Nebraska (10-7) let a 5-0 lead after the top of the third slip away as K-State hit two, three-run homers in a non-conference ruled loss to Kansas State (11-5) by a score of 6-5 on Wednesday night in Manhattan, Kan.
The Wildcats cashed in on three-run homers from Mike Kindel and Kent Urban to account for all their offense.
Nebraska scored four runs on four hits in the third inning to take a 5-0 lead, which was capped by Cody Asche’s opposite field home run to left, marking the second straight game the junior has homered.
“It’s pretty disappointing,” head coach Mike Anderson said. “That one will haunt one a little bit because we had a 5-0 lead on the road. We played well defensively and it was really two pitches that hurt us, but it was a walk and hit by pitch that got us in trouble. I told our club I was not pleased with our offense. We had too many strikeouts.”
