Junior Trenton Brooks hit a walk-off, RBI single in the bottom of the 10th inning and the Nevada baseball team won a thriller at Peccole Park, 6-5, against San Diego State on Friday. Winners of five straight games, Nevada improves to 12-12 on the season and 5-4 in Mountain West play.

Nevada took a 5-3 lead into the ninth inning before the Aztecs rallied to force extra innings. With two outs and two runners on base in the bottom 10th, Brooks lined a single up the middle to score sophomore Grant Fennell for the game-winning run. The Pack improves to 2-2 in extra-inning games this season.

Junior Justin Bridgman went 3-of-5 at the plate and led Nevada with super defensive play at short stop, assisting in 11 putouts. Sophomore Cole Krzmarzick added a career-high three hits and two RBI, while Brooks went 2-of-6 with the game-winning RBI. Senior LHP Christian Stolo started on the mound and allowed three runs in 6.1 innings in a no-decision. Junior RHP Ty Pennington notched his second win of the year, tossing a scoreless 10th inning.

The Wolf Pack broke a scoreless stalemate in the third inning, plating two runs on four hits. With runners on the corners, sophomore TJ Friedl and senior Bryce Greager each hit two-out, RBI singles to left field as Nevada opened a 2-0 advantage. Nevada’s lead was short-lived as the Aztecs responded with two runs on three hits in the fourth frame to tie the contest.

Sophomores Jordan Pearce and Fennell hit back-to-back singles in the bottom fourth before senior Justin Hazard reclaimed Nevada’s lead. The catcher hit a sacrifice bunt, scoring Pearce from third to make it 3-2 in favor of Nevada. Again, San Diego State responded by tying the game as sophomore Chase Calabuig hit a 1-run home run to right field.

Junior Miles Mastrobuoni doubled and Nevada put two runners in scoring position in the fifth frame. Krzmarzick scored both of them, lining a double to the right field wall as Nevada led, 5-3.

Nevada took that two-run lead into the ninth inning before the Aztecs rallied to force extra innings with two runs to tie the game. Sophomore Hunter Stratton hit an RBI sacrifice fly to score one run before sophomore Alan Trejo hit a two-out, RBI double to force extras.

After Pennington kept the Aztecs off the board in the top of the 10th, Fennell and Hazard were hit by pitch to put two runners on in the bottom 10th. Brooks then singled up the middle to score Fennell and win the game in walk-off fashion.

Nevada and San Diego State will return to action Saturday with game two at Peccole Park. First pitch is set for 6 p.m. PT.
