The Nebraska baseball team opened a west coast swing with a loss at Cal State-Bakersfield. The Roadrunners scored four runs in the bottom of the eighth inning to rally for an 8-6 victory.
All eight Bakersfield runs scored with two outs. There were two outs in the bottom of the eighth and the bases were empty when the Roadrunners exploded for four runs on four hits and two walks. Bakersfield had seven players come to the plate during the two-out rally.
The loss overshadowed a solid night from the Nebraska offense that produced 13 hits, including multi-hit game from each of Nebraska’s first four hitters. Jake Meyers and Scott Schreiber each had three-hit games.
It was also the first time in ten opportunities the Huskers to close out a win when taking the lead into the eighth inning.
The Huskers (9-9) have today off before opening a four-game series at Cal-Poly Thursday night.
