Nebraska’s softball team is about as red hot as the batting helmet it sports on the diamond.

Sunday afternoon, the Huskers overcame an 8-1 deficit to Minnesota, rallying to extend its win streak to 18 games after an 11-8 victory over the Golden Gophers. Nebraska put together big innings in the 5th and 6th to keep the win streak rolling.

Minnesota opened the game with an 8-1 run heading into the Bottom 3rd. The Huskers were able to get 3 runs on the board thanks to a 2-RBI single from Caitlynn Neal and an RBI single from Peyton Glatter.

Glatter came up big again in the Bottom 5th, hitting a grand slam to tie the game at 8-8. In the 6th, Mya Felder hit a 2-run shot to give the Huskers a 10-8 lead and Neal added an insurance run with an RBI double.

With the win, Nebraska remains undefeated in B1G play at 13-0. Overall, the Huskers are 33-9 and have put together 18-straight victories. The team’s last loss came on March 15, a 4-0 defeat at the hands of San Diego.

Nebraska has posted B1G series sweeps over Michigan, Rutgers, Michigan State, Iowa and Minnesota. Next, the Huskers will travel to Madison to take on Wisconsin for a 3-game series from Friday-Sunday.
