Chambers & Wiens Help Down Utah

PROVO -- Ryan Chambers and Ranger Wiens knocked Utah pitching around Friday in BYU's 16-5 victory in front of the fourth largest crowd in Miller Park history.

The Cougars won behind the cheers of 2,512 fans, the largest attendance thus far this season. BYU's record improved to 21-20 overall, 13-10 in the Mountain West Conference. Utah dropped its sixth in a row, sending its record to 19-26, 6-16.

"Hitting is contagious," BYU Head Coach Vance Law said. "And every one on the team is hitting well right now. I feel confident I can send any one up to the plate and they'll do what is asked of them."

Chambers hit the ball square in the first inning that sailed over the right field fence into the dormitory parking lot to give BYU a lead it would never relinquish. It was Chambers' eighth home run of the year, tying him for the team lead with Brock Jacobsen.

On consecutive nights, Chambers has paced the Cougars, going 2-for-3 on Friday, with three RBI and four runs scored. In the series, he is hitting 5-for-6 with two home runs and six RBI.

Wiens hit a ball off the 388 marker in left field to send in two runs and give the Cougars a 7-1 lead. On the play Wiens passed up Chambers rounding second and was called out.

Paul Jacinto pitched three innings of no-hit ball before Wick Udy homered to make the score 4-1. He threw 108 pitches, striking out three and spraying seven hits around in seven innings.

"Jacinto is one of the funnest pitchers I've ever caught," catcher Casey Cloward said. "When we're on the same page we're unstoppable."

BYU went up by 10 runs in the seventh off of Kainoa Obrey's two-run home run, making the score 14-4.

"At the beginning of the season we were known for guiding towards the end of the games, losing one-run games," Cloward said. "Now we're looking to finish every game strong."

BYU looks for the sweep against Utah at 1 p.m. on Saturday. Should BYU pull that feat, it would be the first six-game sweep since 1986. Saturday's game will be televised live on KBYU (channel 11) and BYU-TV.
