Josh Scheffert found his swing.
"I guess if you drive in 10 runs that is pretty good," head coach Darin Erstad said.
"He is hot right now, " added Kale Kiser. "Scheff is swinging the bat well. He is seeing the ball and not making many mistakes. If pitchers make mistakes he is taking advantage of them and in a pretty good way too."
After a solid Freshman season, Scheffert struggles last year hitting just .220. This year the Lincoln Southeast product is back on track, hitting .380 and leading Nebraska with seven home runs.
"I don't really have a whole lot to say about last year," Scheffert said. "It was something that happened, it needed to happen. I am just trying to stay with an approach play within myself and try to put good swings on the ball, have good at bats consistently. That is what is backing the success right now."
Scheffert adds that the biggest reason for his turnaround is not what he is doing in the batters box, but what is happening off the field.
"Video analysis is a huge thing that I have been looking at lately in the past couple months. I am trying to correct a few things here and there that I want to change or that I think can help me produce more hits," Scheffert said.
If the Big Ten player of the week keeps hitting like he is, the Huskers could be on the way to their first NCAA Regional since 2008.
