New Mexico State sets record with 39-0 baseball win

LAS CRUCES  – New Mexico State baseball set a school and Western Athletic Conference record by scoring 39 runs Friday night in a 39-0 win at Presley Askew Field in the series-opener against Mississippi Valley State.

“”I mean I don’t even know what to say. I mean that was as impressive of a performance I’ve ever been a part of,” said NMSU coach Brian Green.

Aggie starter Kyle Bradish (2-0) tossed scoreless innings and gave up just two hits and two walks while striking out 12 Delta Devils (0-2) . It was the second-straight start with 10-plus punch outs for the junior righty, who at one point struck out nine traight batters.

The Aggies drew six walks in an 11-run first inning and 17 for the game.

Freshman Noah Haupt had an outstanding night at the plate, going 6-of-7 , scoring xix runs with 10 RBI – including a pair of homers. His six runs also tied the program’s record for runs in a single game. Haupt’s double in the eighth inning also plated the record-breaking 38th and 39th run for New Mexico State .

Mason Fishback batted in five runs on two hits while scoring three. First baseman Caleb Henderson had a perfect night at the dish, going 4-for-4 and scored two with three RBI. And so on, and so on.

MVSU’s one game before coming to Las Cruces was a 10-5 loss on Tuesday in Cleveland, Miss., to Delta State, the nation’s No. 1-ranked Division II team, per Collegiate Baseball.



The Aggies (3-2) will play two on Saturday, Feb. 24, to wrap up the three-game series against MVSU. JUCO transfer Justin Dehn will get the ball in the first game of the double-header while Johnathan Groff takes the hill for NM State in the second game. First pitch is scheduled for 1:05 p.m. (MT) and 5:05 p.m., respectively, or within 30 minutes of the conclusion of the first game.

Box score: New Mexico State 39, Mississippi Valley State 0
