Husker BaseballLincoln, NE - Texas Tech’s Doug Thennis hit a solo shot off Johnny Dorn in the 5th.  That one short sentence describes the entire offensive output against Dorn Friday evening.   The home crowd of 6,593 watched as Dorn and the #9 Huskers (22-4-1, 8-1-1) put a muzzle on the visiting Red Raiders (16-13, 4-6)by the score of 6-2.

Dorn allowed just the 1 hit over 7.1 innings and although he walked three, he also struck out 10.  With the win, Dorn moved to 4-0 on the year with a measly 2.12 ERA and is currently 3rd in the Big XII with 48 Ks behind Kendal Volz of Baylor (50) and Missuori’s Aaron Crow (67).

At the plate, the Huskers scored the first two runs in the 2nd inning when Junior transfer Cody Neer ripped  a 1-1 pitch into right center scoring Bryce Nimmo and Craig Corriston.  In the third, the Huskers would double that lead when Jake Opitz tripled home DJ Belfonte and Mitch Abeita followed up with a double to score Opitz.

Craig Corriston answered Tech’s 1 run shot in the 5th with a solo shot of his own in the 6th on the 2nd pitch of the inning that chased starter Nathan Karns.

The Huskers will try for their 4th straight Big XII series win on Saturday at 2:05 pm at Hawks field.  Coming off his brilliant 2-hit shutout of Texas last week, Senior Thad Weber (4-1, 3.20 ERA) will look to do the same against the Red Raiders.

NebraskaDoc Sadler has received a two year extension and a $100,000 per year raise from the University of Nerbaska.  Sadler can also receive more money if the Huskers make it to the big tournament and even more if they get some wins. 

Marc Boehm said entry into the NCAA tourney would earn Sadler an extra $100,000. More money comes with any NCAA victories: $30,000 in the first round; $40,000 in the second; $55,000 in the third; and $75,000 in the fourth.

In other Nebraska Basketball news, center Shang Ping has decided to transfer to a different school to seek more playing time.

A national championship would be worth $200,000

NebraskaThere is talk in Lincoln that Cody Glenn is moving to the linebacker position for his senior season.  There is a logjam at the running back position, and Glenn says he just wants to help out the team anyway he can.

The Lincoln Journal Star is saying that Glenn approached the coaching staff about the change and also talked to his former high school coach about it.  It appears Glenn wants the best for the team, and he thinks he can really help out on the defensive side of the ball.

What do you think Husker fans?  Do you think Glenn can play the linebacker position?  He will have the rest of spring ball and over the summer to learn the playbook.
