The Pack scored the first two runs of the game in the bottom of the third inning on RBI singles from Grant Fennell and Michael Echavia.  UNLV would score the next seven runs and went on to win 7-3 to avoid the series sweep.

Rebel left fielder Grant Robbins hit a two-run homer as part of the  three-run fourth inning and first baseman Nick Ames three-run homer accounted for all the UNLV runs in the seventh.  The Pack scored a run in eighth inning on an RBI single from Echavia that scored Fennell.

Pack freshman Jake Jackson (5-1) suffered his first loss of the season allowing four runs on seven hits.  Rebel starter Chase Maddux (3-3) earned his third victory of the year surrendering two runs on seven hits in six innings on the mound.

Fennell (3-for-3,2R,RBI) led the Pack with three hits, scored twice and drove in one.  Echavia (2-for-4,2RBI) drove in two of Nevada’s runs.  Center fielder Cole Krzmarzick (2-for-3,R) added two hits and scored a run.
