Captured: Baseball: Northwestern gets clobbered by Purdue’s offense in a series sweep

This year’s ‘Cats Classic at Wrigley Field ended in a series sweep to Purdue. Northwestern couldn’t keep up with the Boilermakers’ (29-15, 11-4 Big Ten) offense, with 30 runs conceded in the three-game series. The Wildcats (13-26, 2-13 Big Ten) scored seven runs in their loss on Saturday, but it was too little too late. 


Now, NU has a chance to turn its luck around Tuesday in Chicago against UIC.
