ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - The New Mexico baseball team fell to Kent State, 15-3, on Opening Day Friday afternoon at Isotopes Park in the Ultimate Dugout Baseball Fiesta Tournament.

The Golden Flashes (1-1) used an eight-run fifth inning and collected 16 hits in the game to defeat the Lobos. KSU jumped out to a 3-0 advantage in the top of the third, but the Lobos also scored in the bottom of the inning on a Sean Murray (Sr., Albuquerque, N.M.) RBI double to right-center field that cut the lead to 3-1.

Kent State then scored eight runs in the fifth to put the game out of reach for UNM, capped by Kurt Eichorn's three-run double. The Flashes added two runs in the sixth and seventh innings.
