Welcome to the first Nebraska baseball game of the 2012 season, the first of the Darin Erstad era, and the first as a member of the Big Ten conference!
Tonight's game will feature Huskers sophomore LHP Zach Hirsch going up against Bulldogs sophomore LHP Marco Gonzales. Hirsch is making his first start for the Huskers, while Gonzales pitched well enough in his freshman campaign to be named the West Coast Conference Co-Player of the Year. Gonzales 11-game winning streak is tied with three other pitchers for the second-longest season in the nation.
Keep in mind that these are open threads. They are not restricted solely to Husker baseball talk. There may be times this season CN opens a game thread on Friday night that will be used the entire weekend. You're free to discuss whatever you wish, Huskers or not. I only ask you avoid religion and politics.
iPhone users can download the "Huskers" app and listen to streaming through their phone. You can also download the SB Nation iPhone and Droid apps and follow our game threads on those.
I will be at a lock-in for the night with a bunch of teenagers. Lucky me. I'll be checking in periodically with my iPhone, so please be posting some scores and innings for me. - JJ
