The UNLV baseball team experienced the thrill of a walk-off victory and the agony of defeat within hours on the last day of the Mountain West Championship.
Head Coach Stan Stolte and his Rebels were able to knock in-state rival Nevada – Reno out of the tournament by way of a walk-off home run on their home field. UNLV was designated as the home team for being the higher seed.
The win setup a championship matchup with No. 1 seed Fresno State later in the day.
UNLV was able to battle back-and-forth with the tournament’s highest seed but lost for the fifth time in seven games.
