Nevada shortstop Tyler Bosetti was named the Mountain West player of the week Monday for the first time in his Wolf Pack career.

This comes after Nevada's three-game sweep against conference-leading San Diego State in which the Wolf Pack out-scored the Aztecs. 42-12. It was Nevada's first series conference series sweep of the year and moved the team to 12-9 in MW play and 15-16 overall.

Bosetti batted .571 (8-for-14) and slugged 1.571 in three games against the Aztecs. He led the Wolf Pack with eight hits, nine runs, and eight RBIs while blasting four home runs along with a triple.

The Vacaville, Calif., came up just a double shy of the cycle in Nevada's 14-4 win in Friday's series opener. Bosetti capped off the doubleheader going 2-for-3 with his second home run of the series, a three-run shot that was part of the Wolf Pack's 10-run fifth inning in the 13-2 victory.

On Sunday, Bosetti went 3-for-5 with two homers and four RBIs in the 15-7 win. Once again, he came up with the clutch long ball, pounding a three-run shot in Nevada's five-run seventh, which broke open a one-run game.

Through 31 games this season, Bosetti ranks among the top of the Wolf Pack's offensive categories, batting .333 with 44 hits and 14 doubles, 26 RBIs and 30 runs scored.

Nevada continues its seven-game home stand with a pivotal series this weekend, hosting first-place UNLV for a three-game series at Peccole Park. The series opens with a doubleheader May 8 with first pitch scheduled for 1 p.m. and the nightcap set for a 5 p.m. start. Sunday's finale is set for 1 p.m.

Bosetti's honor is the second for the Wolf Pack this season, as Dario Gomez was honored on April 12.
