TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - In a great hometown outing, former Terre Haute South and current Indiana pitcher Tim Herrin shutdown Indiana State baseball in a win at Bob Warn Field.

The former Braves' standout threw 4 strikeouts in four shutout innings in the Hoosiers' 5-3 over the Sycamores.

The 11th-ranked Hoosiers jumped out to an early lead in the 2nd inning after Ryan Fineman hit a solo homerun over the wall in left-centerfield. But Indiana State quickly responded in the bottom of the frame with a pair of RBI hits off the bats of Jake Means and Jarrod Watkins.

Indiana would tie it back up in the 3rd and take control in the 5th inning with a two-run homer from Logan Sowers. The Trees tried to rally in the 9th with a solo homerun from CJ Huntley, but couldn't finish the comeback.

The loss snaps a nine-game winning streak for Indiana State. Up next for the Sycamores is a three-game home series against Missouri Valley opponent Missouri State.
