SAN JOSE -- Ryan Bernal's single was the game-winning RBI in the seven-run ninth inning Thursday as BYU beat San Jose State, 11- 5.

Bernal and Jonathan Cluff were the big hitters for the Cougars and Kevin Sloan was one of three stalwart pitchers for BYU. Bernal and Cluff

each had a pair of RBI and had three and four hits, respectively. Bernal belted a lead-off homer in the fourth inning to put BYU up 2-0.

Teammate Sean McNaughton hit a two-run, one-out homer in the ninth, scoring BYU's 10th and 11th runs.

San Jose State tied the game at 3-3 in the seventh after Sloan inherited runners on the corners with one out when he entered the game. Sloan benefited from a double play in the eighth and remained undefeated at 4-0 as his teammates took a commanding lead before he was replaced by Mark Anderson to start the ninth.

BYU improved to 11-13, while SJSU falls to 9-14 as the two teams ready for a Friday night meeting in the second of a three-game series.
