Nevada Softball Loses Game 2 to SJSU

Posted: Updated:

Senior Megan Sweet went 2-for-4 with an RBI in the Nevada softball team’s 12-4 loss to San Jose State on Saturday afternoon at Hixson Park.

Sweet is now eight RBI shy of tying the program’s RBI record with 10 games remaining. Brittany Puzey, whose home run record Sweet broke last weekend at UNLV, currently holds the all-time mark with 166 career RBI.

Junior McKenna Isenberg took the loss for the Wolf Pack (30-11, 8-6 MW) after going 5.0 innings and striking out three.

The Spartans showed why they are top offense in the Mountain West in yesterday’s game and they showcased it again on Saturday. SJSU led 8-0 entering the bottom of the fourth but Nevada fought back in the home half of the frame.

After senior Jasmine Jenkins led-off the inning with a walk and sophomore Jennifer Purcell singled through the right side, junior Melissa Arriaga sent a single to left center field that scored Jenkins from second and gave Nevada its first run of the game.

Sophomore Amanda Nicholas followed with a walk that loaded the bases with no one out. Both senior Amanda Weis and junior Raquel Martinez proceeded Nicholas and earned RBIs the hard way as both were hit by pitches. With the score now at 8-3, Sweet cut the Wolf Pack deficit to 8-4 on an RBI infield single.

It was all the runs Nevada could muster though as the Spartans continued to pour it on, scoring two runs in the top of the fifth and two more in the seventh.

The final game of the three-game set will take place tomorrow at 12 p.m. at Hixson Park.
