The Nevada Wolf Pack could be without one of its best hitters for a while.
Sophomore first baseman Kewby Meyer missed this past weekend’s three-game Mountain West series with the Fresno State Bulldogs at Peccole Park because of a wrist injury suffered this past week.
“He hurt it lifting weights,” Pack coach Gary Powers said. “Right now there’s no stability in the wrist. It could be serious. He could miss the rest of the season. We’ll find out more this week.”
The6-foot-1, 190-pound left-hander is hitting .333 this season for the Pack. He has six doubles and two home runs and has driven in 13 runs. Meyer has walked seven times and has struck out just eight times. A year ago as a freshman Meyer hit .324 with nine doubles, two triples and a home run to go along with 34 RBI. He also struck out just 20 times last year in 182 at-bats.
His career average stands at .327.
Meyer was replaced at first base this past weekend by senior Hugo Hernandez. The right-handed Hernandez, who normally only plays against left-handers, was 2-for-8 in two games against Fresno with three RBI. Third baseman Austin Byler also moved over to play first in one of the three games against the Bulldogs.
The Wolf Pack won two of the three games to improve to 17-11 on the year overall and 5-4 in the mountain West.
