UN Drops to Third.
Bob Cerv's Two Run Homer
Proves Futile as Four NU
Errors Give 'Cats Victory
By Kinmon Karabatsos
(Sports Editor, Daily Nebraskan)
The University of Nebraska's high-riding baseball
team had a little wind taken from their sails Wednesday
afternoon as a determined, hustling crew from Kansas
State took a 7-6 Big Seven victory.
Cerv Connects
Bob Cerv's 375 foot home run
which sailed over the scoreboard
in dead center field with Bob
Grogan aboard was the only
bright spot of the Husker cam
paign. The Weston ace had a perfect
day at the plate, getting four
hits in that many times' at bat.

Nebraska 3 1 .750
Kansas State .... 1 1 .500
Kansas 0 1 .000
Iowa State 0 2 .000
Missouri 0 -2 .000
Cerv's stalwart performance
was overshadowed only by the
excellent relief job done by Kan
sas State's Pine. "Bobo" Pine
shut the Huskers out the last
three innings, not even allow
ing a scratch hit.
Huskers Third
Coach Tony Sharpe's crew
dropped into third place behind
Oklahoma and Colorado. Both
teams were idle.
The four -Nebraska errors
- proved too many miscues as the
life-less Huskers failed to show
their "gas-house" brand of ball
which had carried them to three
consecutive conference victories.
Bob Camp set the Wildcats
down in order the first inning
and it looked as if the Huskers
would come through with an
other victory, but in the sec
ond inning Kansas State pushed
across two' runs.
Nebraska's first inning was just
as dismal as the Aggies. In the
second, Sharpe's crew gained
enough hustle to score once.
K-State padded their lead with
a run in the third and Nebraska
tied it up with two.
Cerv's power packed hit tied
the game and brought the spars
ley settled crowd to their feet in
Cerv accounted for three runs-batted-in,
including his circuit
clout, for half of the Husker
scores. Hays and Novak ac
counted for the other two. Holder
accounted for the other Nebraska
run when he let loose with a
wild pitch that hit the edge of
the plate, bounding into the back
screen. Hays came in from third.
12 Left Oii Base
The Nebraska hitters failed to
connect when the chips were up.
They left 12 runners stranded
on base and their rallies were
always two outs late.
The Wildcats took advantage
of every Husker miscue, getting
at least one run every time Ne
braska bobbled.
Holder got a little wild in the
sixth before he was relieved by
Pine. He hit Mladovich with a
pitched ball and walked two.
Altogether he gave out five
walks. Camp was tabbed for only
two bases on balls.
The Wildcat's scrappy little
catcher gave the crowd plenty
to talk about as he sometimes
let his better judgment get the
better of him.
Pine got credit for the win
and Camp was tabbed for the
Sharpe's next encounter comes
against Luther college of De
corah, Iowa, April 21 and 22.

In his first competitive start
this season, Parker astounded
Border Olympics fans at Lorado
by flashing the 200 in :20.0,
three-tenths of a second under
Jesse Owens' world mark, and
the 100 in :9.4. a second over
Mel Patton's standard at this

favorite for the last three years
for the Kansas show. Yet he
has won only once, in 1948. As
a freshman in 1947, he was up

cause of a pulled muscle which

Perry Samuels, in the South

this way: Paul "No Legs"

Drake; Clarke Rice, Minnesota;
Jerome Biffle; Byron Clark,
Missouri; Marcellus Boston,
Iowa, and Perry Samuels, Tex

menacing. He chased Parker
home at Austin' after winning
the title in 1949. He beat the
powerful Longhorn in 1948 at

Dorm B spotted Spalding Nine
five runs in the first inning and
then slowly overtook that lead

runs in the last two innings were
the big clinchers for the winning
Dorm men. Kornick and Brooks

the winning battery.
Behind the two-hit pitching of
