Huskers Pushing Hogs To The Limit

Kyle Perry and Spencer Schwellenbach limited No. 1 Arkansas to four hits, as No. 19 Nebraska rallied back to force a decisive game seven in the Fayetteville Regional with a 5-3 win Sunday night.

The Huskers (34-13) trailed 3-2 after four frames, but used a three-run fifth inning and Schwellenbach slammed the door with a career-best 4.2 shutout innings to silence a Baum-Walker Stadium crowd of 11,084. The Big Ten Player of the Year, who also had an RBI single, fanned four and allowed just one hit – lowering his season ERA to 0.57.

Nebraska will be seeking its fifth regional title in program history and first since 2005 Monday night with first pitch set for shortly after 6 p.m.

Tonight’s game will be broadcast on Big Dog Country, 98.9 FM and 1340 AM with the Husker Sports Network.
