Game 5-Nebraska vs. Eastern Michigan
Post-Game Quotes
Nebraska Coach Mike Anderson
Opening Statement
“I’m proud of our kids and the way they came out and played tonight. To be honest with you, the first couple innings went the way I thought it was going to go. I thought we would struggle a little bit and at some point get ourselves going, and we did. Obviously, it was a big blow by Curtis (Ledbetter) to get things started and a lot of good things happened for us offensively. We realized Eastern Michigan was probably out of pitching.”

“Probably first and foremost out of everything, Zach Kroenke threw a large number of pitches. We approached it to get a big lead so we didn’t have to go to the bullpen. It was extremely important to us not to go to the bullpen, so it was a great, great job out of Zach to do that job for us.”

Designated Hitter Curtis Ledbetter
On third inning grand slam
“It is a situation every hitter dreams of being in every day. What more can you ask for to help the team than to come up with the bases loaded and get a hit. Some guys may look at it as pressure, but that is all you are looking for is runners on base and driving them in. That probably got us going a little bit and everyone else just started rolling.”

On task of winning two games Sunday
“We can do it. If we come out and swing the bats like we have a couple games this weekend we’re going to score some runs and our pitching has always been there.”

Eastern Michigan Coach Roger Coryell
“First of all, I would like to thank the city of Lincoln and the host school-Nebraska-for being such cordial hosts. They’ve been very gracious. If we didn’t have to play Nebraska every day we might have been in good shape. We just ran out of pitching tonight.”

“I give a lot of credit to Nebraska. They came out with a vengeance after the loss to Southwest Missouri and showed everyone here that they are a quality team. Coach Anderson had them ready to play tonight.”
