Nevada Baseball Sweeps SDSU

Posted: Updated:

The Nevada baseball team opened a 12-run lead early and held on for a 13-9 victory at San Diego State on Sunday, completing a series sweep at Tony Gwynn Stadium. The Wolf Pack improves to 23-20 overall and 13-8 in Mountain West play with its fifth straight victory.

For the first time in program history, Nevada has swept a pair of three-game series against the Aztecs in a single season. The Pack swept SDSU at Peccole Park in April before following with a road sweep this weekend in San Diego. Nevada has now swept the Aztecs in four straight three-game regular season series.

The Pack won 8-5 on Friday and junior RHP Trevor Charpie threw a one-hit shutout in a 5-0 win on Saturday prior to today’s lopsided victory. Nevada scored 13 runs on 15 hits after opening a 12-run lead in the fifth inning. Head coach T.J. Bruce and Nevada tallies its third sweep and its sixth series victory of the season.

Junior LHP Trenton Brooks took the win today, allowing two earned runs with four hits and five strikeouts in 6.0 innings pitched. Sophomore TJ Friedl went 3-of-6 at the plate with three runs to lead Nevada, while junior Justin Bridgman (2-6), junior Miles Mastrobuoni (2-6), Brooks (2-2), senior Bryce Greager (2-4) and freshman Kaleb Foster (2-5) had multi-hit games.

Greager opened the scoring for the Pack with a two-run home run in the second inning for his third homer of the season. Nevada added three runs in the third and fourth innings to open an 8-1 lead. Brooks hit an RBI single and the Pack scored two runs on an error in the third frame. Bridgman hit an RBI single and Nevada again plated two runs on an error in the fourth inning.

Nevada then blew the doors open in the fifth inning with five runs on six hits to open a 13-1 lead. Greager, sophomore Jordan Pearce and Foster hit consecutive RBI singles to cap the damage in the inning as the Pack batted around the lineup.

San Diego State showed fight and rallied with the game’s final eight runs, but the Pack’s early lead was too much to overcome.

Nevada will return to action Tuesday at Pacific, completing a four-game road swing. First pitch between the Wolf Pack and Tigers (17-23) is set for 6:30 p.m. PT at Klein Family Field in Stockton, Calif. The game will be streamed live on theW.tv and will also be broadcast on the Wolf Pack Radio Network.
