LINCOLN, Neb. (KWWL) -

The Iowas baseball team erased a pair of deficits, but the last one proved to be too much as Nebraska held off the Hawks 8-6. Iowa still took two out of three from the Huskers in the series.

The Hawkeyes trailed 3-1 in the sixth inning before Robert Neustrom lined a two-run base hit in to centerfield, briefly tying the game. The Cornhuskers scored twice in the bottom half of the inning to regain a 5-3 edge.

Iowa once again threatened again in the eighth inning. Trailing 5-4, Iowa eventually moved in to a 6-5 lead after Matt Hoeg's single to left scored two more. Nebraska, however, regained the lead on a two-run triple in to right in the bottom half of the eighth. They'd tack on another insurance run in the inning.
