The Nebraska baseball season came to an end Sunday, as the Huskers lost to Cal State Fullerton 4-3 in the Stillwater Regional. The Huskers were eliminated from the NCAA Tournament after a 1-2 showing.

Facing the Titans for the second time in three days, the Huskers fell behind early. Clay Williamson hit a 2 RBI single in in the first inning off of Nebraska starter Aaron Bummer. The Titans held the lead until a Nebraska rally in the 6th inning. Steven Reveles scored on a wild pitch. Two batters later, Blake Headley gave Nebraska a 3-2 lead with a run scoring single.

The Huskers wouldn't remain in front for long. The following inning, Bummer hit a batter and the Huskers committed to fielding errors allowing CSF to tie the game at 3-3. Reliever Bob Greco was called for a balk, which scored the game-winning run.

Nebraska got two runners on in the 9th inning, but was unable to mount another late comeback.

The Huskers' season comes to an end with a 41-21 record. Nebraska qualified for the NCAA Tournament this year for the first time since 2008.
