Box Score

LAS VEGAS, Nev. - Freshman right fielder Chris Dabbs went 3-for-4 with three runs and a season-high four RBI as the New Mexico baseball team pounded first-place UNLV, 11-4, Saturday afternoon at Earl E. Wilson Stadium. The Lobos evened the series with the win, and jumped back into second place with a 12-5 league mark (16-20-1 overall), while UNLV fell to 25-15 (12-4 Mountain West). San Diego State lost to Utah earlier in the day, 7-6, to fall into third place at 10-5.

The Lobos fell behind early as UNLV scored three runs in the first off UNM starter Danny Ray Herrera. UNM came right back with two runs in the second on Jeff Grady's team-leading seventh homer of the season, but Herrera gave up one more run in the second before getting pulled in the third inning.

Dabbs drove in his first run of the game with a sacrifice fly in the fourth, cutting the margin to 4-3. As reliever Karsten Gaarder cooled down the Rebel bats, the Lobos heated up with two runs in the fifth and one in the sixth to take a 6-4 lead. Gaarder (1-2) retired his first 10 batters and only allowed two hits in 5 1/3 innings of action to earn his first win of the season.

Sean Murray, who collected two hits in the game, tied the game at 4 with an RBI single in the fifth, followed by a Daniel Stovall sacrifice fly. Matt Young upped the lead to two runs with an run-scoring single in the sixth.

UNM broke the game open in the ninth with five runs and two homers. Ryan Barba hit a solo blast with one out and Dabbs hit a three-run shot later in the inning. In between the homers, Stovall knocked in his second run of the game with a single.

New Mexico and UNLV will complete the three-game series tomorrow at 1 p.m PT. Live stats and audio will be available at www.GoLobos.com.
