Bloomington, IN (AP) - Catcher Kyle Schwarber homered, Justin Cureton made a critical leaping catch and Indiana earned its first regional title by beating Austin Peay for the second consecutive night, winning 6-1 in the championship of the Bloomington Regional on Sunday.
The Hoosiers (46-14) will play Florida State in next week's Super Regional in Tallahassee.
Indiana got three runs in the first inning on Schwarber's solo shot to right field and RBI singles by Michael Basil and Casey Smith.
That run support proved to be plenty for the Indiana pitching staff, which allowed only six hits and struck out eight. The pitchers got plenty of help from their defense, especially from Cureton, who robbed P.J. Torres of a three-run homer with a difficult catch over the wall in the second.
