HUNTSVILLE, Texas (KBTX) - It was a near textbook performance on Opening Night for the Sam Houston baseball team on Friday night as it picked up an 8-5 win over Nebraska at Don Sanders Stadium.

The Kats’ (1-0) pitching staff punched out 15 Cornhuskers (0-1) in the game, including eight from starting pitcher Matt Dillard who went 5.0 innings before leaving with the lead. He took a no-decision, but Cole Wesneski picked up the win in relief after a 3-run seventh inning proved to be the difference.
