Nebraska baseball headed to the Twin Cities where the Huskers took a series from the Minnesota Gophers. Here are some shots of game action from the first two games of the series.

Nebraska baseball headed to the Twin Cities where the Huskers took a series from the Minnesota Gophers. Here are some shots of game action from the first two games of the series.

Impressions of the series:

- It was surprising that Nebraska shut the Gophers out in two of the three games. Minnesota has struggled hitting the ball, but not as much as the Huskers have in pitching.

- Husker bats did well against Minnesota starter Tom Windle on Friday. It was as if the Huskers were on a mission.

- As well as they played Friday, Saturday was a different story. The Gophers started poorly, committing three errors in the first inning and giving the Huskers two runs. It was as if Nebraska thought the game would be a pushover and lost focus after that.

- HC Darin Erstad stood in the dugout for a while after Saturday's loss, staring straight ahead and not saying a word to anyone. He had that look on his face that could melt steel.

- I didn't make Sunday's game, but listened to it in a haze of allergy medicine. I really would have liked to gone, but as it is I'm late publishing this because I am still fogged over.

- Hope you enjoy these!
