Fincher Hits Walk-Off Bomb to Beat Colorado State
RENO, Nev. -- It took a few more innings on Sunday, but the University of Nevada softball team beat Colorado State in walk-off fashion for the second straight day, topping the Rams 5-4 in 12 innings.

Senior Erin Jones is cruising through one of her best seasons in a Wolf Pack uniform. Jones is batting at a .427 clip this year, ranking her second in the Mountain West and in the top-40 nationally. In her last nine starts, Jones is hitting .556 thanks to collecting 15 hits, including four doubles and a homerun. During that stretch, she has posted five multi-hit games and went 3-for-3 at the plate in the team’s most recent outing against Boise State.

Sophomore shortstop Megan Sweet is making a name for herself on the national stage, currently leading the nation in doubles per game. Through 40 games this year, Sweet has collected 18 two-baggers and is averaging 0.45 doubles per game, edging Taylor Rager of Ball State and Victoria Valos of George Washington for the national lead. Additionally, Sweet’s 44 runs scored this season and 1.1 runs per game average ranks her in the top-20 in the nation.
