Sophomore Megan Sweet has enjoyed a good stretch of athletic accomplishment the past couple of series. After she set a new Nevada single-season doubles record at Colorado State, Sweet followed that up by setting the single-season runs record during the San Jose State series. She crossed home plate for the 46th time this season in game one, a 10-1 victory for the Wolf Pack. Sweet ranks second in the nation in doubles per game, trailing only Emilee Koerner of Notre Dame. Additionally, Sweet sits in the top-25 nationally in runs per game. She has posted a .435 batting average in her last six games, going 10-for-23 at the plate with two doubles, three runs scored and four RBI.
Thanks to a 10-1, five-inning victory over San Jose State last Friday, the Wolf Pack snapped a nine-game slide. Nevada pounded out 11 hits in the ballgame and put together a six-run, bottom of the fourth to claim the win. Amanda Weis collected her team-leading 10th home run of the season in the first inning, giving the Pack an early 3-0 lead. Karlyn Jones pitched all five innings and scattered just four hits and one earned run during her sixth pitching victory of the year.
Nevada welcomes Fresno State to Hixson Park for the final homestand of the 2014 season next weekend, beginning Thursday, May 8 at 4 p.m.
