The Nebraska Cornhuskers baseball team tried to erase the stink of a Tuesday night loss to Omaha by playing a set of “home games” in Manhattan, Kansas against Nicholls. Despite moving the games out of Nebraska because of inclimate weather, it turns out things weren’t great in the Sunflower State either.

That lead to Thursday’s game being postponed and rescheduled for Friday. Once the Nebraska Cornhuskers got to actually get on the field gain, they showed they could still be a contender for one of the better teams in the Big Ten, if they can find some consistency.

The Nebraska baseball team won the first game of that double-header 2-1 in a 7-inning shortened game. They then put an exclamation point on the day with a 17-1 victory. Now the Huskers will try to finish off the weird sweep with a Sunday afternoon game at 2pm.
