Sunday, March 17 - 3 p.m. (CT)

RHP Brandon Pierce (1-2) vs. RHP Andrew Morales (5-0)

Nebraska won yesterday's game 4-0 to even the series with UC Irvine.

Check this out:
With a 4-0 lead entering the bottom of the ninth, Taylor Sparks led off the inning with a homerun after reliever Zach Hirsch had retired 10 straight Anteaters. Head Coach Darin Erstad turned the ball over to closer Dylan Vogt, who struggled to find the zone and walked the bases load, forcing Erstad to make a second pitching change in the inning and bring in Roeder. The sophomore transfer from Louisberg College got pinch-hitter Jonathan Munoz to pop out for the first out of the inning. With the top of the Irvine order up, Roeder blew away Dominique Taylor with a fastball and closed out the win when he got pinch-hitter Ryan Cooper to fly out to centerfield for the game's final out.

The 1-2-3 performance with the base loaded earned Roeder his first collegiate save at Nebraska, while Hirsch improved to 1-1 on the year with the win.

"It was definitely never racking," Roeder said after the game. "It brought me back to junior college last year, where I was the closer. There were lots of nerves running through me, but I just calmed myself down and went from there."
It'll be another tough one, and somewhat obvious that a series win against the Anteaters would be a huge boost to Husker baseball right now.

Today's game is not televised, but available via the Husker Radio Network, audio streamed online at Huskers.com or via the Huskers smartphone app.
