WICHITA, Kan.- Creighton scored two in the top of the ninth, breaking the stalemate and eliminating Northern Iowa, 4-2.

The Buejays scored a run in the seventh to tie it up at two and threatened to send the game into extra innings.  Joe Servais doubled in the left-center gap, Brett Mieras sacrificed the runner to third and Michael Lam brought in the tying run with a rip up the middle.

T.J. Roemmich led off the CU ninth with a single and moved over on a sacrifice bunt by Lam.  Elliot Soto reached on a fielder’s choice, as Roemmich advanced to third.  Steve Winkelmann had the game winning hit, a single to centerfield that scored two.

Creighton manufactured its first run on a Nick Nordgren single, wild pitch and two fielder’s choices.  UNI got that back quickly with a solo homerun by Brett Featherston in the bottom of the second.

The Panthers took a temporary lead when Chris Lopez doubled in Dane Embury, giving UNI a 2-1 lead in the third.

Creighton’s Zak Moore and Pat Venditte combined for the game.  Venditte picked up the win with a scoreless four innings to finish up the game.

Creighton plays the loser of Wichita State and Southern Illinois at 11 a.m., Friday morning.
