Gophers baseball coach John Anderson recorded his 500th Big Ten victory, and his Gophers completed a three-game sweep of Northwestern with a 7-1 victory Sunday in Evanston, Ill.
The victory also improved the Gophers to 22-13 overall, 7-2 in the conference. They have won all three of their series in conference play; they earlier took series over Michigan and Ohio State.
A five-run seventh inning broke the game open for the Gophers. Andy Henkemeyer capped the rally with a two-run triple, and the Gophers also benefited from two Wildcats errors and a wild pitch in the inning. Henkemeyer went 3-for-5, and Connor Schaefbauer was 2-5 with an RBI.
D.J. Snelten worked 6⅔ innings, allowing four hits, for his third victory of the season.
