Husker BaseballTeam Wins 14th Straight

via OWH, Husker Dan Jennings threw a complete game gem to defreat Arkansas 6-1, spoiling the return of former Husker Coach Dave Van Horn. Jennings allowed only one baserunner past second base after the3 sewcond inning. Jennings struck out 7 and walked only two to earn his second victory of the year and third of his Husker career.

"On Tuesday, a crowd of 3,417 applauded Van Horn upon his first trip back with the Razorbacks and then sat back to watch his ex-assistant, Anderson, coach Nebraska to its 14th straight victory.

The winning streak is the longest in Anderson's six years and one away from the most consecutive victories at Nebraska under Van Horn, 15 games, in 2000. Anderson, despite the win, said he'd still prefer not to coach against old boss.

"It's good competition, obviously," he said. "We wouldn't do it unless I thought it was good for Nebraska baseball. But I know Dave very well. This crowd is here. This stadium's here. We're having success because of the things Dave Van Horn did.
I hope he has some emotion that way and feels the pride. It's something that he orchestrated."

NU's left fielder Nick Sullivan unlocked a 1-1 tie with a 2 run shot in the bottom of the second, and NU catcher Mitch Abeita uncorked a 3 run blast in the bottom of the 8th to seal the deal.
