What’s really helpful about playing Purdue is that they have a 25-14 record. Their RPI rank does not matter except for the team sheet, they are quad 3 games.

what's interesting is last weekend Purdue took 2 of 3 from Michigan so they are not a push over by any means. they won 18-4 and 12-4; then, on Sunday, Michigan blew them out 13-2.

i am hoping the Hawks can at least take 2 of 3.

Iowa is gonna have to win the big ten tournament to make the field
Not necessarily. I think if Iowa goes 9-1 or better over these last ten they’d be in. Do I think they can do that? No, but stranger things have happened. My guess is Iowa goes 7-3.

Does anybody else’s big ten + show the game not starting until 6:00? I’m pretty sure they are playing now.

Iowa has a well rested bullpen for the rest of the series. It was nice not having to use Nedved yesterday.

It does help to be sure. Has been the case for the last couple of months with Mazur dominating. Only sweep has been Minnesota in that time. Really hoping Schulz and Langenberg can at least give decent/good starts, as if they do the rested bullpen really becomes a factor. Just can't get down 5-6 runs immediately like last week at Nebraska in Game 2.

Purdue RHP Wyatt Wendell (4-2, 4.85 ERA) is coming off a strong outing last weekend.

Let's hope the Hawks ate their Wheaties and brought their batting shoes.

Looks like we only have one good pitcher. After he’s done, we’re sunk.
