SAN DIEGO — An early barrage of runs by Tulane was not enough Sunday during the final day of the Tony Gwynn Classic as Nebraska scored in all but two innings to send the Green Wave to an 11-5 loss at Fowler Park.
Tulane (4-3) finished its trip to San Diego with one win in three games. The Wave beat Arizona 11-10 on Friday before falling 7-6 to San Diego on Saturday.
Nebraska (2-4) took the lead in the top of the first with an RBI double off Emerson Gibbs, but the Green Wave loaded the bases in the second before junior shortstop Stephen Alemais cleared them with a three-run double to left-center.
But Tulane’s lead did not last long: The Cornhuskers scored four times in the third, including two on an inside-the-park homer by Jake Meyers.
Nebraska added one in the fourth, two in the fifth and another in the sixth. In the bottom of the sixth, Lex Kaplan doubled and came home on a two-run homer by Jake Willsey.
The Cornhuskers scored single runs in the seventh and eighth.
Gibbs (0-1) lasted 3.1 innings, allowing six runs and seven hits while fanning two.
Tulane visits Southeastern at 6 p.m. Wednesday.
