About Nevada: The Pack had its five-game win streak snapped by arch-rival UNLV on Tuesday afternoon. Nevada has won six of its last eight. After losing its first five, Nevada has won 12 of its last 16 ... Scurry wasn't sharp in his last outing, but still went five innings to pick up the win ... Kort has an 11-game hit streak. He's hitting .378 with three homers in that span. Bowman and Ciarlo have hit in four straight games apiece.

About Fresno State: The Bulldogs, picked to win the Western Athletic Conference this year, had to sweep a doubleheader against Hawaii to earn a split in its conference-opening series ... Fresno State has struggled at the plate, hitting just .261 as a team ... The Bulldogs are 9-4 at home, and have proven starters in Tanner Scheppers (3-2, 1.89), Justin Miller (3-0, 2.05) and Clayton Allison (1-2, 3.82).
