LINCOLN, Neb. -- The Nebraska softball team claimed a 10-0 shutout win over Nebraska-Kearney Thursday night. The Husker racked up 10 hits, including three home runs while holding the Lopers to just one hit.

The Husker opened the scoring in the bottom of the second inning. Felder led off the inning with a double down the left field line, followed by Kinney reaching base on a fielding error. Brooke Andrews then reached first on a fielder's choice which advanced Dakota Carter, who pinch ran for Felder, to third. Carter then proceeded to come in to score on a throwing error to second base, giving NU a 1-0 lead.

Nebraska already found themselves with two outs in the last of the third inning when Courtney Wallace came up to the dish and singled back up the middle. Gray then followed that up with a big 2-run homer to center field to extend the lead to 3-0.

NU added yet another run in the fourth inning. Brooke Andrews took a walk with two outs and Caitlynn Neal followed that up with a double to left field. This scored Andrews and brought the Huskers into the fifth inning with a 4-0 lead.

Gray singled up the middle in the bottom half of the fifth inning, then Felder proceeded to slug a home run that increased NU's lead to 6-0.

The Huskers then came back in the bottom of the sixth inning with three runs. Brooke Andrews walked with one out, then Neal collected her second double of the game into left center. Billie Andrews then reached on an infield single to the shortstop, followed by a triple from Wallace that scored both Neal and Andrews. The Huskers then entered the seventh inning holding on to a 9-0 lead

Freshman Talia Tokheim came up to bat in the bottom of the seventh inning and clobbered a solo home run to straightaway center field to cap the scoring.
