The Huskers wasted no time on Saturday night in Oklahoma City, as Aaron Palensky launched a three-run homer in the bottom of the first inning to give Nebraska a lead over Oklahoma State.
You can watch the home run here:
The first inning couldn't have gone better for Nebraska, as Jaxon Hallmark and Cam Chick laced back-to-back singles to start the game. Palensky then loaded up on a fastball down the middle for the deep fly to left field.
Matt Waldron escaped a jam in the top of the first. The NU starter loaded the bases with just one out in the inning, but managed to strike out one and force a fly out to end the inning.
