Brugman, Wolfe 4 RBI Each in 20-5 Romp

AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. -- Jaycob Brugman’s two home runs highlighted 20 wind-aided hits Saturday in BYU’s 20-5 romp over the Air Force Academy.

Brugman had a solo homer in the first and a towering 450-foot-plus, two-run belt in the fifth. The freshman rightfielder also turned a double play in the fifth when he caught a fly ball on the line, then threw a one-hoop strike into the wind to end the inning at third base.

BYU got two other home runs, a grand slam by Alex Wolfe in the seventh and a three-run shot by pinch-hitter Brock Luker in the eighth.

Wolfe and Brugman each had four RBI and a double for the afternoon, with Brugman going four-for six and Wolfe going three-for five.

Credit Dane Nielsen though with the eventual game-winning RBI, a one-out single in the sixth inning.

“I am pleased with our quality at bats,” said BYU coach Vance Law. “It was close the first four innings, then we regained the momentum and added on every inning.

“Our pitchers were outstanding. Mark Anderson was not as sharp as he has been his last two outings, but he was reasonably effective. Our three pitchers out of the bullpen did a wonderful job.”

BYU improves to 29-25 overall and finished with an 11-12 mark in the Mountain West Conference, while AFA ends its season at 19-36 and 4-20. The Cougars now advance to face New Mexico on Tuesday afternoon to start the MWC Tournament in San Diego.
