Southern Miss Upsets Nebraska

Jeff Cook threw out the potential tying run at the plate to end the game as Southern Mississippi defeated Nebraska 6-5 in the final round of the Bank One Lake Area Classic. The Cornhuskers had already scored once in the ninth and had pinch-runner Mike Sillman on second with two outs. Matt Hopper singled to left field off Brian Hurley, but Sillman couldn't beat Cook's throw. Brad Wilcutt had three hits and two runs, and Bobby Garner had a two-run single that gave Southern Miss a 3-0 lead in the first inning. The Golden Eagles are 6-and-1.
