Illinois 6, Penn State 3
Trailing 3-2 after giving up the lead in the seventh, Illinois sent all nine batters to the plate and scored four runs in the eighth as part of a 6-3 comeback victory over Penn State. Sophomore Tyler Jay improved to 2-0 and redshirt-junior Reid Roper earned his second save, as the Illini snapped a three-game skid. Illinois remained in third place in the Big Ten at 7-3 and moved to 19-14 overall. "That was a good win," head coach Dan Hartleb said. "I was pleased with our approach and I thought we played to win. We took advantage of some errors and had the big four-run inning, which was a big positive and something that will propel our offense in the future. We played hard but didn't always play clean, yet still found a way to win." RECAP

Michigan 7, Purdue 6 (12)
Freshman Carmen Benedetti broke a 6-all tie in the 12th with a run-scoring double, lifting the University of Michigan baseball team to a 7-6 win at Purdue on Friday night at Alexander Field. Michigan opened the 12th with a walk from senior Cole Martin, who scampered all the way from first as Benedetti doubled down the right-field line. The Boilermakers put a runner on third with two outs after a one-out single, stolen base and groundout, but sophomore Jacob Cronenworth induced a flyout to end the game. Freshman Brett Adcock improved to 5-2 on the season, striking out six and allowing just one hit in four innings of relief. Cronenworth earned his Big Ten-leading eighth save of the season with his work in the 12th. RECAP

Northwestern 2, Nebraska 1 (12)
Northwestern picked up a pair of clutch two-out hits late Friday night and got two magnificent pitching performances on the mound to help take the series opener from the Nebraska Cornhuskers, 2-1, in 12 innings at Hawks Field. Jake Straub delivered a big RBI single in the seventh inning to tie the game and Cody Stevens laced a base hit up the middle with two outs in the top of the 12th to help the Wildcats beat Nebraska for the first time ever at Hawks Field. It was also Northwestern's first victory in extra innings this season. Hopfner started the game-winning rally as the first batter if the 12th inning. After singling to left field, the right fielder made it to second on a sacrifice bunt by Hoscheit. Straub grounded out to third before Stevens calmly stepped to the dish and ripped a single up the middle that allowed Hopfner to motor around from second base and score the game-winning run. Quigley picked up his second win in relief Friday. The team captain allowed just one hit in 3.1 scoreless innings on the bump. RECAP
