Wichita, Kan. – Nebraska's offense failed to notch a hit in the first inning, but then went on to get at least one hit in every inning the rest of the game on its way to a 17-hit performance in a 7-3 win over the Wichita State Shockers on Tuesday night at Eck Stadium. The Huskers improved to 14-9 on the year with the win, while junior Kyle Kubat picked up his first win of the year in 6.2 strong innings and Zach Hirsch earned his second save with 2.1 innings of scoreless relief.
Things to note here:
Kyle Kubat had a nice outing for Nebraska.
Zach Hirsch has really found a place on this team.
Wichita State has a RPI of 43, so it's a nice road win for Nebraska.
