MSU was also denied a series sweep after taking games one and two of the three-game set with the Hoosiers, winning Thursday night’s game, 8-6, and Friday night’s contest, 7-6. The Spartans clinched a berth in the Big Ten Tournament and will be the No. 8 seed in next week’s B1G Tournament in Omaha, Neb., with game information to be announced later.
