The Indiana Hoosiers had never been shut out in a single game all season long. Unfortunately, they chose the wrong time to do so.
Indiana left eleven runners on base and could not get a single one home, as Oregon State defeated Indiana 1-0 to end their season in Omaha.
The Beavers’ Matt Boyd was spectacular all game on the mound, pitching a complete game and allowing just four hits on eleven strikeouts. Oregon State’s one run came in the top of the fourth inning when Jake Rodriguez hit a sacrifice fly to trot in Kavin Keyes.
Indiana’s Aaron Siegers pitched a complete game as well, allowing that lone run along with seven hits and five strikeouts.
The loss ended the Hoosiers historic season, one which saw them finish with a 49-16 record, a Big Ten championship, and an advancement to the College World Series for the first time.
