Huskers Drop Series Opener at Illinois

The Nebraska baseball team dropped the series opener at Illinois, falling 5-2 last night.  The loss has the Huskers on the edge of elimination from next week’s Big Ten tournament.

NU is now 23-27, including a 7-13 conference mark.  To make next week’s conference tourney in Omaha, the Huskers need to win the next two games at Illinois and have Maryland and Michigan State lose their final two contests.

First pitch for Nebraska’s game today is set for 6 p.m.  The pre-game show starts at 5:30 on News Talk 900 KJSK.
