Jacinto Beats Aztecs in 11

PROVO -- A one-out double by Brandon Taylor scored the winning run in an 11-inning 7-6 victory over San Diego State on Thursday at Larry H. Miller Field.

"This is huge," said BYU second baseman Wade Vest. "We're playing the top team in the conference. If we can beat them, we can beat anybody."

An error by Aztec reliever Drew Jenson (0-2) on a routine ground ball put Vest on first with no outs in the 11th. Ryan Chambers then moved Vest over with a sacrifice bunt allowing Taylor to poke a double down the right field line for the win.

"If Vest doesn't run a hard 90 feet to beat that routine play, we don't score the winning run," said BYU head coach Vance Law. "Vest hustles all the time. He's always looking for that extra base."

Paul Jacinto (1-8) picked up his first win of the year, pitching 5 2/3 innings in relief. Las year's Mountain West Conference Pitcher of the Year gave up only one run off five hits while striking out four.

"Paul looked like the Paul of last year," Vest said. "He got the job done like we knew he could."

The Aztecs threatened to break the tie game in the top of the 10th when two singles put runners on first and third with one out. Jacinto then preserved the opportunity for a Cougar win by striking out Kyle Floquet and David Hall looking to end the inning.

"(Paul) did a great job," Law said. "He got out of that with minimal damage. He's a guy who we're going to have to have great performances from to do well down the stretch."

The Cougars are now 7-6 in one-run games and 4-2 in extra-inning games this year. The win improves BYU to 15-24 and 5-8 in the MWC while San Diego State falls to 19-21 and 8-3.

After the Aztecs took an early 2-1 lead off BYU starter Patrick Wells (5-3), the Cougars tied the game in the fourth. BYU then scored two in the fifth to take a 4-2 lead. However a two-run homer by Chad Corona set up a three-run SDSU inning in the sixth, giving San Diego State a 5-4 lead.

The Aztecs extended their lead to 6-4 in the seventh, but BYU tied the game in the bottom of the seventh with an RBI pinch hit single by Kevin Bills and a RBI double from Ben Saylor.

The Cougars and Aztecs battle it out again on Friday at 7 p.m. with the game being broadcast live on BYU TV. The broadcast is also available nationally through the Dish Network, DirectTV and over the Internet. KOVO 960 AM will continue its live coverage of BYU baseball with Brent Norton calling the play-by-play.
