Chalk up another victory for Illinois as they overcame Southern Illinois in extra innings 9-7. Aaron Saving (nice name for a reliever, eh?) got the win by pitching a 1-2-3 10th.
Toby Gardenhire doubled in the go-ahead run. In case you’re wondering, Toby is indeed the son of Ron Gardenhire.
The Illini remain in first place, 2 games up on Minnesota.
Big four game set against Northwestern this weekend here in Champaign. Maybe I’ll catch a game or two.
