The College of Southern Nevada Coyotes fell into fourth place in the Scenic West Athletic Conference after dropping three of four home games to in-state rival Western Nevada.

The Coyotes (17-14, 4-8 SWAC) were outscored 20-11 in the series by the visiting Wildcats (22-10, 7-5), who moved into second place in the SWAC behind Salt Lake Community College (21-9, 13-3).

Sophomore Blair Goldsack pitched well once again for the Coyotes in the opener, allowing just three runs on four hits over seven innings while fanning eight batters in a 3-1 loss.

Freshman pitcher Josh Nuernberg picked up the Coyotes lone victory in the series finale, 4-3, tossing two scoreless innings in relief. First baseman Zach Scott won it in walk-off fashion, driving in second baseman Tyler Brown with a one out single in the bottom of the seventh.

Brown, who had two hits and two runs scored, had opened the inning with a single, was sacrificed to second by Gerald Robins and, after Grant Heyman was walked, scored the game-winner on Scott’s single.

Robins, a freshman outfielder, had six hits in 11 at-bats in the series, including a home run. He brought his season average up to .321 with 10 RBIs, four doubles, two home runs and six stolen bases.

The Coyotes will try to rebound with a weekend series against Colorado Northwestern Community College (7-22, 2-10) with doubleheaders at Morse Stadium on Friday starting at 1 p.m. and Saturday beginning at noon.
