Nebraska took game one from Texas Tech last night, as Johnny Dorn was brilliant once again. He pitched 7.1 innings, striking out 10 and only allowing one hit. Too bad the one hit was a solo home run to Red Raider Doug Thennis in the fifth inning, but if that’s all the damage that was done, I’ll take it!
Dorn moved to 4-0 on the season. He remains a force on Friday and the best reason we have a great shot at winning every conference series this season. If you have any doubt to his pitching prowess, consider that he struck out the side in both the sixth and seventh innings.
Craig Corriston hit his second home run of the year, while Cody Neer and Jake Optiz knocked in a pair of runs, while Mitch Abeita provided another.
Today’s game begins at 2:05 pm today. Consider this a game day thread if you care to discuss Husker baseball.
[Update - Texas Tech blog Double T Nation has a write up on yesterday's game. Should have checked this before.]

- Texas A&M beat a struggling KSU team 7-2

If you haven’t been following college baseball around the nation, you’re missing the juggernaut that is Arizona State. They have routinely been destroying everyone, having only lost one game (surprisingly enough to Northern Colorado). Yesterday they beat Stanford 6-4, and Stanford has been playing well this season.
