HuskersLincoln, NE - The Huskers (9-2) took both ends of a doubleheader Sunday over the Northern Colorado Bears (5-7) 3-2 and 8-5.  The wins were the 7th and 8th consecutive victories, all of which started at the beginning of this 12 game home stand.

In the opener, the Huskers used a strong start from Junior right-hander Dan Jennings to fight off an equally strong start from former Husker Jon Klausing.  The Huskers managed just 3 hits against their former teammate, scoring just two runs, both in the 3rd inning.  DJ Belfonte coaxed a one-out walk and Jake Mort singled on a hit and run to put runners on the corners.  Senior Jake Opitz grounded out to first, but brought Belfonte home and moved up Jake Mort who was then brought home by a Bryce Nimmo RBI.

Northern Colorado got a run back in the 5th off a double and single (the only two hits allowed by Jennings).  Northern Colorado threatened again in the 7th when Jennings walked the first two batters and was relieved by Mike Nesseth.  Nesseth made a play on a sacrifice, but tried to get the lead runner and third and everyone was safe.

Nesseth managed to get the next hitter into a double play, but the damage was done and the tying run came across.  The game remained locked at 2 until the eigth when Craig Corriston singled home Mitch Abeita for the go ahead run.  Erik Anderson set the Bears down in order in the ninth for his first career save.

In game 2, the Huskers came out aggresive scoring four runs in the first inning and adding another in the 2nd off of David Stewart’s first career homer. 

Thad Weber was sharp early keeping a shutout through the 5 innings.  In the 6th however, he ran into trouble allowing 4 runs (2 earned) including a 2 run bomb by Kevin Sandberg.  He allowed 1 more in the 7th on an RBI double to bring the Bears within 3.

With the tying run at the plate, Zach Herr closed the door getting an inning ending groudout to end the threat.  Northern Colorado would not threaten again as Zach Heer struckout the next 5 batters before inducing a popout to end the game.  Zach ended with a career best 6 strikeouts over 2.2 innings of work to earn his first save of the year.

Despite Thad Weber’s rocky inning, the Husker pitching continues to be the suprise story for the Huskers.  The Bears have managed just 14 hits through 27 innings this weekend.  Plus, the Husker bullpen hasn’t allowed a run over the last 22 innings dating back to February 24th.

The Huskers play the series finale on Monday at 1:35 pm.  The Huskers send Junior JC transfer Aaron Pribanic (1-0, 1.86 ERA) to the hill against Senior Dan Kazell (0-0, 9.35 ERA) for Northern Colorado.
