The Nebraska Huskers faced a tough loss against the No. 23 Maryland Terrapins on Sunday afternoon in College Park, Md.
Despite a strong start in the second inning, where the Huskers recorded two runs on three hits, they struggled to keep up with the Terrapins’ offense, eventually falling 20-5.
Max Anderson was a standout player for the Huskers, slugging his 36th career home run and moving into a tie for eighth all-time in program history. He went 2-for-4 with a double, home run, two RBI, and a run scored. Charlie Fischer also had a good day at the plate, going 2-for-5 with a pair of singles and a run.
The Huskers used several pitchers throughout the game, with Will Walsh starting and pitching 2.1 innings, allowing three runs on four hits with a strikeout. Jake Bunz and Brett Sears teamed up to surrender seven runs on six hits with two walks and a pair of strikeouts in one inning. Jackson Brockett, Jalen Worthley, Mason Ornelas, and Caleb Clark all made appearances on the mound, with Ornelas allowing just one hit in 0.2 innings and Clark striking out four Terrapins in his 1.2 shutout innings.
The Terrapins’ offense proved to be too much for the Huskers, with Maryland totaling 20 runs on 20 hits. Nick Lorusso had a particularly impressive day at the plate, hitting a two-run shot in the third inning and a grand slam in the sixth inning.
Despite the tough loss, the Huskers will look to bounce back in their upcoming game against Creighton on Tuesday, May 9, in Omaha. The two teams will resume last month’s suspended game at 5 p.m. before playing the series finale scheduled for 7:03 p.m. on CBS Sports Network.
