Big Ten Tournament, Illinois rallied to beat Nebraska 3-2.  The Huskers broke a scoreless tie in the top of the sixth with two runs on four straight hits, including back-to-back doubles from Tanner Lubach and Luis Alvarado. The Illini rallied in the bottom of the sixth with three singles and sac fly.  A bases loaded single in the bottom of the eighth put Illinois on top.  For Illinois, it’s their 27th win in a row that’s a Big Ten record.  Texas and Florida hold the NCAA record of 34.

Two-time All-Big Ten pitcher Chance Sinclair made his 31st career start on Wednesday night and gave the Huskers 5.2 strong innings, as he allowed two runs on four hits and two walks, while striking out four. Sinclair allowed one hit over the first five innings, with three of Illinois’ four hits off of Sinclair coming in the sixth.
