Kale Kiser homered for the second game in a row and Chad Christensen and Austin Darby picked up two hits each as the Nebraska baseball beat visiting Nebraska-Kearney 4-1. Pitcher Ryan Hander picked up his second win of the season as NU improves to 8-4.
Hander went three innings of one hit baseball and one strikeout in relief of NU starter Dexter Spitsnogle, who gave up no runs on two hits over three innings in his first career start at NU. Freshmen Jeff Stovall and Aaron Bummer pitched the seventh and eighth innings for the Huskers, before Luke Bublitz picked up his first career save with a perfect ninth inning.
The Lopers scored their lone run in the top of the seventh starting with a two-out double from Chase Saxton.
The Huskers will host World Series qualifier Cal this weekend.
