CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (Purdue Sports) — Purdue baseball scored in more innings but No. 25 Illinois tallied multiple runs in all three innings in which it scored, defeating the Boilermakers 6-4 Sunday.

The Boilermakers (19-31, 7-13 B1G) held the lead in the sixth inning or later of all three games this weekend, but suffered their fourth series sweep of the season. All four have come on the road as part of a 5-23 mark in true road games.

Purdue remains alive in the Big Ten Tournament chase, but will need to sweep Ohio State (9-12 B1G) at home next weekend to have a chance to qualify for the eight-team field for the third year in a row.

The Boilermakers did not strike out at the plate Sunday, marking the first time they accomplished that feat since an April 2012 win at Nebraska.

Jeff Korte's RBI triple into the right field corner broke a 4-4 tie in the bottom of the sixth. The Fighting Illini (34-16, 13-8 B1G) had a run-scoring extra-base hit in all three innings in which they scored.

Purdue had 14 batters reached base safely over the first four innings, but could only score three runs during that stretch. Four base runners were erased on non-force outs over the first three frames. The Boilermakers had a runner cut down at the plate trying to score on a pitch that skipped away from the catcher, a runner picked off at first base, a runner cut down at second trying to advance on a pitch in the dirt, and a base stealer thrown out at second base. Those plays accounted for four of the eight outs Illinois starter Cyrillo Watson was credited with over 2 2/3 innings.

In the series, the Illini bullpen worked 14 1/3 innings of three-run ball, limited the Boilermakers to a .188 batting average.
