Wednesday Night Big Ten Baseball Tournament: Gamethread, TV, Radio & Streaming Options

Nebraska opens their Big Ten Tournament by playing the Purdue Boilermakers in Bloomington, Indiana at 4:00 CST. It is rainy, somewhat cold, and even worse attended than when the event was in Minneapolis in 2015.

In earlier action, Minnesota staged a comeback against Indiana. The Hoosiers were up 4-1 before Minnesota scored four unanswered runs to go up 5-4. The Hoosiers were unable to break Minnesota closer Brian Glowicki, who recorded the last four outs to send the Gophers to the winners bracket.

In the second contest, Northwestern took a 3-1 lead behind home runs from Connor Lind and Alex Erro. Michigan then scored three runs to take a 4-3 lead.

Northwestern rallied for three runs off of Michigan closer Jackson Lamb who had not allowed a run all season. Michigan was unable to complete the comeback in the bottom half of the ninth.

The Wildcats advanced to face Minnesota tomorrow in the winners bracket game at 4:00. Michigan drops to the losers bracket against Indiana with first pitch scheduled for 10:00.

Nebraska and Purdue kick things off to start the evening action. The Huskers will send Jake Hohensee to the mound to face off against Purdue pitcher Tanner Andrews.

A quick scouting report on Andrews, he is mainly a fastball and slider pitcher. He will throw a change-up but not as common as his fastball or slider. His fastball will sit between 86-89, maybe touching 90.

Hohensee has not been sharp recently, but a Purdue lineup that relies more on putting balls in play could help him regain his form. Purdue bats .259, and is led by Skyler Hunter who bats .325.

Overall, Purdue is a team that puts balls in play, tries to steal lots of bases (77 this year) and plays low scoring contests. The Huskers typically do well in these games.

It will continue to rain tonight, and Maryland and Iowa get to play after Nebraska and Purdue. Depending on the results, Nebraska will play one of those two teams tomorrow.
