The Huskers took a 3-2 into the bottom of the ninth, but a two-out single off the bat of Adam Landecker was enough to score Kevin Swick from second to complete USC's comeback, sending NU to its fourth straight loss Sunday afternoon in Los Angeles.
The Trojans (1-2) got a run in the second on a sacrifice fly. Jake Hernandez reached on a one-out single and after moving to third on a double by Vahn Bozoian, USC's designated hitter scored on a deep fly out off the bat of Swick.
Nebraska (0-4) took a 3-1 lead in the sixth. Pat Kelly laced a base hit to lead off the inning and Rich Sanguinetti followed with a bunt single. USC caught a break when Chad Christensen popped out on a sacrifice attempt for the first out of the inning, but Kash Kalkowski placed a single through the left side that scored Kelly to tie the game 1-1.
With Sanguinetti at third and Kalkowski at second, Josh Scheffert's sacrifice fly to center made it 2-1. Tanner Lubach's single plated Kalkowski for the 3-1 advantage. USC cut the deficit to one in the seventh as Timmy Robinson tripled home Swick.
Dylan Vogt (0-1) started the ninth and retired the first batter, but Bozoian singled and Swick followed with a double to put the tying and winning runs in scoring position. The Huskers loaded the bases with an intentional walk, setting the stage for Garrett Stubbs to lift a sacrifice fly to left to score the tying run. Landecker stepped to the plate and dropped a single into the left field gap that scored Swick for the game winner.
