McNaughton Scores Law To Win

Sean McNaughton doubled in Andrew Law in a 7-5 victory at the University of Pacific.

Stockton, Calif. (March 4, 2008)--Sean McNaughton drove in Andrew Law in the two-run ninth inning Tuesday night to put BYU over the University of Pacific, 7-5.

The win was the first for southpaw Jake Wortham as the Cougars improved to 3-5 heading into a Wednesday evening rematch with the Tigers.

Wortham did not surrender a hit in his final three innings and teammate Jared Miller picked up his first save of the season.

Kent Walton extended his hitting streak to 15 games with a solo home run in the first inning. Walton gave BYU an insurance run in the ninth with a sacrifice fly to score McNaughton.

Cougar Jonathan Cluff hit off the leftfield fence in the fourth, but the Tigers got a good relay throw to put Steve Parker out at home to preserve a 5-1 lead.

The Cougars loaded the bases in the fifth to chase starter Larry Holscher out of the game and Dan Vargas cleared the bases with a triple on the first offering from the Pacific reliever, making the score 5-4.

BYU tied the game, 5-5, when Cluff hit a one-out double and scored when Bryce Ayoso stayed alive on an error by the Tigers' shortstop.

Former Cougar Mike McKeever started in right field for Pacific and knocked in the first run for UoP and scored after a lead-off triple in the third.
