Winning Streak Ends at Five

SAN -- Jeff Mousser gave up only four hits as BYU lost 2-1 in a pitchers' dual at San Diego State Thursday, ending its five game winning streak.

Mousser (3-3) was sharp, giving up only four hits in nine innings of work. Only three Aztec runners were able to reach second base.

BYU (12-15, 5-5) had more than twice as many hits as San Diego State (14-18, 7-3) in a rematch of last year's Mountain West Conference Tournament Championship game.

"[Mousser] had an exceptional night," said BYU Head Coach Vance Law. "He had great zip on his fastball and was able to locate his breaking pitches."

San Diego State center fielder Anthony Gwynn scored the first run of the game in the first inning. After leading the game off with a bunt single, Gwynn advanced to second on a balk, stole third, and finally scored on a ground out to the shortstop.

The Aztecs scored their second run of the night on a home run to deep left field by Rielly Embrey in the seventh, increasing the margin to 2-0. Embrey and Gwynn were the only two Aztecs to record hits against Mousser.

Cougar Rob Itri reached base in the eighth and advanced to second one out later on a bunt single by Wade Vest. Itri then scored on a single up the middle by Doug Jackson to cut the Aztecs' lead in half, 2-1.

BYU threatened in the ninth when Kainoa Obrey, who was 3-for-4 on the night, started the inning with a hard single up the middle. Pinch runner, Beau Seil, stole second one out later, but was unable to score.

Ryan Chambers and Ranger Wiens increased their hitting streaks to 11 and seven games, respectively.

The Cougars are 2-6 in one-run contests this season.

Game two of the series will be played tomorrow at 7 p.m., MST at Tony Gwynn Stadium in San Diego.
