The Nevada baseball team’s longest win streak in 20 seasons was snapped in Friday’s series opener at New Mexico. The Wolf Pack suffered a 5-4 setback at Santa Ana Star Field, ending an 11-game win streak.

Nevada (28-21, 16-9) and UNM (33-18, 18-7) were tied after six innings before the Lobos scored the winning run in the seventh frame. Juniors Justin Bridgman and Miles Mastrobuoni each tallied three hits to lead the Pack, while senior LHP Christian Stolo started and allowed five runs on 10 hits in 6.2 innings of work.

The Pack entered the game with the longest win streak in the nation out of 295 Division I teams. Nevada’s 11-game win streak was its most since 1996 and ranked tied for the fifth longest streak in program history. New Mexico handed Nevada its first loss since April 23.

UNM scored two runs in the first inning and never trailed in the series opener. Nevada tied the game in the third inning as Mastrobuoni drove in two runs with a two-RBI single up the middle. Junior Trenton Brooks hit an RBI groundout in the fifth and senior Justin Hazard hit an RBI double in the sixth inning, but Nevada never pulled in front.

The Lobos loaded the bases and scored the game-winning run with an RBI single in the seventh inning. Stolo took the loss on the mound for Nevada while striking out five batters. Sophomore RHP Mark Nowaczewski pitched 1.1 scoreless innings with a pair of strikeouts.

Nevada scored four runs on 11 hits. Mastrobuoni led the Pack with three hits and two RBI while Bridgman added three hits and one run. Hazard also went 2-of-3 with one run and one RBI and sophomore Jordan Pearce went 2-of-4 with one run.

The Wolf Pack will look to level the series on Saturday with first pitch set for 5 p.m. PT at Santa Ana Star Field in Albuquerque, N.M.
