Nebraska improved to 4-0 in Big Ten series openers with an 11-2 win over Ohio State Friday afternoon at Hawks Field.

Christian DeLeon delivered 8.0 innings on the mound while the Husker bats pounded out 15 hits to bring Nebraska into a tie with Indiana for first place in the Big Ten standings after the Hoosiers fell in 11 innings, 2-1, at Michigan State.

DeLeon improved to 4-2 with his third eight-inning performance of the season. Aside from a pair of solo home runs, DeLeon gave up six hits and no walks while striking out five.

After Buckeye starter Jaron Long (4-3) threw a complete game win against the Huskers last season in Columbus, Nebraska responded by knocking the junior out of the game after 4.1 innings. Nebraska’s bats tagged the right-hander for nine runs (seven earned) on 13 hits, including six runs in the fifth inning on five hits.
