The Husker baseball team is getting ready for Eastern Illinois as they host one of the regionals this weekend. Head coach Mike Anderson may hold off on using All-Big 12 starter Johnny Dorn against 4th seeded Eastern.
Anderson may go with either junior lefty Dan Jennings or junior righty Erik Bird. This could be a good strategy, Eastern Illinois is just 27-28, the lowest seeded team in post-season play. The thinking being that Dorn could be saved for later on in the regional whether it’s against UC-Irvine, the number two seed or Oral Roberts, the third seed. The first pitch for Eastern and Nebraska is 1pm on Friday.
