For a team with little power, the huskers are poor at bunting. Bad combination in close games.
<pitching change: righty Matt Waldron inherits a 1-0 count>
6-3 DP on a hot shot up the middle, 2 out.
3-pitch K swinging
2-0 Iowa after 6
Hagge G4 chopper
Raburn K swinging
Meyers single through the right side
Altavilla K looking
2-0 Iowa, mid 7
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.
3-pitch K looking
2-0 Iowa after 7
Hopefully that can translate to offense.
Damn, Waldron DEALING.
Iowa's starter coming back out for the 8th
Time to knock him out of the game
Only 2 batters without a hit so far...and we're held scoreless.
Time for Schlep
Extra bases here would be great!
Miller L6 diving catch up the middle
Alvarado single up the middle
Wilkening single through the left side, 2 on, 2 out.
<pitching change, righty>
<started leaves after 120+ pitches>

Holy cow, ELEVEN left on base

Adams K looking
<looked like Waldron had the runner picked off in the 3rd AB>
P5 in foul territory
Caught stealing at 2nd
2-0 Iowa after 8
They sure seem to save their worst effort for whenever they face Iowa.
Nice to see Waldron pitching well. We will need this come regionals
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.
New CF for Iowa
Roskam PH for Raburn
I checked in just in time for the comeback right?
Damn. Beat them in every way but the runs column. F
Of course not. It's Iowa. The team we can't buy a clutch hit against.
Meyers FC 1-6
Altavilla FC 5-4
Schreiber single to LF, Altavilla only made it to 2nd b/c he wasn't running on contact.
Miller single through the left side
<Henwood PR for Miller>
<pitching change, righty #17>
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).
Wow.. great job by our pitching staff though. Gotta bounce back tonight.
Nebraska stranded 14 runners.
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.
Might be tomorrow. Can't start a game after 10pm local.
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.
It's the Heller jinx.
I knew we should have saved some runs last Saturday against Penn St.
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.
