Video: Tony Butler ropes first HR, an extra-inning walk-off blast
B1G HIGHLIGHT - Tony Butler, facing 1-2 count, blasts first career homer to lead Indiana to extra-inning win.
Tony Butler came to the plate in extra innings Sunday afternoon as the owner of zero career home runs.
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.
Butler wasn’t the only Big Ten player with a walk-off home run Sunday.
