SAN FRANCISCO -- Host San Francisco put up 13 runs in the second inning over BYU’s baseball team and went on to a 20-4 victory in a rain-shortened game Wednesday.

The Cougars, now 10-13 overall, went through eight pitchers in an effort to stop the Dons, now 14-13. BYU outfielder Sean McNaughton saw his 15-game hitting streak come to an end in the game which started an hour earlier than scheduled to avoid rain.

BYU’s scoring came when Ryan Bernal led off with a fourth inning double and scored on Jonathan Cluff’s ensuing triple. Cluff scored on Wes Guenther’s sacrifice fly. Guenther and Dane Nielsen scored in the sixth inning off a Stephen Well’s one-out triple to make it 17-4.

The Cougars now prepare for a three-game series at San Jose State, who brings a 9-13 record into Thursday evening.
