Nebraska all–way player Jake Meyers was gunned down stealing for the first time this season, May 10, at Creighton. With it, he caught an injured left hand.

Meyers receiving stitches to the hand he also pitches with, but it didn't stop the junior south paw from taking his usual Sunday spot in the rotation.

"I'm a big body language guy, and you could tell he was processing a lot of stuff out there," said head coach Darin Erstad.

It didn't last long. 2.2 innings, seven hits, and four earned runs. The worst outing of the year for Meyers.

"He was coming to his set position a lot slower, his conviction on his pitches wasn't the same, and rightfully so. He has a big gash in his hand," Erstad says.

Meyers remains day–to–day as his left web continues the healing process.

Nebraska sits in second place in the Big Ten Conference and likely needs all three wins this weekend at Penn State to jump by Minnesota in the standings.

Opening the series Thursday at Happy Valley, 5:35 p.m. CT.
