Junior RHP Trevor Charpie tossed a complete game, one-hit shutout to lead Nevada (22-20, 12-8) past San Diego State on Saturday afternoon. The Wolf Pack clinched a series victory at Tony Gwynn Stadium, riding Charpie for nine innings of stellar play in a 5-0 victory.
A 6-foot-1 righty, Charpie led the Wolf Pack to its first shutout win of the season. The Saddleback College product allowed just five base runners, allowing one hit, two walks and two hit by pitch en route to 27 outs with 31 batters faced. Charpie improves to 4-3 on the season while lowering his ERA to 4.04 with his second complete game of the year.
Nevada improves its win streak to four games, while notching its sixth series victory of the season. The Wolf Pack has now won five straight games against the Aztecs this season. As a team, Nevada’s one hit allowed is the fewest it has ever allowed in Mountain West play and its fewest since April 17, 2010, when the Pack allowed just one hit in a 22-0 shutout win against Seattle.
The Pack opened an early 3-0 lead in the fourth inning. Junior Trenton Brooks hit an RBI single to center field, scoring junior Justin Bridgman from second base. Nevada loaded the bases later in the inning before freshman Kaleb Foster reached on an error, allowing two runs to come home.
Nevada added two runs in the sixth inning to take a 5-0 lead. Junior Miles Mastrobuoni hit a leadoff double, advanced to third and scored on a wild pitch. Brooks followed with a single and then scored on sophomore Jordan Pearce’s RBI double off the right field wall.
Charpie dazzled on the mound and led the Wolf Pack to its first shutout of the season and its first since a 4-0 win at Creighton last season on May 9, 2015. Charpie threw 60 strikes in 106 total pitches. He allowed one hit in the second inning before keeping the Aztecs hitless from then on out. San Diego State only had two base runners reach second in the entire game.
At the plate, Nevada scored five runs on eight hits. Brooks led the Wolf Pack, going 2-of-4 with an RBI and two runs. Bridgman and Mastrobuoni also each went 2-of-4 with one run.
The Wolf Pack will go for the sweep on Sunday with first pitch set for 1 p.m. PT at Tony Gwynn Stadium. The game will be broadcast live on the Mountain West Network.
