Nebraska Baseball Regular Season Finale at Purdue Saturday Game Thread

Michigan State knocked Purdue out of the Big Ten Tournament last night as they beat Indiana, so today is just a seeding formality for Nebraska.

Location: Alexander Field, West Lafayette, IN

Date/Time: Saturday, May 20th @ 1 pm CT

Head Coaches: Will Bolt (4th season, 94-73-1) & Greg Goff (4th season, 386-337-1)

Probable Pitchers: LHP Jackson Brockett (2-1, 4.50 ERA) vs. LHP Jonathan Blackwell (5-5, 6.21 ERA)

Series: Tied 1-1

Tarp sightings on the field: One!

  • Jackson Brockett gets the nod today. Don’t expect any pitcher to go super long. We should see a lot of bodies out of the bullpen I would imagine, in preparation for next week.
  • Both Brice Matthews (back) and Casey Burnham are being rested for this game.
  • Thanks to Northwestern beating Iowa last night (what?!) and Minnesota winning the first two games against Rutgers (WHAT?!) Nebraska is looking like it will be either the 3 or 4 seed for the tournament next week. I can’t Imagine Iowa would lose the series to NW, so I’d bank on being the 4 seed against 5 seeded Rutgers.
