It was two and done for the Nebraska baseball team at the Big Ten Tournament. The Huskers managed only three hits in a 6-2 loss to Indiana in an elimination game at TD Ameritrade Park.
“We just did not get it done and that is the bottom line”, said Huskers centerfielder Ryan Boldt. “I felt like we were ready to play but we just did come with a good enough approach to score some runs.”
Indiana took the lead for good in the top of the seventh inning with a pair of runs and Laren Eustace provided the Hoosiers with some insurance as he slammed a two-run homer in the top of the eighth inning. The Huskers scored only three runs in their two games at the tournament.
“This time of the year you are going to face quality pitching”, said Husker coach Darin Erstad. “But we are better than three hits a game.”
The Huskers must wait until Monday to find out if their 37-20 record and second place finish in the Big Ten regular season race is good enough to earn them an at-large bid into the NCAA Tournament.
