The former Virginia and Madison College infielder changed that with one powerful swing in Indiana’s 5-3 extra-inning win over instate foe Indiana State at Bart Kaufman Field.

After bunting two balls foul, while attempting to advance the leadoff runner to second base, Butler faced a 1-2 count in the bottom of the 10th inning.

No worries, the second baseman roped a shot into the Indiana bullpen over the left-field wall to send the Hoosiers to the extra-inning win.

Watch the blast in the video above.
