UNO catcher Colby McCord has started every game this season for the UNO baseball team (27-12, 23-11 MIAA). The junior is batting .336 with four home runs and a team-best 34 RBIs. The Papillion native hit three home runs and drove in 11 runs in last Friday's sweep of Fort Hays State.
The UNO baseball team was back in Omaha Tuesday to take on in-state rival Nebraska-Kearney. Seven Maverick pitchers took the mound, scattering six hits and keeping the Lopers off the scoreboard in a 5-0 victory.
When the UNO baseball team went to Pullman, Wash. last weekend, the plan was to play baseball. Eventually that happened, but it came after four days, a snow delay and two doubleheaders.
