Even the weather cooperated yesterday. The weather in Chicago in late November is always a crapshoot, but the winds were light. it wasn’t that cold, and the precipitation stayed away. The sun even decided to make a full appearance in the closing moments of the game, basking our Boilers in a beautiful glow as they salted away the fourth win of the season away from home.
It was quite an accomplishment, really. This is the first regular season that Purdue has won four games away from Ross-Ade Stadium since 1943, when it went 9-0 overall. That was four years before Purdue’s last win in a baseball stadium, a 1947 win over Boston University in Fenway Park.
Purdue is now 7-4 entering the Old Oaken Bucket game, and it will be a strong favorite to get an eighth regular season win for the first time in 15 years.
It’s a good time to be a Purdue fan!
That Wrigley Field football game is finally being played today so I am taking the opportunity to share this quote about football games at Wrigley Field (feel free to use the appropriate Simpsons reference in reply). pic.twitter.com/gwTOtGo2gc— Amos Pearson’s Moose Farm (@Frustrated_Fan) November 20, 2021

So football games in baseball stadiums have to be as boring as baseball games in baseball stadiums, huh?— Casey Bartley (@CaseyBartleyhr) November 20, 2021
Single teaming George on 4th and 10 is an interesting strategy, not a good one, but interesting— Beneath The Paint (@BeneathThePaint) November 20, 2021
