BLOOMINGTON, Ind. Chad Clark hit a two-run home run to cap a four-run bottom of the ninth inning for Indiana and lift the Hoosiers to a 5-4 win over Valparaiso in the first game of the NCAA Bloomington regional on Friday.

Clark, who committed a costly two-run error in the top half of the ninth, made amends for his mistake by hammering a pitch over the wall in left field. Clark was 2-for-4 with three RBIs.

Dustin DeMuth and Casey Smith also had RBI hits for the Hoosiers (44-14) in the comeback effort.

Indiana scored all four ninth-inning runs against Valpo closer Karch Kowalczyk, who had allowed only one earned run over 25 innings (0.36 ERA).
