Nebraska allows three home runs in loss.
A day after giving up two grand slams, Nebraska gave up three home runs in a 6-3 loss to the Wichita State Shockers. Nate Fisher was tagged for the loss after giving up five runs in just 2.1 innings pitched. Nebraska went just 2-16 with runners on base after going 2-18 yesterday.
Neither team had much going in the first two innings before the Shockers exploded in their half of the third. Wichita State would send 10 men to the plate, with both Greyson Jenista and Alec Bohm hitting home runs as the big blows. Matt Waldron would come in and replace Fisher and get the final two outs of the inning.
Nebraska managed to get on the board in the fourth when Mojo Hagge scored after tripling and scampering home on a Scott Schreiber ground out. Nebraska missed opportunities for a big inning starting when Schreiber checked his swing on a 2-0 pitch and got his RBI. Jesse Wilkening thought he had ball four on a pitch outside, but it was called a strike and he would ground out. After back to back hits from Luke Roskam and Jaxon Hallmark, Nebraska stranded them with a strikeout of Jeff Athey.
