Bats come up big as Nebraska gains a split with Razorbacks

The Nebraska baseball team (16-13, 1-2 Big Ten) came up with timely hits to give the Huskers a 6-4 victory over the Arkansas Razorbacks on Wednesday afternoon at Baum Stadium to split a two-game series.
 
Austin Darby, Ryan Boldt and Ben Miller all had two-hits. Junior Kyle Kubat picked up the win for the Huskers, going 5.2 innings, while giving up four earned runs on eight hits while striking out four and walking three. Josh Roeder picked up his fifth save of the season, pitching the ninth inning with one hit given up and a strikeout.
 
The Huskers went 5-for-12 with runners in scoring position, including 3-for-3 with runners on third and less than two outs, while Arkansas could only muster one hit in eight attempts with runners in scoring position. 
The Huskers return to Big Ten play this weekend when they host the Ohio State Buckeyes for a three-game series at Hawks Field, with NU’s conference home opener set for 6:35 p.m. on Friday night.
