A pair of unearned runs proved to be the difference as Utah edged the Huskers 4-3 Sunday afternoon in Goodyear, Arizona.

NU starter Chance Sinclair got off to a bumpy start, walking the first two batters he faced. He got a ground out and a strikeout, but issued his third walk of the inning to load the bases. Sinclair nearly got out of the inning, but a two-out error by shortstop Jake Placzek allowed the Utes to score their first unearned run.

Nebraska got the run back in the bottom of the frame on a one-out single from Michael Pritchard. With Placzek on second, Pritchard extended his on-base streak to 49 games with a hard shot up the middle.

Utah retook the lead with a run in the top of the fourth. NU reliever Jeff Chesnut (0-1) retired the first two batters he faced, but gave up a double and a pair of singles that scored a run. The Utes pushed their lead to 3-1 in the fifth with four singles off freshman reliever Derek Burkamper.

The Huskers answered in the bottom of the fourth as Placzek hit a sacrifice fly that scored Christian Cox, who reached earlier in the inning on an error.

After Utah pushed its lead to 4-2 in the sixth on another unearned run, Pat Kelly doubled in the bottom of the sixth and Blake Headley and Austin Christensen followed with singles that plated Kelly.

Dalton Carroll (1-0) got the win for Utah.
