Carson and Pitchers Secure 4-3 Win Over UH

HONOLULU, Hawai`i (February 23, 2002)--Matt Carson led BYU with two hits and three RBI as the Cougars topped Hawai`i 4-3 Saturday afternoon.

Paul Jacinto recorded his first win of the season for the Cougars, now 5-11, wrapping up the first three-game series victory of the season for BYU. Jacinto was relieved by Dixie transfer Tyler Dabo who struck out two consecutive batters with one out and the bases loaded to earn his first save of the season.

Doug Jackson's first inning leadoff walk led to the first run of the game after Carson hit an RBI single to right field making the score 1-0.

Carson stifled the Rainbows' first-inning rally with a double play by firing a pop out from right to nail the runner tagging from third.

Carson launched his third homer of the year in the third inning with Jackson on first to make the score 3-0.

The Rainbows, now with a 6-7 record, closed the scoring gap in the fourth when Brent Cook came home on a wild pitch by Matt Ward, who originally signed to play for Hawaii before transferring to BYU.

Hawai`i added another run in the fifth after Ward walked the bases loaded. Jacinto relieved Ward and gave up a sacrifice fly to Scooter Martines to make the score 3-2

BYU failed to increase its lead in the seventh inning after stranding runners on the corners.

Sandy, Utah's own Cortland Wilson tied the game in the seventh for the Bows on an RBI base hit up the middle that scored Arthur Guillen.

Ranger Wiens, who served his mission in Hawai`i, knocked in the go-ahead run for the Cougars in the ninth scoring Jake Stubblefield who reached base on an error.

The Cougars continue their road trip to the Islands Monday with a doubleheader against Hawai`i Hilo.
