Nebraska took care of the New Jersey Institute of Technology this afternoon 18-4 and now will look to push the Fayetteville Regional to an if necessary game tomorrow night. Kyle Perry gets the ball for the Huskers and Lael Lockhart gets the ball for the Razorbacks.
The Huskers will look to continue their hot start at the plate from today. Nebraska set a season high for runs with 18 against NJIT. Four Huskers hit home runs, and the bullpen was mostly saved for tonight. Shay Schanaman, Caleb Feekin, and Braxton Bragg combined to hold the Highlanders to just four runs.
For the Hogs, they get a key piece back in their lineup. After being injured in the SEC Tournament, Brady Slavens is back in the lineup. After being held to just five hits last night, the Huskers will need to be better about being in the zone and not walking double digit batters if they want to have a chance.
