Huskers Rally for 8-6 Win over Hawkeyes
Huskers Rally for 8-6 Win over Hawkeyes: Trailing 6-5 with two outs in the bottom of the eighth inning the Nebraska baseball team (21-13-1, 5-3-1 Big Ten) scored three runs, with two coming in on a triple by Mojo Hagge. Luis Alvarado closed the door in the ninth, his sixth save of the year, and the Huskers notched a 8-6 win to avoid a sweep by the Iowa Hawkeyes (22-12, 5-4 Big Ten). Nebraska hasn't been swept at home during conference play in 2009, when it was swept three times during Big 12 play by Kansas State, Texas and Missouri.
