Northwestern (18-17, 6-6 Big Ten) took advantage of the warm weather this weekend to win two of its three games against the Michigan State Spartans (16-21, 3-9 Big Ten). The Wildcats dominated their first game Saturday, tallying 14 points against Michigan’s two. The Cats controlled the second game as graduate student pitcher Michael Farinelli held the Spartans to no runs until the eighth inning.
