A pair of Husker baseball players earned weekly awards from the Big Ten. Ben Miller was tabbed Monday as the league’s player of the week, while Matt Waldron earned co-pitcher and freshman honors.
Miller helped Nebraska take two of three games from Penn State by going 7-for-14 with two doubles, six RBI and four runs scored. He also had two hits and two RBI in a mid-week win over UNO.
Waldron tossed a complete game shutout on Saturday in a 6-0 win over the Nittany Lions. He allowed just four hits and posted a career-high six strikeouts.
