HONOLULU - The University of Hawaii baseball team was eliminated from contention for the Western Athletic Conference regular-season championship with a 4-2, 10-inning loss to Nevada on Friday at Les Murakami Stadium.

Kewby Meyer drove in the go-ahead run for the Wolf Pack in the 10th inning with a sacrifice fly, and Brooks Klein later hit a ground-rule double and came home on Garrett Yrigoeyn's base hit.

Piikea Kitamura was 2-for-4 with a run and RBI for the Rainbows (29-23, 9-8 WAC).

Carlos Escobar Jr. hit a two-run triple in the fourth inning for Nevada (31-22, 11-6).

Lawrence Chew (2-3) took the loss.

Elliot Van Gaver (2-0) struck out the one batter he faced, Kaeo Aliviado, to end the ninth. Matt Gardner recorded his 13th save.

The teams will both conclude their regular seasons by meeting again today.

The WAC tournament begins Wednesday in Mesa, Ariz.
