Boise State (21-24-1, 5-7 MWC) rallied with three runs in the bottom of the seventh, but couldn't complete a comeback against Colorado State (21-22, 5-7 MWC) on Sunday, losing 5-4.
Reigning Mountain West Pitcher of the Week Rebecca Patton (10-10) took the loss, despite pitching four strong innings and only allowing one earned run.
BSU trailed 5-0 in the sixth, when Devon Bridges got the Broncos on the board with a home run. It was her eighth of the season and 38th of her career, breaking the all-time mark at Boise State. The Broncos loaded the bases with no outs in the seventh, and managed to plate three runs before the Rams escaped with a one-run win.
Boise State will visit UNLV next weekend before wrapping up the regular season at home with a three game series against Nevada.
