Scouting SJSU: The Spartans are coming off a 6-0 win

over Cal-State Monterey Bay … San Jose is a lot like

Hawai’i in the sense that its hitters will use the

entire field and don’t have a lot of power … Hall

has 16 stolen bases in 19 attempts, Pierson is 10 of

15 and Angel is 19 of 27 … The Spartans have made 27

errors in 44 games.

Scouting Nevada: The Pack didn’t play Tuesday because

of the death of freshman pitcher Steven Masten … The

Pack took two of three from Utah Valley State, winning

the final two games of the series … Bowman and

Scobee remain the only two hitters over .300. Bowman

is at .390 and Scobee is at .350 … Scobee (35) and

Walsh (30) lead the team in RBI.
