Nevada Release

The 22-ranked Nevada baseball team suffered a 9-8 setback to San Diego on Monday night at Folwer Park after losing a six-run lead. The Toreros snapped the Pack's four-game win streak with six runs to tie the game in the eighth before plating a walk-off run in the ninth.

Nevada jumped out to an 8-2 lead before losing for the first time in 29 games this season when leading after the seventh inning. The Wolf Pack falls to 31-10 overall while the Toreros improve to 23-16. Nevada was playing its fourth road game in four days, posting a 3-1 record in that stretch after sweeping San Diego State to take a two-game lead in the Mountain West standings.

The Pack scored two runs in the second to take an early lead. Junior Bryce Greager singled and senior Kewby Meyer scored on a Torero error. With Greager at third base, senior Jordan Devencenzi hit an RBI sacrifice bunt. San Diego responded with two runs in its half of the inning to tie the game.

Greager scored the go-ahead run in the third with an RBI single. With the bases loaded on two outs, senior Ryan Teel made it 5-2 with a two-RBI single. The Pack plated two runs in the fifth when sophomore Trenton Brooks scored on a wild pitch and Teel hit another RBI single. Nevada went ahead 8-2 in the sixth inning when Devencenzi drew a bases loaded hit by pitch.

The Toreros rallied to tie the game with six runs on seven hits in the bottom eighth. Kyle Holder and Jesse Jenner homered before Ben Wylly hit a bases-loaded double to score three runs and tie the game.

After Nevada was retired in order in the top of the ninth, San Diego got the lead-off batter on before moving him to scoring position with a sacrifice bunt. Jenner hit a walk-off single to score Holder for the winning run to complete the comeback.

Nevada finished with eight runs on seven hits while leaving 10 players on base. Teel led the Wolf Pack with two hits and three RBI. Greager added two hits, an RBI and a run while Meyer plated three runs.

Freshman LHP Jojo Romero started on the mound, allowed two runs in 1.2 innings before reaching his pitch count. Junior LHP Cameron Rowland pitched four innings in relief, posting three straight 1-2-3 frames before allowing three runs in the eighth. Sophomore two-way player Trenton Brooks took the loss on the mound despite facing only one batter in the bottom of the ninth.

The Wolf Pack will return to Peccole Park for the first time in eight games this weekend, hosting San José State for a three-game series, April 24-26. First pitch between the Wolf Pack and Spartans is set for 6 p.m. PT on Friday. Sunday's game – the #PopulatePeccole game – is sold out. Nevada took two of three games at Son José State earlier this season.
