The 13th-ranked Nebraska softball team scored runs in each of the final four innings to rally from an early one-run deficit and post a 7-1 victory over Kansas on a windy Sunday afternoon at Arrocha Ballpark.
The win completed a two-game sweep for the Huskers, who improved to 30-4 on the season and 3-1 in Big 12 Conference play. Nebraska reached 30 wins faster than any other team in school history, while matching its win total from all of last season (30-29) and recording 30 wins for the 13th time in the past 14 seasons.
Freshman Tatum Edwards and sophomore Brooke Thomason each homered for the second straight game to pace Nebraska’s 12-hit attack. NU trailed 1-0 early, before Tatum Edwards hit her 10th home run of the season, a solo shot in the top of the fourth inning. Tatum Edward’s home run not only opened the scoring for the Huskers, but it also highlighted a 4-for-4 day for the freshman. Edwards recorded a career high in hits and added a double, two RBIs and three runs scored.
