The New Mexico baseball team erupted for 11 unanswered runs en route to a 14-4 rout of in-state rival New Mexico State on Tuesday afternoon.

It was the Lobos' first victory in Las Cruces since 2010.

Sam Haggerty, Chase Harris and Lane Milligan each had three hits to pace a 17-hit attack for UNM (17-8-1).

The game was tied 4-4 going to the fifth inning when the Lobos took control. Senior John Pustay led off with a home run, becoming the first UNM player other than Harris to homer this season.

With one out, Andre Vigil and Milligan reached on back-to-back singles. A wild pitch moved Vigil to third base and he came in to score on Aaron Siple's infield single. Danny Collier laid down a sacrifice bunt, but ended up safe at first base on an error by Aggies starter Kyle Kilgore (2-2).

Another wild pitch scored Milligan to make it 7-4 and Haggerty followed with a sacrifice fly to push the lead to 8-4.

The Lobos tacked on another run in the sixth and five in the eighth.

Haggerty finished the game with two runs and three RBI, while Harris had two RBI and Pustay and Milligan each scored three runs.

Freshman lefty Carson Schneider (1-0) picked up his first collegiate win. He allowed one run on three hits in 2.1 innings of relief.

Joseph Koerper went 2-for-4 with a home run and two RBI for NMSU (10-14).

The Lobos will resume Mountain West play Friday in the opener of a three-game series at Air Force.
