Husker BaseballLincoln, NE - Nick Sullivan had hit just 1 home run this year before yesterday’s 3-run bomb in the first.  Just like yesterday, Nick Sullivan provided another 3-run shot that put the Huskers up for good.  The Huskers (24-4-1, 10-1-1) finished the sweep over visiting Texas Tech (16-15, 4-8) with a 5-3 win on Sunday.

In fact, all the Huskers runs today came off the bat of Nick Sullivan.  In the first, just like yesterday, Mitch Abeita drew a two out walk to put two runners on before Sullivan drilled a ball to right center for a 2-run double.

After two solo shots in the 3rd and 4th of Husker starter Aaron Pribanic, Texas Tech would actually take their first lead of the weekend in the top of the 6th when a Tech double would score a runner from first.  But then Sullivan would hit his second 3-run homer in as many days to put the Huskers in front for good.

On the mound, Pribanic was decent, but struggled with control a little giving 4 free passes.  He would end up with 3 earned runs over 6 innings scattering 6 hits and striking out 6.  The final three innings would be held down by Zach Herr, Mike Nesseth, and Dan Jennings who would only allow 2 hits and strikeout 5.

The Huskers will now hit the road for a 4 game stretch starting with Iowa on Tuesday night before heading to Stillwater for a matchup with Oklahoma State.
