LINCOLN — Nebraska stumbled in yet another series finale at home, ending its regular season on a sour note and missing out on a chance at a first-round bye in the Big Ten tournament.
Michigan, which needed a win Saturday to secure a spot in the league tournament, took a quick 4-0 lead and then pulled away with six runs in the fifth inning before piling on late. The Wolverines won easily 19-9, unfazed by NU's home crowd of 4,164.
