Nevada Splits With New Mexico

Posted: Updated:

The University of Nevada baseball team split a Mountain West doubleheader on Sunday at New Mexico. 

The Wolf Pack (14-10, 3-3) came from behind to defeat the Lobos (11-12, 4-2) before a comeback in the second game fell short. Kewby Meyer was 3-for-9 with a run scored on the day, while Austin Byler was 2-for-9 with 2 RBI.

Nevada started the scoring in game one after Brooks Klein singled home Scott Kaplan, who reached on a walk. New Mexico tied the game in the fifth when Allbatron scored on a wild pitch, and took the lead in the seventh when a leadoff double resulted in a run. It wasn't until the ninth when a ball hit by Meyer fell into the outfield to score Jamison Rowe and Shaun Mize and give Nevada the lead for good. Michael Fain came into the game in the bottom of the ninth to record his seventh save of the season, but not before loading the bases with two outs. Michael Bradshaw (1-0) tossed a scoreless eighth to earn the win.

 The Lobos were the first to get on the scoreboard in game two, putting two across in both the second and third innings. Nevada responded by scoring twice in the fourth and fifth to tie the game at 4-4. Despite tying the game, New Mexico scored once in the bottom of the fifth, seventh and eighth to secure the victory.

 The Wolf Pack is in action again on Tuesday, March 26 when it travels to face Saint Mary's beginning at 3 p.m.
