Jyawook’s acrobatic snag highlights Evansville’s 14-inning win vs. Indiana


BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — It took four hours and 33 minutes as well as 14 innings of baseball, but Evansville (18-15) defeated Indiana 2-1 on Wednesday night at Bart Kaufman Field. Catcher Travis Tokarek delivered the game-winning, 14th inning RBI single to center field for the one run edge.

Tied at one, Josh Jyawook kept the game tied in the bottom of the fifth.

With two outs and no runners on, Craig Dedelow hit a fly ball to left field that Jyawook ran down as he crashed into the waist high wall and somersaulted into the IU bullpen. Jyawook then rose to his feet on the other side of the wall and showed the ball still in his glove.

“That was one of the most spectacular plays I have seen defensively on a baseball field,” added Carroll. “Seeing him go over the wall and make a Sportscenter Top 10 play was just magnificent.”

Jyawook also collected two hits, moving his hitting streak to 11 straight. Outfielder Jarod Perry also moved his on-base streak to 34 games in the win. First baseman Eric McKibban has now reached base in 21 straight games. The save was the first for Jestice in his collegiate career
