MSU's starter today Jake Lowery (6'3, 235, RHP, RS Jr.) is a converted reliever. His last two starts (at Northwestern, vs. Iowa): 20 strikeouts, just one walk. Might be tough sledding again today.

Edit: And a .195 Opp BA. Oof.

Bottom 2nd

Leadoff single to RF for Miller! Roskam also singles to RF! Alvarado singles to LF to load the bases! Wilkening grounds into a 5-4-3 triple play. That sucks.

That was rough. Anyone at the game or streaming the video on BTN Plus or whatever? How'd it look? Radio guys seemed to think the ball was fielded in foul territory.

This team finds new ways to be inept with RISP. I usually just hope they stay out of a double play.....who knew there was something worse?

Per the radio crew:
First triple play converted against Nebraska since Texas A&M in 2005.
Nebraska last turned a triple play in 2007.

Top 3rd

An E6 throwing error allows a one out runner. Next better grounds out to the pitcher but the runner advances to 2nd on the play. RBI single to LF and the runner advances to 2nd on the throw home. K ends the frame.

I remember that triple play from 2005. I think it was Daniel Bruce who hit it. I think we ended up winning the game though.

Fast moving game today. Need to find some way to disrupt Lowery, he's been on cruise control since that triple play.

Another E6 gets the leadoff runner on for MSU. Single to RF puts runners on 1st and 2nd. SAC bunt moves the runners to 2nd and 3rd. SAC fly scores the runner from 3rd. K ends the inning.

Both runs scored so far are unearned.

Being taught to hit for base hits and no power leads to many double play attempts.

Im trying to find out how many DP's Nebraska has hit into this year. They are 8th in the country in DP's turned with 51 but not sure how many we have hit into.

Wilkening singles through the right side to load the bases. Another pitching change for MSU. Schlepp Ks. Raburn in to pinch hit for Klenke and he pops out to 2nd.

Huskers.com's stats has 36 GDP, but it only has our opponents at 40 so I'm not sure where the other 11 are.

Luis Alvarado now in to close it up for the Huskers. One out single to CF. Next two batters walk to load the bases. Next batter Ks as Wilkening is able to snag a foul tipped ball for out #3. Fly out to LF ends the game and ties the series!

Always have to make things interesting at the end. This moves us back into first place(assuming Maryland doesn't score 8 runs in the 9th inning) and also clinches us a spot in the B1G tournament, I believe.
