Nevada Wins Elimination Game to Stay Alive

The Wolf Pack beats The San Jose State Spartans 4-0 to play another day in the tough elimination bracket of the Mountain West Baseball Tournament. The Spartans were shutout after scoring only one run in their previous game. Their modus operandi has been winning one out of three games all year and their record of 19-38 echos that.

Nevada Beats San Jose State 4-0

The win keeps the Wolf Pack alive and breathing while the Spartans have been removed from life support and start planning for next year. The Spartans had ten hits but none at a big moment to plate some runs. I would attribute that to Nevada's starting pitcher, Jason Deitrich, who went the distance and gave up only one walk to go along with the ten hits. You look at his line and you'd say he definitely didn't dominate but he did keep the Spartans from scoring and that's all you need. The Spartans' surprise starter was Myles Richard who went three innings giving up four earned runs on eight hits. An error by the defense and a wild pitch didn't help his cause either. The Pack was led by designated hitter Ryan Teel who went 3 for 4 with an RBI and two runs. Nevada plays an unknown opponent in their next game in the elimination bracket.
