Nebraska Baseball Set for Doubleheader vs Maryland

Nebraska looks to stretch it's win streak to 6

The 18th ranked Nebraska Baseball team travels to College Park, Maryland where they will resume conference play against the Maryland Terrapins. After rain postponed the first game of the series, the Huskers and Terrapins will play two on Saturday afternoon before finishing the series Sunday afternoon.

The Huskers will look to Chance Sinclair to get off to a good start against Maryland. Sinclair has been dealing lately and will look to shut down a Maryland lineup that has some power. While Nebraska has only 6 home runs as a team, Maryland's Brandon Lowe has 6 by himself.

Nebraska will also need to work quality at bats against Mike Shawaryn who sits undefeated on the season at 6-0. Shawaryn is not invincible though, as he features a fastball and a slider. He will throw the occasional change but this is more of a show pitch and not an out pitch. If Nebraska can be patient, it stands a good chance to pick up a high quality win against a ranked team.

Nebraska will go with a different look line up today, as provided by Darin Erstad.

In the second game look for Kyle Kubat to throw a lot of change ups and to attack Maryland hitters. After Shawaryn, Terrapins starting pitching has been questionable at best. If the Huskers can jump out to an early lead they should be able to rely on the bullpen to lock it down.
