Utah Tech baseball took a tough loss to the Rebels of UNLV on Tuesday.

Here is the press release from UT Athletics Media Relations: (full article)

"Utah Tech closed out its home heavy opening stretch of the 2024 season on the wrong end of a 15-1 loss to UNLV on Tuesday afternoon at Bruce Hurst Field.

UNLV (7-1) scored runs in five of its first offensive frames, including a seven-run sixth inning, to open up a commanding 13-0 lead.

The Trailblazers (1-8), who were held hitless and only mustered four total base runners over the first four innings, got their first hit of the game on a Petey Soto Jr. one-out double in the home fifth.

Utah Tech managed to avoid the shutout three innings later when Ethan He connected for a pinch-hit solo home run with one out in the eighth. Levi Randall accounted for the Blazers' lone other safety with a sharp single to left field later in the eighth frame.

Utah Tech will now head out on an eight-game road swing, which begins this weekend with a three-game series at Wichita State."
