CU Uses Small-Ball to Win

Creighton executed small-ball to perfection by manufacturing six runs to beat South Dakota State 8-5 Wednesday night.

The Bluejays eight runs came on three sacrifice flies, two hits, an error, a fielder’s choice and a groundout.

Nick Highberger was dominant in relief as he held the Jackrabbits scoreless over the final 3.2 innings to improve to 5-1.

CU is back in action Friday night when the Jays visit Seton Hall.
