Wow, we really put it to Purdue, today! When the going got tough, they folded. As it was said
during the game, they (Purdue) have never been tested like they were today. Well done,
Lincoln - In front of a season-high crowd of 6,257 fans at Hawks Field on Saturday afternoon,

of runs. With a RBI single in the fifth, Michael Pritchard extended his hitting streak to 17 games.
