Seattle (April 11, 2008)--Kyle Conley hit a pair of home runs Friday night to near-single-handedly give Washington a 12-4 defeat of BYU.

Conley's d?j? vu effort added to the game-winning homer against BYU Thursday and a walk-off homer on Tuesday proved the Cougars faced one of the hottest hitters in the West. His two-run homer in the eighth was the game-breaker on Friday.

The best the Cougars could do on the night was tie the score in the fourth and pull within two in the eighth. UW improved to 23-9, while BYU falls to 14-20.

Steve Parker got BYU's first hit of the night with a two-out double in the first inning, but was stranded.

After loading the bases in the second, BYU lefty Jake Wortham was the beneficiary of an inning-ending double play.

Conley hit a two-out homer to right field to break up Wortham's no-hitter in the third. Wortham surrendered five hits in that inning as the Huskies took a 2-0 lead.

Bryce Ayoso hit a two-run single to leftfield with the bases loaded in the fourth to tie the game, 2-2.

Wortham retired the side in the fourth and UW reciprocated in the fifth, setting the Cougars down in order. Wortham yielded three of hits in the fifth as the Huskies retook the lead from a Conley single and expanded that margin, 4-2. He left the game in the sixth as UW expanded its lead, 6-2, closing the inning with the bases loaded.

BYU shortstop Dan Vargas hit a two-run in the eighth to close the margin, 6-4.

The two teams finish the three-game series Saturday as game time was moved up to 11 a.m. PDT.
