BYU Bounces Back with Two Wins

Sophomore Ianeta Le`i gave the Cougars a spark offensively in the games against Dartmouth and Central Connecticut State. She hit 6-8 (.750) including one home run and two triples.

Andersen pitches a no-hitter, only the second one in BYU history.

SAN DIEGO -- After a one-run loss in extra innings yesterday, the BYU softball team bounced back with wins over Dartmouth 10-5 and Central Connecticut State 8-0.

With the two wins, the Cougars improve to 12-7 on the season and pick up their third opponent shutout of the season.

In game one, Dartmouth got out to a quick 2-0 lead scoring a run in the bottom of the first and third innings.

BYU would respond in the top of the fourth to score two runs off a single from sophomore Ianeta Le`i.

In the top of the fifth, BYU would respond with another run off Kate Walker's single to left center to put the Cougars up by a run.

After a big three-run inning from the Big Green in the bottom of the fifth, Dartmouth took the 5-3 lead to put pressure on the Cougar offense.

Both teams remained scoreless until the top of the seventh when BYU was able to tally two runs on the board to tie the game at 5-all. The Cougar defense held the Big Green in the bottom of the seventh inning to put the game into extra innings.

The BYU offense came through with a big five-run inning in the top of the eighth, and then held Dartmouth to no hits in the bottom of the eighth to run away with the 10-5 victory.

Offensively, Le`i led the Cougars with her solid 4-5 hitting performance. Kate Walker and Jodi Norton also registered 3-5 and 2-3 hitting games, respectively.

Ariel Capra started on the mound for BYU pitching six innings, until Niki Andersen came in as a relief for the final two. Andersen struck out three of the 10 batters she faced and received the win to improve her record to 6-3.

In the second contest against CCSU, the Cougars started where they left off offensively in the Dartmouth game scoring three runs in the bottom of the first inning to take a quick 3-0 lead.

Watson, Russell, Andersen and Norton all singled in the first inning to contribute to the three runs scored.

In the bottom of the second, Watson's extra-base triple down the right field line scored Le`i, who tripled the play before, putting the Cougars up 4-0.

BYU continued hitting in the third to convert two hits into three runs and take a seven-run lead. One highlight in the inning was a double from Norton, to make seven on the year.

Le`i would triple again in the bottom of the fifth inning to score the final BYU run and lead the Cougars in the five-inning, 8-0 shutout.

Andersen pitched her first no-hitter of her career in a complete five-innings on the mound. The no-hitter was only the second in BYU school history and the first since Maryon DeWitt-Wallentine held Utah State hitless on March 21, 2001. She was tough defensively striking out nine of the 18 batters she faced.

BYU will play in its final two games of the San Diego Classic on Saturday against UC Riverside at 9 a.m. PT (10 a.m. MT) and Indiana at 1 p.m. PT (2 p.m. MT). Both games will be played at San Diego State University.
