Mousser and Jensen lead Cougars Past Hawaii

HONOLULU -- Clutch hitting by a host of BYU hitters and five innings of two-hit pitching Thursday night led the Cougars to a 7-6 victory over Hawaii.

Rob Itri's two-out home run in the first inning with one runner aboard gave the Cougars the fast start they needed to improve to 4-10 on the season.

Hawaii kept the game close with timely hitting of its own. With one runner on base, Brian Bock tied the game in the second inning after blasting a Jeff Stone pitch out of the park for a home run.

The Cougars got on the board again in the third after Cameron Coughlan's leadoff walk resulted in a run after a single by Itri and a wild pitch by Bryan Lee. Dave Jensen came through with a double down the left-field line scoring Itri, and Jake Stubblefield singled to right bringing Jensen home to make the score 5-2.

The Rainbows responded to BYU's rally scoring four runs of its own in the third inning putting Hawaii up 6-5. But, that was all the Rainbows would score the rest of the game.

Jeff Mousser relieved Stone in the fifth and closed the door on the Rainbows by pitching five innings of shutout baseball giving up only two hits and recording six strike outs.

BYU tied the game in the fourth after Doug Jackson's RBI single scored Ranger Wiens making the score 6-6. Wiens led off the inning with a double to center field.

Itri recorded his third hit of the game in the seventh on a single up the middle. He stole second, and Jensen's opportune single brought Itri home to score the go-ahead run giving the Cougars a 7-6 advantage.

Before 2,329 fans at Les Murakami Stadium, BYU defeated the Rainbows that swept UCLA in Honolulu last week in a three-game series.

The Cougars play the Rainbows 5-6, Friday evening in the second of a three-game series.
