Illinois Wins Round Two

TUCSON, Ariz.-Every starter got a hit for the University of Illinois who also got a complete game out of pitcher Andy Dickinson on Friday afternoon to defeat BYU, 7-1.

Round two of the Illini Desert Classic found the Cougar hitters lacking as play moved to the White Sox Field #3 as BYU's record fell to 7-8, while host Illinois improved to 1-2.

"Our pitching is adequate, but I know we can hit better than we are showing," said BYU Coach Vance Law.

The Cougars had base runners in all but the eighth inning, but managed only one run in the seventh. That run came when Illinois second-baseman Chad Frk dropped the throw missing the third out and allowing Ty Haguewood to score.

BYU avoided a second-inning jam when starter Jeff Stone picked Brady Ballard off second with one out.

Illinois' big inning was the four-run fourth when Frk hit a one-out single. The Illini loaded the bases with two outs and took advantage of a throw mishandled from the outfield to take a 5-0 lead.

Cougar outfielder Matt Carson threw two runners out, both in the fifth inning. His first peg was when Jeff Gertz tried to score from second off Patrik Arlis' single. The sophomore got the third out when Frk singled to right field and rounded past first base beyond return. However, Carson had a rare oh for-four day, flying out three times and lining out to third in the third with runners on the corners.

Teammates Seth King, Tyler Perry, and Haguewood were the only Cougars to have multiple hits, the latter of which had three.

The Cougars got the game in before hail and rain came during a post-game batting practice as 70 degree temperatures from Thursday had vanished. BYU is the home team again as it closes the tournament on Saturday afternoon on the same field against Kentucky when Ryan Adams, 2-1, is scheduled to pitch.
