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).
