Lincoln – For the second straight day the #22 Nebraska baseball saw a late-game lead disappear as the Rutgers Scarlet Knights scored five runs over the final three innings on its way to a 6-5 victory. Nebraska has now lost its first series of the season after starting the year with a program-record seven straight series wins.

The Huskers held a slim 3-2 lead after the seventh inning on Friday night before falling, 9-4. In today’s contest Nebraska jumped out to a 5-0 lead after the fourth inning before Rutgers scored the game’s final six runs, including three runs in the seventh on a pair of home runs. The series wraps up Sunday at noon.
