Nevada Release

Junior Trenton Brooks hit a first-inning home run before Northwestern plated the game’s final five runs, handing Nevada a 5-1 setback in the second game of a doubleheader at Sloan Park. Nevada falls to 0-2 on the season with a pair of losses Friday with two games remaining in the four-game series.

“I think our starting pitching in both games gave us a chance to win and that’s all you can ask for from those guys,” said head coach T.J. Bruce. “Offensively, we need to learn to make better outs and be more aggressive when the time calls for it. With two games left and a long road trip in front of us, we look forward to bouncing back tomorrow.”

After dropping a 4-2 decision in game one, Nevada responded with early offense in game two to take a one-run lead. Trenton Brooks, Nevada’s starting pitcher, hit his first home run of the season in the first frame to put Nevada in front. The Wolf Pack tallied three additional hits in the inning, but couldn’t increase the damage.

The Wildcats took the lead in its half of the inning, taking a 2-1 lead on senior Antonia Freschet’s two-RBI single. Northwestern added one run each in the third, seventh and eighth inning.

Nevada loaded the bases with one out in the second inning before stranding all three on base. The Wolf Pack also put runners on the corners in the eighth without scoring and again threatened in the ninth inning, loading the bases with one out. Freshman Kaleb Foster singled, junior Miles Mastrobuoni doubled and sophomore TJ Friedl drew a walk to load the bases, but the Wildcats shut the door with consecutive outs to close the game.

Brooks went five innings on the mound for Nevada, allowing three runs on six hits with six strikeouts in the loss. Senior RHP Sam Held and junior RHP Taylor Miller pitched in relief for the Pack as each surrendered just one run.

Foster led Nevada’s efforts at the plate with a pair of hits. The Wolf Pack scored one run on eight hits while stranding 10 runners on base.

Nevada returns to action tomorrow for the third game of the series as first pitch time is set for 5 p.m. PT at Sloan Park.
