Wolf Pack Baseball Swept by Fresno State
RENO, Nev. – After celebrating its Senior Day prior to first pitch, Nevada (25-23, 11-16 MW) fell to Fresno State (30-13-1, 15-7-1 MW) on Sunday afternoon 8-2. The Wolf Pack will head to Sacramento State on Tuesday for a midweek contest before traveling to San Jose State for its final conference series of the year.
Prior to the contest, Nevada honored seniors Bradley Bonnenfant, Weston Hatten, Kaleb Foster, Keaton Smith, Cooper Powell and the memory of Austin Gorrell as the Pack celebrated Senior Day.
Three opening-inning runs by the Bulldogs were enough to last them the rest of the game, as the Pack was only able to cross home plate twice. One of those runs scored came in the second inning, thanks to an RBI single that scored Otis Statum Jr. after his double.
Seamons led the way for the Pack with three hits on the afternoon, followed by Marco Valenzuela who recorded two knocks.
Jake Jackson, who started the game for the Pack, suffered the loss. The best pitching performance of the day came from Cooper Powell who tossed the last three frames allowing only one hit and tied a career-high four strikeouts.
Nevada’s final run scored of the day came from the bat of Hatten, as he drove in Seamons on a sacrifice fly in the ninth.
The Pack will look for a huge weekend in San Jose as they face the Spartans and look to make one last push toward the Mountain West tournament. John Ramey will call all of the action next week on 94.1 FM/1450 AM.
