Husker BaseballStillwater, OK - The Husker (25-6-1, 11-3-1) baseball team bounced back in impressive fashion today, taking the last game from the Oklahoma State Cowboys 14-5.  Craig Corriston and Nick Sullivan combined for 7 RBIs and Bryce Nimmo reached 5 of 6 times today from the leadoff spot for the first time thies year in place of the slumping DJ Belfonte.  While Dan Jennings came in for 4 scoreless innings of relief to seal the victory.

 Winning in Stillwater isn’t exactly easy.  16 times the Pokes have played a game there this year and today’s victory was only the 2nd for a visiting team.

The Huskers got the early lead 5-2 by scoring 4 in the 3rd without the benefit of a hit.  3 walks, 1 hit batter and 2 errors allowed the Huskers to take the early lead.

The Huskers would add to that in the 4th when  a wild pitch and a Craig Corriston double drove home would bring in 3 runs to make the score 8-2.

Aaron Pribanic got the start, but ran into trouble in the 5th when he allowed 3 earned runs (1 after he left) to score before Dan Jennings came in to stop the bleeding.  Dan would not relent as he only allowed 1 hit over the next for to shut down the Cowboy attack.  Mike Nesseth came in to seal the 9th for the 25th win of the year for the Huskers.

The Huskers came right back with 3 runs of their own the next inning to put the game out of reach when Nick Sullivan hit a two single to drive in Abeita and Mort and was then brought in himself when the next batter, Corriston, drilled a 2-out double to left center.

The win keeps the Huskers a half game behind Texas A&M for the conference lead seemingly setting up a big series in Lincoln the 2nd to last weekend of the year.

The Huskers next host the #5 Wichita State Shockers in Lincoln on Tuesday at 6:35pm.
