Joba Chamberlain didn't pitch like his usual dominant self. A costly error also hurt the Huskers' cause as they dropped the first of a three game series to Oklahoma, 5-1 on Thursday night.
Chamberlain (6-1) went 6.2 innings giving up six hits, five runs although only two of those were earned in his first defeat as a Husker. The Big Red bats only managed six hits of their own on the night as Joe Simokaitis went 2 for 4 to lead Nebraska in the losing effort.
Oklahoma pitcher Daniel McCutchen deserved a lot of the credit for silencing the Huskers as he pitched a complete game for the Sooners.
Nebraska (35-9, 10-6) and Oklahoma (23-18, 7-9) meet up again tomorrow in Norman. First pitch is set for 6 P-M.
