RENO, Nev. - The University of Nevada (17-15) baseball team lost a nonconference game to San Francisco (17-15) on Tuesday afternoon at Peccole Park by a score of 4-1. The Wolf Pack has lost four in a row and stand at 17-15 on the season while the Dons improved to 17-15. USF won both meetings with the Pack this season.
USF scored two runs in the third inning and a single run in the sixth to take a 3-0 advantage. The Pack’s run came on a RBI single from right fielder Brooks Klein in the bottom of the seventh inning that scored pincher hitter Brad Gerig after he started the inning with a single.
