WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - The finale of the Purdue-Minnesota baseball series scheduled for Sunday at Alexander Field has been rained out and will not be made up.
Consistent rain showers Sunday morning continued through the noon hour. Poor field conditions coupled with a 3:30 p.m. ET travel curfew due to Minnesota's flight home from Indianapolis ultimately led to the decision that there would not be time to play a full game. First pitch was slated for noon.
Sunday's cancellation was Purdue's fourth of the season at Alexander Field. It was the Boilermakers' first cancellation in Big Ten play since the 2015 season finale vs. Penn State.
Fans with tickets to Sunday's game can exchange the tickets for general admission seats to any future home date at Alexander Field this season.
The Boilermakers return to action for a home-and-home midweek series vs. Indiana State. Tuesday's game in Terre Haute and Wednesday's game at Alexander Field are both slated for a 6 p.m. ET first pitch.
