GOVERNOR’S SERIES PRESENTED BY NV ENERGY:  This weekend’s three-game MW series with UNLV is part of the Governor’s Series Presented by NV Energy.  Three points will be  awarded to the winner of the season series with the Rebels.

On October 8, 2012 Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval announced the launch of the Governor’s Series, presented by NV Energy. This historic, new competition establishes a formal head-to-head athletic and academic challenge between longtime rivals — the UNLV Rebels and the Nevada Wolf Pack. The all-encompassing competition will annually crown one school the winner of the Governor’s Series.

UNLV currently leads 28.5 to 10.5 and has clinched the inaugural cup.  Just two sports remain to determine the final score, baseball and outdoor track & field.  Three points will be awarded for sport-by-sport comparison of APR scores (school with the most “wins” by sport in the head-to-head comparisons will be awarded 3 points).

SENIOR DAY:  Sunday’s game is Senior Day as eight Wolf Pack players will be recognized for their contributions to Wolf Pack baseball.  The eight seniors are outfielder Jamison Rowe (Richland, Wash.), outfielder Brooks Klein (Blue Diamond, Nev.), infielder Hugo Hernandez (Sylmar, Calif.), pitcher Daniel Levine (Henderson, Nev.), pitcher Kody Gorden (Las Vegas), infielder Brett Jones (Fresno, Calif.), pitcher Tom Jameson (Reno, Nev.) and infielder Ray McIntire (Winters, Calif.).
