Nebraska Baseball takes series in Minnesota


Nebraska baseball stayed in the hunt for a Big Ten Conference title this weekend with a series win at Minnesota.

The Huskers led the Gophers in the first two games but fell in Sunday’s finale. NU is now 30-16 on the season, including 12-6 in the Big Ten. That puts them in a tie for second behind Illinois, which leads the league at 13-5.

Minnesota is now 21-21 with a league record of 7-11.

Nebraska won a relatively high-scoring affair on Friday night, thanks in part to Dylan Carey’s two-run home run in the seventh inning. That gave NU a lead that would not be given back, as the Huskers won 10-7.

The series ended Saturday with a 7-3 Husker victory. Joshua Overbeek had a 3-for-5 day with a homer, three RBIs and two runs. Josh Caron had three hits and an RBI, while Dylan Carey went 2-for-5 with a double, an RBI and a run scored.

In Sunday’s final, NU pulled off the sweep, with Minnesota scoring a pair of runs in the first inning and never relinquishing the lead en route to the 6-2 final.

Nebraska returns home Wednesday to host South Dakota State for a single game before a three-game weekend series in Lincoln against Indiana. The Huskers’ regular season concludes the following weekend with three games at Michigan State.
