Will Coursen-Carr (5-0) pitched four innings of relief for Indiana (48-14), allowing just one earned run. Coursen-Carr earned the victory in the Big Ten tournament final, regional title game and super regional clincher.

After Florida State (47-17) scored three runs in the top of the fifth to tie the game 5-5, Travis gave the Hoosiers the lead for good in the bottom of the inning.
