Utah Valley and Nevada have met 20 times in the all-time series, with the Wolf Pack holding a 16-4 advantage. All 20 contests have been played at Peccole Park in Reno, marking the first time the teams will meet in Orem.
Thursday's starter for UVU, senior Adam Gunn, was the lone winner in last year's series in Reno. Gunn struck out five in 7.0 innings of work, with just one unearned run coming in against him. In the upcoming series, Nevada will pit the same three starters it did last season against UVU.
The Wolf Pack got a nine strikeout performance from Brady Shipley last season in the series opener. Shipley is Friday's scheduled starter. Shipley and Tyler Hale (Saturday's starter) earned wins last season against UVU with Thursday's starter, Tom Jameson, taking the loss against Gunn.
Devin Nelson, who secured his first career win last week at Sac State, and Andrew Freter, who earned the win against then-No. 10 Arizona, are the other two slated to take the mound for the Wolverines.
Utah Valley travels to Texas Tech for a two-game midweek series next Tuesday and Wednesday prior to a weekend series at St. Mary's in the Bay Area.
