Nebraska lost the first game of the series 7-5. The Huskers took a 5-3 lead into the seventh inning at which point Kyle Kubat exited the game to be relieved by Dylan Vogt. Vogt proceeded to give up five hits and four runs, including three singles with two outs, giving the Wolverines the lead.

Nebraska had tying runs on base in both of the final two frames, but were unable to come up with the hits to score as Wolverine Jacob Cronenworth squashed the hopes of Huskers and fans across the world by getting Blake Headley to hit a line drive straight into the glove of Ohio State's third baseman whose name I won't mention because I now hate him even though it's not his fault that Nebraska had destiny in the palm of their hands and threw it away like an unscratched lottery ticket.

Destiny? Yes, destiny!

Both Minnesota and Indiana had lost earlier, and a win against Michigan could have put Nebraska into a tie with Ohio State for first place. Instead, the Huskers drop to third behind the Hoosiers and Buckeyes.

Indiana and Ohio State both own tie-breakers over Nebraska, so if the Buckeyes and Hoosiers split their next two games, they'll finish 1-2 with the Huskers remaining at third.

Tonight's game will be broadcast on NET across the state of Nebraska, so watch it, dammit! Or listen to it on the radio. Better yet, head out to Haymarket and scream at Michigan.
