Western Athletic Conference Pitcher of the Year Ryan Shopshire, making his first appearance since being suspended for the weekend series against the Wolfpack, went 7.2 innings to pick up his fifth win of the season. Senior Anthony Vega closed out the final inning and a third for his ninth save of the year.
San Jose State scored at least a run in each of the first four innings. In the third, the home team Spartans slugged back-to-back home runs by Bellows and junior Corey Valine.
The Wolfpack made a slight run late in the game, scoring two runs in the top of the eighth to get withing two, but Vega shut down the threat.
