Final Stats

RUSTON, La. – Sophomore Karlyn Jones won her eighth straight decision with a five-hit shutout that gave Nevada a series win over Louisiana Tech on Saturday.

Jones went the distance in the rubber match of the series, scattering five hits and walking one while striking out seven to improve to 9-4 on the year. Nevada improved to 21-31 overall and evened it’s Western Athletic Conference record at 9-9. Louisiana Tech fell to 20-28 and 7-10 in the WAC.

The Lady Techsters won the first game of the day 10-2 in six innings.

By virtue of Nevada’s series-opening win on Friday and other results around the WAC on Friday evening, Nevada is assured of qualifying for the Western Athletic Conference Championships, which will be held May 9-12 in Las Cruces, N.M. This marks the first time Nevada has made the WAC tournament since the 2010 season.

In game two, Nevada took an early lead with a solo home run by Lauren Lastrapes in the first inning. The Pack added three more in the second on an RBI single by Chelsea Venable, a bases-loaded walk by Chelsea Barilli and a sacrifice fly by Lastrapes. The Pack made it 5-0 in the fourth on an RBI single by Sam Puzey.

Meanwhile, Jones was cruising as she allowed two baserunners in an inning only one time and was in control throughout.

In the first game, Nevada led 2-1 with two outs in the bottom of the fifth inning. But an infield single off Nevada starter Bailey Brewer (2-10) opened the door for two runs to score to give the Lady Techsters the lead at 3-2. In the sixth, Louisiana Tech erupted for seven runs on seven hits and an error to get the win.

Nevada will return home for its final series of the season next weekend when BYU comes to Hixson Park for a three-game set. The teams will play a single game on Friday before a doubleheader on Senior Day on Saturday.
