RENO, Nev. (AP) - Nevada scored a pair of runs in the eighth inning on an error and a wild pitch to beat Oregon 6-5 Thursday and give Wolf Pack coach Gary Powers his 800th career victory.

Powers, who improved his 27-year career record to 800-629-4, said his players and assistants deserve all the credit.

"I don't even like to talk about 800 wins or anything like that," Powers told the Nevada Appeal. "It's not about me. It's about the players who play between the white lines. ... I haven't throw a pitch or gotten a hit."
