Just one day after seeing UNLV and San Diego State score at will in both games of Tuesday's softball doubleheader, Wednesday's affair - a 2-1 Rebel win - was more of a pitcher's duel at Eller Media Stadium. The two teams combined for three runs off of 10 hits with Amanda Oliveto getting the best of SDSU's Danielle O'Toole in the circle.
The UNLV softball team and San Diego State Aztecs played a rare, midweek Mountain West doubleheader Tuesday at Eller Media Stadium. The Aztecs won the first contest, 9-8, in eight innings, while the Rebels answered back in the nightcap with a 12-9 decision. The two games did not lack in offense, as the teams combined for 56 hits - 22 of which went for extra bases, 38 runs and 35 RBI.
Just days after helping the UNLV softball team to a series win at New Mexico, Emily Haslinger was recognized as the Mountain West's Player of the Week for her offensive performance in the Land of Enchantment. This is the first weekly honor for Haslinger, who was tabbed to the all-conference team one year ago as a freshman.
The UNLV men's golf team will compete at the 2014 Mountain West Men's Golf Championship beginning on Friday, April 25, at the Catalina Course at Omni Tucson National Resort (par 71, 7,144 yards) in Tucson, Ariz.
The UNLV Rebels continue one of their toughest stretches of the 2014 season this week with six Mountain West games scheduled in a six-day period. UNLV, who just completed a three-game jaunt in Albuquerque, N.M., against the New Mexico Lobos, return to Las Vegas for a midweek doubleheader and a single contest vs. the San Diego State Aztecs this Tuesday and Wednesday, respectively.
