After falling behind in the first inning 2-0, the Illini fought back with a phenomenal effort from pitcher John Kravetz and defeated Indiana 7-3, improving their record to 16-12.

Kravetz gave up two runs in the first inning, but settled in and responded well only allowing one run the next 6 1/3 innings. Ronnie Muck came in to relive Kravetz to get the five out save, the first save the Illini have had this season. The top of the Illini lineup, including Thomas Lindauer, Willie Argo, Justin Parr, and Brandon Hohl were the bulk of the offense. All four of them went 2-4 with 1 RBI an

d had at least one run scored, second baseman Reid Roper also went 2-4 with an RBI.

The Illini will look to take the series tomorrow when they play at 1:05 on Easter Sunday. They have one more home game against Eastern Illinois on Tuesday before they head out on their next road trip.
