Bronco Begin Homestand With Aztecs
April 20, 2017
Boise State (24-15, 6-9 MW) vs. San Diego State (23-14, 7-5 MW)
BOISE, Idaho - Boise State (24-15, 6-9 MW) begins a three-week, six-game homestand this Friday as it welcomes San Diego State (23-14, 7-5 MW) to Dona Larsen Park for a three-game set. Friday's opener and Saturday's contest are each set for a 4 p.m. start, with Sunday's finale scheduled for a 12 p.m. first pitch.
About The Opposition
The Aztecs, which swept New Mexico last weekend, are led by the power of Jenavee Peres (.405, 12 HR, 41 RBIs) and Molly Sturdivant (.369, 11 doubles, seven HR, 30 RBIs). In conference play, the Aztecs lead the Mountain West batting (.372), slugging percentage (.559), on-base percentage (.427), hits (130) and total bases (195), and are second in home runs (13).
In the circle, Erica Romero is 7-3 with a 2.89 ERA and 46 strikeouts to lead the staff.
Boise Stage 5-10 all-time against San Diego State, and has lost eight of the past nine meetings.
Last Time Out
Despite strong pitching performances in which the Bronco staff combined to hold San Jose State to 15 hits over the series (only six over the final two games), the Bronco offense couldn't get going as it managed just three runs on 13 hits.
After dropping the opener, 6-2, Boise State lost a pair of pitching duels, falling 1-0 on a bases-loaded walk Friday before a Spartan three-run homer Saturday dropped the Broncos to a 3-1 defeat.
Among The National Leaders
Through April 10, Boise State ranked 27th in batting (.313).
Individually, Rebekah Cervantes is 53rd in batting average (.412).
In the circle, freshman Kelsey Broadus ranks 12th in strikeouts per seven innings pitched (9.6), 15th in hits per seven innings (4.12) and 23rd in the country with three saves.
Good To Be Home
The Broncos begin their six-game homestand this weekend against San Diego State, and after a bye next weekend, host Nevada for its final home series of the campaign from May 5-7.
The Broncos have just one road series remaining: at New Mexico State (May 11-13).
Solid Pitching In The Bay Area
After a 6-2 defeat in the opener, Friday's game was a different story. Rainey Dyreson and Kelsey Broadus combined to give up just two hits and strike out five Spartans, but a bases-loaded walk in the fourth inning cruelly forced them to take a 1-0 loss.
Saturday, Christina Washington was in the circle, and held the Spartans hitless through three innings before a three-run home run provided the only runs for San Jose State in their 3-1 win. Paige Reimann came on after the homer and allowed just one hit over the final 2.2 innings.
Overall, the Bronco staff allowed just 15 hits and struck out 11 over the weekend.
