OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Eli Wilson drove in the go-ahead run in the fifth inning and Minnesota pitchers limited Michigan State to five hits in a 3-2 victory in the first round of the Big Ten Tournament on Wednesday night.

The top-seeded Gophers (38-13) have won 22 of 25 games and will play Thursday night against Illinois. The eighth-seeded Spartans (20-31) meet Indiana in an elimination game.

Wilson singled to left center off Mitchell Tyranski (2-2) to drive in Ben Mazzenga, who had doubled and taken third on a wild pitch. Mazzenga was called safe at third, though television replays showed Zach Iverson tagged him before he touched the bag.

Brett Schulze (9-0) pitched 3 2/3 shutout innings in relief of starter Jake Stevenson, and freshman closer Max Meyer got the last five outs for his conference-leading 15th save.
