Ooh! This one had to hurt. Illinois had Illinois State down to its last strike with a one-run lead but once again, fielding mishaps proved to be costly.
A base hit, a throwing error by the catcher, and a wild pitch pretty much handed the Cardinals the tying run. Another hit and a throwing error put the winning run on second primed for the inevitable game winning hit.
The Illini head to Indiana this weekend for a four-game series.
