This past week has had its high and low moments in the world of sports.

Locally, the University of Nebraska Huskers baseball team capped off a home weekend three-game sweep of Ohio State.

Nebraska earned each victory in come-from-behind fashion at Haymarket Park in Lincoln.

Both Saturdays and Sundays games came with dramatic walk-off wins.

Nebraskas pitchers gave up a total of 20 hits, two earned runs and three walks, while striking out 12 hitters in 27 innings for a 0.67 earned run average.

New York Mets second baseman Daniel Murphy was bashed last week by former NFL football player Boomer Esiason and New York radio WFAN host Mike Francesa for taking three days off for paternity leave to be with his wife in Florida for the birth of their first child.
