In the fourth first baseman Austin Byler started the inning with a solo shot to make it 2-0.  It was his team-leading sixth of the season.  Nevada scored a second run in the inning on Scott Kaplan's RBI single and the Pack was on top 3-0.  Left fielder Kewby Meyer's second home run of the season came in the fifth and Nevada led 4-0.
