    Game will begin at 1:30pm eastern (12:30pm central) or 40 minutes after the conclusion of Game 7, whichever is later.

    Iowa will be the home team.

    Plenty of Husker red in the stands already.

    Going to be a high scoring game with the way the wind is blowing out.

    Sucks not being the home team in this game.

    This ball park is totally opposite of TDA. It's a Home Run fest.

    @saluno22 Good sir!

    I got pulled into a sales call with my team so I may be spotty on the updates. The nice thing is it is a off site conference call and I'm there more so for support purposes so I can do my best to give updates. Otherwise feel free to toss out the major scoring plays if I miss anything. :confused:

    T1: Nebraska
    Meyers F7 to wall
    Altavilla K swinging
    Schreiber single thru left side
    Miller infield single (3b mishandled a slow roller, Miller would have been safe regardless believe it or not), ball careens into shallow left allowing Schreiber to take 3rd. Runners on the corners, 2 out.
    Alvarado L5, grab on a hot shot down the line, would have been extra bases if not for a great snag by Adams.

    Scoreless mid 1

    Raburn is at 3rd today, guessing it's to get another right-handed bat.

    That 0-5 had a lot of hard outs and well-hit foul balls. He looked good even without reaching base.

    Agree, too early. Swing away, he's a good switch hitter and you have a power RH bat with wind out to left behind him.

    If he gets it down we avoid the double play! Right call at the time.

    wow, here we go back to about 4 weeks ago when they would get runners on with no outs then strand them every inning. 7 runners LOB through 4 innings. Can someone string something together please. Of all teams to choke against don't make it Iowa.

    Twice now, 2 on no out. Nothing to show for it.

    Come on offense. Don't go into hiding now

    Ironically they've had nothing really all day except one good swing

    I Just Disagree the way the park is playing this weekend, we need big innings not scratching across one run here and there.

    (Both bats might still be ringing on those groundouts)
    Single up the middle
    Single lined to LF, runners on 1st and 2nd
    <mound meeting>
    Adams RBI single up the middle, runners take the extra base, 2-0 IOWA (pounded the inside zone on the first 3 pitches, then went outside and paid for it), runners on the corners, 2 out.
    G4, lucky Schlepp was playing WAY over.

    2-0 Iowa after 5

    Roskam getting loose in the dugout, need to get some offense going. Consequently, Raburn has not been a problem on offense, but there's only so much juice to squeeze out of him. Take the hit he gave us and be thankful.

    Burkamper still on the mound for the 6th.
