I will be in Omaha at a family function so won't be able to give live updates as much. You can bet I'll be sneaking a listen when I can. Any volunteers to keep score updates for one or both games would be appreciated. GBR!

But after 1 inning, the game is scoreless.

Erstad is ticked.
But after 1 inning, the game is scoreless.
Burkamper is doing alright in his first inning back.
To explain: 2 out 2 on, 2 strikes and the batter took a swing at a pitch but in the process it hit him in the wrist. The ball trickled to Burkamper, who got tagged the batter out. The umpires initially called it that the batter offered at the pitch and was out (would have been regardless as either a third strike or groundout). They took a media break and during that time, the training staff administered assistance to the batter on the field. After the break, the umpires were looking at the batter's wrist and decided to then change the call to a HBP.

Erstad was livid. Justifiably so. Three umpires combined to change a correct call (that the batter offered at the pitch and was out regardless of if they called a 3rd strike or allowed the play to be played out) to an incredibly wrong call (hit by pitch awarded when the batter swung). They brought the Huskers back out to the field with 2 out and bases loaded.

The next batter was retired, so no damage on the scoreboard. Nonetheless ridiculous series of events. Took a full 5 minutes between the initial play and the reversal.
