Home Run Gives New Mexico 7-6 Win

With losses to Big Sky schools earlier in the year, prospects were dimmed for the Mountain West season and today, Boise State lost 7-6 despite leading 3-0 and getting what appeared to be a three-run homer in the top of the seventh that would have given them a 7-6 lead.  The two teams will meet again tomorrow and Sunday in the opening series of conference play.

Would have been a 7-6 game on a three-run homer, but Whyte passed Weir on the basepath.  It results in a second out instead, with Whyte on first.
