STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) — J.D. Davis hit a two-out, eighth-inning grand slam, lifting Cal State Fullerton to a 5-1 victory over Nebraska in the first game of the Stillwater regional Friday.

Third-seeded Fullerton (33-22) won its eighth straight and advanced to Saturday’s winners’ bracket matchup against the winner of Friday night’s Oklahoma State-Binghamton contest.

No. 2 Nebraska (40-20) will play in the consolation bracket Saturday.

Davis, who had already ended Cornhuskers starter Chance Sinclair’s no-hitter in the seventh, was the first batter to face Nebraska reliever Josh Roeder. He promptly sent a 2-1 pitch about 30 feet over the left field wall to clear the bases.

Nebraska led 1-0 when Sinclair lost his no-hitter and shutout in the seventh. After Fullerton’s Keegan Dale reached by error, Davis lined a single to left field, extending his hitting streak to 13 games. One out later, Davi Olmedo-Barrera’s RBI single up the middle brought home Dale.
