Feb. 7, 2005
Nevada limited previously unbeaten Cal Poly to just three hits and played flawlessly in the field as they captured their first win of the season Sunday, 2-1, to conclude the Cal Poly Tournament.
Nevada (1-5) took a 1-0 lead in the first on a solo shot by Candice Rainwater, who also pitched seven innings in getting the victory to even her record at 1-1. The Pack added one in the third on an RBI by Kaycee Wilcks, scoring Cindy Elkins.
Cal Poly (5-1) scored a run in the fifth but Nevada held off the Mustangs to take the win.
Wilcks was 2-3 for the Pack while Rainwater and Elkins had the other two Nevada hits.
Nevada travels to Tempe, Ariz., and the Arizona State Tournament this weekend with games against third-ranked UCLA, top-25 team Wisconsin, Utah State and West Coast powers Cal State Fullerton and Cal State Northridge.
