OMAHA, Neb. -- Indiana's Christian Morris lost a no-hitter, but won a game, coach Tracy Smith picked up his 600th career victory and the No. 1 seed Hoosiers advanced in the Big Ten tourney.

IU scored five seventh-inning runs to beat No. 5 seed Michigan 5-0 early Friday morning and will play Saturday against the winner of Michigan State-Illinois at Omaha's TD Ameritrade Park. The Hoosiers (40-13) have won 13 of their last 14 and 28 of the last 31 games.

Morris, a first-team All-Big Ten selection, was too much for Michigan (29-28-1). He allowed just one hit and walked two in seven innings. Relievers Scott Effross and Jake Kelzer each pitched scoreless innings as IU picked up its seventh shutout of the season. Seven have come against Big Ten teams.

Michigan starer Brett Adcock (7-4) pitched a no-hitter into the sixth inning before getting rocked in the seventh. The big hits were third baseman Dustin DeMuth's double, second baseman Casey Rodrigue's two-run triple and catcher Kyle Schwarber's 11th home run of the season.

In two Big Ten tourney games Rodrigue is 4-for-6 with two triples and four runs batted in.

IU's starters have gone 49 straight starts without surrendering more than three earned runs. In their last 14 starts, they have given up just five earned runs in 75.2 innings.
