Nevada Softball Falls to Boise State

Posted: Updated:

BOISE, Idaho - The University of Nevada softball team fell 10-2 to Boise State on Thursday, dropping the opening game of a three-game series in five innings.

With the loss, the Wolf Pack is 29-22 (8-8 MW), while the Broncos are 24-25-1 (8-8 MW) with the win.

A seven-run third inning did the damage, as Boise State opened up its eight-run lead on five hits and one Pack error.
Nevada scored once in the first and once in the third, but left seven runners on base in the game and four in those two innings.

In the first, Nevada left the bases loaded and failed to capitalize on what turned out to be a big opportunity to leap out to an early lead. The sacks were packed with one out, only to see Jasmine Jenkins and Lauren Lastrapes strike out to end the frame.

In the top of the third, Nevada again had the chance to do more damage, but was only able to come up with one run. With runners at second and third, Sara Parsons was caught too far off the bag at third base on a ball that bounced to the plate and away from Boise State catcher Brittany McCray. Parsons started to go toward the plate when the ball hit McCray's chest protector, but she was able to grab it quickly and start the rundown that ended the inning. Parsons was eventually tagged out 2-5-1 (catcher to third base to pitcher).

The big inning followed, and Nevada was unable to score again.

The second game of the series will be played at 2 p.m. on Friday.
