This weekend the Huskers posted one of the greatest come-from-behind victories in Nebraska baseball history. With the victory and another in the second game the 5th ranked Huskers pulled closer to first place in the Big 12.
In game one, Nebraska erased an 8-4 deficit by scoring five runs in the bottom of the ninth. On an emotional day where senior day and parents’ day were combined due to Saturday’s rainout, senior Mitch Abeita delivered the game-winning hit, singling up the middle on a 1-2 pitch to score Bryce Nimmo from second and end A&M’s conference-record Big 12 winning streak at 16 games.
They also pulled out the second game of the double-header to take the series from the conference leading Texas A&M Aggies. Go Huskers!

Update: With the Huskers defeating Creighton 8 – 1 tonight and a conference leading Texas A&M loss to Texas-Arlington, Nebraska is just a half game from 1st place. Woo Hoo!!
