The Minnesota Gophers starting pitching staff was stellar once against against Indiana State, but it wasn’t enough as the Gophers dropped two of three against the Sycamores.
Pitchers Tom Windle and Ben Meyer continued their hot pitching streaks against Indiana State in the first two games.
In front of many professional scouts, Windle was efficient on Friday but was handed the 2-1 loss. The staff ace allowed only one earned run in his complete game performance, but an error by catcher Kurt Schlangen proved costly.
The junior struck out just one batter in his second complete game of the season. Windle (2-2) dropped his ERA to 1.89 on the season.
On Saturday, the Gophers won its only game of the series, 3-0. Ben Meyer (3-2) shined for his third straight victory, dazzling for a complete game shutout. The Minnesota pitcher struck out a career-high 11 batters in the win.
Minnesota will be busy over spring break, traveling to Manhattan, Kan., before coming home to the Metrodome to battle Texas over the weekend.
