    For a team with little power, the huskers are poor at bunting. Bad combination in close games.

    Altavilla fouled one off his foot, hopefully it doesn't affect him too bad.

    6 more outs. So frustrating but then again

    If Iowa wins this they could end up hosting a regional. :Cool::Cool:

    They sure seem to save their worst effort for whenever they face Iowa.

    Inability to hit with RISP and/or move runners with less than two outs appears to be an issue that will keep this team from achieving a higher ceiling in the postseason.
    So frustrating, but it's been an issue all year + post season last year.
    Hopefully they prove me wrong, but tough to change your stripes after >50 games......

    Also, the scissor lift has been lowered to its original position.

    Of course not. It's Iowa. The team we can't buy a clutch hit against.

    Roskam HBP
    Meyers FC 1-6
    Altavilla FC 5-4
    --2 OUTS--
    Schreiber single to LF, Altavilla only made it to 2nd b/c he wasn't running on contact.
    Miller single through the left side

    Alvarado K swinging

    IOWA WINS 2-0.
    Iowa plays the winner of Indiana-Minnesota tomorrow.
    Nebraska plays Maryland in Game 10 (might be tonight, might be tomorrow).

    I didn't for one single moment have even a shred of faith that we'd get it done even after loading the bases in the 8th and 9th. I could have practically staked my life that it would end in a strikeout. It was practically the most predictable thing about the game.

    9 innings. 12 hits. 0 runs. Never seen it. Can't get upset. Just baseball.

    Welp, these last two games is Husker Baseball in a nutshell.

    Pitch Meyers tonight? Or go with McSteen with the hopes Meyers pitches tomorrow? Tourney isn't as important as a regional so who knows.

    Some brilliant coaching by Iowa late in the game. That was a nail biter.

    Good luck rest of the way.

    Meyers. I know it sounds strange, but I don't think a 35-20 team with an rpi possibly in the mid 40s is a 100 percent lock for the tourney, especially when if they only go 1-2 this weekend. We better hope that Iowa or northwestern don't win the tournament. I get that we won the regular season title, but our resume is good, not great.

    Throw in playing a Maryland team that faded down the stretch and might not be a lock anymore, this elimination game is juicy wrt the NCAA tournament.

    We're still a lock but might get a tougher draw

    Yeah, I don't see how we get left out even if we do go 1-2. Not something we want though.

    The one team that I didn't want to play was Iowa, because we never perform against the Hawkeyes. They have our number and I have no confidence in a win against them.
