Freshmen Tom Lemke picked up his team leading fourth win for the Nebraska baseball as he tossed a complete-game three-hit shutout, while getting plenty of offensive support in a 10-0 win over No. 12 Oklahoma Sunday afternoon at Hawks Field.
Lemke struck out a career-high eight hitters in a game shortened to seven innings because of the Big 12 run-rule. He established career bests in both innings and strikeouts, as he allowed one run or less for the fourth time in his six starts. OU’s three hits were a season low and marked the first time it had been shutout this season.
Tyler Farst, Adam Bailey and Chad Christensen all homered for NU. Bailey’s was his 8th homer of the year and drove in three runs while Chad Christensen had two hits, including his third homer of the year, in his first career start at shortstop.
The Huskers were able to salvage one game of this series after dropping the first two by scores of 10-2 on Friday and 4-1 on Saturday. NU will wrap up this seven-game homestand with a pair of games against North Dakota Tuesday night at 6:35 p.m. and Wednesday afternoon at 1:35 p.m.
