Peters Delivers Game Winner for White Team
Lincoln - After getting out to an early lead and coasting to victory on Thursday night, the White team had to score three runs in the bottom of the seventh inning to capture its second straight win on Friday night by a score of 4-3 at the Nebraska baseball team's annual Red-White Series.
Entering the bottom of the seventh with a 3-1 lead, the Red squad couldn't close the door the White's offense. Following a leadoff groundout from Sam Stucky, Taylor Fish started the rally with a single that was followed by consecutive walks to Kevin Terry and Michael Siwa. Ty Kildow then reached a fielder's choice, but no outs were made and Fish scored, while the bases remained loaded. Michael Pritchard came through with his first hit of the game on a single to left, scoring Siwa to tie the game. With one out and the bases still load, Bryan Peters came through with a sacrifice fly to left field that scored Terry to win the game.
The White offense was led by Terry and Fish, who each had two hits, while four different White players notched a RBI. The Reds were led by true freshmen Austin Darby and Patrick Kelly. The pair combined for three doubles, including two from Kelly, and punched in one run. Both teams put the ball in play on the night with the two pitching staffs combining for just three strikeouts.
Even though the White team has already won the three-game series, the Huskers will play once more tomorrow at 11 a.m. After playing a pair of seven-inning games on Thursday and Friday, the Huskers will play nine innings tomorrow. Admission is free, but it will cost $25 to park in the parking lot due to the football game. Fans are encouraged to try and find parking on the street.
