Gallery: Nebraska Baseball Wraps Up Regular Season

After a tough midweek loss, the Nebraska Baseball team bounced back, defeating the Cal Poly Mustangs in a 3-2 effort. Nebraska moves back over the .500 mark to 10-9 while picking up their first true road win of the season.

The Huskers got on the board in the first inning with a pair of runs. Angelo Altavilla singled and was replaced by Jake Meyers on a fielders choice. Scott Schreiber then singled down the right field line, moving Meyers to third. A failed pickoff throw scored Meyers and moved Schreiber to second. After a sacrifice fly, Schreiber scored on a pickoff throw to move the Husker lead to 2-0.

While the Huskers had an early lead, Jake Hohensee went to work. Hohensee ran into trouble in the second when the bases were loaded after a hit batter, a single and a walk. A ground out would end the inning with no damage on the scoreboard.

Nebraska and Cal Poly would trade zeros until the sixth inning when the Huskers added an insurance run. Meyers would hit a chopping grounder up the middle and reach on a single. Ben Miller would drive him in with a RBI double into the right center gap to stretch the lead to 3-0.

The Mustangs put together a rally in the seventh to chase Hohensee. With two outs in the inning, Cal Poly platted two runs on four straight base hits. Robbie Palkert would come on and get the final out of the inning.

While the Huskers could not add anything at the plate, Palkert would stay in for the eighth. He would strikeout the side while mixing in a two out base hit.

Luis Alvarado came in and closed out the game for the Huskers. Alvarado got a fly ball, a pair of strikeouts to get his second save of the season. Nebraska and Cal Poly resume their four game series tomorrow afternoon with first pitch scheduled for 4:00 PM.
