RENO, Nev. – Running into a strong offense, the University of North Dakota lost a pair of games in a doubleheader against Nevada on Friday afternoon in the first day of the Wolf Pack Classic. UND lost the first game, 9-1, before falling, 21-4, in the nightcap.

In the first outing, North Dakota kept the Wolf Pack to just three runs through the first four innings, but a six-run inning in the bottom of the fifth sealed the 9-1 victory for Nevada. UND scored its lone run in the fourth inning when Johnson homered to right field to lead off the inning.

UND recorded a total of five hits in the first contest, with two of them coming off the bat of Nicole Babrowski. Freshman Kaylin VanDomelen was in the circle for UND, pitching 4.2 innings, giving up seven hits and striking out six.

Nevada’s offense was the story of the second game, as the Wolf Pack put up 21 runs on 11 hits. The offensive blitz started with a 12-run inning by Nevada in the first, followed by four runs in the second and five in the third.

North Dakota scored two runs in both the second and third innings, but it wouldn’t be enough to erase the deficit by the end of the fifth inning. A triple by Babrowski in the second scored both Emily Bell and Elizabeth Cudney, and a two-run homer by Kim Granata scored D Jantzer, who singled to lead off the third.

UND recorded five more hits in the contest, with Babrowski getting two of the five. Megan Hedstrom started in the circle for UND, pitching 1.2 innings, before Sophie Pratt came in for relief.

Returning to the diamond on Saturday, UND will play UC Davis at 10 a.m., before taking on Nevada for a third and final time at 3 p.m.
