Huskers swept by Wichita State

WICHITA, Kan. — Asea Webber hit a grand slam in the bottom of the sixth inning, completing Wichita State’s doubleheader sweep over Nebraska on Sunday.

The Shockers won the opener 6-2 before rallying for a 7-5 win.

Nebraska never trailed in the nightcap until the sixth.

The Huskers got a two-run home run from Tristen Edwards in the third and it went up 5-3 on Lindsey Walljasper’s solo homer in the top of the sixth. But with two outs in the bottom of the frame, Webber put the Shockers up with a shot off of Walljasper.

In the opener, Nebraska was no-hit for the first time since 2012. The Huskers still managed to lead 2-0 as the first two batters walked, stole a base and scored on sacrifice flies. Reliever Erin McDonald entered after the first two batters and pitched seven hitless innings.

Nebraska next will play in a tournament in Lawrence, Kansas, beginning Saturday.
