Senior Bryce Greager hit a game-winning RBI single in the top of the 11th inning and turned a 5-4-3 double play in the bottom 11th, clinching an extra-innings victory for the Nevada baseball team at UNLV. The Wolf Pack lost a four-run lead in the ninth inning before bouncing back to win, 6-5, in an 11-inning marathon at Earl E. Wilson Stadium on Friday.

The Wolf Pack improves to 9-12 on the season and 3-4 in Mountain West play while clinching the series victory against the Rebels (8-13, 3-5) after consecutive wins. Nevada has now won three consecutive three-game series against its rivals in Governor’s Series action.

Junior RHP Trevor Charpie took a three-hitter into the ninth inning before junior RHP Ty Pennington earned the win on the mound, while junior LHP Anthony Martine took the save in the 11th inning. Greager led Nevada with two hits and two RBI and junior Trenton Brooks 3-of-5 with two runs scored.

“On the road, most times you don’t win these types of games when the home team bounces back late and the momentum shifts,” said head coach T.J. Bruce. “It took a gutty performance for us to pull that out. I’m proud of how we stayed together and kept at the process.”

Nevada jumped out to an early lead with one run in the first inning as junior Miles Mastrobuoni hit an RBI double to score Brooks. The Rebels tied the game with one run in the second inning before the Pack reclaimed the lead with one run in the fifth. Freshman Kaleb Foster hit a leadoff single before scoring from third on sophomore TJ Friedl’s RBI bunt.

The Pack added two runs in the eighth inning to take a 4-1 lead. Senior Justin Hazard hit a single to right field before scoring from third on a fielder’s choice, while Brooks hit an RBI sacrifice fly to score sophomore Cole Krzmarzick. Nevada added one more run in the ninth to lead 5-1 as Friedl hit a leadoff double and scored on Greager’s RBI single.

Charpie – a six-foot righty – took a one-run, three-hit performance into the ninth inning after retiring 14 straight batters. The Rebels then broke up his complete game bid in the bottom ninth, scoring four runs on five hits to tie the game at 5-5 and force extras.

After neither team threatened in the 10th, Nevada reclaimed the lead in the 11th inning. Brooks hit a leadoff single, reached second on Friedl’s sacrifice bunt and then scored as Greager lined an RBI single to center field to make it 6-5 in favor of Nevada. UNLV threated in its half of the 11th before Martine produced a 5-4-3 double play ball to end the game.

Nevada scored six runs on 15 hits while playing error-free ball. Brooks led Nevada with three hits, while Greager, Friedl, Hazard and Krzmarzick each added two hits.

The Wolf Pack and Rebels will return to the diamond for the series finale at 2:05 p.m. PT on Saturday at Earl E. Wilson Stadium. The game will be streamed live on the Mountain West Network.
