Big Ten baseball tournament 2014: Ohio State sees Nebraska walk-off with win, again - Land-Grant Holy Land

Ohio State suffered their fourth one-run loss to Nebraska, their third-consecutive walk-off loss to the Huskers putting their season on the brink in the process.

"The ninth inning, again, got away from us against Nebraska," Beals said. "We've played Nebraska for now 36 innings and we've beaten them for 32 of those 36 innings and are now 0-4."

From the Ohio State perspective. Great quote there from Greg Beals, Ohio State's head baseball coach.

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Long the Big Ten's forgotten sport, baseball is making a comeback in the conference. The most visible sign of progress: Indiana last year became the first Big Ten member since 1984 to play in the College World Series. Aided by the infusion of cash from the Big Ten Network, five schools have opened new stadiums the past seven years.
