Reno, NV ( -- The University of San Francisco (19-20) scored three runs in the top of the ninth to defeat the University of Nevada (21-17) baseball team 4-1 in a nonconference matchup at Peccole Park on Tuesday night.  The loss dropped the Wolf Pack to 21-17 while the Dons improved to 19-20.

USF took advantage of four walks in the  top of the first to take an early 1-0 lead.  Bradley Zimmer walked to start the game and eventually scored the run on a double steal.

Nevada was held without a hit and had just two batters reach base on walks until the bottom of the seventh.  With one down center fielder Brad Gerig’s fourth home run of the season was the first Pack hit of the game and tied the score at one.

In the top of the ninth two hit batters and an intentional walk loaded the bases for right fielder Derek Atkinson.  Atkinson’s two-out double to left field scored all three Dons runners and USF went on to win 4-1.

Colby Blueberg (3-2) the sixth Pack pitcher of the game suffered the loss allowing one run in 1.1 innings on the mound.  Ben Graff (2-0) earned the victory pitching 1.1 shutout innings.  Houston Hibberd (7) earned his seventh save pitching a scoreless ninth inning.
