It had been nearly a full decade since Purdue baseball won the rubber game of a weekend series at home, but eight zeros from the pitching staff helped the Boilermakers clinch a series victory with a 6-2 win vs. Southeast Missouri at Alexander Field. Purdue (17-26) won its fourth weekend series of the season on Sunday, three coming via rubber-game victories. The Boilermakers have now won three rubber games in the same year for the first time since 2011, but they had not won a rubber game at home since the 2009 regular-season finale vs. Illinois. The program had lost 10 consecutive rubber games at home during that span.
