Indeed, it's drizzling, but Indiana is playing Eastern Kentucky today at Bart Kaufman Field. First pitch is set for 5 p.m. or thereabouts (it's 4:51 and I do not think we're going to see a pitch in nine minutes, based on the activity of players on the field.
Lineups coming in a second ...

First pitch 5:06. Grisham slaps a first-pitch double into left field.
He's picked off two pitches later. Nice move from Morris.
Morris allows one more baserunner but gets out of the top of the first unscathed.
Kyle Schwarber just oppoed the first pitch he saw for a home run to left center. That was a monster shot, considering he hit it the other way. 1-0 Hoosiers.
That's all for the Hoosiers in the first. 20th time they've scored in the first inning this season. 1-0.
Another EKU double comes to nothing in the top of the second. Indiana still leads 1-0.
Dustin DeMuth gets on by beating out a routine ground ball, but he overslides second after beating a throw down on a steal attempt. Casey Smith then walks, so we're back where we started.
Lynch getting wild on the mound now. Has walked Smith and Clark, and both moved up on a wild pitch.
And Justin Cureton check swings a grounder to third on a 3-2 pitch with two outs, beats out the throw for an infield single. Small ball gets Indiana to 2-0, runners on the corners with two down for Schwarber.
Cureton gets caught drifting off of first, tagged out in a rundown. Inning over. Not great base running, but Indiana still leaves the second with another run.
Morris allows the Colonels two singles in three pitches to begin the third. Luke Harrison headed to the 'pen to warm up.
Morris induces a fly out to right, then loads the bases with a walk. Harrison is done warming up.
Induces a grounder to first, 3-6 fielder's choise, as Shaun Ball beats the throw. Run scores, two out and a runner on each corner. 2-1 Indiana.
After gunning one strike across to the next batter, Morris is pulled for Harrison. He'll come on with two outs, runners at the corners and an 0-1 count, protecting a 2-1 lead in the third.
EKU scores on a double steal. Chad Clark probably shouldn't have thrown that. 2-2.
And then Morris strikes out the third out of the inning, but it's now 2-2 headed into the bottom of the third.
Scott Donley reaches first on an infield single and second on a wild pitch, but Michael Basil flies out to right to end the third. Still 2-2.
Back-to-back two-out singles have runners at the corners with two outs in the fourth.
Casey Smith reaches on an error in the fourth, is replaced at first by Nick Ramos on a fielder's choice. Chad Clark walks, and then Justin Cureton loops a two-out single to right. 3-2 Indiana, runners on the corners with two out in the fourth. Schwarber up.
Schwarber chops out to second. Inning over. Headed to the fifth, Indiana up 3-2.
Had to step out for a second, missed the home half of the fifth. Basil doubled, and then DeMuth doubled him home before getting caught out between second and third. Again with the bad baserunning, but Indiana's now on top 4-2. We're in the sixth now, EKU half.
Harrison in a nice groove now, has put down seven straight. Indiana up 4-2 hitting the home half of the sixth.
Quiet bottom of the sixth for Indiana. Still 4-2.
Ryan Halstead starting to loosen up in the bullpen as Indiana has two down in the top of the seventh.
