Pair of Home Games Precede MWC Start

Games Monday and Tuesday at home precede BYU's start of league play on Thursday at New Mexico.

Conference play starts this week for BYU at New Mexico, but first the Cougar baseball team has a two-game series starting Monday with Colorado State-Pueblo at Miller Park.

Game times are at 4 p.m., on Monday and Tuesday as BYU, 9-4-1, hosts Division II power CSU-Pueblo, 10-13. Formerly known as the University of Southern Colorado, the Thunderwolves feature one of the top pitchers in the Rockies, righthander Jeff Williams, 6-5, 230, who has a 4-2 record with a 5.10 ERA.

BYU's starting pitcher for Monday's game will likely be junior Matt Jensen, 2-0, 4.97.

The Cougars bring a six-game winning streak into the contests with the Thunderwolves, having swept a three-game series at New Mexico State, 5-3, 11-7 and 22-8.

"We preach you can always score with two outs," said BYU Coach Vance Law. "It was gratifying for us to win in New Mexico."

Following the two games with CSU-Pueblo, the Cougars begin play in the Mountain West Conference in a three-game series at the University of New Mexico. Those MWC games at Albuquerque mark the season start of BYU broadcasts over KOVO Radio (960 AM).
