*****NBA****

***BOSTON (AP) Giannis Antetokounmpo had already picked up his dribble and spent half of a Eurostep when he realized he had nowhere to go with the ball.

Instead of attempting an off-balance shot or passing the ball to a well-guarded teammate, the two-time NBA MVP flicked the ball high off the backboard, then followed it to the rim for a slam dunk.

“That’s just pure talent, just pure instinct,” Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer said on Sunday after Antetokounmpo recorded his second career postseason triple-double in a 101-89 victory over the Boston Celtics.

“He’s a great player. He does things that are unique and special and timely,” Budenholzer said. “That’s one of those plays where you’re happy he’s on our side.”

Antetokounmpo had 24 points, 13 rebounds and 12 assists as Milwaukee quickly grabbed home-court advantage in the second-round series. Jrue Holiday had 25 points and 10 rebounds and Bobby Portis had 15 points and 11 boards for the defending NBA champions.

Game 2 is Tuesday night in Boston.

Jayson Tatum scored 21 and Jaylen Brown had 12 points, but the two Boston stars combined to shoot 10 for 31 in the game. Al Horford added 12 points and 10 rebounds for the Celtics, who fired up 50 3-pointers, making 18, and shot 33% from the floor as a team.

***MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) Klay Thompson hit a go-ahead 3-pointer with 36 seconds left, and the Golden State Warriors overcame Draymond Green’s first-half ejection to edge the Memphis Grizzlies 117-116 on Sunday in Game 1 of the Western Conference semifinals.

Jordan Poole led the Warriors with 31 points off the bench, hitting 5 of 10 3-pointers. Stephen Curry added 24 points, Andrew Wiggins had 17 and Thompson finished with 15.

Green was ejected for a flagrant foul just before halftime.

Thompson missed both free throws with 6.7 seconds left, then Memphis won a jump ball before taking a timeout with 3.6 seconds remaining to set up the final play. The Grizzlies ran a play similar to Ja Morant’s last-second layup to win Game 5 in the first round, but Morant’s layup went over the rim.

Morant finished with 34 points and 10 assists, and Jaren Jackson Jr. matched his season high with six 3-pointers and had a career-high 33 points as Memphis’ first pair of teammates to score at least 30 in a playoff game. D’Anthony Melton added 14, and Brandon Clarke had 12.

The Grizzlies finished their first-round series by coming back from double-digit deficits in their final three wins – the first team in NBA history to do that more than once in a postseason, let alone a series. They came in leading the NBA in the fourth with an average of 33 points and outscoring opponents by 10.3 points a game.

This time, they could only match the Warriors point for point in the period.

Memphis edged the Warriors out for the No. 2 seed in the West by tying the franchise record with 56 wins, and the Grizzlies also took three of four in their season series. Thompson only played one and Green two of those games and Curry three.

This was a rematch with role reversals from the 2015 semifinal the Warriors won as the younger team with Memphis led by experienced vets. This also was just the first time the Warriors started a conference semifinal on the road and third playoff series Golden State didn’t start at home with Steve Kerr as coach.

The Warriors mixed up their lineup, benching Poole in favor of Gary Payton II to focus on defending Morant, the Grizzlies’ All-Star point guard and the NBA’s Most Improved Player this season.

Morant opened the game with back-to-back 3s, half of what he made the entire first round against Minnesota, and he had 14 to help the Grizzlies lead 32-24 after the first quarter. It marked the first time Memphis held an opponent to fewer than 30 points this postseason.

The Grizzlies led by as much as 13 in the second quarter and were up 61-55 at halftime.

With 1:18 left in the second, Green fouled Brandon Clarke. Officials reviewed the play for several minutes with fans chanting “Throw him out!” Green finished with six points, four rebounds and five turnovers.

Curry was held to eight points in the first half, none in the second and picked up his third foul seconds after Green’s ejection.

Curry was held to eight points in the first half, none in the second. But he scored 13 and Poole had 10 in the third as the Warriors outscored Memphis 36-29 and led 91-90 after the third. Golden State was 14 of 21 shooting in the third, including 5 of 7 outside the arc.

****MLB****

****DENVER (AP) Kyle Freeland tossed seven strong innings for his first win of the season, and the Colorado Rockies completed a series sweep of the struggling Cincinnati Reds 10-1 on Sunday.

Brendan Rodgers broke out of a season-long slump with two hits and four RBIs and C.J. Cron and Randal Grichuk homered for the Rockies.

Rodgers missed the previous four games with a balky back but said he felt good at the plate and at second base.

“Felt good throughout the whole game and felt good in (batting practice),” he said. “I’m just going stay on my exercises and what I’m doing in there and hopefully it’s all good.”

Freeland (1-3), who signed a five-year, $64-million extension on April 19, allowed a run and four hits against a Cincinnati team that is off to its worst start in franchise history. The Reds (3-19) have lost six straight and 17 of their last 18.

Brandon Drury homered and doubled for the Reds, who surpassed the 2018 team that started 4-18.

****MILWAUKEE (AP) Marcus Stroman threw two-hit ball for seven innings, outpitching Cy Young Award winner Corbin Burnes and leading the Chicago Cubs over the Milwaukee Brewers 2-0 Sunday.

Patrick Wisdom homered as the Cubs ended a four-game losing streak. They had been outscored 20-2 in dropping the first two games of the series at Milwaukee.

Stroman (1-3) earned his first win for his new team in his fifth start. Pitching on his 31st birthday, he struck out five and walked one.

“I thought he threw really good,” Cubs manager David Ross said. “I think that’s the version of (himself) that he expects, that we’ve seen over the course of his career. He really controlled the tempo and looked really good.”

Burnes (1-1) struck out 10 in seven innings, giving up four hits. He retired the first 13 batters before Wisdom homered in the fifth.

The Cubs added a run in the sixth when Alfonso Rivas singled and scored on a double by Seiya Suzuki.

“For the most part, we did what we wanted to do,” Burnes said. “Wisdom is a good low ball fastball hitter, so it was one of those pitches he’s not going to miss. Definitely a mistake there then three bad curveballs to Suzuki and he finally hit one down the line. Other than that, it was pretty good.”

Chicago reliever Rowan Wick got two outs in the eighth and David Robertson closed for his fifth save.

****LOS ANGELES (AP) Walker Buehler pitched five scoreless innings and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Detroit Tigers 6-3 on Sunday, overcoming Miguel Cabrera’s 503rd career home run and his first this season.

Cabrera hit a two-run homer off reliever Phil Bickford in the eighth inning to help the Tigers avoid the shutout. Cabrera, who got his 3,000th career hit last week, tied George Brett for 18th in major league history with 1,119 extra-base hits.

Freddie Freeman had a pair of hits and drove in one run, and Mookie Betts scored two runs to help the Dodgers win the series.

Buehler (3-1), who threw his first career shutout in his last outing, needed 23 pitches to get through the first inning. He pitched with a lot of traffic on the bases, but always got out of jams. He scattered six hits and struck out five and walked one. He faced 15 batters through the first three innings, six over the minimum, but retired the side in the fourth and fifth innings.

Dodgers pitchers combined to strike out 13 batters. Alex Vesia fanned the side in the seventh, and Bickford did the same in the eighth despite giving up Cabrera’s homer.

Craig Kimbrel earned his fourth save of the year when he entered with a runner on second and one out in the ninth. He got Eric Haase to ground out, but walked Javier Baez to send the tying run to the plate. Austin Meadows popped up to third base to end it.

Jeimer Candelario hit a solo home run off Justin Bruihl in the ninth for the Tigers, who trailed 6-0 through seven innings and have lost seven of their last eight games.

Detroit starter Eduardo Rodriguez (0-2) allowed eight hits and gave up six runs, four earned, in 5 2/3 innings and was hurt by two errors.

****CHICAGO (AP) Mike Trout homered, doubled and scored three runs, Michael Lorenzen pitched into the ninth inning and the Los Angeles Angels held off the Chicago White Sox 6-5 Sunday for their seventh win in eight games.

Shohei Ohtani had an RBI as the Angels’ designated hitter. The two-way AL MVP went 0 for 3 and exited in the ninth inning because of tightness in his right groin.

Manager Joe Maddon said Ohtani might have tweaked his groin running to first in the seventh inning on a grounder back to pitcher Jose Ruiz that the White Sox turned into a double play.

Through a translator Ohtani said, “I was taken out for safety reasons. I was perfectly OK with it.”

The Japanese-born star said he expects to play on Monday in Chicago against the White Sox.

Trout walked in three other plate appearances. Andrew Velazquez and Jo Adell each doubled in a run and Anthony Rendon each had an RBI as the Angels took a 6-0 lead.

Despite batting .344 – and a major-league leading 1.247 OPS – Trout says he’s still not completely comfortable at the plate yet.

“Some pitches I’m feeling good and some pitches I don’t,” Trout said. “Today I felt pretty good out there.”

So did Lorenzen (3-1), who took a bid for his first career complete game into the ninth before the White Sox scored five times in a wild finish.

Ryan Tepera, the Angels’ third pitcher of the inning, retired Gavin Sheets on a bases-loaded grounder for the final out. Chicago has lost 11 of 13.

Lorenzen gave up singles to Jose Abreu and Sheets singled to begin the ninth, then was pulled with one out after Leury Garcia’s two-run double.

Reliever Raisel Iglesias allowed an RBI double by Josh Harrison and singles to Tim Anderson and Luis Robert as Chicago closed to 6-4. Iglesias walked Yasmani Grandal to load the bases with two outs and hit Abreu with a pitch to force in a run.

Tepera took over and earned his first save.

****ST. LOUIS (AP) St. Louis catcher Andrew Knizner had to take a peak at the scoreboard.

He couldn’t believe his eyes after a catching a 103.1 mile-per hour fastball from reliever Ryan Helsley in the eighth inning of the Cardinals’ 7-5 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Sunday.

“Any time you can run up 103, that lights up the entire crowd,” Knizner said.

Harrison Bader and Nolan Arenado homered in the seventh inning to help the Cardinals rally from a 5-3 deficit

St. Louis won for the third time in five games and salvaged a split of the four-game series.

Jordan Luplow hit two homers for Arizona, and Nick Ahmed and Christian Walker also went deep.

Helsley retired all six batters he faced to pick up his first save of the season. He overpowered Ahmed, Cooper Hummel and Daulton Varsho in striking out the side in the final frame. Helsley has 16 strikeouts without a walk in seven appearances this season covering 8 1/3 innings.

St. Louis first-year manager Oliver Marmol called Helsley’s performance, “absolutely electric.”

Knizner couldn’t help but take a quick look at the radar gun reading after Helsley struck out Ketel Marte for the second out in the eighth.

“I didn’t have that much time, that thing came in quick,” Knizner said. “I knew it had a little zip to it. I kind of wanted it down and away, but (he) ripped it up and in. Anything at 103 kind of works.”

It was the fastest pitch in the majors this season. Helsley said his previous fastest pitch was 101.8.

“It’s a big jump,” Helsley said. “I hadn’t thrown in a couple days. I was feeling pretty good.”

Brendan Donovan had a run-scoring grounder, and Bader slammed a two-run shot off reliever Keynan Middleton ((0-1) to put the Cardinals up 6-5.

“You just try and stay cool in that situation,” Bader said. “This was a big win, one that we needed.”

One batter later, Arenado slammed his team-high sixth of the season. He had served a one-game suspension on Saturday for his part in an altercation against the New York Mets on Wednesday.6

Kodi Whitley (2-0) got the last out in the top of the seventh to pick up the win.

****OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) Triston McKenzie threw 6 1/3 scoreless innings and the Cleveland Guardians beat the Athletics 7-3 on Sunday to complete their first sweep in Oakland in 22 years.

Franmil Reyes, mired in a 1-for-27 slump entering the day, had a two-run single in the third when Cleveland scored four times to take control at 5-0. Andres Gimenez had two hits and an RBI, finishing 6 for 12 with six RBIs in the three-game series.

McKenzie (1-2) held the A’s to three hits, struck out seven and walked one as Cleveland swept a series at the Oakland Coliseum for the first time since April 10-12, 2000.

The A’s, who have lost six of their past eight, didn’t advance a runner as far as third base until the seventh inning.

A three-run rally in the ninth helped Oakland avoid a shutout, as Christian Bethancourt and Kevin Smith delivered RBI doubles and Chad Pinder hit a sacrifice fly.

James Kaprielian (0-1), making his season debut for Oakland after being sidelined by a shoulder injury, walked four and didn’t make it out of the third. He was pulled after walking the first three batters that inning, and Reyes greeted reliever Jake Lemoine with a two-run single to right-center that made it a 3-0 game.

Reyes, who got a day off Saturday to clear his head amid his slump, had struck out in 14 of his previous 18 plate appearances before his run-scoring hit. He finished 1 for 5 with three strikeouts Sunday.

****KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Luis Severino had a good vantage point to watch Aaron Judge send a pitch 453 feet to straightaway center field in the first inning Sunday, and the Yankees starter marveled at the nearly 400-foot homer that the slugger added in the ninth.

It was the 30-foot oopsie RBI that Judge hit in between that helped get Severino off the hook for a loss.

Along with running his homer streak to three straight games, Judge drove in the tying run in the seventh on a checked swing that trundled slowly down the first-base line, helping New York rally for a 6-4 victory over the Kansas City Royals that pushed the club’s winning streak to nine games.

“What can I say?” Severino asked. “The guy’s a monster.”

Not on that groundout, though. It traveled all of 30 feet. But certainly on the two homers, which combined to travel nearly the length of three football fields. They gave Judge five in his last five games and eight on the season.

“I mean, the way he cleaned that first one out, man – it’s hard to hit one more pure,” Yankees manager Aaron Boone said.

Josh Donaldson drove in the go-ahead run in the seventh on a fielder’s choice. Clarke Schmidt (2-2) pitched a scoreless inning in relief to earn the win, then was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre afterward. Aroldis Chapman left the tying run on base in the ninth to earn his sixth save on the year and 20th in a row.

“Everyone came in and contributed,” Boone said. “We didn’t break it open but everyone had a hand in there.”

The Yankees, riding the longest winning streak in the majors, improved to 16-6. It’s only the fourth time since 1959 that the 27-time World Series champions have won at least 16 of their first 22 games.

Michael Taylor homered for Kansas City, which has lost eight of its last 10.

****NFL****

***LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) The Chicago Bears released veteran quarterback Nick Foles on Sunday, two years after acquiring the former Super Bowl MVP to compete with Mitchell Trubisky for the starting job.

New general manager Ryan Poles had told reporters he hoped to trade Foles after signing Trevor Siemian to back up Justin Fields. He had one year left on his contract.

The Bears acquired Foles – the Super Bowl 52 MVP for Philadelphia – from Jacksonville in March 2020. Trubisky started the first two games that year.

Foles replaced him during a comeback win at Atlanta, then went 2-5 starting the next seven games. Trubisky went back into the starting lineup with Foles nursing a hip and glute injury.

Foles was third string last year behind Fields and Andy Dalton. He started one game with the other two quarterbacks injured, and threw for 250 yards in a win at Seattle in late December.

****NHL****

***PITTSBURGH (AP) The Pittsburgh Penguins will begin their first-round playoff matchup with the New York Rangers without Tristan Jarry, though they haven’t ruled out the All-Star’s return before the end of the series.

Head coach Mike Sullivan characterized Jarry as “day to day” but indicated Jarry would not be available when the best-of-seven series opens in New York on Tuesday. Jarry hasn’t played since being diagnosed with a lower-body injury following a victory over the New York Islanders on April 14.

Casey DeSmith will get the nod when the Penguins head to Madison Square Garden. DeSmith made just one appearance against the Rangers this season and played just 4:19 against New York on March 25 before leaving following a collision with a teammate. DeSmith is 3-2-1 with a 3.45 goals against average and a pedestrian .886 save percentage in seven career appearances against New York.

The 30-year-old DeSmith has played well in the run-up to the playoffs even as the Penguins limped toward the postseason. DeSmith went 8-3-3 with a 2.44 goals against and a .927 save percentage after the All-Star break.

Forward Jason Zucker is likely also out for the beginning of the series with an undisclosed injury sustained in a loss to Edmonton last Tuesday. Injuries have dogged Zucker this season, limiting him to just 41 games.

****INDYCAR****

LEEDS, Ala. (AP) All it took was a change of mindset for Pato O’Ward to turn around his season.

Now he’s on the verge of signing a new contract and a win Sunday at Barber Motorsports Park moved him back into the championship picture.

“It’s all smiles and unicorns, man,” O’Ward said Sunday after his first victory of the season.

O’Ward entered the season vocally unhappy about his current contract with Arrow McLaren SP, which has the popular Mexican signed through 2024 to team-friendly terms. O’Ward wanted more money, more assurances for his Formula One aspirations and a new contract.

But when his unhappiness began to hurt his on-track performance, O’Ward made a conscious decision to compartmentalize his complaints and focus on his job. The effort led to Sunday’s win, his first of the year and third of his career.

O’Ward used a strong outside pass of pole-sitter Rinus VeeKay after both pitted for fresh tires to take the lead then drive away for the victory. The win broke a Team Penske stranglehold on this year’s IndyCar results.

“Man, it sucks to be at war within your own team, right? So I’m glad there’s been more positive talks for the future,” said O’Ward, who has agreed with McLaren on principle on an extension.

“I was tired of being 10th and 11th and fifth and I said `Let’s get a win under our belts so we can climb back into this championship race.'”

The victory rocketed O’Ward from ninth to fifth in the standings.

Penske drivers Scott McLaughlin and Josef Newgarden swept the first three races of the season, all while O’Ward was pouting over his contract. But on the eve of the Long Beach Grand Prix two weeks ago, the 22-year-old decided he didn’t want to throw his season away over hurt feelings.

He dug deep for a fifth-place finish at Long Beach, huddled with McLaren head Zak Brown on the terms of an extension, then showed up in Barber ready to win some races. His shot came after a pit stop with 28 laps remaining when VeeKay and O’Ward pitted at the same time.

VeeKay came out ahead but O’Ward hunted him through the first four turns then used a brave move – and his push-to-pass – around the Dutchman to seize control of the race.

The win made Chevrolet 4 for 4 as IndyCar heads next to Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

“The driver in our team… is the quarterback, right? As the quarterback goes, the rest of the team goes. As the driver goes, the rest of the team goes,” said McLaren team president Taylor Kiel. “He has such an infectious spirit, such an energy, that it’s impactful to what we do in a very good way.

“I think we’ve got a driver that can compete and win at any circuit type. We put a good car together. If we come prepared, roll off the truck in a good window, it’s hard to beat.”

Alex Palou, the reigning IndyCar champion and defending race winner at Barber, finished second for Chip Ganassi Racing and reclaimed the points lead. His attention then turned to three weeks of racing in Indianapolis, where Palou was runner-up in last year’s Indianapolis 500.

VeeKay, who led a race-high 57 of the 90 laps, faded to third for Ed Carpenter Racing.

“I was so much looking in my mirrors that I forgot to use my push-to-pass,” VeeKay said of not using a burst of extra horsepower to hold off O’Ward.

Will Power rallied from 19th to finish fourth, the best of the Penske drivers, while six-time IndyCar champion Scott Dixon was fifth for Ganassi.

There were late-race fireworks between fellow Honda drivers Graham Rahal and Romain Grosjean as the two raced for position, and an irate Rahal screamed over his radio “that guys a punk! He hit me on purpose.”

An animated Rahal was seen after smacking his arm into Grosjean teammate Alexander Rossi to demonstrate Grosjean hitting Rahal’s car.

“We touched a couple of times, but it was good racing,” said Grosjean, who denied hitting Rahal on purpose. “No. No. No. It’s IndyCar, wheel-to-wheel action.”

Rahal didn’t believe him.

“Look at that, look at how much room he has!” Rahal said watching the replay. “I’m just frustrated because this isn’t the first time. In St. Pete, he hit everybody.”

Rahal then wondered if IndyCar officials are watching Grosjean – and even if they are, will they do anything about excessive aggression?

“As another driver in the series told me, `You can’t teach an old dog new tricks,’ and he’s had this reputation his whole career in Europe and we’re learning his reputation quickly here,” Rahal said. “If race control doesn’t want to do anything, then they aren’t going to do anything. But when we go and punt him, they better not do anything to me. In the past, I’ve been penalized for a lot less than that.”

UP NEXT

IndyCar is off next weekend and most of the drivers are headed to Miami for Formula One’s debut race on Sunday. The series returns to action May 14 on the road course at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. VeeKay is the defending race winner.

****INDIANAPOLIS INDIANS****

DES MOINES, Iowa – Ji-Hwan Bae sent a leadoff home run over the right-center wall on the third pitch of the game and the Indianapolis Indians never trailed in a series-clinching victory against the Iowa Cubs on Sunday afternoon, 3-1.

With a 1-1 count against Adrian Sampson (L, 0-3), Bae launched his third home run of the series to give the Indians (13-10) a 1-0 lead. It was the team’s first leadoff home run since Oneil Cruz hit one on Sept. 26, 2021 at Omaha.

The Indianapolis offense continued to roll in the second inning when a throwing error by shortstop Ildemaro Vargas on a ball put into play by Josh Bissonette allowed Bligh Madris to score from third base. Errors continued to plague the I-Cubs (11-12), and with the score 2-1 in the fourth inning, Canaan Smith-Njigba scored from first base on a Madris double and fielding error by left fielder Brennan Davis.

Cam Vieaux (W, 2-0) entered in relief of starter Osvaldo Bido in the fourth inning and surrendered one hit with four strikeouts in 3.1 innings. Bido, Vieaux, Hunter Stratton and Yerry De Los Santos (S, 2) combined for 13 strikeouts and just three hits allowed.

The Indians return to Victory Field on Tuesday night at 6:35 PM ET to begin a six-game series against the Louisville Bats. Neither team has announced a starting pitcher for Tuesday’s contest.

****INDIANA BASEBALL****

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – The adage goes: momentum is the next days starting pitcher, however, on Sunday (May 1) momentum came in the form of reliever Reese Sharp and an eight-run fifth inning to propel the Indiana baseball program to an 11-7 victory over Illinois to earn the series victory at Bart Kaufman Field.

Illinois (23-18, 12-6 B1G) struck first with two runs in the first inning, before Indiana (20-24, 6-9 B1G) plated three in the bottom of the inning. The Fighting Illini grabbed the momentum back with a five-run third, before the Hoosiers’ eight-run fifth capped the scoring.

The eight-run inning was the highest scoring inning since a nine-run fifth inning for IU against Minnesota on April 15, 2017.

Freshman Carter Mathison continued to flash his power at the plate with his first career multi-home run game. Hit two home runs push his total to 13 on the year, the most among Big Ten freshmen and tied for No. 2 among rookies in the NCAA. He was 2-for-4 on the afternoon with two runs scored and five RBIs.

After his two-home run game, the left-handed hitter is now within one of Alex Dickerson’s freshman home run record (14; 2009). His first inning home run moved his hitting streak to five games and his reached base streak to 11 games.

Freshman Evan Goforth went 2-for-4 with one run scored and collected a pair of hits in the eight-run fifth inning. It is the first time since 2004 that a Hoosier collected multiple hits in an inning. Prior to Goforth’s two singles versus the Illini, the last IU hitter to post multiple hits in an inning was Reggie Watson in the third inning versus Iowa on April 19, 2004.

Sharp (2-6) picked up the win as the second reliever out of the bullpen, as the redshirt-sophomore threw 4 1/3 innings of scoreless relief and allowed just four hits. He struck out six and did not walk a batter to earn his second win of the weekend. Senior Braydon Tucker got the start and allowed six runs on five hits but did not factor into the decision.

Jacob Campbell hit a home run for the third straight day for Illinois and produced three RBIs. Kellen Sarver drove in two RBIs and four Fighting Illini hitters produced multi-hit games. Jack Wenninger took the loss with four runs allowed on three hits in one-third of an inning of relief.

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – After giving up two runs in the top of the 11th inning the Indiana softball team showed resiliency as Brittany Ford’s three run double propelled the Hoosiers to a walk off 3-2 win over Illinois on Sunday at Andy Mohr Field.

Key Moments

Heather Johnson struck out her second batter in the fifth inning, followed by a diving catch by Aaliyah Andrews to capture the third out.

Illinois was able to get the first two runners on base to open extra innings with no outs. The next three batters included a force out, fly out, and a ground out to escape the scoring threat for the Hoosiers.

Following a grab from Cora Bassett, Brianna Copeland was able to tag out the runner at first, retiring the top of the ninth inning and leaving a runner stranded once again.

Illinois opened the eleventh inning with a leadoff double. With no outs, the Illini scored on a RBI single from Kailee Powell to give Illinois the first score of the game. Another single allowed Illinois to jump to a 2-0 lead. Natalie Foor replaced Johnson to not allow a hit with the next two batters, which included a strikeout to escape the inning.

Lindsey Warick led off the bottom of the 11th inning with a single. A deep single into right field by Brooke Benson loaded the bases with no outs. Brittany Ford walked off the game with a hit into deep center driving in three runs to cap off a 3-2 victory.

****PURDUE BASEBALL****

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – Punctuated by its second six-run frame of the weekend, Purdue baseball scored in five consecutive innings to roll past Michigan 12-4 in game 1 of a doubleheader split Sunday at Alexander Field.

The Boilermakers (25-14, 6-7) won the series to remain among the top eight in the Big Ten Tournament chase before the Wolverines’ lineup woke up to avoid the sweep, taking game 2 Sunday 13-2. It marked the first time a Purdue-Michigan series did not end in a sweep since April 2014 (in West Lafayette).

Wyatt Wendell gave the Boilermakers an elite outing on the mound, striking out eight over six innings of two-run ball in his best outing since March 20, another Sunday doubleheader Sunday at Alexander. He limited U-M (23-18, 9-6 B1G) to five hits and did not issue a walk. Wendell (4-2) struck out five of the first 10 batters he faced.

Troy Viola reached base safely five times in game 1, posting his second four-hit game of the season. Paul Toetz connected for a pair of RBI doubles, registering his second two-double game of the year. Mike Bolton Jr.’s leadoff triple – his Big Ten-leading fifth of the campaign – plated a pair and capped the scoring in Purdue’s six-run sixth inning.

CJ Valdez connected for his first home run at Alexander and third of the season overall.

Curtis Washington Jr.’s two-out, two-run single opened the scoring in the second inning. It was the second of his three hits to go along with a walk and a run scored.

Cam Thompson (38 consecutive games), Valdez (34), Washington (26) and Viola (19) all extended their on-base streaks in game 1, but Valdez and Viola saw theirs come to an end in the nightcap. Evan Albrecht was also held hitless in a Big Ten game for the first time this season, snapping his streak at 12. Michigan starter Chase Allen limited Purdue to four hits and seven base runners through eight innings of two-run ball.

Thompson (39) and Washington (27) extended their on-base streaks in their final at-bats of the nightcap. Washington connected for a triple to center field in the eighth inning and Thompson led off the ninth with a single.

Griffin Lohman worked 3 1/3 innings of two-hit relief in the nightcap, his longest outing as a Boilermaker. But it was already 11-1 in favor of Michigan when Lohman took the mound with two outs in the fifth inning.

The Wolverines scored six times in the second inning and tacked on five more in the top of the fifth. Nine of those 11 runs scored with two outs. In the second inning, Michigan rallied after Troy Wansing got hit in the rear end by a sharp comebacker. Wansing remained in the game and posted a pair of zeros before departing in the fifth.

Purdue is idle from midweek action this week as the players take final exams on campus. Up next is a three-game series at Iowa as part of the team’s first trip to Iowa City since March 2017. Friday’s series opener is set for 7 p.m. ET.

****PURDUE SOFTBALL****

WEST LAFAYETTE, IND. – The bats were hot on Senior Day, leading Purdue softball (22-29, 5-15 Big Ten) to an 8-2 victory over Rutgers (25-28, 3-17 Big Ten). In the final home game of the year, the Boilers recorded the most runs in a Big Ten game this season and most overall since March 13 vs. Bucknell.

With the result, Purdue took the series, 2-1 over Rutgers.

In the most decisive Big Ten victory of the season, Purdue recorded a trio of home runs, including two from its seniors, despite being out-hit 7-10 in the game. Additionally, Alex Echazarreta and Kiara Dillon each registered a double.

Senior shortstop Rachel Becker set the tone, leading off the Boilermakers with a home run in the team’s first appearance at the plate. Meanwhile, Jade Moy followed it up with a homer of her own just minutes later. Senior Kaeley Hallada cracked one of her own in the fifth inning for 2 RBI

Senior captains Becker and Hallada led the team with two runs apiece. Becker also recorded a hair of hits and a walk to go 3-for-3 from the plate. Meanwhile, Echazarreta led the team with three RBI, thanks to a double with the bases loaded in the second inning. 

The game-winning run came on Dillon’s double in the second inning, which allowed freshman Olivia McFadden to score.

In the circle, senior righty Brenna Smith secured the victory, her fifth of the season, following 5.1 innings, where she allowed just one run after facing 25 batters.

The Boilermakers front-loaded the game, scoring six runs in the first two innings, and held the Scarlet Knights scoreless until the top of the fifth.

Purdue has one weekend remaining in the regular season and are slated to make the trip to Iowa City to take on the Hawkeyes for the final three games of the year. The series will begin Friday at 5 p.m. ET and will be streamed on B1G+.

****BUTLER SOFTBALL****

INDIANAPOLIS – Ella White stepped to the plate – two runs down, with two runners on – and launched the Butler softball team into postseason play with a three-run, walk-off homerun on Sunday. The shot, over the left-center fence, produced a 5-4 win over Providence in the final game of a three-game BIG EAST series. The Friars (24-19, 10-11 BIG EAST) held a three-run lead, 4-1, after five innings, but the Bulldogs (29-15, 14-6 BIG EAST) used a four-run seventh to take the series, 2-1, and eliminate Providence from the upcoming conference tournament.

How It Happened

After three scoreless innings, Providence took a 2-0 lead in the top of the fourth, forcing a pitching change from Alyssa Graves to Karli Ricketts with two outs.

In the bottom of the fourth, Butler got one run back when Teagan O’Rilley (2-3) hit a single to left center that allowed Mackenzie Griman (2-3) to score.

In the fifth, the Friars hit a two-run single, increasing their lead to 4-1. With two outs, Graves re-entered the circle for Ricketts and retired the side.

In the bottom of the seventh, Kaylee Gross, Bri Avery, and Lauren Fey each reached on a single, loading the bases. Ellie Boyer hit a fly ball to right field that allowed Gross to score, closing the gap to 4-2. After Fey stole second, Ella White (2-4, 3 RBI, R) hit a three-run home run over the wall in left center to win the game, 5-4.

Butler Pitching

Alyssa Graves (13-3) started for Butler and earned the win. She threw a total of 6.0 innings, allowing 2 hits, 2 runs (both earned), and four walks while striking out four. She was replaced by Karli Ricketts (1.0 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 2 ER, BB, 3 K) in the middle of the fourth, but then re-entered in the middle of the fifth.

Bulldog Bits

Ella White’s home run was her fifth of the season.

Lauren Fey’s stolen base was her 18th of the season and the 51st of her career.

Emily Perrelle’s stolen base was her first of the season and the second of her career.

The win today was the 40th for Alyssa Graves in her career. She has now moved into sole possession of the fourth position on Butler’s all-time list for career wins.

With today’s win, Butler has clinched a spot in the four-team BIG EAST Tournament, along with UConn, Villanova, and DePaul. The Bulldogs could be seeded anywhere from 2nd to 4th, depending on the outcome of next weekend’s games.

This is the second consecutive season that Butler has qualified for the BIG EAST Tournament and the fourth time since 2016.

Today’s win is the 14th conference victory for the Bulldogs and matches the all-time record for conference wins in a season set in 2011 when the Butler was a member of the Horizon League.

Up Next

Butler travels to Morehead, Kentucky, on Wednesday, May 4, for a non-conference doubleheader with Morehead State. (These games were originally scheduled to be played on March 8.) The first pitch of game one is scheduled for 1 pm.

****BUTLER BASEBALL****

INDIANAPOLIS – UConn scored nine runs in the seventh inning to pull away from the Bulldogs and collect their 37th win of the 2022 season. The game was tight after the sixth inning with the Huskies leading the Bulldogs 5-3, but a grand slam would shake up the scoreboard and give the visiting team a 17-4 victory.

UConn scored 17 runs off 12 hits and got a grand slam from Casey Dana. Kevin Ferrer also hit a ball off the scoreboard on Sunday. He went 2-for-6 from the plate with a homer and three RBI.

****INDIANA STATE BASEBALL****

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. – Luke Patzner allowed just two runners past first base after the third inning in a masterful complete game performance as Indiana State topped Missouri State in the series finale on Sunday afternoon at Bob Warn Field, 8-1.

After surrendering a leadoff solo home run to Missouri State’s (21-19, 5-7 MVC) Walker Jenkins in the top of the third, Patzner (3-1) retired the next 10 batters to shut down any potential Bears rally in the contest. The redshirt sophomore pitched his way around a bases-loaded situation in the sixth and picked up a double play in the seventh in flustering the MSU offense to just three hits in the conference win.

Patzner went a career-high 120 pitches in the Sycamores’ first complete game pitching performance since Zach Frey went the distances back on June 5, 2021, in the NCAA Regional 9-2 win over Presbyterian. The right-hander surrendered just three hits, one walk, and hit one batter while striking out six in his third win of the 2022 season. Patzner retired the final eight batters in order before Joe Kido snagged the line drive back up the middle to secure the Sycamores win.

The Sycamores offense exploded for five runs in the bottom of the third inning and added three runs in the bottom of the eighth highlighted by back-to-back doubles by Seth Gergely and Jordan Schaffer as Indiana State snapped the four-game skid with the win. Grant Magill led ISU’s offense with a 3-for-3 performance from the plate with a double and two RBI, while Gergely added two runs scored in the win.

Dan Merrill (1-3) took the loss for Missouri State in a staff day on the mound as the right-hander went 0.1 innings allowing three hits and five runs while walking two in the decisive third inning. Riyan Rodriguez went 3.1 innings in effective relief for the Bears while striking out three.

Jenkins’ solo home run was the lone offense provided by the Bears on the day, while Spencer Nivens and Dakota Kotowski both added singles in the loss.

How They Scored

Missouri State took the 1-0 lead in the top of the third inning as Walker Jenkins connected on a solo home run to right field on the first pitch of the frame to give the Bears the advantage.

Indiana State sent 10 batters to the plate in the bottom of the third inning with Sean Ross, Randall Diaz, and Parker Stinson all connecting on RBI singles in the inning. Grant Magill added a RBI sacrifice fly, while Seth Gergely scored on a wild pitch to give the Sycamores the 5-1 lead after three innings.

The Sycamores pushed across the final three runs of the contest in the bottom of the eighth as Grant Magill’s RBI single to center field was followed by Seth Gergely and Jordan Schaffer RBI doubles to provide the final 8-1 margin.

News & Notes

Luke Patzner became the first Indiana State pitcher to throw a complete game in the 2022 season and first Sycamore to go the distance since Zach Frey went all nine innings in the win over Presbyterian at the 2021 NCAA Regional in Nashville.

Patzner eclipsed his previous season-high of five innings achieved three times this season, last against Evansville last weekend.

Patzner’s six strikeouts was one off his season-high seven set back on March 15 against Southeast Missouri State.

Jordan Schaffer’s pair of hits marked his 14th multi-hit game of the season and 39th of his ISU career.

Grant Magill posted his fourth three-hit game of the season and 11th multi-hit game overall on the year. He now has 20 career multi-hit games at ISU following the weekend.

The Sycamores continued their doubles streak on Sunday with three different players hitting doubles in the win. The streak moves to 14 consecutive games with multiple doubles and 23 consecutive contests with at least one double.

A model of consistency over recent history, ISU’s win snapped the Sycamore’s first four-game losing streak since 2019.

The Sycamores finish the weekend sitting third in the Missouri Valley standings with a 7-5 record in conference play with weekend series at Bradley (May 6-8), at Southern Illinois (May 13-15), and home against Dallas Baptist (May 19-21) still on the schedule.

****EVANSVILLE SOFTBALL****

EVANSVILLE, Ind. – Six seniors who made a lasting impact on the University of Evansville softball team were honored on Sunday following the series finale against Southern Illinois.  The senior class included Elyse Hickey, Bella Coffey, Haley Woolf, Mackenzie McFeron, Izzy Vetter and Jessica Fehr.  On the field, Southern Illinois finished up Saturday’s halted game by a 6-0 score before winning the finale, 5-0.

Game Two – Southern Illinois 6, UE 0 (resumption of Saturday’s game)

Four hits in the top of the first saw SIU take the early 2-0 lead before they added a third run in the second.  In the third, Southern Illinois made it a 5-0 game as their ninth hit padded the lead.  Jenny Jansen led the fourth off with a home run off the scoreboard for the sixth run of the day.  SIU scored in each of the opening four frames.

As UE was set to bat in the bottom of the fifth, lightning halted play before rain started to fall.  The remainder of the game was played on Sunday morning.  UE picked up three hits in the remaining frames while Paige McAllister pitched two hitless innings in a strong effort.  Mackenzie McFeron and Alexa Davis recorded two hits apiece in the contest.

Game Three – Southern Illinois 5, UE 0

It was a pitcher’s duel over the first three innings before the Salukis opened the scoring with a run in the fourth on a sacrifice fly by Elisabeth Huckleberry.  SIU added another run in the fifth on an RBI single from Emma Austin.  Haley Woolf prevented the Salukis from tacking on more as a perfect strike threw out a base stealer.

Huckleberry struck again with a solo home run in the sixth before another run made it 4-0.  Evansville put up one of its top threats of the day in the bottom of the inning.  McFeron led off with a single before Marah Wood doubled to left with one out, but a pair of strikeouts ended the threat.  One more run was added by the Salukis in the top of the seventh and they would take the 5-0 victory.  UE had six hits on the way with Haley Woolf recording two.  Sydney Weatherford took the loss, allowing two runs in 4 1/3 frames.

Next week will mark the final series of the regular season.  UE travels to Valparaiso for a 3-game set, which opens on Friday at noon.

****VALPO BASEBALL****

The Valparaiso University baseball team enjoyed its second straight prosperous offensive day on Sunday afternoon at Itchy Jones Stadium in Carbondale, Ill., as another double-figure run output helped the visiting Beacons top Southern Illinois 11-10. The Salukis entered the day tied for first place in the Missouri Valley Conference. Valpo scored early and often, putting up multiple runs in four of the first five innings, including a four-run third.

How It Happened

  • Valpo took an immediate lead in the opening inning when Kyle Schmack blasted a two-run homer to left. Kaleb Hannahs (West Terre Haute, Ind. / West Vigo), who had reached on an error, was along for the ride on the long ball to help the guests to the early 2-0 lead.
  • Another big swing allowed Valpo to double the lead in the second. Alex Ryan (Lake Mills, Wis. / Lakeside Lutheran) drilled a two-run shot to left with Jeremy Drudge (Plymouth, Ind. / Plymouth) along for the ride after leading off the inning with a single. That extended the edge to 4-0.
  • The third inning started modestly for the Beacons as the first two batters of the inning – the No. 2 and No. 3 hitters in the lineup – were retired. However, a two-out rally eventually led to four runs to double the lead to eight. Brady Renfro (Antigo, Wis. / Antigo) and Nolan Tucker (Cedar Lake, Ind. / Hanover Central) ripped back-to-back two-out doubles to chase SIU starting pitcher Ben Chapman from the game. After a walk to Drudge, Ryan Maka (Oak Forest, Ill. / Oak Forest) and Jake Kapers (Schererville, Ind. / Mount Carmel) each added RBI singles, and another run crossed the plate on an SIU error to make it 8-0.
  • The Salukis got three back in the bottom of the third thanks to three singles and two walks. That cut the Valpo lead to five.
  • Valpo expanded the gap back to seven in the fifth by once again doing damage with two down. Ryan went the other way and poked a run-scoring single through the right side before Alex Thurston (Fowler, Ind. / Benton Central) followed suit with a base knock of his own to make it 10-3.
  • SIU scored one in the bottom of the fifth and three in the seventh, but Nolan Lebamoff (Fort Wayne, Ind. / Carroll [Kankakee]) came in from the bullpen and extinguished the fire with a looking strikeout to strand a runner at third. The three runs in the frame made it a 10-7 game.
  • Closer Bobby Nowak (Cedar Lake, Ind. / Hanover Central [Kankakee]) began the eighth inning in an effort to nail down a six-out save. He put up a zero in the bottom of the eighth before Valpo added an important insurance run (but stranded three) in the top of the ninth with the run crossing the dish on a bases-loaded walk to Maka.
  • SIU scored three times in the bottom of the ninth and had the potential tying run in scoring position and potential winning run on base, but Nowak notched a looking strikeout for the final out as the Beacons held on for the win.

Inside the Game

  • Schmack’s home run was his sixth of the season and the eighth of his collegiate career.
  • Ryan’s home run was the first of his collegiate career. He became the second Beacon to hit his first collegiate long ball this weekend after Jake Kapers did so on Saturday.
  • Ryan’s three RBIs marked a career high. In fact, this was the first multiple-RBI game of the sophomore’s collegiate career.
  • Renfro, Tucker and Ryan had two hits apiece, while Schmack recorded three hits, his fifth three-hit game of the year and his team-leading 16th multi-hit game. Eight of the nine batters in the lineup had at least one hit.
  • Eight of Valpo’s 11 runs came with two outs.
  • Saturday and Sunday at SIU marked the first time this season that Valpo produced a double-figure run total in consecutive games. In fact, those two games represented the team’s two highest run totals of the year. Valpo also had a double-figure hit total in all three games of a series for the second time this year (at UIC).
  • After posting crooked numbers in three of the first four innings on Saturday, Valpo put up crooked numbers in four of the first five frames on Sunday.
  • Valpo improved to 3-3 in one-run games and 6-7 in games decided by two runs or fewer.
  • Starting pitcher Griffin McCluskey (Normal, Ill. / Normal Community) picked up his second win after allowing four runs on six hits while walking two and striking out one in five innings.
  • Nowak nailed down his eighth save of the season, the most saves by a Valpo player in a single season since Karch Kowalczyk had 11 in 2014. He needs one more save to climb into the Top 5 in single-season program history. By virtue of his eighth save, Nowak is now tied for ninth in program history in career saves in his first season with the Brown & Gold.

Up Next

Valpo (14-25, 3-9 MVC) will host Western Michigan in a nonconference game on Tuesday at 2 p.m. at Emory G. Bauer Field. Note that the start time has been moved to an hour earlier than originally scheduled. There will be no ESPN3/+ broadcast of this contest, but WVUR is scheduled to make an appearance to handle the radio call. Links to live audio and stats will be available on ValpoAthletics.com.

****U OF I WOMEN’S LAX****

INDIANAPOLIS—The second-ranked UIndy women’s lacrosse team captured the 2022 Great Lakes Valley Conference crown Sunday at Key Stadium.

HOW IT HAPPENED

Despite facing the nation’s second-highest scoring offense, the Greyhound defense played one of its best games of the season. The Lions came in averaging more than 18 goals for game but Sunday came away with just five, matching the lowest total in the program’s 11-year Division II history.

The Hounds’ two-headed brick wall in the net – Audrey Moran in the first half, Cassidy King in the second – combined to save 12 of Lindenwood’s 17 shots on goal. Mekayla Montgomery paced the defense with four ground balls, while adding two draw controls and a forced turnover.

The second quarter belonged to the Lions as they outscored UIndy 6-1 in the frame including three goals in a 49 second span.  Billig connected with Whiteford with just over two minutes remaining before the Lions found the net in the final minute to take a 7-4 lead to the break.

Both defenses shined to open the second half as neither team scored for the first seven minutes.  The Lions ended the drought with a goal of their own before Jake Zickel and Owain Braddock scored just over a minute apart, putting the Hounds down two with just over 20 minutes remaining.

Back-to-back goals from the Lions put them ahead by four with 13:42 remaining.  Momentum wasn’t in UIndy’s favor as Auyer connected with Johnson to cut the deficit to three, but the Lions responded right away with a goal of their own.

The Hounds didn’t back down as Johnson and Billig each scored in the final two minutes but the comeback bid fell short, snapping UIndy’s 29 game win streak at Key Stadium.

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. — The Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology baseball team swept Bluffton University in a Sunday doubleheader matinee. Rose-Hulman clinched a bid to the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference on May 12-14 in Kokomo, Indiana, with the 3-0 and 10-7 doubleheader sweep.

In the opener, Ian Kline tossed a three-hit complete game shutout to lead the Rose-Hulman to a 3-0 win.

Kline (6-2) finished with 95 pitches in nine innings of work for Rose-Hulman, giving up three hits, walking none and striking out three.

Josh Mesenbrink led the way offensively for the Engineers, going 2-for-3 with a double, a home run and two RBI. Brett Tuttle added a 2-for-4 day with a home run and an RBI. Harrison Finch also chipped in, going 2-for-4 for Rose-Hulman with a double.

In the nightcap, Josh Erpenbeck (3-1) struck out eight hitters over 5.1 innings of work to pick up the win in a 10-7 victory.  Erpenbeck allowed just one run on four hits with no walks in the performance.

Tuttle led the way with a 2-for-4 performance that included a home run, triple and three RBIs.  Colter Couillard-Rodak was also 3-for-5 with a double, a home run and two RBIs.

Manuel Lopez pitched in with a 2-for-5 effort with a double and two RBIs.  Finch also had a multi-hit game at 2-for-3 effort at the dish with one RBI.

The Fightin’ Engineers improved to 22-10 overall and 11-5 in the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference and return to action on Thursday at DePauw University.  Bluffton dropped to 16-21 overall and 8-8 in HCAC play.      

****WABASH MEN’S GOLF****

Wabash College sophomore Brayden Wiess earned First Team All-North Coast Athletic Conference honors with a fourth-place finish at the 2022 NCAC Men’s Golf Championship, completed Sunday afternoon at the Westfield Country Club in Mansfield, Ohio. Wabash finished in fifth place out of nine teams competing at the event.

Weiss shot a round of 79 on Sunday after posting rounds of 74 and 73 on Friday and Saturday to finish with a three-day score of 10-over-par 226. His top-five finish is the first by a Wabash golfer since Logan Burdick finished in third place at the 2014 NCAC Men’s Championships held at the Crawfordsville Country Club. Weiss joins Burdick and two-time First Team All-NCAC honoree Jordan Vice (2007, 2009) as the only Wabash golfers to earn First Team awards since the Little Giants joined the NCAC for the 1999-2000 season.

Weiss led the three-day tournament in par-three scoring with an overall average of 2.78 to finish minus-two for the tournament overall. He was the only player to finish the par threes under par. He also led the tournament in birdies with 11 total over three days. Weiss also tied for second overall in par-five scoring with an average of 4.89 strokes to finish one under for the par-five holes.

Hyatt Hines just missed a place on the All-NCAC Team. The freshman tied for 16th place with a three-round score of 236 and one stroke out of a tie for 15th place which would have placed him on the Honorable Mention All-NCAC Team. Hines shot a round of 77 on Sunday after opening with an 82 Friday followed by a 77 on Saturday.

Lewis Dellinger tied for 22nd overall. He finished with a three-day score of 240 (78-79-83) after carding an 83 on Sunday. Mark Poole shot a score of 83 on Sunday and tied for 28th-place out of 45 entries in the tournament. He finished with an overall score of 246 (80-83-83). Miles Patterson placed 35th overall with a final round of 90 and an overall score of 257 (86-81-90).

Nick Lust from Kenyon College won the Bob Nye Award as the tournament medalist with a three-round score of two-under-par 214.

Wabash turned in a final score of 322 on Sunday for a three-round total score of 946. The Little Giants finished 15 strokes behind fourth-place Allegheny College with a total score of 931. Kenyon College ran away with the team title by carding a three-round total of 897. Denison jumped two places on Sunday to finish second in the team scoring with a three-round effort of 921. Wittenberg, the pre-championship favorite to win the title, place third overall with a final score of 927. DePauw finished in sixth place (962) with Wooster (988), Ohio Wesleyan (1,002), and Hiram (1,120) completing the team scoring.

****WABASH TRACK****

Wabash College senior Max Bigler earned All-North Coast Athletic Conference honors with a third-place finish on Sunday’s final day of the decathlon to open the 2022 NCAC Outdoor Track and Field Championships. Jake Oostman and Giovonni Zappala place fifth and sixth overall, respectively.

Bigler entered the final day of competition in fourth place. He scored a total of 2,443 points in the 110-meter hurdles, discus throw, pole vault, javelin throw, and 1500-meter run to tally a ten-event total score of 5,611 points. Ooostman scored a total of 5,486 points over the two days of competition to place fifth overall after scoring 2,245 points on Sunday. Zappala placed sixth overall with a total of 5,384 points. He scored 2,505 in Sunday’s five events.

Denison’s Jacob Brown won the decathlon with a total of 6,092 points. David Jansen from DePauw finished in second place with a score of 5,788.

The three top-six finishes for Wabash provided the Little Giants with a total of 13 team points heading into the remaining schedule of events at the 2022 NCAC Championships scheduled to take place this Friday and Saturday at Oberlin College. Denison scored a total of 10 points while DePauw picked up eight points. Allegheny (5 points), Wittenberg (2 points), and Wooster (1 point) complete the team scoring heading into Friday’s events.

****VINCENNES BASEBALL****

ALTON, Ill. – The Vincennes University Trailblazer baseball team opened their four-game Mid-West Athletic Conference series Sunday afternoon against the Lewis & Clark CC Trailblazers.

The series was pushed back a day after the rain in the forecast for Saturday and was moved to nearby Lloyd Hopkins Field in Alton, Ill.

Vincennes took game one of the series 17-7 before host Lewis & Clark battled back to take game two 11-4.

Lewis & Clark got the day started early with L&C plating three runs in the first.

Vincennes battled back to narrow the margin in the third with back to back RBI singles by freshman Ethan Burdette (Linton, Ind.) and sophomore Colin Long (Evansville, Ind.).

VU took the lead in the following inning with a two-RBI double by freshman Will Egger (Terre Haute, Ind.) as Vincennes held a 4-3 advantage.

The visiting Trailblazers extended their lead in the fifth on an RBI triple by sophomore Connor VanLannen (Clinton, Ind.), followed by a two-run home run by sophomore Dale Coy (Evansville, Ind.).

Lewis & Clark responded to even the game at seven-all in the bottom of the inning, before VU broke the tie in the sixth with a sacrifice fly by Long, an RBI double by sophomore Peyton Lane (New Paris, Ohio) and a three-run home run by freshman Colton Evans (Henderson, Ky.).

Vincennes built off of this momentum in the seventh as Lewis & Clark committed three errors in the inning and allowed VU to score five more runs to take what would be the winning margin of 17-7.

VanLannen got the series started on the mound for Vincennes and lasted five strong innings, allowing seven runs, only two earned on four hits and striking out five.

Sophomore Braedon Nichols (Sullivan, Ind.) took over on the mound and finished out the final two innings allowing only one hit and punching out one.

“Connor VanLannen was able to keep us in the game with five innings on the mound and obviously Nichols threw really well in the final two to close it out,” VU Head Baseball Coach Chris Barney said. “We put some big runs up in the fifth with a single and triple, then a home run by Dale Coy. Then we got another home run in the sixth by Evans.”

“A lot of guys contributed in game one,” Barney added. “Every guy one through nine contributed in those later innings. We got some more runs in the seventh off of some errors, so we were able to take advantage of their mistakes, especially later in the game as we had a lead and were able to add to it.”

VU kept their hot bats going to start game two of the day as Connor VanLannen came through with a three-run home run in the top of the first as Vincennes grabbed the early lead.

Lewis & Clark answered back in the bottom half of the inning, tying the game at 3-3.

Vincennes would take the lead back in the third after Peyton Lane hit a double and came around to score on an RBI single by freshman Jordan Roth (Delphi, Ind.).

L&C answered back with a pair of runs in the third, a big five-run inning in the fifth and an insurance run in the fifth as the host Trailblazers came away with the 11-4 game two win.

Sophomore Kestler Harbuck (Brooksville, Fla.) got the start in game two and threw into the fourth inning, allowing nine runs on seven hits and striking out three.

Freshman Eli Steimel (Sullivan, Ind.) took the ball first out of the bullpen and threw one and a third innings allowing two runs on four hits and striking out one.

Freshman Jake Stuteville (Rockport, Ind.) held serve on the mound, throwing an inning and two-thirds and holding Lewis & Clark hitless during his time on the mound.

“Game two was just a matter of working ahead of our starting pitcher,” Barney said. “I stuck with him, he was making some quality pitches, we just weren’t getting the calls. Then Lewis & Clark’s three hole batter matched his home run total for the year today with three. He did some damage against us and we just had to respond. We walked their nine hole batter twice. Five of their 11 runs were stoppable if we make pitches and make plays behind him.”

“11-4 score, obviously we are not happy with that, but we have to bounce back tomorrow and figure it out to at least come out of here one or two wins here tomorrow,” Barney added.

The two Trailblazer teams will get set for the final two games of the four-game set tomorrow, Monday, May 2, at Lloyd Hopkins Field. First pitch tomorrow is scheduled for 12 p.m. eastern.

“We’ve got to play some really good defense and we’ve got to get some quality pitching tomorrow,” Barney said. “We also have to continue to swing the bats well. We swung well in both games today, they just didn’t fall for us in the second game as well as we had hoped.”

“We need to continue to swing it, play better defense and get some quality pitching out of our starters and out of our bullpens tomorrow,” Barney added.

****VINCENNES TRACK****

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. – The Trailblazer Men’s and Women’s Track and Field teams are no strangers to windy conditions, having battled them all season long and put that experience to use Saturday afternoon at the Sycamore Open track meet at Indiana State University.

The VU Women’s team was led by another excellent throwing day from freshman Giorgia Fino (Italy) who took the top spot in the Javelin with a longest throw of 37.44 meters.

Sophomore Chloe Knepp (Montgomery, Ind.) also held her own against some tough competition to finish seventh in the 400 meters, with a time of 1:03.45.

Freshman Abyela Cruz (French Lick, Ind.) capped off the women’s team scorers with an eighth place finish in the discus throw, ending with a throw of 26.69 meters.

The VU Men’s team also picked up a race winner, with freshman Mathew Keitany (Kenya) taking the top spot in the 1500 meters with a time of 4:00.03.

The Trailblazer 4×100 meter relay team of freshmen Jalen Bowman (Evansville, Ind.), Collin Sutton (New Albany, Ind.) and Yamar Lyons (Kalamazoo, Mich.) and sophomore Kyle Stewart (Evansville, Ind.) came together to take second place with a time of 42.57 seconds.

Jalen Bowman also came away with a third-place finish in the 200 meters, ending at 21.47 seconds.

Kyle Stewart also placed third in the Long Jump ending with a jump distance of 6.99 meters.

Sophomore Damien Ross (East St. Louis, Ill.) placed eighth in the 400 meter hurdles, finishing with a time of 1:00.57.

Sophomore Manamanya Opiew (Indianapolis, Ind.) finished fourth in the 800 meters with a time of 1:57.27.

Freshman Nicholas Stanislaus (Grenada) and sophomore Jaylen Rush (Palos Heights, Ill.) both placed in the Javelin throw, with Stanislaus placing fourth at 42.75 meters and Rush taking seventh at 33.59 meters.

The VU scorers were rounded out by Stanislaus and sophomore Matthew Frazier (Franklin, Ind.) ending with a fifth place tie in the Pole Vault, with the two jumpers reaching 4.00 meters.

The VU women’s team placed 11th as a team at the meet and the men’s team took sixth place, finishing ahead of four NCAA Division I programs in Saint Louis, Evansville, Bradley and IUPUI.

“We had another windy affair, but as we have all season, the kids just competed,” VU Head Track and Field Coach Marty Rogier said. “That’s what they do.”

“Mathew ran a brilliant 1500 for the win and ran just a great race in those conditions,” Rogier added. “Giorgia, who was nursing a slight injury, also beat a good field of throwers and won throwing into a big wind. She has a big throw coming.”

“Our sprint crew got it rolling in the 200. Jalen ran a very fast 21.47, finishing third and I think he can bring that down. Collin and Yamar both ran good races at 22.32 and 22.84, which was a big PR for Yamar,” Rogier said. “Those three and Kyle teamed up to take second in the 4×100, which I believe we would have won easily, except for one bad exchange.”

Once again, our 800 group got after it. Manny ran his PR in 1:57.27 good for fifth, which was amazing considering he went to graduation in the morning and then drove himself to the meet just in time to compete,” Rogier added. “That effort earned him the Trailblazer Willie Award. Trenton and Ernest also ran very good races considering the conditions, running 1:59 and 2:02.”

“Kyle struggled to get on the board with the big wind but managed to get third with a respectable 6.99 meter in the long jump. Brittany Page (Bicknell, Ind.) continued her string of good races. She ran a big PR last week and came back this week with another great effort in the 800, running 2:29.16.”

“Kyra Young also came from graduation and basically got out of the car and got on the track for her 1600 race and still managed to run a solid race at 5:07. Mason Harmes had a big PR in the Hammer, throwing 41.86 meters and then also had a very good throw in the discus with a toss of 43.14 meters. He is just one good throw from qualifying for Nationals in the discus.”

“Nicholas had another good day, tuning up for his next decathlon at Nationals. He ran a big PR in the 110 hurdles, matched his best in the Pole Vault and had a good throw in the javelin. Former VU Head Coach Chris Gafner has been a big help with helping Nicholas with the hurdles. Big thank you to Coach Gafner.”

“I was really looking forward to the 4×400 relay but lightening delayed the meet and we did not get to run it.”

The Sycamore Open caps off the 2022 Outdoor regular season for the teams, but there will be a few individuals continuing to go to different meets in the area as VU tries to get more and more National Qualifiers.

The rest of the VU teams will begin preparations for the NJCAA Division I National Outdoor Championships that will run from Thursday, May 19 through Saturday, May 21 at Hutchinson Community College in Hutchinson, Ks.

“This was schedule to be our last regular meet but we are going to Indiana University this coming Friday to try to hit a couple more qualifying marks for Nationals,” Rogier said.

TODAY IN BASEBALL HISTORY

1876       At Cincinnati’s Avenue Grounds, Chicago’s Ross Barnes hits the first home run in the history of the National League. In addition to his inside-the-park homer, the former National Association superstar also hits a single and a triple, steals two bases, and scores four runs in the White Stocking’s 19-5 victory over the Reds.

1901       After the Tigers take the lead in the top of the ninth inning at Chicago’s South Side Park, the White Sox, hoping for rain to wash out the five runs, scored in the top of the ninth, slow down the pace of the game. Umpire Tom Connolly is not impressed and forfeits the game, the first in American League history, giving Detroit a 7-5 victory.

1901       The Chicago Orphans purchase future Hall of Fame hurler Rube Waddell from the Pirates for a stogie. The strange transaction for the 24-year-old eccentric and inconsistent southpaw resulted from Pittsburgh manager Fred Clarke’s telling team owner Barney Dreyfuss, “Sell him; release him, drop him off the Monongahela Bridge. Do anything you like, so long as you get him the hell off my ball team!”

1909       Pirates’ infielder Honus Wagner steals his way around the bases in the nightcap of a twin bill at Chicago’s West Side Grounds. The Flying Dutchman’s trio of thefts, three additional stolen bases, two walks, a batter hit by a pitch, two errors, and two hits all add up to a five-run first frame in the Bucs’ eventual 6-0 victory and a sweep the twin bill.

1912       At South End Grounds, the hometown Braves score ten runs in the first two innings and hold on to defeat the Superbas, 11-7. Brooklyn scores four runs in the bottom of the third to knock out Boston’s starter Buster Brown.

1917       At Weeghman Park, southpaw Hippo Vaughn of Chicago and Reds righty Fred Toney throw no-hitters against one another through the first nine innings. The deadlock is broken in the top of the tenth with a one-out single by Larry Kopf, an error, and an infield hit by Jim Thorpe, and Toney then sets the Cubs down to preserve his extra-inning gem.

1920       Dropping their 13th consecutive decision, the Tigers still do not have a victory this season when the team loses to Cleveland, 5-2. The club’s futile 0-13 start matches the major league mark set by the 1904 Washington Senators.

1920       The first game of the National Negro Baseball League is played in Indianapolis when the hometown ABCs beat the Chicago Giants at Washington Park, 4-2. Schorling’s Park, the home field of the Giants, will be unavailable for another month due to the occupation of the National Guard, stationed there as a result of the Chicago Race Riot of 1919, prompting the delay of the inaugural season in the Windy City, a big disappointment for the newly-formed league.

1923       Senator right-hander Walter Johnson tosses his 100th career shutout when he blanks the Yankees at Griffith Stadium, 3-0. During his 21-year career, the ‘Big Train’ will establish a major league record, whitewashing the opponents 110 times.

1928       With the bases loaded and two out in the ninth inning, Giants’ manager John McGraw orders that Dodger rookie Del Bissonette be intentionally walked with the bases loaded by Larry Benton, forcing home a run. The strategy works when Harry Riconda strikes out, giving New York a 2-1 victory in the Polo Grounds contest.

1930       In Des Moines, Iowa, a Western League contest against Wichita becomes the first night baseball game to be played under permanent lights. The unique event, which draws 12,000 fans instead of the usual 600 patrons, is the beginning of a concept that will spread quickly through the minors and spare many organizations from the onslaught of the Great Depression.

1930       Joe Sewell’s consecutive streak ends at 1,103 games when he doesn’t appear in a game against the Red Sox at Fenway Park due to having a fever of 102 degrees. The Indians shortstop, who hasn’t missed a game since 1922, is only 204 games shy of the major league record of 1,307 games set in 1925 by Yankee shortstop Everett Scott.

1939       Before a game with the Tigers in Detroit, Lou Gehrig tells his manager, Joe McCarthy, that he is benching himself “for the good of the team.” The Yankee legend’s record streak, which began in 1925, ends at 2,130 consecutive games.

1944       The Marine Corps commissions 25-year-old Red Sox outfielder Ted Williams, who received his pilot wings, as a second lieutenant. The future Hall of Famer, fighting in both WW II and the Korean War, will miss five years of playing time during the span of his major league career.

1946       Boston GM Eddie Collins announces the club will install lights at Fenway Park before the 1947 season. The Red Sox will be the 14th club out of 16 major league teams to play night games in their home park, leaving just Wrigley Field (Cubs) and Briggs Stadium (Tigers) in the dark.

1951       As a pinch-hitter, Lou Limmer goes deep off Tigers’ right-hander Saul Rogovin in the top of the ninth to tie the game at 3-3, in the A’s eventual 5-3 extra-inning loss at Briggs Stadium. The at-bat marks the first time in major league history that a Jewish batter faces a Jewish pitcher with a Jewish catcher (Joe Ginsberg) behind the plate.

1954       In a twin bill at Sportsman’s Park, eight-year-old Nate Colbert watches the Cardinals’ Stan Musial become the first major leaguer to hit five home runs in a doubleheader. In 1972, as a 26-year-old Padres first baseman, he will become the only other major leaguer to repeat this feat.

1956       During a game in which 48 players see action, Chicago’s third baseman Don Hoak strikes out a record six times against six different New York pitchers. The Giants outlast the Cubs in the 17-inning Wrigley Field marathon, 6-5.

1958       George Weiss warns the National League there will be consequences, interpreted by some as a nationwide Yankees network, if teams continue to flood the market with games, trying to fill the void created when the Dodgers and Giants left the Big Apple. The Phillies have already committed to broadcast 78 of its games in NYC, with the Cardinals and Pirates making plans to show their home games in the Big Apple when they play against the West Coast teams.

1964       At Memorial Stadium, the Orioles host “Safety Patrol Day” to honor students who helped their schoolmates travel to and from school safely by giving free admission to 20,000 children from around the state of Maryland to the team’s game against Cleveland. An escalator accident causes the death of a teenager and injuries to 46 other children when a people channeler restricts the flow of kids in the wrong direction, causing riders to fall back onto one another when they could not exit at the same pace as people getting onto the moving steps.

1964       At Municipal Stadium, the Twins become the third team in major league history to hit four consecutive home runs in an inning when Tony Oliva, Bob Allison, Jimmie Hall, and Harmon Killebrew all go deep the top of the 11th frame the team’s 7-3 victory over the A’s. The Kansas City will surrender 220 round-trippers, breaking the big league mark of 199 established by the team’s pitching staff last season.

1968       Mets hitter Bud Harrelson becomes the first batter in baseball history to gain a 3-0 ball-strike count advantage from the on-deck circle when umpire Ed Vargo penalizes Phillies reliever John Boozer for going to his mouth inside the 18-foot circle of the mound. Philadelphia manager Gene Mauch, incensed about the ball one call, orders his pitcher to do it again for ball two and then again for ball three, which promptly gets his right-hander and himself thrown out of the game, a 3-0 loss at Shea Stadium.

1972       Vida Blue, coming off a Cy Young Award season (24-8, 1.82), ends his holdout when he agrees to sign for $63,000 after being given a raise of only $14,750. The A’s 22-year-old southpaw will post a 6-10 record, failing to make Oakland’s postseason starting rotation.

1983       Jose Oquendo makes his major league debut, grounding into a force out as a pinch-hitter in the ninth inning of a 3-2 loss to Houston. The 19-year-old rookie shortstop, born on July 4, 1963, is the first person to play for the Mets younger than the franchise, which started in 1962.

1984       Don Mattingly’s seventh-inning single breaks up LaMarr Hoyt’s perfect game bid. The lone hit, an opposite-field blooper, is followed up by a double play, and the White Sox hurler faces the minimum 27 batters, defeating the Yankees, 3-0.

1988       One out away from immortality, Reds’ right-hander Ron Robinson gives up a single to pinch-hitter Wallace Johnson and a Tim Raines home run to end his bid for a perfect game. Cincinnati holds on to beat the visiting Expos at Riverfront Stadium, 3-2.

1988       Pete Rose, furious over Dave Pallone’s delayed call yesterday allowing the eventual winning run, becomes the first manager suspended for an on-field incident when National League president Bart Giamatti issues a 30-day suspension for his shoving of the first base ump. The ugly argument resulted in the fans throwing trash onto the field, temporarily delaying the game, and making it necessary for the arbitrator to be removed from the game to calm tempers.

1988       At Memorial Stadium, Baltimore owner Edward Bennett Williams, attending his last Oriole game due to his losing battle with cancer, and 50,402 fans welcome their 1-23 team back from a road trip. Governor William Donald Schaefer announces that the team and the Maryland Stadium Authority have agreed upon a long-term lease for a new downtown ballpark for the start of the 1992 season.

1993       Jeff Bronkey picks up a save in his big league debut, tossing three scoreless innings against the Brewers in the 9-7 Texas victory. The 27-year-old Rangers reliever becomes the first person born in Afghanistan (Kabul) to play in the major leagues.

1994       Changing their jersey color from white to blue to snap a losing skid doesn’t work when the Cubs lose their record eleventh consecutive game. Chicago is limited to two hits by John Smiley in the Reds’ rout at Wrigley Field, 9-0.

1995       Hideo Nomo becomes the first Japanese native to play in the majors since Masanori Murakami appeared with the Giants in 1964. The 26-year-old right-hander from Osaka pitches five scoreless innings of one-hit ball but doesn’t win when the Dodgers blow a 3-0 lead, bowing to San Francisco at Candlestick Park, 4-3.

1995       Mo Vaughn and John Valentin hit grand slams in consecutive innings, accounting for all the runs in the Red Sox’ 8-0 victory over the Yankees at the Stadium. The sluggers were teammates on the Seton Hall University baseball team.

1998       At Kauffman Stadium, Darryl Strawberry blasts pinch-hit ninth-inning grand slam when he goes deep off Scott Service to extends the Yankees’ lead over the Royals to 12-6. Straw’s round-tripper is the first of his two pinch-hit bases-loaded homers this season, making him only the fifth player to accomplish the feat.

1999       Nike’s ‘Chicks Dig the Long Ball’ commercial, starring Tom Glavine and Greg Maddux, airs for the first time. The television ad depicts the Braves hurlers, both multiple Cy Young Awards recipients, as pitchers-who-want-to-become-worshipped-home-run-heroes after becoming frustrated by the attention being shown to Cardinal slugger Mark McGwire by Heather Locklear and a friend.

1999       Rafael Palmeiro reaches the 2,000 career hit milestone as the Rangers defeat Cleveland, 8-6. The 34 year-old designated hitter will join Hank Aaron, Willie Mays, and Eddie Murray as the only players to compile 3,000 hits and 500 home runs during their major league careers.

2000       Kerry Wood throws in a game for the first time in nearly 19 months, giving up one run and three hits in six innings in the Cub’ 11-1 rout of Houston. The outing is the first test of the right-hander’s reconstructed elbow.

2000       En route to the team’s ninth division title in ten years, the Braves win their fifteenth consecutive game when they beat L.A. at Chavez Ravine, 5-3. The winning streak, which began on April 16, ties an Atlanta record.

2001       At the Metrodome, Paul O’Neill singles in the ninth inning off Minnesota reliever LaTroy Hawkins, becoming the 215th player to collect 2,000 hits. The Yankee right fielder will retire at the end of the season, recording another 105 safties before ending his 17-year major league career.

2001       The game at the Metrodome, which is delayed for 12 minutes when the umps need to pull the opposing players off the field, comes close to being forfeited by the Twins when unruly spectators pummel Chuck Knoblauch with coins, plastic beer bottles, and golf balls in left field. Minnesota skipper Tom Kelly appeals to the crowd, including over 40 ejected fans, to be calm as the home team defeats their former second baseman and the Yankees, 4-2.

2002       Just missing hitting his fifth homer in the 15-4 victory over the White Sox, Mariners outfielder Mike Cameron becomes the 13th major leaguer to hit four homers in one game. The first two dingers were followed by round-trippers by second baseman Bret Boone, making it the first time the same two teammates have hit back-to-back homers twice in one inning.

2003       The players’ association agrees to a two-year experiment in which the winning league of the All-Star Game will have the home-field advantage during the World Series. Other changes include a roster increase by 2 to 32 players, and a separate ballot for managers, coaches, and players to name the additional nine position players and eight pitchers for each team.

2005       In front of 15,641 fans, the smallest attendance in the 14-year history of Camden Yards, the Orioles’ eight-game winning streak ends when Toronto beat the Birds in 12 innings, 6-5. With the second-best record in the majors, Baltimore has experienced reduced crowds due to the Montreal Expos being relocated to nearby Washington to play as the Nationals.

2005       The Cardinals, trailing 9-3 after eight innings, mount their most remarkable ninth-inning comeback in franchise history, defeating the Reds at the Great American Ball Park. A three-run homer by Jim Edmonds and a two-run round-tripper by John Mabry fuels the seven-run rally in Cincinnati.

2007       Jarrod Saltalamacchia, on his 22nd birthday, makes his major league debut. With 14 letters in his last name, the Braves backstop has the longest surname in baseball history, besting 15 other major leaguers who played with 13 letters in their family name.

2007       Thanks to a winning rally that starts with an infield single in play after hitting the second-highest “B” ring at Tropicana Field, the Rays beat Minnesota, 4-3, in 10 innings. In tomorrow’s contest, a mannequin, wearing a Twins uniform, will mark the spot where Carlos Pena’s fortunate hit struck the roof.

2008       Jose Reyes is thrown out at home plate in an unusual attempt to complete the cycle with an inside-the-park homer. The shortstop’s four hits pace the Mets’ 7-2 win over the Diamondbacks, the club’s 14th victory in the last 15 games played against Arizona at Chase Field.

2019       En route to blanking the Reds at Citi Field, Noah Syndergaard homers, making it only the seventh time in major league history that a pitcher’s round-tripper accounts for the game’s only run in 1-0 shutout. ‘Thor’ becomes the first Met to accomplish the feat, and the first since Dodger right-hander Bob Welch went deep for the only run in his complete-game victory in 1983.
