Semifinal Saturday at the 2017 Big Ten Baseball Tournament featured Iowa vs. Minnesota and Maryland vs. Northwestern. The Hawkeyes and the Terrapins both needed two wins to advance to the Sunday’s final.
Maryland’s 9-5 win over Northwestern Saturday afternoon forced a rematch game with elimination on the line for both teams Saturday night, but that game was pushed to Sunday morning due to time constraints. Iowa defeated Minnesota 7-5 in 13 innings–the longest game in Big Ten Tournament history–to advance to Sunday’s championship game.
The Maryland-Northwestern elimination game was played at 9 a.m. ET Sunday, with the winner (Northwestern, 6-5 over Maryland) advancing to the championship game vs. Iowa at 1 p.m. ET. Both games will be aired live on BTN and streamed on BTN2Go.
