Pack Baseball Takes Series from Air Force

Posted: Updated:

 The Nevada baseball team won its rubber match, 8-4, against Air Force on Sunday afternoon in front of 1,847 fans at Peccole Park to claim the series win. The Wolf Pack (18-20, 9-8) scored eight runs with 13 hits, including eight extra base hits, to down the Falcons in the series finale after both teams split a doubleheader on Saturday.

Senior LHP Cameron Rowland pitched five shutout innings in relief to claim his first victory of the season. The 6-foot-1 lefty allowed just two base runners on the day. At the plate, sophomore TJ Friedl went 4-of-5 with one RBI and two runs, finishing a home run short of the cycle. Junior Trenton Brooks, who started on the mound and logged 4.0 innings, also went 3-of-5 with two runs.

Air Force scored one run in the first and second innings to take an early advantage before the Wolf Pack plated four straight runs to lead 4-2 after three innings. Senior Justin Hazard hit an RBI double in the second frame and Nevada added three runs in the third inning as sophomore Jordan Pearce hit an RBI groundout and redshirt freshman Keaton Smith hit a two-RBI single up the middle.

The Falcons scored two runs on three hits in the top of the fourth to tie the game at 4-4. Nevada quickly reclaimed its lead as Brooks hit a two-out double before Friedl hit an RBI triple off the wall and stole home on the very next pitch as Nevada led, 6-4. Smith added a two-out, RBI double in the seventh inning and sophomore Cole Krzmarzick hit a two-out, RBI double to left field in the eighth inning as Nevada led 8-4.

Brooks started and allowed three earned runs and seven hits with three strikeouts in 4.0 innings pitched. Rowland entered the game in the fifth inning and shut the Falcons down, getting 15 outs with just 17 batters faced. Rowland allowed just two hits and no walks in his splendid showing.

Nevada’s seven doubles were the most it has hit in a single game all season. The Wolf Pack received multi-hit performances from Friedl (4-5), Brooks (3-5) and Smith (2-3), who also tallied a career-high three RBI.

Nevada returns to action on Tuesday, hosting UC Davis (9-23) at Peccole Park. First pitch is set for 6 p.m. PT. The Wolf Pack defeated the Aggies, 3-1, earlier this season on the road.
