Illinois 8, Penn State 3
Illinois used a four-run inning late in the game for the second day in a row to battle back and beat Penn State on Saturday, 8-3. Sophomore Adam Walton extended his career-high hitting streak to 16 games with a go-ahead two-run single with the bases loaded and two outs in the seventh. Junior David Kerian connected on another two-run base knock in the seventh and junior Will Krug tacked on the same in the eighth. "We got a lot of clutch hitting with two outs today," head coach Dan Hartleb said. "It was good to see some guys take good swings in key situations. The one that was huge was Adam Walton taking the ball to right field with the bases loaded and two outs. Road wins aren't easy, but we found a way to win again." RECAP

Purdue 6, Michigan 2
Gavin Downs did not surrender an earned run while working seven innings of three-hit ball and his battery mate Sean McHugh led the way offensively with his fifth career four-hit game, lifting Purdue baseball to a 6-2 win against Michigan Saturday afternoon at Alexander Field. Downs (2-4) retired 14 of 15 batters from the first through fifth innings, working 1-2-3 frames in the second and fourth. The seven innings marked his longest outing as a Boilermaker. The redshirt-sophomore earned his first career victory in Big Ten play. McHugh singled in each of his first four at-bats, delivering two-out RBI hits in the second and sixth innings. He walked in his final plate appearance and the free pass also helped Purdue score an insurance run. RECAP
