Weaver Baffles Cougar Hitters

LONG BEACH -- Wade Vest spoiled Long Beach State starter Jered Weaver's no-hitter with an infield single in the sixth inning of a 3-1 BYU loss on Friday.

After Weaver retired the first 17 BYU batters, Vest hit an infield blooper, creating confusion among the Dirtbags. The ball dropped and stayed in fair territory, resulting in the end of Weaver's perfect game after five and two-thirds innings.

Tim Law added BYU's (4-15) second hit with an RBI double in the eighth inning to score Ben Saylor who had reached on a walk.

For the second time in five starts, Weaver (5-0) struck out 10 to begin the game. Weaver struck out 10 in the first three innings against USC on Feb. 14 in a 3-1 Dirtbag victory. Weaver broke his collegiate strikeout record with 15 in seven and two-thirds innings against BYU. It is the fifth game in a row the junior has reached double digits in strikeouts.

Nathan Hess (1-2) took the loss in his first start for BYU. He pitched three innings, allowing one-unearned run on two hits and striking out two.

The No. 7 Dirtbags (11-3) scored their first run in the first inning. Shortstop Troy Tulowitzki led off with a single. After moving to third on a BYU error, Tulowitzki scored on a sacrifice fly by catcher Brad Davis.

In the fourth inning, Davis scored the second run for Long Beach State. After singling up the middle, Davis stole second and went to third on a passed ball in the same play. He then scored on a wild pitch strikeout.

Long Beach State added its third run in the sixth inning. Josh Buhagiar hit the Dirtbags' fourth single to lead off the inning. The right fielder then stole second, reached third on a wild pitch and scored on a passed ball.

The Cougars play Cal State Northridge on Saturday at 1 p.m. (PST). The game is not available for live stats or live audio, but check www.byucougars.com for results following the game.
