SEATTLE -- Three consecutive singles paved the way Friday for a second straight walk-off victory by Seattle University over BYU in an 8-7 win.

The Cougars, now 18-22, took a three-run cushion into the bottom of the ninth, but relievers surrendered walks and an error as the Redhawks improved to 7-28.

A two-out RBI double to right field by Austin Hall scored Ryan Bernal to put the Cougars on the board, 3-1 in the second inning. Dane Nielsen singled in Hall to make the score the same as Thursday’s 16-inning final, 3-2.

Alex Wolfe doubled off the glove with two-outs and advance to third on a wild pitch, but was stranded in the third.

Bernal led off the fourth with a single and scored off Nielsen’s one-out single to again close the gap to one run, 4-3.

The Cougars got their first lead at 5-4 when Sean McNaughton hit a two-run homer with two outs to bring in Bernal in the fifth.

Hall hit a one-out triple in the eighth and scored on a sac-fly by Nielsen to put BYU up 6-4.

Brandon Relf stole home in the ninth when the Redhawks bit on a pickoff attempt to get Wolfe at first, putting the score at 7-4.

BYU looks for its first win in Seattle on Saturday morning when it takes on No. 26 Portland.
