Pitching matchup: MSU sophomore RHP Trevor Fitts (0-0, 2.42 ERA) vs. IU freshman LHP Will Coursen-Carr (5-0, 1.80 ERA)

MSU lineup: Frazier SS, Detz 3B, Renfroe RF, Pirtle 2B, Rea 1B, Bradford CF, Henderson LF, Ammirati C, Armstrong DH

Pregame song(s): Mary Jane’s Last Dance by Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers The first lyric is “She grew up in an Indiana town.” Also one of my favorite Tom Petty songs. I hope you enjoy.

One big thing to watch: Good position: If the Bulldogs win today, they will be one win away from the championship series and will not play again until Friday. If they lose they come back Wednesday for an elimination game.
