Cal State Fullerton 4 Nebraska 3
STILLWATER, Okla. – Grahamm Wiest went eight solid innings and Cal State Fullerton capitalized on a number of mistakes as they eliminated No. 19 Nebraska 4-3 Sunday afternoon in an elimination game at Allie P. Reynolds Stadium.
The Titans (34-23) took advantage of three Cornhuskers (41-21) errors, two hit batters and a balk to score the victory and keep their season going. The Titans will now take on No. 1 seed Oklahoma State in a rematch of Saturday night’s affair. The Titans will need to defeat the Cowboys twice to advance to the Super Regionals next week.
Wiest went eight innings and allowed three runs on seven hits, earning his fifth victory of the season. He struck out five and did not issue a walk. The Titans managed just five hits offensively with Tyler Stieb, J.D. Davis, Greg Velazquez, Clay Williamson and Austin Diemer each collecting singles for Fullerton. But it was the Cornhuskers mistakes that allowed the Titans to prevail as all four of their runs were unearned.
