The Gophers' eight-game softball winning streak ended Sunday with a 6-4 home loss to Nebraska.

The defeat in the finale of their four-game series also ended a 14-game winning streak against the Cornhuskers dating to 2015.

Natalie DenHartog hit her 11th homer and Sara Kinch also homered for Minnesota (10-5).

Finale postponed

The Gophers men's tennis match against Iowa, scheduled for Sunday at the Baseline Tennis Center, was postponed because of health safety protocols.
