Darin Erstad pleased with Huskers start to season

Darin Erstad liked what he saw from Nebraska to open up the season. 

The Huskers went 3-1 at UC-Riverside over the weekend.

“I had a feeling this team would be a good fighting team and they showed that,” Erstad said Tuesday afternoon. “A roller coaster of emotions a lot of guys were going through, but it’s expected. We got guys who haven’t pitched in a long time and some guys who’ve never played at the college level.

“There’s going to be that roller coaster of emotions. But going on the road first series winning three out of four we’ll take that. We didn’t hit any home runs but that’s okay we’re on base. Even in the loss I think we left 15 on base. Starting to feed off each other so those are good things to start off with.”

Nebraska takes on Oregon State in a four-game series Thursday-Sunday this weekend.
