BYU Scrapes by Cal Poly, Boise State

LAS -- Another strong relief appearance by sophomore pitcher Hannah Howell and patient hitting were the keys in No. 23 BYU softball's 8-6 win over Cal Poly after which BYU staved off a furious run by Boise State to claim a 12-11 win at the Louisville Slugger Desert Classic on Friday.

After holding SIUE scoreless Thursday evening to earn her first win of the year, Howell came on in third inning against the Mustangs with BYU down 6-3, again allowing no runs and striking out five.

BYU drew 11 total walks against three Cal Poly pitchers. Out of eight total runs, BYU scored only two off of base hits - an RBI single from Caschjen Atagi and a solo home run by Delaney Willard. The remainder of the Cougars' runs were brought in by walks, fielder's choices and ground outs.

Three drawn walks by BYU loaded the bases, then brought in two runs in the third inning. In the fourth, BYU slowly chipped away at the Mustangs with a mixture of walks, fielder's choices and singles. After Jessica Dugas walked and JC Clayton singled, Tiffany Messerschmidt reached on an error to load the bases and Kristin Delahoussaye got enough on the ball for an RBI ground out.

After Jessica Fitu earned a free base on an intentional walk, Atagi hit an RBI single and Katie Manuma sent in another run on a fielder's choice.

Willard's solo home run, her second on the season, was BYU's only extra-base hit, coming in the sixth inning.

Clayton had three hits for the Cougars and scored three runs while Messerschmidt hit 2-for-4 with two runs and a walk.

Game 2

Senior Kristin Delahoussaye buried the slump she had been in since the beginning of the young season against Boise State, exploding for two doubles and a home run on her way to hitting 4-for-5 with five RBI and two runs. Fellow senior Jessica Fitu added a homer and a double, hitting 3-for-5 with two RBI and two runs.

Up one run at 6-5, BYU appeared to pull away with a six-run sixth inning. Junior Stacie Graham hit a triple that scored Delaney Willard and Madisen Robb. JC Clayton's single brought in Graham, and the Cougars had two on base after Tiffany Messerschmidt reached on a bunt.

Delahoussaye finished off the inning with a 3-run blast to left field, giving BYU a 12-6 lead needing three outs to finish off the Broncos.

But Boise State wouldn't quit, collecting a flurry of singles off the three Cougar pitchers needed to end the inning. Up by a single run and with runners on first and second, freshman Katie Manuma finally forced a fly ball into left field to end the game.
