Cam Chick's solo home run in the top of the seventh inning was the difference as the White team beat the Red 1-0 in Game 2 of Nebraska baseball's Red-White series Tuesday at Haymarket Park.

The White team's win evened the series at one game apiece, with the final seven-inning game scheduled for 3:30 p.m. Wednesday. Admission is free, with gates opening one hour prior to first pitch.

The teams combined for just six hits Tuesday, the White finishing with four, and the Red with two. One of the Red's two hits came in the bottom of the seventh and final inning, when Max Anderson led off with a double and advanced to third on a wild pitch before a double play ended the scrimmage.

Nebraska's pitchers combined to strike out 22 batters Tuesday, with Texas A&M transfer Mason Ornelas getting seven Ks in his first appearance in a Husker uniform for the Red team. Braxton Bragg struck out six. Freshman Jaxon Jelkin struck out three in 1 2/3 innings of relief.

The only hits allowed by Ornelas were a pair of two-out singles in the fourth inning, from Matt Guthmiller and Tyler Palmer. Guthmiller finished the day 2-for-3, the only Husker with more than one hit.
