Santa Clara Broncos win 9-3

SANTA CLARA -- A three-run first inning set the pace for Santa Clara University in a 9-3 victory over BYU on Monday.

The Cougars, who struck out 13 times in the game, now fall to 1-6 on the season while Santa Clara improves to 3-1.

Santa Clara loaded the bases in the first inning with no outs and came away with a 3-0 lead to start things off. First baseman Will Thompson scored the third run by stealing home after Jason Matteucci stole second. The Broncos added a fourth run in the third when Matteucci doubled in a runner from first.

Ben Saylor put the Cougars on the board with his first double of the year to lead off the fourth inning. After Rob Itri moved him to third on a groundout, he scored on a wild pitch. Saylor has hit safely in all seven of BYU's games.

The Broncos gained the run back in the fifth inning. In the seventh, a BYU error allowed Santa Clara to score three unearned runs, giving them an 8-1 lead. Third baseman Dustin Realini hit a two-run single, giving him four RBI on the night.

Jeff Hiestand hit his first home run of the season in the eighth, a two-run shot to right field.

Paul Jacinto struck out six in four and two-thirds innings, suffering his third loss after allowing five runs on six hits. Santa Clara starter Chad Fillinger struck out seven in his three innings of work, allowing no runs off one hit.

The same two teams battle it out in the last game of the two-game series on Tuesday in Santa Clara, Calif., at 3 p.m. (PST). The game can be followed live on Gametracker. A link to the web cast can be found at www.byucougars.com.
