The Nebraska baseball team (32-24) fell to UConn, 16-1, in an NCAA Regional elimination game at Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark on Sunday afternoon.

The Huskers, making their fourth NCAA Tournament appearance in the last six years, saw their 2019 season come to an end after going 1-2 at the Oklahoma City Regional. It marked Nebraska’s 16th NCAA Tournament appearance in program history, and 13th appearance in the last 21 years.



 Down 7-4 heading to the ninth inning with its season on the brink, the No. 22 Creighton Baseball team used a seven-run ninth inning to stun Michigan with an 11-7 victory on Sunday night in the Corvallis Regional.

Creighton’s (41-12) dramatic rally forces a winner-take-all rematch against the Wolverines (43-19) on Monday night at 6:06 p.m. CST with a trip to the Super Regionals on the line. The game will be nationally televised on ESPN2.

Creighton’s comeback spoiled a strong outing from Michigan starter Tommy Henry, who allowed three runs in 7.1 innings but was lifted after surrendering Parker Upton’s homer, in the eighth. Four relievers combined to nail down the final five outs, but not before surrendering four hits, six walks and eight runs.


The Omaha baseball program concluded its 2019 season with a 24-6 loss against No. 2 Baylor in the NCAA Los Angeles Regional.

The Mavericks finish their historic season at 31-24-1.
