PULLMAN, Wash. - Tanner Peters pitched UNLV past Washington State 4-1 with a complete game in nonconference baseball, Friday night at Bailey-Brayton Field.
Peters (8-3) allowed one unearned run on four hits, struck out four and walked two in going the distance for his second-consecutive outing.
"We faced a really good pitcher tonight," Cougar Head Coach Donnie Marbut said. "I thought we squared some balls up, but did not take advantage of the few opportunities we had."
The Rebels (29-18) scored a run in the first against Adam Conley (5-6) on a hit batter, a single, a ground out and a sacrifice fly. UNLV added three runs, two unearned, on two hits aided by an error and a passed ball in the sixth.
Washington State (19-21) scored its lone run in the eighth. A walk to Collin Slaybaugh and an error put runners at first and second with no one out. A ground out put runners at second and third and Cody Bartlett plated Slaybaugh to account for the final score.
The series continues Saturday with first pitch scheduled for 5:30 p.m.
