LOS ANGELES — Joey DeNato was lights out Thursday afternoon at Page Stadium. The diminutive sophomore southpaw pitched a complete-game, three-hitter to help Indiana to a 3-1 victory over Loyola Marymount.

After the game, I talked with DeNato and Hoosiers head coach Tracy Smith. Both talked about the importance of DeNato’s performance with Indiana playing eight games in eight days. DeNato, a San Diego native, talked about being able to see family and friends and staying at home during the Hoosiers’ West Coast road trip: Continue reading
