Nebraska Baseball takes series in Minnesota | KLIN


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

The Huskers topped the Gophers in two games and dropped out of Sunday’s finale. NU is now 30-16 on the season, including 12-6 in the Big Ten. Minnesota is 21-21 with a league record of 7-11.

Illinois leads the league 13-5.

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 the 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 RBI 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 narrowly missed 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.
