Wildcats Walk Past Rebels

April 13, 2004

Box Score

LAS VEGAS - The UNLV baseball team (22-12, 9-3 MWC) couldn't get the relief pitching it needed, as the Rebels gave up six runs in the top of the sixth inning, in what had been a 1-1 game, falling 11-2 to the University of Arizona (17-14-1, 5-4 Pac-10) on Tuesday night.

Rebel starter Matt Wagner had a solid outing as he gave up just three runs on three hits in five innings on the mound. From then on, the Rebels couldn't find the plate as the pitching staff combined for twelve walks, a hit batsman, a wild pitch and two past balls.

The Rebels picked up a run in the bottom of the first as shortstop Peter White scored on a fielder's choice ball hit by second baseman Ryan Ruiz.

The Rebels other run came in the bottom of the seventh as designated hitter Ryan Kowalski singled up the middle scoring pinch runner Zeke Parraz.

Kowalski finished the night 3-for-4 with 1 RBI while White was 2-for-4. Wagner (2-2) was charged with the loss.

For the Wildcats, first baseman Jordan Brown finished 2-for-5 with 2 RBI while second baseman John Hardy and catcher Richard Mercado each added 2RBI. Starter Koley Kolberg (5-2) picked up the win.

The same two teams will square off again tomorrow afternoon in a game that was changed to 3:00 p.m. to accommodate the Wildcat's travel schedule. There will be no radio broadcast of the game however it will be available via gametracker at
