RENO, Nev. - Nevada's seven-game win streak came to an abrubt halt here today as 25th-ranked Washington exploded for 36 runs in taking the non-conference double-header, 22-1 and 14-0, at Idlewild Park before 310 fans.
The Pack (21-23) managed just nine hits and allowed 38 hits by Washington (24-15). In game one, the Huskies jumped out to a 4-0 lead in the first inning and then used an 11-hit attack in scoring 14 runs in the second stanza to cruise to the victory. They added two runs each in the fourth and fifth innings. Nevada scored its lone run in the fifth on an RBI double by Brittany Lorenzen, scoring Kari Stockstill who had reached base on a fielder's choice, to make it 22-1.
Tiffany Hoeft took the loss (4-8) in allowing eight hits and 10 runs, nine of them earned, in only one inning of work.
In the second game, Washington scored twice in the second and once in the third but added three in the fourth and eight in the fifth to take the nightcap by shutting out the Pack, 14-0. Jordan McPherson got the loss (11-7) in going three-and-two-thirds innings in allowing eight hits and six runs, all earned.
Washington had 10 home runs in the two games and six stolen bases.
Nevada resumes WAC play at San Jose State next Friday, April 29, for a single-game and again on Saturday, April 30, for an afternoon double-header.
