Minneapolis – Nebraska senior Christian DeLeon went the distance for the second straight week on Saturday afternoon in a 5-2 win over the Minnesota Golden Gophers, securing a series win for the Huskers, who are now 22-14 overall and 6-2 in Big Ten play. Nebraska has won five straight conference games and will try to sweep its second straight Big Ten series tomorrow at 2:05 p.m. The Huskers last swept consecutive series since 2006, when took three games at Missouri and then returned home to sweep Texas A&M. Following a complete game against the Ohio State Buckeyes last weekend in Lincoln, DeLeon became the first Husker pitcher to notch consecutive complete games since Erik Bird threw back-to-back complete games against New Mexico and Baylor during the 2009 season. DeLeon allowed four hits on the afternoon, with only two coming after the second inning. The Richmond, Texas, native gave up a two-out solo home run to Bobby Juan in the second and then didn’t allow another hit until Jordan Smith hit a one-out double in the ninth. DeLeon retired the Gophers in order in the fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth innings. Seven Huskers combined for eight hits on the afternoon, including a pair of singles by Pat Kelly. After scoring all eight of their runs on Friday with two outs, the Huskers plated four of their five runs on Saturday with two down.
