The Hustlin’ Rebels went 1-2 over the weekend at the 2012 Kleberg Bank College Classic in Corpus Christi, Texas, to stretch their record to 3-4 for the season.
After losing 3-1 to Texas A&M-Corpus Christi on Friday, UNLV defeated Utah 9-2 on Saturday. On Sunday, UNLV dropped the final game of the weekend against Nebraska, 8-7.
Senior pitcher Joe Robinson (0-1), who was drafted by the Los Angeles Dodgers last year but opted to return for his last season as a Rebel, pitched six strong innings, striking out three and surrendering only one earned run in the loss to A&M-Corpus Christi.
In the second game of the Classic, UNLV recorded a season-high 19 hits as the surging offense helped freshman pitcher Zak Qualls (2-0) to a perfect record on the season. Qualls pitched 6.1 innings, striking out seven.
In the final game of the weekend, Nebraska rallied from behind with two outs in the ninth inning for the come-behind victory.
UNLV will return home Tuesday to host Cal State Bakersfield at 6:05 p.m. at Wilson Stadium. The Rebels will enjoy home field advantage for the next 13 games before hitting the road in late March.
