MWC Title Escapes Grasp

SALT LAKE CITY -- BYU's magic ran out as UNLV stole two straight games, 9-5 and 7-4, and the Mountain West Conference title Saturday at Franklin Covey Field.

With the two losses, the Cougars fall to 39-19-1 on the season. UNLV improved to 34-27. The MWC Championship gives the Rebels an automatic bid to the NCAA Regionals next week. BYU will find out if it earns an at-large bid on Monday.

UNLV jumped out to an early lead against BYU pitcher Matt Jensen. Jensen, who has been pitching very well lately, has been sick recently. The Rebels took advantage of the ailing Jensen, jumping out to a 2-0 first-inning lead. Zeke Parraz hit a RBI double and later scored on a single by Ryan Bird. UNLV scored again in the bottom of the third to go ahead 3-0.

In the top of the fourth, the Cougars stormed back to grab the lead. BYU got RBI base hits from Jeff Hiestand, Brandon Taylor and Kory Knell. Apana Nakayama led off the inning with a double and was followed by a single by Hiestand. Taylor tripled to knock in Hiestand. Ben Saylor grounded out to score Taylor. Knell then nailed a solo home run for BYU.

The lead was short-lived for the Cougars as UNLV responded in its side of the fourth inning to retake the lead. Matt Fry hit a two-run homer for the Rebels to go ahead 5-4.

UNLV never fell behind again, out scoring BYU 4-1 over the middle innings. The only run the Cougars managed was on a solo home run by Sean McNaughton in the top of the fifth inning. Rebels' reliever Matt Wagner shut the door on BYU, pitching 4 2/3 scoreless innings. Wagner only allowed one hit and got the Cougars to bounce into four double plays.

In game two, BYU jumped out to an early 1-0 lead when McNaughton led the game off with a triple and scored on a Marcos Villezcas groundout.

The lead didn't hold long as UNLV scored four runs in the bottom of the third inning. The Rebels sent nine batters to the plate in the inning.

BYU had a good chance to score runs in the top of the fourth when it loaded the bases with only one out. However, the Cougars were unable to score any runs. In the fifth, BYU again put runners on first and second with one out. The Cougars made the most of their opportunity in the fifth when Taylor roped a RBI single with two outs. Saylor followed with a two-run double to tie the game at four.

UNLV responded in its side of the fifth frame to take a 5-4 lead. The Rebels' run came on back-to-back doubles by Chris Bonnell and Bird. UNLV scored again in the sixth frame to widen its lead to 6-4.

The Cougars again squandered an excellent scoring opportunity in the seventh inning when they had runners on first and second base with nobody out. UNLV got a double play before BYU loaded the bases with two outs in the inning. Once again, the Cougars came up empty.

The Rebels added an insurance run in the bottom of the eighth on a two-out RBI single by Parraz to extend their lead to 7-4.

Kyle Tabeek pitched 2 1/3 innings to earn the save for UNLV.

After the tournament, three BYU players were honored on the All-Tournament team. Pitcher Dave Horlacher pitched a complete game on Friday in BYU's 7-2 victory over UNLV. Ryan Chambers homered twice and earned a save while Nakayama batted .615.
