March 31, 2012
RENO, Nev. - University of Nevada (15-11) junior right fielder Brooks Klein hit for the cycle on Saturday afternoon as the Wolf Pack defeated BYU (11-11) 9-3 on a cold and windy day at Peccole Park. The two teams played through rain and snow to complete the three-game series that the Pack won 2-1. In the bottom of the fifth inning the game was delayed for 22 minutes as a result of rain.
With the victory the Wolf Pack improved to 15-11 while BYU now stands at 11-11.
Nevada took control of the game from the start scoring six runs in the bottom of the first inning. The Pack took advantage of Cougar starter Adam Miller who was unable to find the strike zone as he walked three and hit one in the first inning before being lifted from the game. First baseman Kewby Meyer doubled home two runs as part of the big inning.
After being hit by pitch in the first inning Klein singled in the second, doubled in the fifth, blasted a two-run homer in the seventh and completed the cycle with an RBI triple in the eighth inning. In addition to his four hits he scored twice and drove in three. Klein was the only Nevada player that collected multiple hits in the game.
While Klein was collecting hits Pack starter Tom Jameson was mowing down the BYU hitters. Jameson (4-1) allowed one unearned run on three hits in six innings on the mound and earned the victory to improve to 4-1.
Miller (1-2) was tagged with the loss allowing four runs and did not retire a batter in the game.
BYU first baseman Brock Whitney (2-for-4,R,) and Austin Hall (2-for-3,2RBI) led the Cougars with two hits each. Hall drove in two of BYU's three runs in the game.
Nevada travels to Pacific on Monday for a 6:00 p.m. contest in Stockton, Calif. Tuesday the Pack play an exhibition game with the Reno Aces, the Triple A affiliate of the Arizona Diamondbacks, at Aces Ballpark with first pitch scheduled for 6:00 p.m.
