Gravley Pitches Past Gonzaga

LEWISTON -- Strong pitching helped BYU defeat Gonzaga 10-1 Saturday in its final game at the Banana Belt Tournament.

Freshman left-hander Ken Gravley looked sharp in his first outing in three weeks. Gravley gave up just one run and three hits in eight innings of work.

The Cougars, now 4-8, struck first against the Bulldogs, now 3-6, scoring two runs in the bottom of the first inning. Shortstop Ranger Wiens scored the first run of the game on a double by first baseman Jake Stubblefield, who later scored on a passed ball.

The Bulldogs scored their only run of the game in the top of second on sacrifice fly by All-American, Jeff Culpepper, bringing the score to 2-1.

BYU increased its lead to 3-1 on an RBI single by designated hitter Kevin Bills in the fourth inning.

The Cougars scored the bulk of their runs in the fifth. Wiens, who was 3-3 on the evening, led off the inning with a triple and scored on a single by Stubblefield. Kainoa Obrey then hit his third homerun of the season, a two-run blast to center field. Bills topped off the inning with a two-run double to left field.

Cougar junior transfer Kory Knell began the seventh with a single, and later stole second. Two consecutive wild pitches then allowed him to score, increasing the Cougars' lead to 9-1.

The Cougars scored the final run of the game on back-to-back doubles by Doug Jackson and Wiens in the eighth.

Until tonight, the Cougars were winless when someone other than Jeff Mousser (3-0) was the starting pitcher.

In other action at the Banana Belt Tournament, Washington State defeated Lewis and Clark State 12-4, and Gonzaga beat Portland 9-5. BYU finished with a 2-2 record in the tournament.

The Cougars will travel to the Lone Star State on Thursday for a three-game series at Texas Christian University. The game will begin at 6:30 p.m. CST in Ft. Worth.
