Nebraska shuts out Baylor in near no-hitter

Nate Fisher struck out six and didn't allow a hit in eight shutout innings in Nebraska's 2-0 win over No. 21 Baylor Saturday.

After hitting Richard Cunningham to lead off the ninth inning, Fisher was replaced by Robbie Palkert, who induced a double play to push the Bears within an out of being no-hit for the first time since 1971.

Davis Wendzel came through with a two-out single to put Baylor (9-4) in the hit column.

Colby Gomes relieved Palkert and forced Davion Downey to line out to right field to end the game.

Nebraska (6-6) will try to finish off a sweep Sunday. First pitch is set for 12:05 p.m.
