Jake Meyers allowed one run over seven frames, while Scott Schreiber , Ben Miller and Jake Schleppenbach drove in three runs apiece, as Nebraska jumped out to a 10-run lead and held on to take the rubber game of the series with a 11-9 victory over Ohio State Sunday afternoon.
Meyers picked up his team-leading seventh win, scattering six hits and fanned four, as the junior left-hander was in control most of the afternoon against the Buckeyes. The junior southpaw, who improved to 7-1 on the season, also helped his own cause by scoring twice in the first two innings, as Nebraska raced out to an early 5-0 lead.
Nebraska (26-16-1, 9-5-1 Big Ten) was opportunistic against a Buckeye staff that walked seven and hit five on Sunday, while many of the Huskers’ 11 hits came at opportune times.
Nebraska led 11-1 entering the bottom of the eighth, but the Buckeyes fought back against the Husker bullpen, putting up eight runs and getting the tying run to the plate against relievers Nate Fisher and Chad Luensmann .
