Bears Break 2-1 Lead in Seventh

BERKELEY -- A four-run California seventh inning broke open a 2-1 game as the Bears beat BYU 11-1 in Berkeley on Thursday.

The Bears struck first in the second inning. After first baseman James Holder led off the inning with a double to the left side, Brennan Boesch hit a two-run home run over the left field fence.

Left fielder Kory Knell gained a Cougar run in the third after being hit by a pitch and advanced home on a sacrifice fly by Tim Law with the bases loaded. BYU ended the third after loading the bases for the second time in the inning.

The score remained 2-1 into the bottom of the seventh inning when the Bears broke the game wide open with four runs off three doubles. Left fielder Boesch, who went 3-for-3 in the game with four RBI, led off the inning with a walk. He would later score on a RBI double by David Weiner.

With two outs, an error by BYU third baseman Rob Itri off a hit ball from Brian Horwitz kept the inning alive for Cal. Weiner scored on the play, and the Bears went on to hit two consecutive doubles to finish the inning leading 6-1.

Cal continued to increase its lead in the eighth inning, adding five more runs. Boesch hit his second two-run home run of the game. Weiner followed with a two-run home run of his own. A solo shot to left field by Horwitz gave the Bears an 11-1 lead.

Cal's starting pitcher Matt Brown picked up his first win of the season. He allowed one run on five hits while striking out one Cougar in six innings. Mike Padgett earned the save for the Bears, holding BYU scoreless in three innings of work.

Starting pitcher Paul Jacinto received the loss but pitched well for the Cougars, allowing three earned runs in six and two-thirds innings. He finished the game with four strikeouts.

The same two teams match up again on Friday at 1:30 p.m. (PST) and Saturday's finale at noon (PST). The games can be followed live on Gametracker. A link to this webcast can be found at www.byucougars.com.
