WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Purdue scored nine runs in the second inning to make it 10-0, and hardly slowed down after.

Central Catholic grad, Tyler Powers was 3-for-5 with two RBI and three runs.
Fellow CC grad, Evan Kennedy finished the game 2-for-3 with three RBI and two runs.
McCutcheon grad Braden Giroux pitched-in an RBI and a run.
