A pitcher's duel took place at Hixson Park Friday afternoon and visiting Boise State came out the victors of a 1-0 Mountain West contest over the Nevada softball team.

Neither team could muster up a hit until the top of the fourth when Boise State's leadoff batter, Tara Glover, connected on a solo shot to center field. Glover's fourth long ball of the season put the Broncos (19-18, 4-6 MW) ahead 1-0 midway through the game.

During the ensuing half inning, the Wolf Pack (21-17, 3-7 MW) advanced Erin Jones and Jasmine Jenkins into scoring position with just one out. Boise State starter Rebecca Patton managed to get the next two batters to ground back to the circle to end the Nevada threat in the fourth.

In the top of the sixth, the Broncos led off the inning with a single to right. After back-to-back infield pop outs, Jordan Kreiger doubled to the left center gap but the runner was held at third. Nevada starter Karlyn Jones recorded the final out of the inning, getting the next batter to groundout to shortstop Megan Sweet.

Nikki Orozco led off the bottom of the sixth for the Pack with a line drive double that bounced off the left field fence, breaking up the no-hitter for Patton. Nevada was able to add an additional base runner when Ashley Butera drew a walk, but both runners failed to cross home plate.

With one more chance in the bottom half of the seventh, the Pack did its best to rally a comeback. Sara Parsons lined a single to right center to begin the frame. With one down, Molly McWilliams recorded a loud, pinch-hit, second out, a deep flyout to left. Sweet stepped in and roped an opposite field liner that rolled all the way to the left field fence. With Parsons running all the way, the Broncos were able to make quick throws into the catcher who tagged Parsons out at the plate, ending the game in a 1-0 favor of Boise State.

K. Jones tossed all seven innings for Nevada, giving up just the one earned run on the fourth inning homerun. She falls to 5-6 on the year despite surrendering just four hits and striking out five.

Nevada continues its three-game series with Boise State tomorrow afternoon. First pitch is set for 1 p.m.
