Cougars and Lobos Trade Shutouts

PROVO, Utah (April 20 2001) -- After delaying the first game at the newly-opened Gail Miller Field for three hours due to rain, the BYU (25-20, 4-3) softball team split a doubleheader with New Mexico (33-18-1, 6-5-1) Friday evening, losing the first game 2-0 but winning the nightcap 7-0.

In game one, BYU couldn't solve Lobo pitcher Hayley Punter (12-4), who shutout the Cougars, allowing no runs on three hits while striking out four. In the second inning, Kathy Moore started the inning by driving a solo home run over the left field fence to put the Lobos up 1-0. Elena Cranmer drove in Rachael Wennekamp with a double to left center, giving the Lobos a 2-0 lead. Maryon DeWitt-Wallentine (12-13) got the loss for BYU, giving up two runs on four hits. Elizabeth Pierce-Boydston and Lindsey Hodgen-Kelly had the only two BYU hits while freshman Oli Keohohou was walked three times.

"We were flat emotionally in the first game," BYU coach Mary Kay Amicone said. "We are a much better hitting team that what we showed in the first game."

In game two, New Mexico couldn't solve Cougar pitcher Meghann Pricer (9-4), who shutout the Lobos, allowing no runs on six hits while striking out four. BYU got on the board early, scoring its first run when Hodgen-Kelly drove in Pierce-Boydston in the second inning to go up 1-0. Hodgen-Kelly again did the damage in the fourth, belting a bases-clearing triple to put the Cougars up 4-0. BYU added three more runs in the sixth on a RBI-single by Liz Smith, a fielder's choice groundout by Kari Pringle and a steal home by Keohohou. Hodgen-Kelly went 2-for-3 with four RBI to lead BYU while Keohohou was walked four times.

BYU improves to 25-20, 4-3 on the year. The Cougars resume conference play with two games against Colorado State Saturday, beginning at noon. The official grand opening celebration of Gail Miller Field will begin at 11:30 a.m.
