In the first game of three against Purdue on Friday the Lions were unable to battle back from an early deficit losing 5-3. Sean Deegan, Michael Glantz, and Steranka all had two-hit games.

In the first half of a doubleheader on Sunday, the Lions offense got going quickly putting up two runs in the bottom of the first inning including a lead off home run by Deegan. The squad cruised to a 4-3 win behind senior pitcher Heath Johnson’s complete game gem.

In the latter game of the afternoon, Purdue’s offense was on point in a 15-4 loss for the Lions. Freshman starter Greg Welsh, 1-1, took the loss surrendering six runs in 2.1 innings of work.

The Lions have played three series against Big Ten teams taking two of the three. The have five sets of games remaining with conference opponents before the season is over. This week the squad hosts Maryland on Wednesday evening and Ohio State for a three game weekend series starting Friday at 6:35 p.m.
