Baseball outlasts IU in extra innings



By David Schuh

The UK baseball team recovered from an early deficit to beat Indiana University in 12 innings on Wednesday.

Tied at four entering the twelfth inning, the Cats scored a run on an RBI single by junior Cameron Flynn. But, the Hoosiers answered, scoring on a single to match UK and extend the game.

After a leadoff single in the twelfth, freshman Austin Cousino scored on a balk with two outs to plate the eventual winning run, as the No. 7 Cats won 5-4.

Freshman A.J. Reed pithed 5.1 innings of relief, only giving up one run on four hits with six strikeouts.

The Cats (38-11, 15-9 SEC) welcome Alabama to town this weekend for three game series. First pitch on Friday is scheduled for 7 p.m.
