Northwestern baseball may have played the worst series ever


Northwestern baseball did not have a fun time this weekend.

For its last homestand of the year, Northwestern welcomed in Cal, a good team that is on the bubble of the NCAA Tournament. Northwestern entered the series 13-34 and sniffing the record for the most losses in a season in program history (38 in 1992). What proceeded was a series of the most violently one-sided baseball games in recent memory.

In the four-game tilt, Northwestern lost 16-0, 15-3, 13-2, and 15-0. On Senior Weekend, the results hurt even more.

It's hard to explain in words. So I made some charts, if y'all want to take a look. VIEWER DISCRETION ADVISED. It's pretty gruesome.

Northwestern finishes its season at Rutgers. Now 13-38, the Wildcats must sweep the Scarlet Knights in Piscataway on May 19, 20 and 21 to avoid the most losses in a season in school history. Rutgers sits at 25-26 on the year.
