Creighton freshman Tommy Strunc, who had won his past four starts, looked to be cruising to win No. 5 as he set down the first 12 UNO batters he faced Friday night.
But things went awry for Strunc in the fifth inning, and the Bluejays had to rely on a strong finish from their bullpen to hold off the hard-charging Mavericks 4-3 in front of 3,271 at TD Ameritrade Park.
