LAS VEGAS, Nev. - The Lobos' baseball team got shutout 8-0 in game one of a three-game conference tiff with UNLV Friday night.
Neither team had scored going into the fifth until UNLV opened things up with four runs in the bottom of the inning. UNLV's center fielder Trevor Kirk scored the first run in the inning with an RBI single off Lobos' starting left-hander Rudy Jaramillo. Scott Dysinger followed Kirk with an RBI single of his own, and designated hitter Brandon Bayardi rounded out the inning with a two-run double to left to put the rebels up 4-0.
The hits were there for the Lobos but, unfortunately, the runs were not, which is a theme that has recurred throughout the season for the young team. The Lobos threatened in the second inning when Luke Campbell and John Twichell were on second and third with two outs, but UNLV's starting pitcher Tanner Peters got UNM's Trey Porras to pop out to end the inning.
UNLV's Peters won his sixth game of the season, as he threw a complete-game shutout while allowing seven hits to UNM. UNM falls to 13-30 (7-9, MWC) on the season while UNLV improves to 26-10 (5-10, MWC).
The Lobos' will match up again with the Rebels at 8 p.m. MT tomorrow night for game two of the three-game series in Las Vegas.
