Rebels Win in Extra Innings

PROVO -- After seven lead changes, UNLV ended up on top, beating BYU 12-9 in 11 innings on Thursday.

In BYU's first home game of the season, the Cougars (10-17) belted 13 hits in front of 1,494 fans. Seven pitchers were used by BYU beginning with Patrick Wells (3-2). Wells went four-plus innings allowing five runs on nine hits. He struck out two while walking four. Bryce Burger (0-3) picked up the loss, allowing four runs on five hits in two innings of relief.

Brent Johnson hit two solo home runs for UNLV (13-7). His second homer gave the Rebels a 9-8 lead in the 10th inning. Johnson finished 4-for-7 with three RBI and four runs scored. Eric Nielsen led UNLV with five RBI, finishing 4-for-7.

The Cougars came right back to tie the game at nine in the 10th with an RBI double by Kory Knell. But three runs in the 11th sealed UNLV's victory.

"When we got the lead, I have a lot of faith in our bullpen getting it done," said BYU head coach Vance Law. "They didn't get it done today, but I'm sure they'll come through for us again."

Four Rebels were thrown out at the plate including three by Ranger Wiens at shortstop.

Leadoff hitter Andrew D'Angelo scored the first run in the game for the Rebels after walking. A hit by Johnson moved D'Angelo to third and he scored on an RBI single by Nielsen. UNLV made the score 3-0 with two more runs in the top of the third. Nielsen knocked in the second and third RBI in the game with a double.

BYU tied the game in the bottom of the third, scoring three runs with two outs. Rob Itri singled in Ryan Chambers, and Brandon Taylor doubled off the center field wall, scoring Wiens and Itri.

Back-to-back doubles by Wade Vest and Chambers gave the Cougars a 4-3 lead in the fourth inning. The hit by Vest extended his hitting streak to 10 games, tying the team's season high with Ben Saylor. Saylor extended his hitting streak to seven and Chamers extended to five.

UNLV and BYU both scored two runs in the fifth inning, making it 6-5 Cougars. In the sixth, Johnson doubled in Peter White to tie the game. Ryan Ruiz then gave the Rebels a 7-6 lead with an RBI single.

Wiens tied the score at seven with a double in the sixth inning. The Cougars then took an 8-7 lead in the seventh on a RBI single by Tim Law. White singled in the tying run in the ninth inning for the Rebels with two outs.

BYU and UNLV play game two of the three game series Friday at 6:30 p.m. The game can be listened to live on KOVO 960 AM and followed through live stats at www.byucougars.com.
