Bear Defeat Gets Consecutive Win

Tyler Westensee got his first victory since March, winning in relief at Northern Colorado

GREELEY -- For the first time in over a month BYU's baseball team won its second game in a row with a 17-10 victory Tuesday over Northern Colorado.

The two-game sweep over UNC improves BYU's record to 18-26, while the Bears fell to 15-30.

"Our offense continued to respond every time they scored," said BYU Coach Vance Law. "Our three pitchers competed very well."

Cougar outfielders Sean McNaughton, Kent Walton and Jonathan Cluff along with third baseman Steve Parker and Bryce Ayoso all had big days.

McNaughton led off with a home run to extend his hitting streak to 10 games with his team-leading 11th blast. That was followed by a two-run shot a couple batters later from Parker. Cluff walked, stole second and scored on Ayoso's single as BYU took a 4-0 lead.

Walton batted in Kiko Hermosillo in the second put BYU up 5-1.

A three-run homer by Bear designated hitter Kevin Sandberg in the third closed the gap to 5-4.

Walton responded in the fourth with a two-run homer before Cluff hit a two-run double and Ayoso homered him across the plate, putting BYU up 11-4.

Pinch hitter Thomas Bills hit a two-run double in the sixth and he scored one batter later on a Hermosillo groundout to extend BYU's lead, 14-7.

McNaughton singled in the ninth and was tripled in by Walton, one of the nation's triple leaders. Walton scored on Kasey Ko's single. Andrew Law pinch-ran for Ko and he stole second, then ran the bases well to score off a Parker single to make the score 17-9.

Freshman Tyler Westensee picked up his second victory, this time in relief.

The Cougars return home for a three-game series against league-leading New Mexico, starting on Thursday at 7 p.m.
