Michigan rallied from four runs down to beat the Huskers 6-5 Friday night in Ann Arbor.
Nebraska (32-21, 13-10 Big Ten) took a 4-0 lead in the fourth. Josh Scheffert singled, moved to second on a sacrifice bunt by Rich Sanguinetti and advanced to third on a ground out by Austin Darby. Kale Kiser walked to put runners on the corners to set the stage for a successful double steal. Cory Burleson then singled and Pat Kelly followed with his eighth home run of the year, most for a freshman at NU since Matt Hopper hit 21 in 2000.
The Wolverines got their offense going in the bottom of the frame with three runs. NU starter Ryan Hander was his own worst enemy as he issued a pair of walks to start the inning and both men scored.
The Huskers got a run back in the fifth to go up 5-3. Richard Stock laced his 17th double of the season down the right-field line and later scored on a fielder's choice off the bat of Sanguinetti.
Michigan (22-33, 8-15 Big Ten) took its first lead of the game in the bottom of the seventh with three runs on two hits and a pair of one-out walks off reliever Brandon Pierce (5-4).
The Huskers are now two games back of both the Indiana Hoosiers and Penn State Nittany Lions with one game to play, which means the highest NU can finish in the Big Ten standings is fourth.
