Again Southern Utah Wins First of Two

CEDAR CITY -- Duplicating the results for the second straight day, host Southern Utah claimed the first half of a doubleheader over BYU, 9-8, before falling in the nightcap Saturday, 19-13.

The Thunderbirds, now 6-6, led the opener until the final seventh inning when Nick Day's two-run homer to right field and Michael Davies solo dinger, also to the right, lifted BYU to an 8-5 lead.

However, the T-Birds rebounded in the bottom of the seventh when Travis Hatch led off the inning with a single, followed by Luke Geddes getting aboard after being hit by a pitch. Curtis Jacobsen followed with a groundball that went through the legs of first baseman Ty Haguewood, scoring Hatch. Bright then cracked his fifth homer of the season over the right field fence to give SUU a dramatic 9-8 victory.

Day's bat remained hot in the nightcap as he stroked three singles for as many RBI in a 21-hit performance that led BYU to a 19-13 victory. The Cougars belted five doubles, one of which was by Cameron Coughlan in the seven-run seventh along with his one-run triple in the ninth.

Cougar reliever Sean Noorda picked up his first victory, 1-2, in matching starter Jordan Opdahl with four strikeouts. Tyler Peterson hit his second homer of the day in the fifth for SUU, a three-run shot.

BYU, now 9-10, readies for its Mountain West Conference debut on Thursday at UNLV to start a three-game series.
