Purdue already won the series, but IU made sure to avoid a clean sweep on Sunday.

The Hoosiers defeated the Boilermakers 14-9 Sunday afternoon at Alexander Field in West Lafayette, Indiana, preventing Purdue from a 3-0 weekend series sweep.

Indiana (16-3-2, 4-4-1 Big Ten) broke a 1-1 tie in the top of the fifth with a seven-run effort to regain the lead for good, adding six insurance runs over the next four frames.

Six different Hoosiers recorded at least one RBI; five finished with two or more in Sunday's victory.

On the mound, IU sophomore right-hander Pauly Milto (2-2) allowed five earned runs off seven hits while tossing three strikeouts in 7.1 innings to earn the win. He had allowed just one earned run through seven innings before a four-run bottom of the eighth, the inning in which he got subbed out for junior lefty Austin Foote.

Indiana returns to action Tuesday night with a 6 p.m. ET midweek matchup against Indiana State in Terre Haute.
