NU softball drops finale at Iowa

After splitting a double header on Saturday, the Nebraska softball team let the series finale slip away, losing 6-4 on Sunday. NU rallied from down four, but two errors led to five unearned runs in the loss that dropped the Huskers record to 26-16 overall and 8-4 in conference play.  The Huskers did not have a hit through the first four innings, but strung together four hits in a four-run fourth inning to tie the game.

After tying the game 4-4, pitcher Taylor Edwards walked the leadoff batter in the bottom of the fifth and then hit the next batter. Ashley Hagemann came on in relief and retired the side, but things went bad in the sixth. After retiring two of the first three hitters, a two-out error and a two-out, RBI single gave Iowa a 6-4 lead.
