    Michigan St eliminates Ohio St 6-2 and will play the Purdue-Indiana loser tomorrow.

    Purdue defeats Indiana 3-0 in the winners bracket game and is one win away from the title. Indiana plays Michigan St in an elimination game tomorrow afternoon.

    Through 7 innings #1 Purdue and #2 Indiana are tied at 4 runs each. If Indiana prevails another game will be played Sunday afternoon.

    Each team scored a run in the 8th and through 8 full it's now 5-5.

    Purdue scores in the top of the 9th in a wild play where the runner off 3rd got caught in a rundown and the next runner came hard into 3rd and the ball was thrown away and that runner scored and then another runner came into third at the 3rd baseman's legs and was thrown out but a bench's clearing brawl ensued (yet no one was thrown out). Purdue is 3 outs away from the B1G title.

    Now a couple of players have been ejected as there were clearly punches thrown.

    I'm going to guess Purdue is the lone Big Ten representative in the NCAA Tournament. Indiana had a 77 RPI coming into today. Michigan State was 43 -- but they probably needed to make the championship game (even in a loss there) to make the NCAA Tournament.

    I would guess one bid league also. A 5th place finish in the regular season, and a 3rd place showing in the tourney, probably doesn't rate an at-large.

    I think that is correct. Michigan St needed to make the championship game and they lost to Indiana twice.And the announcers were clear that it was do or die for Indiana. They played extremely well the last three weeks (starting with sweeping the doubleheader against the Huskers), but they were barely a .500 team before then

    I wonder what the ratio of staff to paid attendance was at the whole series? Every time I caught the husker games on BTN2GO attendance looked pathetic at best. There was even one shot of a guy watching from a screen outside the park (knothole section) and my only thought was, he probably could have gotten seats behind home plate for free.

    It will be interesting to see if attendance goes up next year in Minn... and how that compares to what will happen in Omaha. If my calculations are correct, Omaha will be declared the permanent home of the B1G shortly after attendance numbers from the last game of the 2014 tourney become official

    I haven't caught many innings this season, but I've been watching the tourney replays today. Oh boy. The critics were right, the B1G does not have a lot of talent in baseball.
