A solo home run by Pack right fielder Mike Echavia in the bottom of the fifth and Nevada led 2-1.  AF took the lead with three runs in the top of the sixth to move in front 4-2.  Echavia’s double in the seventh scored Jordan Pearce from first after he had walked to get the Pack within a run at 4-3.

Falcon infielder Bradley Haslam’s fourth home run of the season was a three-run blast in the top of the eighth that made the final score 7-3.

Nevada stranded 13 runners in the game and Air Force 10.
