After the Huskers won Saturday night on a walk-off homer by Tanner Lubach in the 11th, Indiana returned the favor with a 4-3 walk-off win in the ninth inning of the Big Ten championship game Sunday afternoon in Minneapolis.
With a 29-30 record, Nebraska is not eligible for an at-large bid to the NCAA Tournament.
Trailing 3-1 going into the seventh, the Huskers scored when Pat Kelly drove in Austin Darby with a two-out single. They tied the game in the eighth as Kash Kalkowski led off with a single and moved into scoring position on a sacrifice by pinch-hitter Rich Sanguinetti. Blake Headley came through with his eighth hit of the tournament, an infield single that put runners on the corners, setting the table for Lubach to deliver a game-tying sacrifice fly to center.
Following a lead-off double by Will Nolden in the ninth, the Huskers intentionally walked Kyle Schwarber and then tournament MVP Sam Travis worked a walk to load the bases with nobody out. Scott Donley singled to left off reliever Josh Roeder to plate the game-winning run.
Will Coursen-Carr (3-0) went all the way for the Hoosiers, giving up three runs (all earned) on eight hits and three walks while striking out three. Jeff Chesnut (2-1) took the loss, charged with one run on one hit in 2.0 innings. He also issued four walks.
Eight seniors played their final game in a Husker uniform, including Chad Christensen, Ryan Hander, Bryan Peters, Tyler Niederklein, Josh Scheffert, Kalkowski, Dylan Vogt and Sanguinetti.
