Illinois 2, Indiana 1
Junior starter John Kravetz led Illinois to a 2-1 victory over No. 24 Indiana on Saturday, evening the series at Illinois Field and ending the Hoosiers' 10-game conference winning streak. Kravetz shined with one run over 7.1 innings and the bullpen closed out the Illini's eighth one-run win, with sophomore Tyler Jay collecting his seventh save. "That was a great college baseball game," head coach Dan Hartleb said. "You had two great teams that played well and we were fortunate to come out on top. John Kravetz was outstanding and our bullpen came in and did a great job. The right side of our infield also made diving plays at crucial times." RECAP

Michigan State 7, Northwestern 1
A great outing from starting pitcher Justin Alleman and an efficient offensive attack guided the Michigan State baseball team past Northwestern, 7-1, on Saturday afternoon at McLane Baseball Stadium. Alleman allowed just one run off four hits in 7 2/3 innings, while seven different Spartans picked up hits as MSU improved to 23-17 overall and pulled even at .500 in the Big Ten at 7-7. "Justin was lights-out," said MSU head coach Jake Boss Jr. "His stuff is really, really good and when he's in the strike zone consistently, he's tough to hit. He was as good as he's been all year today." RECAP

Ohio State 2, Purdue 0
Ryan Riga tossed 7.2 scoreless frames to lift the Ohio State baseball team over Purdue, 2-0, Saturday afternoon at Alexander Field. With the win, the Buckeyes improve to 24-19, 5-9 in the Big Ten, while the Boilermakers fall to 11-28, 5-9 in conference play. "We had a tough, 13-inning loss last night," Ohio State head coach Greg Beals said. "I thought we played well but came up a little short on the scoreboard. After the game, we knew we still had a chance to win the series and we got a great start out Riga today while executing as a team. We were hoping to get six innings and 80 pitches out of him but he had control of the game so we kept him in." RECAP
