The Nebraska baseball team used a pair of huge home runs to beat Indiana Friday night in its Big Ten opener, 7-3, in Bloomington. 


Ben Miller's bomb in the top of the 4th, which landed past a 408 ft. sign, tied the game at one. Then with the Huskers clinging to a one run lead in the 8th, Luis Alvarado hit a three-run shot that put the game away for Nebraska.


Jake Hohensee threw a career-high 7.1 innings and tied a career high five strikeouts. The Lincoln East alum didn't allow a walk all night. 



NU improved to 14-10 on the season and 1-0 in the conference.


Game two between the Huskers & Hoosiers is set for 1:05 p.m. Central Saturday and will be video streamed live on BTN Plus.
