NU softball dominates with a weekend shut out at Michigan State running win streak to 10

A dominating weekend for the 19th ranked NU softball team who ran their winning streak to 10 games. They shut out Michigan State…the entire weekend.

The Huskers have outscored their conference foes by a combined 78-4 margin in three-game sweeps the past three weekends over Iowa, Ohio State and Michigan State. Five of those nine victories have been run-rule wins for the Huskers.

Senior Tatum Edwards was the star on Sunday. She fired a two-hit shutout to stretch Nebraska’s scoreless streak to 35.0 consecutive innings. Edwards (19-9) added seven strikeouts to reach 500 in her career, while she tossed her third straight shutout and seventh of the year. Offensively, Edwards blasted a three-run homer for her 11th home run of the season, finishing 3-for-4 with three RBIs and two runs scored.
