The New Mexico baseball team was ousted from the Mountain West tournament losing to Nevada 9-4 in 11 innings on Friday.
With the game tied at 3-3, Wolf Pack junior shortstop Kyle Hunt hit an RBI single into right field for the go ahead run and a 4-3 lead. Fourth-seeded Nevada wasn’t done and scored five more runs in the 11th inning to upset No. 2 UNM.
The Lobos managed to score a run in the bottom of the frame for the final score of 9-4.
The loss may have knocked UNM (37-20-1) from receiving an at-large berth for an NCAA regional.
Starting pitcher Colton Thomson threw six innings, giving up two runs on five hits. He also struck out four batters and walked two.
UNM closer Victor Sanchez took the loss after allowing five runs on five hits in just two innings of work.
UNM lost its MW tourney opener to No. 3 San Diego State 11-5 on Thursday.
UNM juniors Gavin Green and Victor Perez earned PING All-West region honors, the Golf Coaches Association of America announced Wednesday.
It’s the second straight year both players have been honored.
Green tied the school record with four individual tournament wins this past year. His five career tournament wins are tied for most in program history.
Perez has been named a three-time All-Mountain West selection. He placed in the top 20 in nine of the 13 events he entered this past season.
