LINCOLN, Neb. -- Aaron Poreda (8-5) repeatedly worked out of trouble in his six-plus innings and San Francisco knocked No. 6 national seed Nebraska out of the NCAA tournament, 6-1.

The Dons (39-22) converted two Nebraska errors and two balks by Tony Watson (10-2) into three runs in the second inning and used a walk, passed ball and sacrifice fly for another run in the sixth. Joey Railey hit his second home run of the season in the seventh.

The Huskers (42-17) stranded runners in scoring position in five of the first seven innings. Their lone run came on Andy Gerch's home run in the fourth.
