New Mexico Rallies Past Wolf Pack

Posted: Updated:

 

Mountain West leading New Mexico (24-16, 14-4 MW) scored eight runs in the top of the ninth to rally for a 15-11 victory over Nevada (19-20, 7-11 MW) to win all three games from the Wolf Pack this weekend.   The Pack has lost a season-high four in a row for the second time this season.

 Nevada is under .500 for the first time since the third game of the season at 19-20 and is fifth in the MW standings with 7-11 record.  The Lobos improved to 24-16 and 14-4 in conference play.

 Nevada built a six-run advantage after four innings and led 8-1 going to the top of the seventh inning.  A costly error in the top of the seven allowed UNM to score five unearned runs and draw within a pair at 8-6.  The Pack tallied two unearned runs in the bottom of the seventh and led 10-6.  The Lobos scored once in the eighth to make it a three-run game.

 After the first out of the ninth was recorded the next seven Lobo hitters reached base in the big inning.  In total 12 players hit and eight scored as UNM rallied for its sixth consecutive MW victory.

 Pack starter Tom Jameson allowed six runs but just one was earned in 6.2 innings on the mound and received a no decision.  Closer Michael Fain (2-2) was tagged with the loss allowing four runs on three hits and retired one batter.

 UNM closer Josh Walker (4-0) earned the win giving up two runs, one earned in his three innings on the mound.

 Six Lobo players had multiple hits in the game.  The top three UNM hitters in the lineup combined to go 8-for-15 with five runs scored and 10 RBI.

 Nevada catcher Ryan Teel (3-for-4,2R,3RBI) led the Pack with three hits and drove in three.  The three hits and three RBI are both career highs.  One of hits was a solo home run in the bottom of the ninth.

 Nevada hosts Pacific on Tuesday night at 6 p.m.
