The Husker baseball team overcame a 10-0 deficit yesterday to rally for an 11-10 win over North Dakota, a team that came into Lincoln with a 1-12 record. The Huskers hit four home runs in the game.
Adam Bailey who homered earlier in the game doubled in the tying run in the bottom of the ninth, scoring Khiry Cooper and then, Tyler Farst who left five runners stranded earlier in the game, singled in the game winner for NU’s biggest comeback in the last 10 seasons.
Reliever Chase Adams was the winner as he went 5.2 innings holding North Dakota off the board after they jumped to their 10 run lead in the first three innings. Adams struck out four and didn’t allow a runner to reach scoring position over the final four innings.
The Huskers used the long balll to get back into the game. In addition to Bailey’s ninth homer of the season, NU got a two-run shot by pinch hitter Cade Thompson and an eighth-inning grand slam from Cody Asche to pull the Huskers within 10-9. Chad Christensen also homered and drove in two runs, as NU totaled 13 hits on the night.
Game two of the series is this afternoon.
