RIVERSIDE -- UC Riverside swept a season-opening doubleheader Friday over BYU, 12-11 and 6-4.

The Highlanders, 2-0, had a shutout going through five innings in the nightcap over BYU, now 0-2. UCR scored six unanswered runs for a come-from-behind victory in game one.

In game two, the Cougars didn’t get a base-runner until the fourth inning when Andrew Law reached on an error, but was retired an an inning-ending doubleplay.

In the fifth inning Bryce Ayoso singled for the Cougars’ first hit of the game, but was stranded at second base after advancing on a passed ball.

In the sixth of the nightcap, Austin Hall led off by advancing to second on an overthrow error. He moved to third on Stephen Wells’ single, a game short of extending his 15-game hitting streak prior to his church mission. Hall scored on Sean McNaughton’s sac-fly. Then Law singled to move Wells to third. Law stole second before he and Wells scored from Jonathan Cluff’s two-out single to leftfield.

Hall scored BYU’s fourth run in the ninth off a McNaughton triple.

In game one, McNaughton drew a lead-off walk as the first batter of the season, stole second and advanced to third on a ground out before scoring on a Cluff single to centerfield.

Law beat out a one-out single to the pitcher in the third and scored off Cluff’s two-out double. Ayoso then walked before Ryan Bernal hit a three-run homer to right field.

BYU loaded the bases in the fifth, starting when Ayoso drew a one-out base on balls. The Highlanders were forced to make a pitching change with two on, then Brandon Relf walked to load the bases. Chase Frampton singled to centerfield to score Ayoso, but Bernal was thrown out at home.

UCR tied the score in the two-run fifth as Justin Shutt was relieved on the mound by freshman lefty Mark Anderson.

The Cougars rallied in the sixth when McNaughton led off with a single and was driven in by Law’s double to rightfield. Alex Wolfe drove in Law as he also doubled to right. With the bases loaded, UCR made another pitching change and Bernal walked off him to score Wolfe.

That sixth-inning rally continued when Cluff and Ayoso scored off wild pitches.

The two teams meet again on Saturday at noon PST.
