Tom Crean threw out the ceremonial first pitch at the Minnesota-Indiana baseball game Thursday night. The Hoosiers, who were looking to clinch their second consecutive outright Big Ten title, lost a 2-1 decision in extra innings. Indiana can wrap up the outright crown with a win Friday or Saturday. It could also do it with a Nebraska loss in one of its final two games. Watch Indiana host Minnesota at 8 p.m. ET tonight on BTN/BTN2Go.
Sometimes, rivalries take a backseat to reality. That was evident at the Cincinnati-Ohio State baseball game Tuesday, as the Bearcats added No. 11 patches to the right sleeve of their jersey. The patch honors Ohio State freshman pitcher Zach Farmer, who was diagnosed with myeloid leukemia late last month and will miss the rest of the season. See a picture of the patch in this post.

Ohio State baseball players are determined to help out teammate Zach Farmer, who was diagnosed with myeloid leukemia in late April. The Buckeyes and staff – 37 in all – swabbed their cheeks with Q-Tips Monday to see whether they are a match for Farmer, or anyone else in the nation.
