Non-conference action continues for BYU's baseball team as it travels the short distance for the first of two meetings with Utah Valley University.

Tuesday's BYU-UVU encounter in Orem at 6 p.m., will be followed up on May 18 in Provo. The Cougars' starter on the mound for the first three innings will be sophomore righthander Matthew Neil (3-4, 5.46), who has been leading off BYU's three-game weekend series.

The Cougars, 18-23, are just coming off three consecutive losses in non-league games in Washington to Seattle University and the University of Portland. Those losses are the first time since the opening week of the season that BYU has been swept.

Brothers Bryce and Travis Ayoso are on opposing teams in Tuesday's game. Bryce is BYU's starting catcher, while Travis is a left-handed relief pitcher for the Wolverines.

Following the BYU-UVU game, the Cougars bus to Las Vegas for a return to Mountain West Conference action at UNLV.
