Pack Baseball Rallies For 7-6 Win Over Fresno State

Posted: Updated:

RENO, Nev.  - The University of Nevada (17-11, 5-4 MW) baseball team scored three runs in the bottom ninth inning to rally for a 7-6 Mountain West victory over Fresno State (6-18, 2-5 MW) at Peccole Park Saturday afternoon.  With the victory the Wolf Pack won the series 2-1 and improved to 17-11 and 5-4 in MW play.  The Bulldogs dropped to 6-18 and 2-5 in conference action.

Trailing 6-2 going to the bottom of the eighth inning Nevada scored two runs on an RBI single by first baseman Hugo Hernandez and a ground out by designated hitter Lance Berringer to close within two. 

After the first out of the bottom of the ninth inning was recorded the next three Pack hitters reached base.  Scott Kaplan walked and moved to third base on a single by Austin Byler.  Brooks Klein's double to the right center field gap tied the game at six.  With two down Tommy Niebergall was intentionally walked and Berringer was hit by pitch to load the bases for Ryan Teel.  Teel completed the comeback when he drew a walk as Klein scored the winning run.

Nevada scored single runs in the third and fourth innings but FS sent 10 hitters to the plate in the top of the sixth to take a 6-2 lead.  That would be all the scoring for the Bulldogs as the Pack scored the final five runs of the game to win 7-6.

Sean Prihar (2-0) pitched a scoreless inning of relief to earn his second victory of the season.  William Munro (1-3) suffered the loss allowing three runs on four hits in his 1.1 innings on the mound.

Nevada had 10 hits in the game with Jamison Rowe (2-for-5,RBI), Byler (2-for-4,23R,) Klein (2-for-5,R,RBI) and Niebergall (2-for-3,RBI) collecting two hits apiece.  Six different Pack hitters drove in a run.

Aaron Judge (3-for-5,R) had three of the Bulldogs 10 hits in the game.

Nevada plays the Reno Aces in an exhibition contest on Tuesday at Aces Ballpark with first pitch scheduled for 6 p.m.  The Pack returns to MW action at San Diego State next weekend.
