LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - Four relief pitchers combined to allow 7 runs in the Huskers’ series-opening loss to Rutgers on Friday. Nebraska’s bullpen, which entered the game on a 22-inning scoreless streak, struggled as the Scarlet Knights took control in front of a large, red-clad crowd at Haymarket Park.

Cam Wynne, who allowed three runs, was tagged with the loss.

Nebraska’s offense was led by Jaxon Hallmark. The senior outfielder went 2-for-3 at the plate with a home run and 2 RBI. Joe Acker hit an inside-the-park home run for the Huskers.

Nebraska’s record drops to 20-8, yet the Huskers remain in first place in the Big Ten standings.
