The good vibes just keep coming for the Scarlet Knights baseball team who notched their 13th consecutive victory with a 5-3 win over Big Ten rival, Indiana at Bainton Field in Piscataway.

The hero of the day was Evan Sleight, whose two-run single in the bottom of the eighth inning drove in the winning runs for Rutgers. Rutgers trailed Indiana 3-2 heading into the bottom of the eighth before Josh Kuroda-Grauer tied the game at three on a sac fly to center, scoring Danny DiGeorgio.

Nick Cimilo and Ryan Lasko both hit two huge game-tying home runs earlier in the contest.

On the hill, Jared Kollar gave up two runs, one earned, over six innings of work. Sam Bello got the victory, allowing a run over two innings of work. Dale Stanovich got the save.
