    BOISE, Idaho -- Boise State pitcher Nicole Wilson was locked in once again this weekend, allowing just an unearned run to pick up her second win of the weekend as the Broncos took their second-straight series with a 6-1 win over UNLV at Dona Larsen Park.

    While Wilson scattered seven UNLV hits to even her record at 6-6, fellow senior Teauna Hughes provided the pop at the plate with her second two-homer of the season. Hughes went 2-for-3 with three RBI for the day, with her first home run of the day, a two-run shot, putting the Broncos ahead 2-1 in the first inning.

    That homer, coming with two away with Kora Wade on first, answered UNLV's lone run in the top half of the first. Garie Blando reached on an error at third by Tatiana Sorokina, and three batters later scored on Janine Petmecky's double down the left-field line.

    Boise State (12-28, 4-8 MW) tacked on two more in the fourth, starting with Shaelee Pearson's two-out single scoring pinch-runner Michelle Miller. Pearson would steal second and come around as Kayla Clausen legged out a grounder deep behind third and UNLV third baseman Jadelyn Yadao-Valdez' throw went past first base.

    Hughes hit her second homer with one out in the fifth, a solo shot to dead center, and Makenzie Sullivan led off the sixth with her fourth homer of the season to cap the Bronco scoring.

    Wilson was helped out on defense by two double plays, the first coming in the second when Pearson snagged a Brooke Stover pop-up just past the cut in right-center and fired home to get Yadao-Valdez at the plate. The second came on a 5-4-3 sequence in the fifth, which Wilson had to follow up with some work of her own. After the double play, UNLV (19-22, 3-9 MW) put runners on second and third with a single from Jamie Hatch and double from Blando, but Wilson got Jamie DePippo to pop out to Rebekah Cervantes at shortstop to end the threat.

    Wilson got Yadao-Valdez to ground to third to end a runners-at-the-corners threat in the sixth then set the Rebels down in order to cap a weekend in which she went 2-0 with a pair of complete games and just one unearned run allowed.
