Aces open German American Bank Field with win over Indiana

EVANSVILLE - On a night meant for celebration, the University of Evansville baseball team followed suit, downing Indiana, 5-4, on opening night of German American Bank Field at Charles H. Braun Stadium in Evansville.

The evening began with three ceremonial first pitches, including members from German American Bank and UE President Chris Pietruszkiewicz to celebrate the opening of the newly renovated stadium.

Evansville got its offense started early, scoring a run in the bottom of the first inning. After senior Craig Shepherd reach base, junior Tanner Craig smashed a double off the wall in left field, scoring Shepherd and giving the Aces a one-run advantage early.
