MLB

The Nebraska baseball team lost a heartbreaker on Friday afternoon to the Minnesota Golden Gophers. The game, a 5-2 loss in the 10th inning not only broke a winning streak, but snapped some serious momentum for the Huskers as they look to prove their the best team in the Big Ten. Several things stood out in the loss.

1

Wasted home run

The Huskers are not a power hitting team. They got their sixth homer of the entire season on Friday. It was also Mojo Hagge's first of the season. It was all for naught in the end.

Waldron growing into his role nicely

He wasn't even in the rotation to start the year. Since taking over the reins of the Friday starter, Waldron has been dominant. On Friday, he went eight innings, allowed seven hits and two runs while striking out eight. He didn't get the win, thanks to a lack of offense, but he showed he truly is the ace of the staff. That's something Erstad has lacked for most of his time here.
