Nebraska 9, Northwestern 6
Lincoln - Brooke Thomason's walk-off grand slam with two outs in the bottom of the seventh capped a four-run comeback, as the Nebraska softball team won its first Big Ten game in thrilling come-from-behind fashion, 9-6, over Northwestern on Friday at Bowlin Stadium. Nebraska, which fell behind 4-0, chipped away at the lead before exploding for five runs in its final at bat. The Huskers trailed 5-1 heading into the bottom of the fifth before scoring twice in the fifth and once in the sixth. Trailing 6-4 with one out in the seventh, senior Nikki Haget got the rally started with a single. Junior Gabby Banda followed with a double off the fence in right to put runners at first and third. Amy Letourneau then came on in relief of starter Meghan Lamberth. Letourneau was called for an illegal pitch on her first pitch, allowing Haget to score and Banda to move up to third. Sophomore Taylor Edwards was then intentionally walked, before senior Ashley Guile popped out. With runners on first and third and two outs, sophomore Tatum Edwards worked a walk to load the bases. Thomason, who had homered in her previous at bat, then blasted a 1-1 pitch to deep center for a walk-off grand slam. RECAP
