Nebraska right fielder Austin Darby took to the East Lansing visiting team’s locker room on Sunday a winner. In reality, he was the MVP of the Huskers’ 4-1 victory over the Michigan State Spartans.
Sparty had the opportunity to move men around into scoring position in the bottom of the eighth inning, maybe even tie up the game at four runs a piece.
Instead, designated hitter Blaise Salter belted a blast where Darby was stationed. Words cannot describe the play he made:
No Spartans advanced for extra bases and thanks in large part to Darby, the Big Red clinched the series against the Michigan State Spartans.
The Big Red ideally goes for the sweep today, however weather in the area may delay or cancel the game entirely. If not, it will be available on BTN or BT2Go.
