    About The Opposition
    San Diego State (28-21, 10-11 MW) has won its past three series and six of its last nine entering this weekend’s finale. Last week the Aztecs narrowly missed a sweep of New Mexico, dropping the finale, 3-2, in 10 innings.

    The Aztecs are led at the plate by the power of Molly Sturdivant (.312, six homers, 31 RBI) and Jaylene Ignacio (.275, five homers, 25 RBI), while in the circle, the twosome of Erica Romero (13-8, 3.73 ERA, 90 strikeouts) and Alex Formby (11-10, 3.73 ERA, 74 strikeouts) make up the rotation.

    All-time, Boise State is 4-8 against San Diego State and has lost the last six meetings.

    Last Time Out
    Boise State was swept by San Jose State in its final home series of 2016 last weekend. The Broncos dropped the opener, 17-9, in six innings before falling 13-0 in five innings Saturday and being defeated 14-4 in Sunday’s finale.

    Despite the losses, the Broncos had some bright spots, as the team hit eight home runs over the three games. Rebekah Cervantes led the way with three homers and four RBI while batting .429 (3-for-7). Morgan Lamb and Makenzie Sullivan each hit a pair of homers and drove in three runs, while Teauna Hughes added a homer and drove in three runs.

    Cervantes, Hughes Bring The Power
    With their home run blitzes this past weekend, Broncos Rebekah Cervantes and Teauna Hughes each brought their season totals to double digits and accomplished a feat that Bronco teammates haven’t done since 2011.

    Cervantes (12 homers) and Hughes (11) became the first Bronco teammates to each hit at least 10 homers in a season since 2011, when Devon Bridges (16) and Allie Crump (10) each reached double digits.

    Lamb Swinging The Lumber (Composite?)
    It wasn’t just Cervantes and Hughes swinging the big bats against San Jose State, as freshman catcher Morgan Lamb hit two homers of her own over the weekend.

    In her rookie campaign, Lamb has made an impact for the Broncos, batting .337 (third on the team) with six homers, nine doubles and 17 RBI. She also ranks second on the team with a .430 on-base percentage and third with a .630 slugging percentage.
