Baseball: What to know for Indiana

Ohio will be faced with one of its biggest challenges all season this weekend when it heads to Bloomington, Indiana, to take on Indiana (27-11, 9-3 Big 10). 

Indiana has faced a few familiar foes in the Mid-American Conference such as Ball State and Kent State, who each was beaten handily in their one-game matchups. Both of these teams currently sit ahead of Ohio in the MAC standings, so a win for Ohio could foreshadow a run in the MAC that could see Ohio as champions. 

Here is all you need to know for the weekend:

Series History 

The Bobcats have taken on the Hoosiers once in the team's history. The matchup took place in 2017 and Ohio was handed an 11-2 loss at a neutral site. No one on Ohio’s active roster played during that first matchup. 

Player to Watch

A.J. Rausch - Rausch leads the Bobcats in stolen bases with 13 and had a great series against Miami. The speedy center fielder picked up a hit in each of the three games last weekend as well as a three-hit performance in the finale where he was also able to tally a pair of RBIs and a pair of stolen bases.
