The UNO baseball team earned their second win of the year in the first game of a three-game set at Seattle. The Mavs dropped the next two in a doubleheader and returned from a road trip to Washington 2-9 on the year.
Just because the UNO baseball team is the new team on the block doesn't mean they intend on easing their way into Division I baseball. In their second official year as a D-1 baseball team, and first as a full-time Summit League member, Head Coach Bob Herold wants to dive right in, especially when it comes to scheduling.
Last weekend at No. 1 Emporia State, the UNO baseball team was able to earn a series split, handing the Hornets their second and third losses of the season. The losses dropped Emporia out of the top spot in the MIAA standings and set up another big weekend series against a Central Missouri team ranked just ahead of the Mavs.
The UNO baseball team clawed its way through the losers' bracket but fell two wins shy of the MIAA tournament championship held May 12 through 15. After an opening round win in Kansas City, the Mavs dropped their next game to Emporia State, then rebounded for two more wins before losing to eventual champion Central Missouri.
