WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (Purdue Sports) — Purdue (8-27, 1-5 B1G) plays host to Northwestern (22-11, 5-3 B1G) in a three-game series at Bittinger Stadium beginning Friday. Northwestern won its Minnesota and Nebraska series' 2-1, and split a doubleheader with Illinois.

This weekend is full of promotions for fans to take part in as the Boilermakers are holding silent auctions proceeds going to the Riley Children's Hospital on Friday and to the St. Vincent NICU Unit on Saturday. Only cash or checks will be accepted when bidding for any of the featured items in the silent auction, including signed memorabilia by football head coach Jeff Brohm and men's basketball coach Matt Painter.

The Boilermakers are coming off a week in which they defeated Notre Dame and dropped a three-game series to No. 17 Michigan. Sydney Bates was dominant against the Fighting Irish and showed flashes against one of the top offenses in the Big Ten. The redshirt freshman allowed just one run in a complete-game 64-pitch victory against Notre Dame in South Bend, Indiana, when the Fighting Irish were ranked as the top offense in the ACC and boasted a top-30 RPI.

Bates then allowed just two earned runs in six innings of work in the opener against the Wolverines and followed up on Sunday with four innings of one run ball until Michigan broke the game open in the fifth with a grand slam.

Freshman Rachel Krzysko hit .400 with a run scored and a sacrifice in the four starts in left field that she was given. Jenny Behan and Alexa Binckes each registered three hits in the four-game span and the three-four combo added three doubles, three runs batted in and a run scored as well.
