After pounding out a season high 15 hits, the Huskers will look to take the series from Loyola Marymount on Sunday afternoon. The Huskers got contributions from everyone in the lineup yesterday, as the only Husker who did not have a hit was Ben Miller.
This afternoon, the Huskers will send sophomore Derek Burkamper to the hill to face Tylor Megill of the Lions. Burkamper pitched well last weekend, getting through six innings and only allowing three runs. Megill is 2-0 on the young season, and is the brother of yesterday's starter Trevor.
Darin Erstad has made no change's to yesterday's lineup, opting to start Tanner Lubach for a third straight day at catcher. If Burkamper runs into trouble, the Husker bullpen is fresh, after only using freshman Jake Meyer yesterday. Look for Jeff Chestnut and Josh Roeder to possibly get in some work before next weekends big tournament down in Texas.

The Huskers Women's Basketball team is also in action on Sunday afternoon. It is senior day, as the Huskers will lose five seniors from their current squad. The Huskers will receive a stern test from the Ohio State Buckeyes, and this game could have impacts on BIG tournament seeding. If the Cornhuskers want to make a deep run in the tournament, beating the Buckeyes would be a quality victory.
