Junior Emily Lockman tossed a complete game, allowing only three runs against a Minnesota Golden Gophers team that ranks in the top 15 nationally in scoring. It was her seventh complete game of the season as the Huskers took Sunday’s finale 5-3, managing one in this three game weekend series.
Lockman improves to 10-8 on the year as the offense came up in the clutch, coming through with runners in scoring position. Junior Kiki went 2-for-3 with a double and an RBI, and senior Steph Pasquale went 2-for-3 with an RBI.
This comes after Minnesota broke open a 3-3 late in Saturday’s game for an 8-3 win. In the opener on Friday evening, the Huskers fell behind 5-0, before coming up short in their rally in an 8-7 final.
In that series opening loss, Nebraska saw its conference winning streak snapped at eight, its home winning streak snapped at 14 and its home conference winning streak snapped at 13.
