Creighton Walks Away With Victory, 4-3

Brett Murray hits walk-off single in ninth inning

Nebraska dropped a close contest to Creighton Tuesday night 4-3, falling on a walk-off single by Brett Murray. Nebraska falls to 22-11 on the season while Creighton improves to 21-7 on the season. The Creighton win breaks a streak of seven straight wins by the Huskers in the series against the Bluejays.

Nebraska and Creighton would each receive solid pitching performances from their starters. Derek Burkamper would give up one run in five innings of work. Burkamper would receive an early lead thanks to Jake Meyers doubling in the second and scoring on a Luis Alvarado single.

Creighton would answer in the fourth scoring a single run on a triple and a sacrifice fly to even the score. Creighton starter Austin Stroschein would get Creighton into the fifth inning before walking two Huskers, bringing in Connor Miller who would give up a go ahead single to Steven Reveles.

Creighton would answer with two runs in the sixth off of Reece Eddins, before Jeff Chestnut would come in and end their rally with a double play. The Huskers would tie the game thanks to Meyers triple in the seventh.

Neither team would get a runner past second base until Creighton in the ninth when Reagan Fowler doubled down the left field line. Fowler would score on Murray's single, sending the Huskers to their first losing streak since eight weeks ago.

Nebraska is back in action Friday night as they travel to Michigan for a key series against the Wolverines. First pitch is scheduled for 5:00.
