Pack Baseball Swept by Fresno State

Posted: Updated:

Nevada scored two runs in the seventh and two in the ninth, but couldn’t rally past Fresno State on Sunday afternoon in the series finale. The Wolf Pack fell just short, 7-6, at Pete Beiden Field.

Nevada (15-18, 6-7) scored six runs on eight hits as junior Miles Mastrobuoni led the way, going 2-of-5 at the plate with two RBI and one run. Junior LHP Trenton Brooks took the loss after allowing four runs – only one of which was earned – in 4.0 innings of work.

Both teams went scoreless in the first three frames before Nevada broke the stalemate in the top of the fourth inning as sophomore Grant Fennell singled and senior Bryce Greager scored on a throwing error. The Pack’s lead was short-lived as Fresno State scored four runs on five hits in the bottom half of the inning.

Sophomore Cole Krzmarzick hit an RBI single to left field to score sophomore Jordan Pearce in the fifth before the Bulldogs plated one run in the fifth, sixth and seventh innings.

The Pack wouldn’t go away lightly, plating four runs in the final three innings to rally. Pearce scored on a wild pitch and Mastrobuoni hit an RBI single for Nevada in the seventh frame. Nevada pulled within one run in the ninth inning as Mastrobuoni hit an RBI double and redshirt freshman Keaton Smith hit an RBI single.

Nevada used three pitchers in the contest as Brooks started and logged 4.0 innings, while sophomore RHP Mark Nowaczewski and senior RHP Alex Lott each pitched two innings in relief.

Nevada returns to action on Monday with its fourth road game in as many days. The Wolf Pack will play at No. 19 UC Santa Barbara at 3 p.m. PT at Caesar Uyesaka Stadium in Santa Barbara, Calif. The Gauchos are 24-7-1 overall on the season and are ranked 19th in the latest USA Today Coaches’ Poll.
