Nevada Media Release3/25
Tom Jameson went eight innings and gave up only one run to win his third game of the year and lead Nevada past Loyola Marymount, 6-3 Sunday at Peccole Park.
The win clinched the three-game series 2-1 for the Wolf Pack, as it improved to 12-10 overall. LMU fell to 8-12 with the loss.
Jameson is now 3-1, as he posted a stellar line of eight innings pitched, four hits, one earned run, five strikeouts and two walks against the Lions on Sunday. He faced 29 batters and threw 120 pitches.
Nevada's offense supported the junior starter early, with Brooks Klein hitting his team-leading fourth home run in the bottom of the first. Klein looked at a strike, and then took the second pitch from LMU starter John Lally over the fence in left-center field.
The Pack led for the entire game, scoring all six of its runs before LMU got on the board in the eighth.
Two runs in the Nevada fourth came on three hits and an RBI groundout. The groundout came from Carlos Escobar Jr., as he drove in his 14th run of the year. He is one behind Klein, who leads the Wolf Pack with 15.
Garrett Yrigoyen had two hits, including a double, hitting fourth for the first time in his career and serving as Nevada's designated hitter until the ninth inning. In the ninth, he came in to relieve Jameson, giving up LMU's final two runs on two hits.
Bradey Shipley started at shortstop for the first time this season and was 1-4 at the plate.
Nevada will play its fourth game in four days Monday, when it travels to take on UC Davis at 2:30 p.m. Don Marchand will have the call on ESPN Radio 1450 AM, with coverage beginning at 2:15 p.m.
