Late Rally Dooms Huskers in 6-4 Loss to Creighton

In a thrilling matchup at Hawks Field at Haymarket Park, the Nebraska baseball team faced a tough setback as Creighton rallied late to secure a 6-4 victory on Tuesday night.

Despite a strong showing throughout the game, the Huskers (23-11) couldn’t fend off Creighton’s (27-7) late surge, which saw them score four runs in the top of the ninth inning.

Leading the charge for Nebraska was Josh Caron, who went 2-for-4 at the plate, including a double, a home run, and two crucial RBI. Cole Evans and Tyler Stone also contributed to the Huskers’ offensive effort with RBI hits, while Clay Bradford’s double added to the team’s offensive tally.

On the mound, Caleb Clark delivered a solid performance, matching his career-high with four strikeouts during his third start of the season. However, it was Kyle Perry who took the loss after giving up key runs in the ninth inning.

The game started off with a defensive battle, but Creighton managed to break the deadlock in the fourth inning with Teddy Deters’ solo home run. Nebraska quickly responded in the bottom half of the inning, as Caron’s solo shot leveled the score at 1-1.

In the sixth inning, the Huskers surged ahead with two runs, thanks to Caron’s RBI double and Evans’ sacrifice fly, giving them a 3-1 lead.

Despite Nebraska’s solid defensive effort in the seventh inning, Creighton managed to narrow the gap with a solo home run in the eighth.

However, it was in the ninth inning that Creighton capitalized on a bases-loaded opportunity, with Deters’ grand slam giving them a decisive lead.

Although the Huskers mounted a late rally in the bottom of the ninth, with Stone’s RBI single and Bradford’s pinch-hit double, it wasn’t enough to complete the comeback.

Looking ahead, Nebraska aims to bounce back in a three-game series against Maryland this weekend at Hawks Field at Haymarket Park, with the series opener scheduled for Friday at 6:05 p.m.
