Bluejays Shock Huskers With Ninth Inning Rally
In college baseball, Creighton rallied for three runs in the bottom of the ninth to stun Nebraska 6-5 last night.
The Bluejays only had two singles in their decisive last at-bat, but benefited from a sacrifice bunt, a batter hit by a pitch, a sacrifice fly and two wild pitches. The second wild pitch allowed Nolan Clifford to score the winning run.
The victory upped the Jays’ record to 8-7 and gave CU its seventh win in the last eight meetings against NU. The Huskers fell to 11-7-1.
Creighton will host Minnesota in a pair of games Friday and Saturday. Nebraska opens Big Ten play by entertaining Illinois in a three-game set this weekend.
