Stone Throws Nine Innings in Inaugural MWC Victory

LAS VEGAS, Nev.--Sophomore Jeff Stone pitched a complete nine-inning game Thursday as BYU defeated UNLV, 9-1, in the inaugural Mountain West Conference baseball game.

Stone, now 4-2, surrendered six hits, gave up one unearned run and one walk in striking out three Rebels as BYU pulled even for the first time this season with a 10-10 record.

Stone received help from his teammates in the form of 16 hits, including a fourth-inning double by freshman Kainoa Obrey. Obrey's double opened the floodgates for a five-run, three-error fifth inning. Obrey was one of eight Cougars to get a hit in the victory. Co-captain Nate Mathis had three hits, including a lead-off triple in the third inning for BYU's initial run and a double in the fifth.

Aaron Whitley led all Cougars in a four-of-five effort, followed by Matt Carson with three hits and two RBI and Shane Belliston with two hits and three RBI. Carson hit a lead-off homer in the seventh for the only dinger of the day.

UNLV, now 6-16, hosts BYU on Friday in a game that can be heard live locally over KSRR Radio at 4 p.m. MDT and again on Saturday at 2 p.m. MDT.

Stone's complete game was BYU's second of the year. Earlier this season Micah Mangrum pitched a complete seven-inning game at Mesa State.
