CLEARWATER, Fla.–Yesterday’s Indiana-West Virginia game was overshadowed by an scary incident in the seventh inning, when Hoosier freshman reliever Wyatt Hoff was struck in the face by a line drive off the bat of Justin Parks. A scout who was there reports that Hoff lay face-down on the ground, and when he lifted his face there was blood everywhere. Hoff was rushed immediately to the hospital, but there is good news to report today. Hoff had stitches just below his eye and spent the night in the hospital, but he’s expected to make a full recovery.
Here at Jack Russell Stadium, Jedd Gyorko continues to mash. After stinging a single to left field in his previous at-bat, Gyorko blasted a solo shot to left field in the seventh inning to tie this game at 4-4. Minnesota had taken a one-run lead in the top of the frame on Derek McCallum’s RBI single to right field. McCallum has a very nice line drive stroke and is a solid athlete with good defensive skills in the middle of the infield. He ranked as the No. 7 prospect in the Northwoods League last summer, and I could see him going in the top 10 rounds of the draft this June.
