Eight Errors Lead To 17-1 UNLV Victory

PROVO -- Eight BYU errors translated into 10 unearned runs as UNLV routed the Cougars 17-1 at Larry H. Miller Field on Friday.

The seventh-largest crowd in BYU history at 2,293 witnessed the most errors since the Cougars made 10 in a 32-3 loss at Arizona on Feb. 1, 2003. The loss dropped BYU to 10-18 and 0-2 in the Mountain West Conference. UNLV improved to 14-7 and 2-0 in MWC play.

Rebels' starting pitcher Matt Luca (4-1) never allowed the Cougars into the game, allowing two early hits and one run in six innings pitched. Luca struck out six while walking one in his fourth victory.

After a single by catcher Casey Cloward in the second, BYU went hitless until the bottom of the ninth when Blair Lucas doubled for the Cougars' third hit. BYU loaded the bases with two outs in the ninth but failed to score.

"We folded up the tent in the third inning, and now we have to be ready to play in 14 hours to hopefully regain our confidence," said BYU head coach Vance Law. "Right now, the championship is going to go through UNLV."

Paul Jacinto (0-6) picked up the loss after pitching three and two-thirds innings in his ninth start for BYU. Jacinto allowed eight runs, five earned, on nine hits while striking out four and walking two.

Back-to-back doubles by UNLV in the top of the first by Andrew D'Angelo and Brent JOhnson scored the first run of the game. Johnson then advanced to third and scored on a RBI ground out by Eric Nielsen, giving the Rebels an early 2-0 lead.

With two outs in the bottom of the first, Jeff Hiestand walked and stole second allowing Rob Itri to hit him in with an RBI single for BYU's lone run.

The Rebels scored two more runs in the second, leading 4-1. A walk to Ty Soto and a single by Peter White put runners at first and second with one out. D'Angelo then hit his second double in the game, scoring Soto. A BYU error allowed White to score on the play. A solo home run by catcher Justin Tellam in the third, his second of the year, put UNLV up 5-1.

Three runs in the fourth extended the Rebels' lead to 8-1. D'Angelo hit his third consecutive double, scoring White. Two BYU errors and RBI singles by Ryan Ruiz and Nielsen scored two unearned runs. D'Angelo finished 3-for-6 with three runs and two RBI.

With two outs, UNLV scored four more unearned runs in the fifth. Johnson capped the inning with a two-RBI triple to right field. The Rebels scored three more runs in the third and one in the first before going scoreless for the first time in the eighth. An RBI double by White in the ninth finalized UNLV's 17 runs. White led the Rebels with a perfect 6-for-6 day, scoring four runs with one RBI.

The final game of the three-game series with UNLV is noon on Saturday at Larry H. Miller Field. The game can be listened to live on KOVO 960 AM. Live audio and game stats are available at www.byucougars.com.
