Michael Woodworth went 5-7 to lead a Connecticut offense that collected a season-high 22 hits in a 16-1 elimination game rout of Nebraska yesterday.
The Huskies scored in all but two innings and finished with a seven-run ninth. They avenged an 8-5 loss to Nebraska on Friday. Colby Dunlop allowed five singles and one run in an efficient, career-long eight innings. NU starter Reece Eddins gave up four runs on ten hits in 4 1/3 innings. Angelo Altavilla had two of the Big Red’s five hits. The Huskers, who finish at 32-24, had dropped into the elimination bracket after losing 6-5 to Oklahoma State on Saturday night. Connecticut went on to beat Oklahoma State 5-2 last night to force a winner-take-all game with the Cowboys this evening.
