PROVO -- Sean McNaughton hit two home runs and moved into first place on the Mountain West Conference all-time homerun list Tuesday as BYU dropped an extra inning game 14-12 to Utah Valley at Larry H. Miller Field.

“I’m proud of Sean (McNaughton),” said BYU head coach Vance Law. “There’s been a lot of good players to come through this conference and to be at the top of the home run list is a great accomplishment.”

With one out in the bottom of the first inning, McNaughton belted his 15th home run of the season to pass Chris Alexander of New Mexico on the MWC all-time home run list. The blast was McNaughton’s 51st of his career.

The Cougars began to chip away at a 10-4 UVU lead in the bottom of the second, scoring two runs on one hit and one Wolverine error, and continued with two more in the third.

Back-and-forth scoring continued and McNaughton added his 52nd career home run and his 16th homerun of the season in the sixth inning to even the score at 12. McNaughton finished the night 4-for-6 with five RBI and his 10th double of the season.

The score remained deadlocked at 12 until play was suspended in the top of the 10th. Play was resumed after a 58-minute delay and the Wolverines were able to push two runs across in the top of that inning to take the lead and hold on for the victory.

Senior shortstop Brandon Relf led the Cougars defensively, making diving stops and quick flips to second to slow Wolverine threats, along with helping turn two, key double plays. Relf was also 2-for-3 from the plate with a walk and his 26th RBI of the season.

The Cougars and Wolverines combined for 26 runs and 30 hits in the two teams’ second meeting of 2010. BYU defeated UVU 14-10 May 4th in Orem.

The Cougars finish regular season and conference play as they travel to Colorado Springs, Colo. this weekend for a three-game series against Air Force.
