Huskers look to bounce back

Jon Johnston

After dropping a 4-2 decision in the series opener, the Nebraska baseball team looks for a bounce back victory on Sunday afternoon. The Huskers currently sit in second place in the Big Ten, but are just 3.5 games out of eighth place.

Nebraska continued to struggle with runners in scoring position on Saturday, going 1 for 9 in those situations. The Huskers only hit was a RBI double by Mojo Hagge that fell on the chalk down the left field line.

The Huskers will send Nate Fisher to the mound to try and stop the bleeding. Fisher was solid last weekend, pitching six innings against Illinois, while picking up a no decision.
