Nebraska must win this game to get into the NCAA tournament. The Huskers are at 29-29 right now, and teams that are under .500 are not accepted into the NCAA tournament unless they gain the automatic qualification that comes with winning their conference tournament.
HERE WE ARE!
Nebraska won last night, in a game that I think most college baseball fans would have thought going in that the Huskers were a set up to be embarrassed.
IT DID NOT HAPPEN!
We were supposed to be eliminated. Last night, Indiana was ahead 5-2, and the Huskers were supposed to fall down, fall over, give up, and go away.
Instead, Nebraska inched their way back, tying the game in the bottom of the sixth. Indiana used four pitchers that inning, and then Nebraska took a 6-5 lead in the bottom of the seventh.
Nebraska had a chance to win, but in the bottom of the ninth Justin DeMuth scored when Ricky Alfonso hit a double with a 1-2 count and two outs.
Nebraska would strike back when Tanner Lubach hit a homer in the 11th inning to win the game 7-6 in walk-off fashion and the FIGHTING ERSTADS live on to fight another day.
HATS OFF TO DYLAN VOGT!
Seven innings, a career high when his team needed him!
HERE WE ARE!!!
Nebraska wins, we move on, getting a NCAA tourney bid and seeing what that does for us!
Lose, and we're done.
Nebraska starts Kyle Kubat. Indiana starts Will Coursen-Carr.
