The Nebraska softball team (10-9) led through six and a half innings, but Wichita State (17-5) hit a grand slam in the bottom of the sixth en route to a 7-5 victory in game two of Sunday’s doubleheader. With the win, the Shockers completed the weekend sweep.
The Huskers out-hit the Shockers 7-5. Tristen Edwards led NU going 2-for-3 with one run, two RBIs and a home run. Lindsey Walljasper also had a home run for Nebraska. Rylie Unzicker, Alyiva Simmons, Samantha Owen and Lexey Kneib also had hits.
Nebraska concludes non-conference play next weekend when the Huskers travel to Lawrence, Kan., for the Rock Chalk Challenge on March 16-17. The Huskers will play Tulsa and host-school Kansas, twice for a total of four games.
