Junior Jake Jackson pitched a fantastic seven innings for the Wolf Pack, but Nevada (0-5) couldn’t finish against Oregon (2-4) for the second game in a row, falling 3-2. The Pack will look to grab its first victory of the year in its series-finale with the Ducks tomorrow at 1 p.m.
Jackson put together one of the best outings of his career, finishing with seven innings pitched, six hits allowed, three strikeouts and only one earned run allowed.
Nevada put together its best offensive inning in the third frame, as Joshua Zamora and Dillan Shrum each found their way on base with two outs. Wyatt Tilley then doubled to right field to score both and give Nevada a 2-0 advantage.
The Ducks would get one back in the fourth, but Nevada would hold its lead through five innings. An unfortunate error in the sixth frame extended the inning for the Ducks, where they later scored two runs on a two-out double to left field. That would give them a 3-2 lead that they held the rest of the way.
Following Jackson’s seven innings, the Pack bullpen used three arms to record three outs, as Shane Gustafson, Clayton Westrope and Jordan Jackson combined to pitch a shutout eighth. Westrope registered two of the outs while Jackson struckout the opposing batter with the bases loaded to end the frame.
Tomorrow’s series finale will be broadcast on the Pac-12+ network, with a radio call by Eric Goss available on CBS Radio 94.1 FM and on the TuneIn app.
