Nebraska rallies in 9th, stays alive

  Steven Reveles has two RBIs including the a game-winning bunt in the Cornhuskers' win.

STILLWATER, Okla. -- Steven Reveles laid down a perfect suicide squeeze bunt, bringing home Jake Placzek from third with the winning run, as Nebraska rallied for three runs in the top of the ninth to escape with a 8-6 victory against Binghamton on Saturday in an elimination game in NCAA regional play.

Nebraska (41-20) squandered leads of 4-0 and 5-3 and entered the ninth down 6-5. With one out, Ben Miller walked and, after Placzek singled, came home on Ryan Boldt's high-chopper ground ball that bounced over Binghamton second baseman Daniel Nevares into right field, to tie it.

Reveles, who already had two hits and an RBI, followed with the bunt to make it 7-6. Michael Pritchard then delivered another run-scoring single to score Boldt.

The Cornhuskers, who lost 5-1 to Cal State Fullerton on Friday, survived to play again Sunday, while Binghamton (25-27), which won four consecutive elimination games last week just to qualify for the NCAA tournament, was eliminated.

Down 5-3, Binghamton answered in the bottom of the sixth, scoring three runs to take its first lead of the contest, going ahead on Bill Bereszniewicz's two-out single to left.
