Indiana University - Big 10 Conferance
Took 2 of 3 from Memphis last weekend......

Indiana out of the overrated Big 10 conference, has been to five regionals in the last six years, the Hoosiers return seven regulars from last year’s 40-win team that finished at or near the top of the league in most hitting categories. Highlighting the key returnees is preseason All-American OF Matt Gorski (.356/.404/.554, 8 HR, 24 SB), a good hitter who wreaks havoc on the basepaths and was an all-conference selection a year ago. As one of the better two-way players in the country, senior 1B/RHP Matt Lloyd (.275/.356/.458, with 9 home runs; 1.54 with 7 saves) provides middle of the order pop from the left side and works at 90-93 mph with sink when closing out games. Junior 1B/DH Scott Bradley (.326/.446/.536, with 7 home runs) is a dangerous hitter from the left side. Outfielder Elijah Dunham’s (.250/.361/.338) emergence this fall has been a bright spot, as the sophomore appears primed to add big-time power to an already potent offense.

The Hoosiers return a healthy cache of veteran arms. Anchoring the rotation is senior righty Pauly Milto (8-2, 2.03). Milto will likely be joined in the rotation by RHP Tanner Gordon, a junior college transfer from John A. Logan who sits 90-94 mph with his fastball and works downhill from a well-proportioned 6-foot-5, 215-pound frame. Junior LHP Cameron Beauchamp (4-1, 3.78, 43 SO) is a candidate to round out the weekend rotation after starting 10 games as a sophomore. He owns a solid three-pitch mix highlighted by a 93-94 mph fastball and a plus slider. A pitchability lefty with feel for three pitches, sophomore Tommy Sommer (2-1, 3.07 with 1 save) figures to be another key arm for the Hoosiers. Junior RHP Cal Krueger (7-2, 3.02 with 3 saves) pounds the zone with sinkers and sliders and will again be a go-to arm out of the pen.

A healthy balance of veteran bats and arms leaves the Hoosiers primed for another regional berth.
