Nebraska Baseball vs Northern Colorado Open Thread

Baseball Background

Nebraska baseball takes on the Northern Colorado Bears in the second game of a two-game midweek series today at 1:35 PM.

Jake Meyers is scheduled to start for the Huskers on the mound. It will be his first appearance in 2016 and his first career start.

The Huskers won yesterday's game 8-0. Nebraska now leads the series against Northern Colorado 42-6, the Bears' last win against the Huskers in 2014.

From the game notes:

Sophomore Scott Schreiber drove in a career-high four runs with two home runs and a double, while fellow sophomore Garett King tossed 6.0 scoreless innings for his first win of the year.

Schreiber’s two homers were blasted to the deepest part of the ballpark, carrying over the 403-foot sign in left-center field, and they came in consecutive at-bats. It was the first time a Husker hitter had done that since March 14, 2006 when Brandon Buckman did it against Illinois State.

With four home runs on the year, the sophomore from Menasha, Wis., now has one more home run this year in nine games then he had all of last season in 40 games.

You'd think Nebraska's offense is looking pretty decent, but they stranded 22 runners in scoring position in their series against Long Beach State, so....

How to Listen/Watch the Huskers

THIS IS YOUR OPEN THREAD

"Open" meaning you're free to discuss anything although we frown upon discussions of religion or politics and if you've been around much you already know that.

You can discuss why God hates the Nebraska men's basketball program if you like.
