Gophers in tight race for first in Big Ten baseball

Posted by: Roman Augustoviz under Sports Updated: May 6, 2013 - 2:55 AM

The Gophers baseball team won two of three baseball games over last-place Penn State last weekend on the road, but the one loss -- 4-3 in10 innings on Sunday -- tightened up the Big Ten race.

Minnesota, 28-15, 11-4 in the conference, now has a one-game lead, which will shrink to one-half game after Indiana plays at Nebraska on Monday afternoon. Both those teams are 12-5, tied for second.

The Gophers have only six games left in conference play -- all at home. They play Nebraska next weekend, then finish with Illinois, 9-9 in conference play.

Then the U of M hosts the Big Ten tournament at Target Field May 22-25.
