After Penn State sweep, Huskers look to continue hot streak into busy stretch of games

April 16, 2019

Stout pitching led Nebraska to three baseball wins at Penn State.

The Huskers have little time to catch their breath. They begin a five-game week Tuesday when Kansas State visits Haymarket Park. First pitch is set for 6:30 p.m.

NU will play Omaha at Werner Park on Wednesday before diving back into Big Ten play at Iowa on Friday.

Nebraska (20-10) checks in at No. 30 in the Collegiate Baseball Top 25 poll. More importantly, the Huskers sit at 37th in the RPI rankings, up 12 spots from a week ago.

Nebraska won 7-0 at Kansas State on April 2. Freshman Kyle Perry threw seven shutout innings in the win.

Kansas State (16-21) is 4-4 since that loss, but the Wildcats are coming off their biggest series win of the season. The Wildcats took two of three from then-No. 14 Texas over the weekend.

K-State will start right-hander Caleb Littlejim against the Huskers. NU did not announce a starter for Tuesday’s game.

Omaha enters Wednesday’s contest against the Huskers at 21-9-1, including 13-2 in Summit League play.
