Cal State Fullerton defeated Nebraska Sunday afternoon for the second time in three days, 4-3 at the NCAA Regional in Stillwater, Oklahoma.

Clay Williamson drove in two runs with a single in the first for the Titans. The Huskers got a run in the fourth and took the lead in the sixth inning. Steven Reveles scored on a wild pitch and two batters later, Blake Headley's single plated the go-ahead run.

Down 3-2 in the seventh, Fullerton scored twice without registering a hit. Jared Deacon was hit by a pitch and moved to second when Taylor Bryant reached on an error by pitcher Aaron Bummer. One out later, Husker shortstop Reveles could not come up with Keegan Dale's sharp grounder, allowing Deacon to score and advancing Bryant to third. Reliever Bob Greco was called for a balk, bringing home Bryant with what proved to be the winning run.

Nebraska's season ends with a 41-21 record, having qualified for the NCAA Tournament this year for the first time since 2008. Cal State Fullerton (34-23) advanced to Sunday night's regional final against top-seeded Oklahoma State, a rematch of Saturday night's 13-7 loss.
