the most? Seems too confusing.

  3. All that matters is Omaha. I can’t wait to go. A trip to the college world series will make up for the atlanta disappointment.

  4. Keith, my thoughts exactly! Those slugs that criticize Glass need to pay attention. Let’s see, just off the top of my head, improving football program, National Champions in Men’s soccer, Big Ten Men’s basketball champions, top 20 ranked baseball team. New women’s basketball coach, new women’s soccer coach, new diving coach. Glass has been a very busy guy, and it appears to me that he’s doing a great job!

  5. Exactly Podunker! Glass is doing a heck of a job. As the quality of on field performance continues to improve, the coaching staffs will receive well deserved salary bumps to keep other schools from stealing our talent. I won’t be too hard on the detractors, because we all have one thing in common. We want to see the IU athletics programs succeed. But it is refreshing to see someone as yourself looking at the forest and not just the trees.
