Will Grimmer shot a 4-under-par 66 to tie for second place and lead Ohio State to a third-place finish in the Big Ten championships in Baltimore, Maryland.

Grimmer and Northwestern's Ryan Lumsden finished at 206, one stroke behind Dylan Meyer of Illinois.

Illinois won the team title at 829, followed by Northwestern at 845 and OSU at 855. The third-place finish was Ohio State's best in the conference since 2004.


Ohio State's eight-run eighth inning was not enough to catch Nebraska (26-16-1, 9-5-1), which won the Big Ten game 11-9 at Bill Davis Stadium.

Shea Murray had a two-run double in the eighth and Bo Coolen and Jalen Washington each had two-run singles as Ohio State (17-26, 5-10) cut Nebraska's lead to 11-9.

Brady Cherry led off the OSU ninth with a single, but Luis Alvarado got a flyout and two strikeouts to earn his eighth save.


Lea Thompson's two-out, two-run double keyed a three-run rally in the sixth inning that gave Iowa (17-29, 8-12) a 4-2 victory over Ohio State (30-14, 13-7) in a Big Ten game at Buckeye Field.
