LAS VEGAS --- The Fresno State baseball team defeated the UNLV Rebels 9-4 on Sunday afternoon at Wilson Stadium.

The Bulldogs rallied from a three-run deficit by scoring four times in the fifth, including a two-run go-ahead home run to straightaway center field by junior Aaron Judge that gave Fresno State a 4-3 lead.

The 'Dogs added two more in the seventh and three more in the ninth in cruising to the five-run victory over the Rebels.

The win keeps Fresno State (16-29, 10-14 Mountain West) in fifth place in the conference standings, but just one game back of Nevada for fourth place. New Mexico clinched the MW regular season title on Sunday with a win over Air Force and losses by both UNLV (30-17, 13-11 MW) and SDSU, who lost to Nevada 4-3.

Fresno State returns to Beiden Field for its final seven regular season games starting Tuesday at 6:35 p.m. PT versus Hawai'i.
