Iowa 2, Nebraska 1
A two-run ninth-inning rally lifted the University of Iowa baseball team to a 2-1 victory over Nebraska in its Big Ten and home opener Friday afternoon at Duane Banks Field. After trailing 1-0 heading into the bottom of the ninth, the Hawkeyes broke through in their final at-bat against Husker closer Josh Roeder. Sophomore Tyler Peyton started the rally with a one-out walk before senior Taylor Zeutenhorst laced a single to right field to put runners on the corners. Junior pinch hitter Taylor Kaufman delivered an opposite field single through the left side to knock in the game-tying run. After a Roeder wild pitch moved runners to second and third, Nebraska intentionally walked junior Kris Goodman to load the bases, bringing senior Trevor Kenyon to the plate with one away. After fouling off three-straight pitches, Kenyon roped the game-winning, RBI single to left field to send the Hawkeyes out 2-1 winners. RECAP

Michigan State 7, Ohio State 6
Ryan Krill's one-out RBI single in the bottom of the ninth inning gave the Michigan State baseball team a 7-6 win over Ohio State in the Big Ten opener on Friday night in Columbus, Ohio. A total of six Spartans had RBIs in the win, which boosted the Spartans' record to 10-8 on the season. With the Spartans leading, 6-4, heading into the top of the ninth, OSU scored two runs with no outs to tie the game. Cam Vieaux then replaced Jake Lowery on the mound for MSU and retired the next three hitters in order to end the threat and strand the go-ahead run at third base. In the bottom of the ninth, Jimmy Pickens hit a one out single and Joel Fisher walked to give MSU a pair of baserunners. Krill then delivered the winning hit with a single into center field. RECAP
