Nebraska swept a road series against Big Ten foe Ohio State last weekend. The Huskers scored a run in the first and second innings in the series opener and never gave up the lead, as Nebraska held on for a 5-3 win on Friday night. The Big Red clinched the series with a 10-5 victory on Saturday, led by Griffin Everitt’s two-run homer, while Nick Wimmers was 2-for-3 with a double and a run in his first start at Nebraska and Max Anderson had a grand slam. The Huskers scored a season-high total of runs in a 17-5 rout at Ohio State on Sunday afternoon. Cam Chick was a perfect 2-for-2 at the plate with five walks and team-high four runs. Chick’s five walks ties a school record, joining Jim Bailey (vs. Chicago State, March 16, 1999) and Tom Novak (vs. Denver College, April 18, 1949) in the record books. Luke Sartori went 2-for-4 with a grand slam, four RBI and three runs on the day. Sartori’s grand slam in the top of the ninth gave Nebraska a grand slam in back-to-back games for the first time since Kash Kalkowksi and Kale Kiser vs. Washington and Missouri State on Feb. 19-20, 2011.

4/1: Nebraska 5, Ohio State 3
