Husker baseball season got off to a rocky start this weekend after losing three straight games to the Fresno State Bulldogs. The bad news is the way they lost. In game one, the Huskers lead 5-3 going into the bottom of the ninth, then gave up four runs,including a two-run game-winning home, to lose 7-5. In game two, they loaded the bases in the sixth, eighth and ninth innings, but failed to score a single line. The result was a 8-2 loss.
The third game was more of the same, as Nebraska lead 8-6 going into the ninth, but allowed Fresno State to score two runs to tie the game and put it into extra innings. The Huskers lead 9-8 in the 11th, but again allowed Fresno State to score two runs, the game winner coming on a wild pitch.
The last game of the series is Monday night at 8:00 pm central.

Disappointing start for Texas, as they've already lost the series to New Mexico (and with it, probably their #1 standing), but like Husker fans, Horns fans shouldn't panic just yet.
