The Nebraska baseball team survived a ninth inning jam to beat Kansas 3-1 Wednesday night at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City.
On the mound, junior Max Knutson gave up only four hits and struck out five in five and a third innings of work and freshman Chad Luensmann worked out of a bases loaded jam in the bottom of the ninth to record his ninth save of the season.
The Nebraska offense needed just five hits on the night to score three runs, as they also drew seven walks and were hit by pitches three times. Luis Alvarado led the Huskers with a pair of singles, his 13th multi-hit game of the season.
The Huskers (26-15) return to Big Ten play on Friday afternoon when they open a three game series at Rutgers.
