BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) - Indiana has lost closer Ryan Halstead with a season-ending injury.

The Hoosiers, the preseason favorite to win the Big Ten title, said only that the 6-foot-5, 225-pound senior had undergone surgery and doctors expect a full recovery. They did not provide additional details.

Halstead was injured last weekend in Indiana’s home opener against Xavier.

The right-hander had a school record 11 saves in 2013 and holds the Hoosiers’ career saves record with 23. He is second in school history with 76 career appearances, too.
