Stanford 5, Indiana 4 | RECAP | BOX

With one swing of the bat, the 2014 Indiana (44-15) baseball season came to a close as Stanford (34-24) shortstop Tommy Edman hit a walk-off two-run homer in the bottom of the ninth to give the Cardinal a 5-4 win in the Bloomington Regional finale at Bart Kaufman Field on Monday. Stanford moves on to play Vanderbilt in the Super Regionals this weekend.

The Hoosiers took a 4-3 lead into the bottom of the ninth after scoring the go-ahead run in the top of the eighth. Stanford’s Wayne Taylor singled to centerfield to begin the Cardinal ninth. After a sac bunt moved over pinch-runner Drew Jackson to second, the left-handed-hitting Edman connected with the first pitch he saw from IU reliever Scott Effross and launched it over the right field wall for the win.
