RIVERSIDE -- Three homers and a triple aided UC Riverside to an 11-6 victory to conclude a three-game sweep over BYU on Saturday.

The Cougars, 0-3, fell victim again to the Highlanders, 3-0 after a short-lived lead for the second day in a row.

BYU’s Dane Nielsen hit a two–RBI single in the second to score Chase Frampton and Ryan Bernal and get the Cougars on the board.

Sean McNaughton led off with a single in the third and scored off Alex Wolfe’s double to centerfield. On that double, Austin Hall held up at third after walking before Wolfe’s stroke. One out later, Hall scored off Bernal’s single to give BYU it’s only lead of the game at 4-3.

Nielsen had a one-out double in the fourth and was credited stealing home after Wes Guenther got in a run-down pickle between first and second. Nielsen broke for home and slide around the tag and Guenther advanced safely to second., tying the game at five-all.

After a long bus ride home, the Cougars ready for another bus trip to California when they play a three-game series the end of this month at UC Davis.
