Nevada Baseball Drops MW Series to Fresno St.

Posted: Updated:

The University of Nevada (3-8, 1-2 MW) baseball team dropped the final game of three-game Mountain West series 9-5 to Fresno State (6-5, 2-1) at Pete Beiden Field Sunday afternoon.  The Bulldogs won the three-game MW series taking games one and three.  The Wolf Pack is now 3-8 on the season and 1-2 in conference play while the Bulldogs improved to 6-5 and 2-1 in the MW.

Nevada plays at Saint Mary’s (7-3) on Tuesday at 2:00 p.m. before hosting San Diego State in a three-game MW series next weekend.

Trailing 1-0 after an inning Nevada got a sacrifice fly from center fielder Cole Krzmarzick in the top of the third to tie the score but FS moved ahead 2-1 in the bottom of the inning.  The Pack once again responded with an RBI single from catcher Marco Valenzuela in the top of the fourth to even the score at 2-2.

FS put together a five-run bottom of the fourth inning and never trailed the rest of the game to win 9-5.  The Bulldogs scored the five runs on four hits and were aided by one Pack error.

Keaton Smith’s team-leading third home run of the season in the top of the sixth closed the gap to 7-4.  Smith was a double short of hitting for the cycle going 3-for-4 with two runs scored and drove in a pair.

FS scored a single run in the sixth and each team scored single runs in the seventh to make the final score 9-5.

Grant Ford (1-2) suffered the loss allowing seven runs on six hits in four innings on the mound.  J.J. Santa Cruz (1-1) evened his record with his first win of the season.
