Cougars Lose Extra-Inning Games at Utah

SALT LAKE CITY -- The BYU women's softball team lost two eight-inning close games against the University of Utah 2-3, 7-8, Saturday. The Cougars are now 26-18, 3-7 on the year while the Utes improve to 19-31, 7-3.

In the first game of the double-header, the Utes jumped out to a quick 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first inning. The Cougars answered with one run off walks in the second and third inning to take a 2-1 lead. The game remained close until Utah tied the game in the fifth inning. Utah's Traci Keller hit the game winning triple in the bottom of the eighth to seal the win for the Utes.

Niki Andersen (6-7) pitched the entire game giving up two earned runs and allowing seven hits. Sophomore Oli Keohohou went 1-2 with a run and three walks. Arron Layns went 2-4 and Brooke Cadiente went 2-5.

In game two, BYU fell behind 1-5 in the second inning but was able to battle back to a 7-5. The momentum swing game in the third inning when Keohohou hit a solo shot, her 16th of the season. The All-American from Newbury Park, Calif. is only five home runs away from reaching the 21 home runs hit last season. Southpaw Ariel Capra also hit a solo shot in the third, the first of her collegiate career. The Utes fought back to tie the score and send the game into extra innings. Utah's Melissa Stanke hit a solo home run with no outs in the bottom of the eighth to complete the sweep.

"Utah was able to get the key hits to win the game," head coach Mary Kay Amicone said. "We left too many runners on base and it's disappointing to lose these close conference games."

The Cougars will host San Diego State on Friday, April 19 at Gail Miller Field at 5 p.m. The first game of the doubleheader will be broadcast on KBYU and BYUTV. UNLV comes into town on Saturday, April 20 for a doubleheader starting at noon.
