    6-5 winner!

    Where would we be without Seth Kinker? Dude is mustard. Another three inning save but I believe he could throw again Sunday because his pitch count was low...maybe 25 pitches.

    Great atmosphere in Champaign...3,000+ on Star Wars night and they were really into it. We couldn’t get a sellout at BDS if the Yankees were in town! Anyway, great and much needed win. Beating RPI group 1 teams on the road is how you make the postseason. I want to believe

    Baseball: OSU wins series over Illinois, claims 30th win of year
    The Buckeyes are one of the surprise teams in the Big Ten this season
    The Ohio State baseball team won a pivotal three-game series at Illinois this weekend.

    The Buckeyes (30-15, 11-7) prevailed in two contests against the Fighting Illini (27-16, 11-7), including a 10-5 victory in the rubber game on Sunday.

    Ohio State won the first game of the series on Friday 6-5, due in large part to a three-inning save from standout senior closer Seth Kinker.

    Illinois game back on Saturday and beat OSU to the tune of 11-3.

    But the Buckeyes jumped on the Illini on Sunday and never looked back. Ohio State led by as much as seven at one point (10-3 in the seventh).

    Kinker once again pitched the final three innings of the win.

    Ohio State's offensive attack was led by junior Kobie Foppe and sophomore Noah West who each collected two hits and four RBIs. Junior catcher Jacob Barnwell added two hits and a run knocked in for OSU.

    The Buckeyes are now tied for fourth place in the Big Ten with their aforementioned 11-7 mark. Minnesota and Michigan are both 13-3 in conference play, while Purdue checks in at 12-4.

    Ohio State has its final five home games of the season this week. The Buckeyes will host Campbell on Tuesday and Wednesday, and will begin a three-game series with Purdue on Friday in Columbus.

    OSU will end the regular season with a game at Cincinnati on May 15, and then a three-game series at Michigan State beginning May 17.
