Home games in bold
The University of Nevada baseball was swept by Mountain West foe San Diego State last weekend in San Diego.
The Wolf Pack lost 8-1 on Sunday, 5-4 on Saturday and 2-0 on Friday.
Nevada falls to 17-14 overall and 5-7 in MW play, while the Aztecs improve to 17-15 and 7-5.
Nevada played San Francisco on Tuesday, although results were not available at press time.
On Sunday, with the game tied at 1, SDSU scored seven unanswered runs. The Aztecs scored twice in the bottom of the third without collecting a hit.
A costly Pack error led to four unearned runs by SDSU in the sixth and a solo home run in the seventh completed the scoring.
Pack starter Tom Jameson (0-6) lost his sixth game in seven starts giving up seven runs, three earned in six innings. Ryan Doran (5-2) earned the win for SDSU allowing one run on five hits in 7.2 innings on the mound.
Five Pack players had a hit in the game and Brett Jones’ double scored the only run for Nevada.
Matt Munoz finished with a game-high two hits for SDSU and drove in one. Ryan Muno and Danny Sheehan had two RBI each for the Aztecs.
On Saturday, Nevada scored the first run of the game on an RBI double from shortstop Kyle Hunt in the top of the second inning but SDSU tied it with a single run in the bottom of the third.
Jones hit his first home run of the season in fourth to give Nevada a 2-1 lead. Hunt’s single in the sixth inning made it 4-1 but SDSU closed within a run after a two-run bottom of the sixth.
Tyler France, however, blasted a home run in the bottom of the eighth inning tied the game at four. With one down in the bottom of the ninth inning, SDSU second baseman Tim Zier was hit by pitch on an 0-2 count and first baseman Ryan Muno followed with a single through the left side.
Pack closer Michael Fain came on in relief, but catcher Jake Romanski singled to right field to score the winning run.
Sean Prihar (2-1) suffered the loss allowing the run in the ninth. SDSU closer Bubba Derby (3-1) retired the only batter he faced in the top of the ninth and earned his third win of the season.
On Friday, the Aztecs scored a run without the benefit of hit in the first inning and Michael Cederoth (2-4) had all the runs he would need. The big righty struck out a career-high 14 and did not allow a run on four hits in his eight innings on the mound. SDSU scored its second run in the third inning to make the final score 2-0.
The Aztecs brought in closer Bubba Derby in the ninth inning, but he struggled walking Austin Byler and hitting Brooks Klein. After a sacrifice bunt by Jones, Derby struck out the next two Pack hitters to record his seventh save of the season.
