About Pacific

The Tigers have lost eight of their last nine, including two of three to UC Santa Barbara last weekend … The Tigers are a woeful 4-13 at home this season … UOP lost 10-0 to Nevada at Peccole back in mid-March … Today’s starter, Andrew Mintun has thrown just 3 2/3 innings all season.

About Nevada

The Pack moved into second place in the Western Athletic Conference after taking three of four, inlcuding Sunday’s 11-1 win over New Mexico State in a game shortened to 6 1/2 innings because of the 10-run rule … Bowman is on a seven-game hit streak, while Kort, Rodriguez and Walsh have hit in six straight. Hale and Rodland have five-gamers in progress.
