Walsh Tosses Gem, Matthews Blasts Tie-Breaking Homer in Win

Will Walsh pitched a gem and Brice Matthews belted a three-run homer to lead Nebraska baseball to a 4-1 home win over North Dakota State last night. 

Walsh recorded a career-high 11 strikeouts in seven innings.  Matthews crushed a 424-foot home run to left field to break a 1-all tie in the bottom of the seventh. 

The win was NU’s 400th victory at Haymarket Park, the Huskers’ home ballpark since 2002.  Nebraska is 14-8-1 on the season.
