Nebraska 12, Oklahoma 5

Updated:
NORMAN, Okla. (AP) _ Craig Corriston and Andrew Brown each homer and combine for seven RBIs as Nebraska beats Oklahoma 12-to-5, giving the Cornhuskers two wins in the three-game baseball series.

Luke Wertz relieved Drew Bowman with one out in the first inning Sunday and went the rest of the way on the mound for Nebraska, allowing five hits and striking out four.

After Nebraska jumped to a 3-nothing lead in the top of the first, Bowman gave up four runs to OU in the bottom half of the inning.

OU added another run in the second inning against Wertz, but the Sooners managed only two hits after that.

The Cornhuskers took a 6-to-5 lead with a three-run third inning, keyed by a two-run single by Corriston off OU starter Joseph Hughes.

Corriston hit a two-run home run in the fifth and Brown added another two-run shot in the sixth for Nebraska.

Ryan Mottern and Aljay Davis each had a pair of hits for OU.

OU falls to 25-and-13 overall and 5-and-7 in Big 12 Conference play while Nebraska is 22-and-14 and 7-and-8.
