After UNLV took the first game of the series, the rivals from up north returned the favor Friday night.
UNR’s offensive surge in the sixth inning led to an 8-1 victory against the Rebels to even the final series of the regular season.
The Wolf Pack (32-22, 19-10 Mountain West) tallied seven runs in the sixth inning, including a three-run homer from Jordan Pearce.
The Rebels (24-29, 14-15) didn’t get on the scoreboard until the ninth. Max Smith’s single drove in A.J. VanMeetren.
UNLV concludes the regular season at UNR at 1 p.m. Saturday.
