Nebraska scored four runs in the first two innings and earned a 5-4 victory at Wichita State on Tuesday night wrapping up a four-game, six-day road swing for the Huskers.
Kash Kalkowski hit a two-run homer to left field in the top of the first and starter Tyler Niederklein improved to 5-1 by giving up three runs in six innings before Casey Hauptman earned his fourth save of the season.
Niederklein gave up his three runs on seven hits and left with a 4-3 lead before Dylan Vogt threw 1.1 scoreless innings of no-hit relief. Hauptman came on in the eighth and allowed one run on two hits in 1.2 innings. The Shockers scored one run in the ninth and had the tying run in scoring position before Hauptman struck out Preston Springer to end the game.
The Huskers are home this weekend against Kansas State.
