3rd straight conference loss after starting out the B1G season on a roll. Frustrating and disappointing loss that were similar to the 2 in Indiana. Gophers didn't have much luck tonight lots of hard hit balls right at Nebraska players, 4-5 balls that looked like they were gonna be gone die at the wall for outs, and every close strike/ball call seemed to go Nebraska's way. Nebraska kind of stole a run in the 1st with a lead off single from Meyers who had 4 of Nebraska's 8 hits followed by the runner stealing 2nd and 3rd with a strikeout in between there and then a sac fly to score the run. Gophers answered in the 2nd scoring a run on a leadoff double followed by a couple groundouts. The Gophers took the lead in the 4th with a single from Ben Mezzenga followed by an absolute shot by Terrin Vavra for a 2 run homerun. I really thought that was all the Gophers would need with the way Lucas Gilbreath was pitching but after a strikeout started the inning Nebraska got a double in the 5th followed by a walk where Gilbreath had the batter 0-2 and looked to strike him out a couple times and a 2-2 hit by pitch. Nebraska would get a single to score 2 as the 2nd runner was called safe on a very close play at the plate. Things stayed the same until the 8th when Nebraska got a leadoff single again by Meyers followed by a sac bunt and error on the throw to set up 1st and 3rd and nobody out. Tyler Hanson got a popup for the 1st out and then the Gophers went to Brian Glowicki. Glowicki got a groundball just out of the reach of Vavra so it was a run scoring single instead of a double play. Nebraska would get another single to score another run before Glowicki got out of the inning. Lucas Gilbreath went 6 innings giving up 3 runs on 3 hits walking 2 and striking out 7. Tyler Hanson went 1.1 innings and gave up 2 runs on 2 hits while striking out 2. Brian Glowicki went 2/3 of an inning and gave up 2 hits while striking out 1. Tim Shannon went 1 inning and gave up a hit. Offensively Terrin Vavra had 2 hits one of them being the homerun. Ben Mezzenga came in for Alex Boxwell after his 1st at bat so thinking Boxwell tweaked something again. Mezzenga was 2-3 with a ground ruled double that would have been a triple easy if it stayed in play. Gophers need to stop the skid tomorrow and find a way to take this very important series with wins Saturday and Sunday.
