Northwestern (23-24, 10-11 B1G) picked up its biggest series win of the season over the weekend at Rutgers (20-28, 9-11), moving into the 7th place slot in the Big Ten standings with one regular-season conference series left to play. The top eight teams in the Big Ten will qualify for the postseason tournament in Omaha to be played two weeks from now.

Here’s how the weekend went down:

Game 1: W, 5-3

Northwestern squeaked out a win in the series opener thanks to a huge comeback effort that saw the Wildcats put up five runs in the 7th inning after trailing Rutgers for the majority of the game.
