Jacinto Throws One-Hit Victory

PROVO -- Paul Jacinto pitched a one-hit complete game to beat UNLV 3-1, Friday night at Larry H. Miller Field.

The win improves BYU's record to 7-13 overall and 2-3 in the Mountain West Conference, while UNLV falls to 18-8, 4-1.

"Paul had his whole game working today," said BYU Head Coach, Vance Law. "He was able to work both sides of the plate effectively."

Jacinto (2-4) retired 16 straight before giving up his only hit in the sixth inning. Peter White lined a one-out single to left field. Jacinto got out of a bases loaded jam in the sixth, giving up only one run on a sacrifice fly, to go the distance for the Cougars.

The Cougar junior hurler finished the game, throwing 117 pitches, striking out seven hitters and walking three. He set the Rebels down in order in the first four innings and again in the seventh.

Jacinto said he just wanted to keep the team in the game. "UNLV is a tough team, but our bats were working and our defense played great."

Jake Stubblefield set the table in the fourth inning with a leadoff single, and after a hit batsman and a fielder's choice, he scored the games first run off a passed ball. Stubblefield extended his team-high 14-game hitting streak, going 3-for-4 on the night.

In the fifth, Stubblefield started a two out rally with a hot shot up the middle for an RBI single and Kainoa Obrey followed with a double off the right field wall, giving the Cougars a 3-0 lead.

UNLV pitcher Robbie Van (2-3) was pulled in the sixth after walking the bases loaded. The Cougars knocked Van around for six hits and three runs.

The attendance for Friday's game was 1,530.

Ken Gravley will lead the Cougars in the final game of the three-game series against UNLV on Saturday at 2 p.m. The game will be broadcast live over KOVO 960 AM and livestats can be found at www.byucougars.com.
