Nevada Unable to Sweep Texas State

Posted: Updated:

Junior Trenton Brooks hit a two-run home run and struck out seven batters in 6.1 innings, but it wasn’t enough as Nevada fell short in its series finale to Texas State. The Bobcats avoided the sweep with a 3-2 victory on Sunday at Bobcat Ballpark.

Nevada (15-14) will settle for a series victory at Texas State (21-12) after posting a 6-3 win on Friday and a 17-6 win on Saturday. The Wolf Pack has won four straight three-game series.

Sunday’s series finale featured a pitcher’s duel between Nevada’s Brooks and Texas State’s senior LHP Cory Geisler. Both teams were held scoreless in the first six innings, which featured just a combined three hits.

The Bobcats broke the stalemate in the top of the seventh inning, scoring three runs on five hits with two Pack errors. Nevada then trimmed the deficit to one run, 3-2, with one swing of the bat in the top of the eighth inning. Junior Justin Bridgman hit a single before Brooks hit a two-run blast for his second home run of the season. Nevada’s rally fell short as the Bobcats maintained its one-run advantage.

Brooks led Nevada in both facets of the game, going 1-of-4 with two RBI and one runs. On the mound, Brooks allowed three runs on five hits with seven strikeouts in 6.1 innings of work.

Nevada will return to Peccole Park on Tuesday, hosting Sacramento State (18-12). First pitch between the Wolf Pack and Hornets is set for 6 p.m. PT.
