Final Stats

Las Vegas, Nev. -- On Friday night San José State batters pounded out seven hits and scored six runs in three and two-third innings against UNLV starter Janine Petmecky, but on Sunday they managed just four hits in six innings as the Rebels defeated the Spartans 8-0.

Unlike the first two games of the series where SJSU put runners in scoring position and then drove them in, the Spartans left six on, two in each frame, through the first three innings and eight in the game.

The Rebels on the other hand made the most of their opportunities.  They scored a run in the first on a towering infield popup, which Sharon-Renae Estrada lost in the sun.

In the second a leadoff double and a single were brought home on an RBI double from Garie Blando to make it 3-0 UNLV.

The Rebels got solo home runs in both the third and fourth to make it 5-0, which sent Spartans' starter Madison Fish to the showers.  Fish (13-5) took the loss.  In four innings she surrendered six hits, five runs, walked two while striking out three.

Katelyn Linford took over in the fifth and hit the second batter she faced.  She was then the victim of a pair of errors which led to an unearned UNLV run making it 6-0.


 

 

UNLV ended the game in the sixth with a two-out double, which scored the Rebels seventh and eighth runs of the game.

The Spartans managed four hits, their lowest total in 18 Mountain West games this year.  Jessica Madrid, Jessie Hufstetler, Estrada and Anissa Pinedo had the Spartans hits, all singles.

Petmecky pitched the entire game.  She struck out three and gave up four walks but in earning the win improved her record to 3-8.
