Though Illinois lost their opener Friday against Nebraska, Cam McDonald got busy Saturday to turn things around. McDonald, a former Hall standout, hit a double in the first to bring in two runs making it 4 – zip, Illinois. The Ladd native connected in the third to bring in one run. And, just when it was needed most, in the 5th, Cam got his third RBI to tie the game at six. Illinois won 10 – 8 and continues their home series against the Cornhuskers at Noon on Easter. Illinois's starting pitcher Saturday was another Hall grad, Ty Rybarczyk.
