Right-hander Jonathon Crawford (0-1, 3.60 ERA) will make his fourth start of the year to open the series and will face IU junior left-hander Joey DeNato (1-1, 2.03).
In a matchup of right-handers, Tucker Simpson (0-1, 4.15) will oppose the Hoosier's Aaron Slegers (1-0, 0.00) in the second game of the series and right-hander Eric Hanhold (0-0, 5.19) will start Sunday's finale for the Gators against Indiana southpaw Kyle Hart (1-0, 3.07).
