Rebels Score Seven Unanswered Runs

LAS VEGAS -- Tanner Peters threw a complete game, striking out 11 Thursday to lead UNLV to a 7-2 victory over BYU.

BYU, now 17-13 overall and 5-4 in the league, took a 2-0 lead in the third inning. Wes Guenther singled, advanced to second on a sac-bunt, then scored on Dane Nielsen’s single. Nielsen advanced to second on the throw when it missed the cut-off man and scored on the next play, a single up the middle by Stephen Wells.

Wells extended his hitting streak to seven games with that single, but Jaycob Brugman’s 10-game hitting streak came to an end as BYU tallied only three hits.

BYU dodged a bullet when the Rebels drew a pair of walks in the bottom of the third, but no runs scored.

A lead off walk, a couple of booted balls, a wild pitch, a double to deep right-center and a line-drive single up the middle paved the way for a 4-2 UNLV lead in the bottom of the fifth.

“That inning was a downfall for us, we didn’t do a good job taking care of the baseball and it opened the door,” said BYU coach Vance Law. “When you do the job for them, it comes back to bite you. (Tanner) Peters kept us off balance tonight.”

UNLV, now 23-13 and 3-6 in the Mountain West Conference, hosts BYU again Friday night in the second of a three-game series.
