Nebraska Baseball Gamethread: Season Opener!!!!!

Chad Luensmann and Nebraska open the 2019 season

After previewing the first series of the year, it is time for the Huskers to take the field. Nebraska and the University of California Riverside kickoff the 2019 season with a four game series this weekend.

Tonight’s pitching duel features Chad Luensmann returning from Tommy John surgery going up against junior college transfer Hayden Petrovick. Luensmann will be on a 50-70 pitch limit while Petrovick moves up in competition from last season.

Behind Luensmann, Head Coach Darin Erstad will have options out of the bullpen including Matt Waldron, a starter from last season.

The Huskers and Riverside are set for first pitch at 6 p.m. local time, with rain in the forecast for Riverside. The last time the Huskers and Highlanders were set for a four game series, rain forced the cancellation of two of the contests in Tempe, Arizona.

Nebraska (0-0) at UC Riverside (0-0)
