Michigan is now 11-8 in conference play.
Michigan Baseball comes back to beat Purdue 9-8.
Great win for Michigan. That keeps Michigan in 6th place, the last seed for the Big Ten Tournament. Illinois won today against Penn State, but Michigan State lost to Iowa. It is essential Michigan wins its next two games in order to make the Big Ten Tournament.
It does even better than keeping us in 6th; it actually moved us up to 5th.

Michigan has 2 more against Purdue and 3 at Nebraska. MSU has 2 more at Iowa and 3 at Penn State. Illinois has 2 more against Penn State and 3 at Minnesota.
MSU has the easiest schedule, but a couple more wins for Michigan on Saturday & Sunday will give us some breathing room for next weekend.
