Huskers drop series finale
to 14th-ranked Hoosiers

Lincoln, Neb. — With sole possession of second place in the Big Ten Conference up for grabs, Nebraska was unable to deliver a win Monday afternoon at Hawks Field, as No. 14 Indiana took the three-game series with a 10-2 victory.

After the teams split the first two games of the series, Indiana got a strong outing from starter Aaron Slegers and four RBIs from Dustin DeMuth.

With no midweek game this week, the Huskers continue Big Ten play next weekend with a three-game set in Minneapolis against Minnesota, which sits atop the Big Ten standings.
The series opens at Siebert Field on Friday at 3:05 p.m., continues Saturday at 2:05 p.m. and concludes Sunday at 1:05 p.m.

The Huskers (21-25, 12-6 Big Ten) now sit third in the Big Ten standings, behind Minnesota and Indiana 36-9, 13-5 Big Ten), and could fall to fourth pending the outcome of Monday afternoon's game between Ohio State and Northwestern.

Nebraska starter Aaron Bummer was never able to find a groove on the mound, as the lefty lasted just 4.0 innings, giving up three runs on just three hits, but was his own worst enemy with five walks. Slegers went 8.1 innings for the Hoosiers, allowing a pair of runs on five hits and no walks, while striking out three.

The bottom of Indiana's lineup did the most damage, as its 6-7-8 hitters each had two hits, going a combined 6-for-11 with seven RBIs. DeMuth, Indiana's six hitter, hit IU's fifth home run of the weekend in the fifth innings with a three-run blast and added a RBI double in the ninth.

For the Huskers, Chad Christensen led the way with a 2-for-4 day at the plate and a run scored. The senior outfielder feasted on Indiana pitching, as he was 7-for-11 (.636) during the three-game series with a pair of doubles.
