LAS CRUCES — The New Mexico State University Aggie baseball team extended its winning streak to 14-games after defeating intrastate New Mexico 7-5 at Presley Askew Field Tuesday.
It’s the third time this season NMSU has defeated the Lobos and the fifth-straight victory over UNM dating back to the 2010 season.
The Aggies are now 23-8 on the season while UNM slipped to 12-15.
NMSU starting pitcher Adam Mott remained undefeated, improving to 4-0, as he worked six innings, striking out four batters. Closer Scott Coffman earned his sixth save, going two innings and striking out two batters without allowing a Lobo to get on board.
“I’ve been lucky enough to do this for the past couple of seasons, so I understand what I have to do now,” Coffman said. “It was a total team effort and I have to give credit to everyone on the team.”
For the Lobos, Alexis Garza (2-2) took the loss. Garza lasted just three innings, giving up three earned runs and six hits.
In all, the Lobos used four pitchers in the contest.
The Aggies jumped out to a 3-0 lead after two innings of play. Designated hitter Tanner Rust and second baseman Parker Hipp batted in runs in the second inning for the Aggies.
