Minnesota Yields Two Gopher Balls to NU’s Cox

Christian Cox hit a pair of home runs to lead number-23 Nebraska to a 12-3 win over Minnesota Sunday at Haymarket Park.

Cox became the first Husker to hit two homers in a game since Cody Asche blasted a pair against Baylor on April 30, 2011.

NU took the final two games of the series by a combined score of 19-7 after being shutout, 3-0, in the series opener.  The Huskers are now 26-11 on the season and 5-4 in the Big Ten.

Nebraska is back in action Tuesday night at TD Ameritrade Park in Omaha for a 7:05 p.m. game against Creighton.  The pre-game show begins at 6:30 p.m. on News Talk 900 KJSK.
