The third out was hard to come by for Nebraska as Florida State scored all five of its runs with two outs to upend the Huskers 5-1 Sunday at Las Cruces, New Mexico.
The Seminoles (4-1) turned a two-on, two-out situation into a run in the third thanks to a walk and a hit batter that forced in the game's first run.
An FSU error helped the Huskers (3-1) tie the game in the bottom of the third when Taylor Edwards was hit by a two-out pitch before Hailey Decker hit a chopper to third base. Briana Hamilton made a leaping stop, but her throw to first was wild, allowing Decker to reach safely and Edwards to move to third. Kylee Muir then delivered a single through the right side to score Edwards.
Florida State used another two-out rally to regain the lead in the top of the fourth. With runners at first and second, Hamilton atoned for her error by lacing an RBI double to left field. The runner from first also attempted to score on the play, but was thrown out at the plate.
FSU then mounted its biggest two-out rally to break the game open in the fifth. The Seminoles had only a runner on first before back-to-back singles loaded the bases. Tiffani Brown then lined a three-run triple to the gap in left center to give Florida State a 5-1 lead.
Florida State All-American Lacy Waldrop (2-1) went the distance allowing an unearned run on four hits while striking out three and walking one.
NU's Emily Lockman (1-1) was able to grind out a complete-game, 146-pitch effort, allowing five runs on 11 hits while walking six, hitting a pair of batters and striking out five.
