Nevada Baseball Grabs Win Over St. John's

Posted: Updated:

The Nevada baseball team received a combination of superb pitching, defense and timely hits in a 5-1 victory over St. John’s on Saturday afternoon at Peccole Park. The Wolf Pack (7-11) clinched its first series win of the season while limiting the Red Storm (7-9-1) to one run for the second straight outing.

Junior RHP Trevor Charpie picked up his first win in a Pack uniform, scattering five hits, no walks and one run in five innings of work. Nevada allowed one run in the first frame before Charpie, senior LHP Cameron Rowland (3.0 IP) and junior RHP Evan McMahan (1.0 IP) kept St. John’s off the scoreboard in the final eight frames. The Pack allowed just one run on five hits.

Nevada scored all of its runs with a five-run fourth inning, receiving a pair of bases-loaded hits. Junior Miles Mastrobuoni, senior Bryce Greager and sophomore TJ Friedl each led the Wolf Pack with two hits apiece. 

“All three pitchers were impressive today,” said head coach T.J. Bruce. “They attacked the zone and pitched well and offensively, we had some timely hits and stayed aggressive on the base paths. When you pitch and play defense, good things happen.”

The Red Storm plated one run in the first inning to take its first lead of the series. The Wolf Pack responded with five runs in the fourth frame, sending the entire lineup to bat while taking a 5-1 lead. Mastrobuoni hit a two-RBI single, Fennell hit an RBI single and redshirt freshman Keaton Smith capped the damage with a bases-loaded, two-RBI double to left field.

Nevada’s offensive output in the fourth inning was all the team needed. St. John’s went three-up, three-down at the plate in the final six innings. Rowland allowed just one base runner in three innings of work with one walk and no hits. McMahan clinched the win for Nevada with a 1-2-3 ninth inning.

The Pack scored five runs on nine hits. Mastrobuoni led Nevada with two hits, two RBI and one run while improving his batting average to .417 on the season. Meanwhile, the Pack held St. John’s to 5-of-31 (.161) at the plate with nine innings of errorless defense.

The series finale between the Wolf Pack and Red Storm is set for Sunday afternoon at Peccole Park. First pitch is set for 1 p.m. PT.
