Three Sweeps & A 'Cats Win

Illinois, Minnesota and Michigan State all had series sweeps this weekend. Illinois took three straight on the road at Penn State. The Gophers broomed Purdue out of the Metrodome. The Spartans went 3-0 at Iowa.

Northwestern avoided the sweep by downing Ohio State today and Indiana stayed amongst the conference leaders by taking two of three at Michigan.

If I have this correct, the standings look like this:

Ohio State 11-4
Illinois 11-4
Minnesota 10-4
Indiana 10-4
Michigan State 8-7
Michigan 6-9
Purdue 5-9
Penn State 5-10
Northwestern 3-10
Iowa 3-11

I'll state the obvious. This is a close race. You need look no further than the loss column where the top four sides have the same number.

A reminder: Barring the unexpected, I'll be at the College Baseball Blog's weekly chat at 9pm this evening. You are welcome to join us and ask your college baseball questions.
