SEATTLE -- No rain, no victory for BYU baseball as its five-game winning streak came to an end with a 6-2 loss Saturday to Washington.

The Huskies, now 2-7, in turn stopped a seven-game losing streak, while BYU is at 6-4 after winning the previous two days in rainy weather.

"Mark (Anderson) struggled with his command today and we didn't swing the bat all that well," said BYU coach Vance Law. "The balls we hit were right at people, it was just one of those days. It is disappointing because I have such expectations for this team."

The third inning may have been indicative of BYU’s struggles for the day. Alex Hancock led off with a triple, then teammate Stephen Wells got on first with a fielder’s choice when pitcher Austin Voth threw out Hancock at home. Brigham struck out eight Cougars in six innings.

BYU picked up its second run in the ninth when Austin Hall drew his second lead-off walk of the day. He advanced to third on Dane Nielsen’s double and scored on Wells’ sacrifice fly.

Wells lost his six-game hitting streak. Nielsen was the only Cougar with more than one hit.

The Cougars now ready for a two-game series at the University of Portland, starting Monday afternoon.
