Highlanders Complete Sweep

RIVERSIDE -- After scoring four runs in the second, BYU failed to hold its lead, losing 6-4 to UC Riverside on Saturday.

With the win, the Highlanders (4-7) completed a three-game sweep over BYU (2-9). Paul Jacinto suffered his fourth loss of the season allowing five earned runs on 10 hits. Haley Winter picked up his first win for UC Riverside.

Ryan Chambers knocked in two runs with a single in the second inning as BYU scored four runs on four hits in the inning. An error by the Highlander's third baseman accounted for two of the Cougars' runs.

Right fielder Jeff Hiestand went 2-for-3 for the Cougars, increasing his hitting streak to five games. Casey Cloward and Rob Itri also had two-hit performances.

UC Riverside tied the game in the bottom of the third with four runs on five hits. Brett Bigler came home to score one of the runs after doubling to center field. The Highlanders took their final lead in the fifth on a two-run home run by shortstop Brian Steinmeyer.

The Cougars will return to California on Thursday to play a three-game series against San Jose State. The series will not be carried through live audio or livestats on the Internet, but reports will be posted as soon as possible on www.byucougars.com.
