Final Stats

LAS CRUCES, N.M. – Trailing 5-0 in the third inning, the Nevada softball team put a six-run rally together and would eventually go on to an 8-7 win over New Mexico State on Saturday at the NM State Softball Complex.

Nevada dropped the nightcap of the doubleheader 12-4 but took the series victory to improve to 16-28 overall and 6-6 in WAC play. The defending WAC champion Aggies fell to 20-24 and 1-11 in league play. The doubleheader was played in miserable conditions – sustained wins around 35 mph with gusts over 60 mph.

In the first game of the day, The Aggies scored five times off Nevada starter Bailey Brewer in the first two innings before the Wolf Pack got the bats going. Nevada loaded the bases on singles by Chelsea Barilli, Karley Hopkins and Caylin Campbell and later got an RBI single from Sara Parsons, a bases-loaded walk by Sam Puzey and an RBI single by Chelsea Venable before a two-run double by Emily Seidel tied the game at 5. Barilli then gave Nevada the lead with an RBI single, her second hit of the inning.

But the Aggies chased Brewer in the bottom of the third with two runs. Karlyn Jones came on in relief and stabilized the game for Nevada.

Trailing 7-6 in the fifth, Puzey homered to center to tie the game.

In the sixth, Barilli doubled and with one out, Campbell doubled her in for what would prove to be the game-winning run.

Jones was brilliant in relief. She tossed five shutout innings, scattering six hits with five strikeouts and no walks. She improved to 7-4 on the year and won her sixth straight decision after starting 1-4. In WAC play, Jones is 4-0 with a 1.52 ERA.

In game two, Nevada jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the first on an RBI double by Lauren Lastrapes. The Wolf Pack made it 2-0 when Puzey crushed her second home run of the day, a no-doubter to left.

But things began to unravel in the bottom of the second as the Aggies took a 4-2 lead. They added one more in the third and two in the fifth to make it 7-2.

Nevada mounted a small comeback in the sixth, scoring twice – a single by Puzey and a Venable groundout – before bringing the tying run to the plate after singles by Seidel and Barilli. But Hopkins grounded out and the Aggies would score five times in the bottom of the inning to end it.

Nevada will return home to play host to nationally ranked Hawaii in a three-game set beginning Friday at Hixson Park.
