Game Suspended Due to Darkness

SAN FRANCISCO -- After three hours and 25 minutes of play the score is tied, 12-12, through nine innings for BYU and the University of San Francisco who resume their baseball game Wednesday afternoon.

Tuesday's action was called because of darkness at Benedetti Diamond.

USF baseball fought back from a deficit with a four-run fourth and five runs in the sixth inning to tie Brigham Young 12-12 after nine innings. The game will start with the first pitch of the 10th inning scheduled for 2 p.m. PST.

The last tie for BYU happened in 1990 when it tied Hawai'i, 10-10, in Provo.

BYU's record is now 4-2 as it readies for the continuation. Fans wishing to log in and view a live webcast of the BYU-USF game can log in at www.usfdons.com. The Dons are now 1-2.

The Cougars are scheduled to start a three-day, three-game series nearby at Cal-Berkeley on Thursday, while USF plays Pacific on Friday.
