WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Purdue finished off Friday's weather-suspended baseball game, by beating Michigan 6-3 in game two of the series, early Saturday.
Shortly after, the Boilermakers and Wolverines got underway in game three, which Purdue went on to win, 2-1.
Purdue's two wins on Saturday are significant for several reasons.
Saturday's wins cap-off a 34-win regular season, just two years after the Boilermakers won 10 games in 2016.
This weekend's sweep marks the first time Purdue has swept Michigan since 1993.
Saturday's early win locked-in the two-seed for Purdue in the upcoming Big Ten tournament. The Boilermakers will play Ohio State in the first round.
Purdue's closing pitcher, Ross Learnard broke Purdue's single-season save record, earning his 14th and 15th saves of the season on Saturday.
We spoke with Purdue Head Coach Mark Wasikowski following the sweep.
