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.

U tennis team wins

The Gophers men’s tennis team defeated Purdue 5-2 at the university’s Baseline Tennis Center, improving to 7-2 in the Big Ten with two regular-season matches to go.

Rok Bonin and Juan Pablo Ramirez opened the day with an 8-2 victory over Diego Acosta and Aaron Dujovne at the second doubles position. After the Gophers secured the doubles point, Bonin beat Mark Kovacs 6-0, 6-2 for a 3-0 Gophers lead.

• The Gophers women’s tennis team (9-12, 3-6 Big Ten) lost 6-1 to 23rd-ranked Purdue (15-3, 7-2) in West Lafayette, Ind. Natallia Pintusava was the lone Gophers winner, 6-3, 6-2 over Mara Schmidt at No. 1 singles.

Golfers third at Iowa

The Gophers men’s golf team tied Charlotte for third place at 16-over-par 880 at the 12-team Hawkeye Invitational in Iowa City. Nebraska (887) was fifth.

Alex Gaugert shot 2-under 214 and placed fourth individually for the Gophers. Erik Van Rooyen (216) tied for sixth. Kansas (867) won the team title by one stroke over Iowa.
