The UTEP softball team lost a pair of games – 4-3 to Utah and 4-0 to Nevada – on Friday afternoon in the Easton Desert Classic at SLC Park. The Miners are 1-7 to start the new campaign.

UTEP 3, Utah 4
The Miners once again found themselves in the lead, 3-2 in the fifth inning, but once again came up short. The Miners scored all three runs on three Sammy Cordova wild pitches, but her squad scored two runs in the sixth inning to take the lead for good.

Junior Tahla Wade hit a single through the left side in the bottom of the third inning, followed by junior Ashley Eldridge doubling to left center. Wade crossed home plate on a wild pitch to give the Miners a 1-0 lead.

In the top of the fourth, Utah tied the contest on an Anissa Urtez double to deep right that scored Kristen Stewart, and Chalese Hadley hit a sac-fly to center for a 2-1 lead.

UTEP answered with a run in the bottom half when senior Kayla Black led the inning off with a single through the left side. Sophomore Kawehiokalani Netane doubled to left center, placing Black at third. Junior Samantha Alvillar got on first on a fielder’s choice as Black was thrown out on a 4-2 play. Netane advanced to third on the Alvillar at bat, and would eventually tie to ball game 2-2 on a wild pitch.

In the fifth, junior Ashley Eldridge, a native of Las Vegas, hit her third double of the weekend that set up the Miners’ third run. Senior Alanna Leasau’s sac-bunt put Eldridge at third, and another Cordova wild pitch plated Eldridge giving the edge to the Miners.

Sophomore Danielle Pearson allowed back to back doubles (Bridget Castro to right center and Urtez to center field) to open the sixth inning. Urtez’s hit scored Castro to tie the game. Shelby Pacheco reached on a fielder’s choice, as Urtez was thrown out on an unassisted play by catcher McKenzey Finley. Pacheco stole second and would eventually score the game-winning run on a Bella Secaira single up the middle.

UTEP 0, Nevada 4
Junior Megan Dortch pitched a complete game, allowing only two hits and notching 11 strikeouts as Nevada cruised.

With the Wolf Pack up 3-0 in the top of the sixth, the Miners threatened to tie the game as senior Erika Arcuri was hit by a pitch and Alvillar sprinted for a single to the shortstop. Leasau, the Miners’ home run leader a season ago, was the potential game-tying run, but struck out to end the inning.

The Miners will take on Boise State (10 a.m. MT) and Long Beach State (11:15 a.m.) on Saturday before returning to the Sun City.
