LINCOLN, Neb. (KMTV) — Nebraska starter Cade Povich pitched a gem & the bullpen backed him up as the Huskers shut out Michigan on Friday at Haymarket Park, 1-0. The Bellevue West alum went seven scoreless innings striking out nine including an immaculate inning in the first when the southpaw threw nine pitches for nine strikes.
NU scored its lone run in the bottom of the 6th on a Luke Roskam RBI single that scored Spencer Schwellenbach.
