Husker Win At College Station

Curtis Ledbetter went 3-for-4 with two homers, while Joba Chamberlain fired a complete-game four-hitter, leading No. 10 Nebraska to a 2-1 victory over Texas A&M in front of a crowd of 6,812 at Olsen Field Friday evening.

Ledbetter provided Nebraska with all of the offense they needed, belting his 10th and 11th homers of the year to lead the Huskers’ 10-hit attack. The two homers marked Ledbetter’s fourth multi-homer game of the season and sixth of his career for the senior first baseman from Lawrence, Kan.

Chamberlain turned in a dominant performance, striking out five without a walk in turning in the first complete game of his Husker career. The right-hander from Lincoln allowed only one run – Coby Mavroulis’ solo homer in the third – and faced one over the minimum through seven innings.

The Huskers (30-6, 7-3 Big 12) used Ledbetter’s two homers to take a one-run lead and held on for just their third win in 14 tries in College Station, as the Aggies (22-15-1, 4-9 Big 12) put the tying runner in scoring position in each of the final two innings.
