Minnesota scored a run in the eighth to edge Nebraska 4-3 Saturday afternoon in Minneapolis.

Ryan Abrahamson led off with a single and was sacrificed to second by Dan Olinger. NU head coach Darin Erstad brought in Josh Roeder to relieve Luke Bublitz (2-1). With the wind blowing out at nearly 20 mph, the defense was playing deep, which allowed pinch-hitter Mark Tatera to drop a single into shallow center that scored Abrahamson.

Dalton Sawyer (2-2) struck out the side in the top of the ninth.

The Huskers took advantage of three Minnesota errors in the first inning to take a 2-0 lead. Pat Kelly was the only one to get a hit with a single while Blake Headley drove in a run on a sacrifice fly.

The Gophers scored once in the second. Abrahamson led off with a double and took third on a ground out by Olinger. With Alex LaShomb batting, catcher Taylor Fish was unable to snag a high fastball from Kyle Kubat and Abrahamson came home on the passed ball.

Minnesota went up 3-2 in the third. With runners on the corners and one down, Kurt Schlangen dropped a double down the right field line.

The Huskers tied it in the fourth as Austin Darby knocked a two-out triple scoring Headley from second.
