Creighton combined a step-up performance by Michael Blatchford on Friday night with the shutdown pitching of Tommy Strunc, Mark Winkelman and Jake Peter in posting a 5-3 win against Nebraska.
The Bluejays’ victory in the marquee game of the TD Ameritrade Classic came without the services of Mike Gerber, their leading power hitter and impeccable center fielder. He underwent an appendectomy Friday and will be sidelined indefinitely.
