New Mexico State 4, San Jose State 2
Box Score

SAN JOSE, Calif. - (NMSU Media Relations) The New Mexico State baseball team (34-20, 10-7 WAC) won its third straight game win by beating San Jose State (22-28, 5-12 WAC) 4-2 at Municipal Stadium in San Jose, Calif., Saturday, May 19.

The Aggies knocked the Spartans out of any hope to get into the 2012 Western Athletic Conference tournament, and helped their own cause by picking up another league win.  Starting right-hand pitcher Adam Mott got off to a slow start but earned the win going 7 1/3 innings throwing 125 pitches.  Senior Scott Coffman gutted it out throwing an inning to pick up his eighth save of the year.

"He (Mott) is a big strong kid who came in and took care of business today. We got a very good outing from Adam," head coach Rocky Ward said.  "San Jose is a very unique team and one thing they have done this year is score late, so it was good that we could get this win today."
