Recap| Box Score

Ohio State head coach Bob Todd
“I think Greg Prenger was the story. He did an outstanding job on the mound. There were two lefthanders in the middle of their lineup that gave them trouble, but he was able to neutralize everyone else.

“When Mike Check and Mike Harris do their job and get on base we can manufacture some runs. They can shake up a defense.”

Greg Prenger
“In the bullpen I was a little off. I could not find my sinker. It took me about 20 pitches to find it. My changeup helped me get out of a lot of situations. I threw a lot of fastballs and they hit them right at my defense. I did not expect to pitch like this tonight.”

Illinois head coach Itch Jones
“Prenger did an outstanding job on the mound and their offense produced runs. That was a the ballgame.”

Andy Schutzenhofer
“He (Prenger) threw a lot of pitches for strikes. He did a lot better job control wise and he was ahead of a lot of batters.”
