Riordin's Two Homers Defeat Cougars

MALIBU -- Luke Riordan's two home runs and four RBI delivered Cal State Northridge a 6-3 victory over BYU on Saturday.

The loss is the Cougars' second straight in the final game of the Battle at the Beach Tournament hosted by Pepperdine.

BYU (4-13) had a 3-1 lead entering the bottom of the fifth inning. Cal State Northridge (6-10) tied the game with a run in the fifth and a solo shot by Riordan in the sixth. The Matadors broke the tied game with a three-run blast by Riordan in the seventh.

An early substitute for first baseman Michael Faulk, Riordan entered the game in the first inning as a pinch hitter and then took over first for the rest of the game. The two home runs are his first and second of the season.

Ranger Wiens went two-for-four in the game, his second two-hit performance in as many days. He ends the tournament with a four-game hitting streak. Ryan Chambers hit his first home run of the season, a solo shot in the third inning.

Justin Su'a (1-1) started the game for BYU, receiving a no decision after allowing three runs in five and two-thirds innings. Reliever Lance Beus (0-1) suffered his first loss of the season, giving up three runs off two hits.

The Matadors will play Nevada at 1 p.m. (PST) in the tournament's final day on Sunday. Cal State Northridge lost to tournament host Pepperdine on Friday, 7-4.

The Cougars return to California on Thursday to play Cal State Northridge in two games split between a match-up with Long Beach State on Friday. BYU will also participate in a six-team tournament hosted by Fresno State beginning Monday, March 8.
