Purdue Baseball Hosts #14 Maryland For Final Series

The end of the season is here, and this weekend is a big one for Purdue.

While winning that is a longshot, making the event is still a step forward towards what should be a solid 2023 season. If they were to surprise and win it (and they have the bats to get hot and win it), Purdue would reach the NCAA Tournament this year via an automatic bid. The current RPI is far too low for an at large bid, so it would be auto-bid-or-bust.
