Billie Andrews continues the surge as Huskers slam the door on Northern Colorado, UT-Arlington | Soft ball
Billie Andrews entered the day with four home runs this season.
It didn’t take long for the second-year Nebraska shortstop to hit five and later six.
Andrews led Saturday’s game against Texas-Arlington with another homer to help NU to a 6-2 win.
Andrews’ loudest outburst came later in the day against Northern Colorado, hitting one of two Grand Slams to lead NU to a 15-3 victory and an afternoon 2-0 at the Troy Cox Classic in Las Cruces, New Mexico.
Nebraska (5-4) had four home runs against the Bears. Andrews and Cam Ybarra each hit Grand Slams, and Sydney Gray hit a two-run homer in the first inning and another two-run shot in the fifth.
Andrews, Ybarra and Gray accounted for 12 of the team’s 15 runs; Ybarra and Gray each had three hits.
NU also hit four homers in Thursday’s 14-4 win over New Mexico State.
Liv Ferrell won the victory against Northern Colorado (1-7).
Against UT-Arlington, Andrews finished with two hits and Courtney Wallace picked up her fourth win of the season after striking out six in six innings.
NU took a 3-0 lead in the second and a 6-2 lead in the fourth. Ybarra and Gray each delivered RBI singles to give the Huskers a 5-2 lead after the Roadrunners cut it back to 3-2.
NU will close play in the Troy Cox Classic against Southeast Louisiana at 10 a.m. Sunday. The Huskers were originally scheduled to play at Iowa State, but weather prevented the Cyclones from making it to the tournament.
