Husker BaseballAustin, TX - The Texas Longhorns (18-7, 5-4) finally had enough of the Husker pitching. The Longhorns came into the series with one of the best offenses in the country and until today, the Husker pitching had shut them down, allowing just 4 runs on 9 hits in the first two contests and 0 runs on 2 hits in the previous 14 innings.

Unfortunately for Husker starter Aaron Pribanic (2-1), the Longhorn bats came alive today. The Horns put up 12 runs on 14 hits as they pounded the Huskers 12-3.

With the loss, the Huskers move to 20-4-1 overall and 7-1-1 in the Big XII.

Of the few bright spots on the afternoon, Junior Cody Neer slammed a 2-run bomb in the top of the 7th to bring the Huskers within 3 at 6-3. Unfortunately, Jordan Danks answered the very same inning with a 2-run blast of his own.  Jake Opitz extended his hitting streak to 7 games with a 1 for 4 day and Craig Corriston chipped in a run and an RBI in his 2 for 4 day.

The Huskers next take the field on Tuesday as they take on the Creighton Bluejays at Omaha’s Rosenbaltt stadium. First pitch is set for 6:35 pm.
