3-way tie for first place with 2 games left


It's a 3-way tie for first place in the Mountain West with just two games remaining for the teams tied at the top.

San Diego State moved into the tie for first by virtue of its 4-0 shutout over Boise State, which saw its 8-game winning streak snapped on Danielle O'Toole's 2-hitter.  Fresno State fell into a first place tie by falling at Nevada, 3-2.  Jill Compton allowed only five hits in the game and the Bulldogs out-hit the Wolf Pack, but two of those five were solo homers by Megan Sweet.  Amanda Oliveto had no trouble keeping UNLV in the race with a 6-1 win over struggling Utah State, which has lost eight straight and 11 of its last 12 games.  The Rebels are just a game back with two left to play.  Colorado State, a game and a half back, and San Jose State were rained out in Fort Collins and will play two Friday.
