WICHITA, Kan. — Wichita State extended its winning streak to three games and UNO’s season-opening losing streak to four games with a 5-3 victory over the Mavericks on Wednesday at Eck Stadium.

After falling behind 5-1, UNO put together a rally in the sixth inning, as Tyler Splichal drew a bases loaded walk to make it 5-2 with one out. But Splichal was picked off first base by reliever T.J. McGreevy, and both he and Alex Mortensen — who had been on third base — were tagged out in rundowns an inning-ending double play.
