RENO, Nev. - Trenton Brooks ripped a two-run single as part of a three-run ninth inning as the Nevada baseball team walked off against Pacific on Tuesday at Peccole Park.
Nevada improved to 7-9 with the comeback win while Pacific fell to 8-11.
Trailing 6-4 entering the bottom of the ninth, Nevada made a charge with back-to-back doubles by Austin Byrler and Kewby Meyer to open the ninth and cut the deficit to one. Jordan Devencenzi was hit by a pitch to give Nevada runners on first and second with nobody out.
Adam Whitt, Nevada's third pitcher of the game, got the victory and improved to 1-2 on the year. Bryce Lombardi (0-1) took the loss for Pacific.
Pacific scored an unearned run in the first to open the scoring but the Pack roared back with four runs in the bottom of the frame. After a single, walk, fielder's choice and an error, Ryan Teel delivered a two-run single to right-center to give Nevada the lead. The next batter, Bryce Greager, ripped a double to left to give Nevada a 4-1 lead.
That score held until the fourth, when the Tigers scored four of their own - three of those runs unearned after an error to open the frame.
It was a 5-4 game from that point until the ninth, when Pacific scored a run on a wile pitch to push the lead to 6-4.
Nevada will step away from Mountain West play this weekend with a four-game series at Hawai`i that begins Friday. Nevada returns home to play host to Air Force in a Mountain West series at Peccole Park beginning March 21.
