LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Cody Asche and Tyler Farst batted in three runs each as Nebraska won 10-3 Sunday over Southeast Missouri State, completing a 3-game sweep.

Nebraska (23-24) got on the board in the first off a homer from DJ Belfonte, his seventh of the season.

Southeast Missouri State (27-20) loaded the bases in the third, but were unable to score.

Asche hit a three-run double in the third to put the Cornhuskers up 4-0. Farst followed with a three-run homer in the fifth to put the game out of reach.

Jordan Underwood (4-5) took the loss for the Redhawks.
