STARKVILLE, Miss. -- With the game tied 1-1 in the bottom of the seventh inning, heavy rain began to fall at Dudy Noble Field leading to a rain delay in the Purdue-Mississippi State baseball game.

Both teams scored their lone run in the sixth inning. Kyle Johnson scored on an RBI fielder's choice from Sean McHugh. MSU's Hunter Renfroe homered to leadoff the bottom of the frame, tying the game.

It's possible that Purdue and Mississippi could finish the game Saturday before their scheduled 7 p.m. contest.

Jordan Minch pitched very well for Purdue, working six innings of one-run ball. He surrendered only four hits while striking out five.

The Boilermakers defeated Samford, 9-4, earlier in the day Friday. Purdue scored five times in the eighth inning to break up a close game. Brandon Krieg and Conner Hudnall both had three hits in the win.

Brad Schreiber worked six innings of three-run ball and Eddie De LaRiva closed out the win with three innings of one-run relief for his second win of the season.
