Coach Will Bolt got a look this fall at the Husker baseball team that must replace all four captains from last year's team.
Pitchers having the upper hand was a welcome sight for Bolt, who saw Nebraska's hitters outperform the pitchers for much of the fall.
Will Bolt, in his first full season at NU, has a chance to best his mentor and former coach Dave Van Horn, in getting the Huskers to a super regional. Van Horn did it in his third season at Nebraska. Bolt will try to do it in two.
Bolt on Povich: "(He was) just in complete command of the game. I thought his stuff was good, compete was good, attack was good."
When the Huskers needed someone to come through at the plate last Saturday against Indiana, it was Hellstrom off the bench.
Three runs in the top of the eighth helped Nebraska extend its win streak to seven games.
For the first time since March 11, a University of Nebraska athletic program took part in a competition that was broadcast live.
