Nebraska (19-25) vs. Minnesota (12-31) Game Thread

The 8th inning is why we are so bad.  Our SS boots the easiest ground ball ever.  Then, we have the runner picked off 1st with runners at 1st and 2nd.  Everitt throws the ball to Lincoln.  Allows both runs to score.  He could have rolled it to Gomes at 1st and we still could have gotten the runner.

 

In the top half of the inning, we get a gift with Minnesota loading the bases on 2 walks and a HBP with 1 out.  The next two batters strike out.  All you have to do is make contact, but we do what we do best and strike out.

 

Now, we allow Minnesota to tie it in the 9th when the game should be over.  And, the Minnesota pitcher has not allowed us to do anything.

We absolutely have to win tomorrow, take one from Illinois, and take the series from MSU to have a chance.

 

I predicted the rest of the season.  Here's what I have for everyone if everything plays out

 

1. Rutgers 18 - 6 (2 - 1 vs Mary and 1 - 2 vs Mich)                                

2 tie Maryland 16 - 8 (1 - 2 vs. Rut 2 - 1 vs Mich 2 - 1 vs Pur)

2 tie Illinois 16 - 8 (2 - 1 vs Neb 2 - 1 vs PSU)

2 tie Iowa 16 - 8 (1 - 0 vs. Pur 2- 1 vs. MSU 2 - 1 vs Ind) 

5 Michigan 14 - 10 (1 - 0 vs Ind 1 - 2 vs Mary 2 - 1 vs Rut)

6 Penn State 12 - 12 (2 - 1 vs MSU 2 - 1 vs OSU 1 - 2 vs Ill)

7 Nebraska 11 - 13 (1 - 0 vs Minn 1 - 2 vs Ill 2 - 1 vs MSU)

8 Purdue 10 - 12 (0 - 1 vs Iowa 2 - 1 vs NW 1 - 2 vs Mary)

9 tie Indiana 10 - 14 (0 - 1 vs Mich 2 - 1 vs Minn 1 - 2 vs Iowa)

9 tie Northwestern 10 - 14 (0 - 1 vs OSU 1 - 2 vs Pur 2 - 1 vs Minn)

11 Michigan State 9 - 15 (1 - 2 vs PSU 1 - 2 vs Iowa 1 - 2 vs Neb)

12 Ohio State 7 - 15 (1 - 0 vs NW 1 - 2 vs PSU)

13 Minnesota 5 - 19 (0 - 1 vs Neb 1 - 2 vs Ind 1 - 2 vs Minn)

 

I think 12 wins gets us in.  We have to win the Illinois series or sweep MSU.  I could see Indiana sweeping Minnesota.  That gets them to 11 wins, they hold tiebreaker.  Northwestern could sweep Minnesota possible.  Gets them to 11 wins.  Good news they play Purdue, so if they win series.  It would move Purdue to 9 wins.

I have us 5 - 10 in one run games.  Switch that around and get us 10 - 5 and we are 24 - 20.  In Big 10 play we are 0 - 4.  Turn that around to 4 - 0 and we are 11 - 6.  It's fundamental baseball.  Make contact with the bases loaded and 1 out.  Don't throw the ball 300 feet when you need to make a 60 foot throw.  This point of the year, the excuse of youth does not work.
