With runs in six of their nine innings, the Bluejays rolled to an 11-4 win over Nebraska Omaha Saturday afternoon at Werner Park.

Creighton (14-5) took advantage of some Omaha miscues to plate a run in the second and two more in the third. The Bluejays' first tally came on a walk to Reagan Fowler, an error sending him to second and an RBI single by Jerry Mitchell.

Creighton's two-run third got going on consecutive singles by Brennan Murphy and Jake Peter. One out later, the duo executed a double steal and an errant throw allowed Murphy to scamper home. Fowler plated Peter on a double to center.

After giving back a run in the bottom of the third with two wild pitches, the Jays pushed their lead to 5-1 in the fourth. Ryan Fitzgerald reached second on a dropped pop up to open the frame. Fitzgerald then sprinted home on Mitchell's second RBI single of the game. One out later, a walk by Murphy and a single from Peter loaded the bases for Mike Gerber, who worked a four-pitch walk to give Creighton a 5-1 edge.

The Mavs rallied for two runs in the fourth to trim the deficit to 5-3 and the teams exchanged runs in the seventh to make it 6-4. The Jays' seventh-inning run came on a double from Alex Staehely, a sacrifice and a wild pitch.

CU put the game away with four runs in the eighth, capped by a two-run single by Fitzgerald and added a run in the ninth via an RBI double from Peter.

Mark Lukowski (3-1) allowed one run on one hit in 3.1 innings of relief for the win. Starter Cory Buckley (0-3) surrendered three runs on five hits in three innings for the 5-14 Mavericks.
