Jacinto, Jacobsen Down Utes

SALT LAKE -- Pitcher Paul Jacinto and centerfielder Brock Jacobsen paced BYU to a 9-5 victory Friday in the completion of a suspended game over host Utah.

Jacinto, now 3-4, came in relief of Jeff Mousser who had pitched the opening two innings on Thursday before the game was suspended because of snow. Rusty at first, Jacinto adjusted and ended up striking out six Utes.

Helping Jacinto feel a cushion was Jacobsen who belted a one-out solo homer in the eighth to give BYU a 8-5 lead.

"Paul came to me after his first inning and said, 'I can't get my arm loose,'" said BYU Coach Vance Law. "He tried to heat it up and finally got more command."

The Cougars got on board with a three-run first inning when Ranger Wiens stole second base. Utah's catcher overthrew second on the attempt and Wiens ended up at third, causing Sean Overholt pressure to walk the next two batters and load the bases. Then Jacobsen hit a two-out double off the left field wall to score two runs. Jake Stubblefield also scored off Rob Itri's infield single, giving BYU a 3-0 lead.

Utah rebounded in the second when Mike Basham hit a two-out, two-RBI triple off the centerfield wall to close the gap, 3-2. Then the snow came on Thursday to suspend the game.

When play resumed on Friday, Utah took a 5-4 lead when it loaded the bases in the fourth. The Utes tied the game on Jacinto's wild pitch and then took the lead when Cort Wilson hit a bloop single to right field to score Eric Chevalier.

BYU took a 6-5 lead in the fifth off a two-run double by Stubblefield to left center.

"That's the mark of a good team to regain momentum in the next inning after losing the lead," said Law. "Utah is a scrappy team and we were fortunate to jump out early. Any win is good and I was pleased with Paul's performance. He has been the surprise of the year for us."

BYU improves to 10-14 overall and 3-4 in the Mountain West Conference, while Utah drops to 11-13 and 2-5. The two teams meet again on Saturday in a doubleheader beginning at noon at Franklin Covey Field.
