WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Purdue baseball got back on track Tuesday, beating Oral Roberts 7-6.

Central Catholic graduate Evan Kennedy pulled a two-run homer over the right field wall in the bottom of the eighth inning to stretch Purdue's lead to three runs.

The Boilermakers then allowed two runs in the ninth, and the Eagles had the go-ahead run at-bat, but pitcher Ross Learnard was able to close it out.

Purdue has now won 15 of its last 17 games, despite dropping two of three games at Ohio State this past weekend.

Next up for the Boilermakers is a three-game home series against Michigan, beginning Thursday.
