PROVO -- In a battle for Utah County bragging rights, the Cougars crushed the UVSC Wolverines Tuesday night at Miller Field, taking both games 8-2 and 11-1.

"I was disappointed with how we played in the first game," coach Gordon Eakin said. "But I like how they responded in the second game. They played with a purpose and with intensity."

Game one got off to an explosive start as Paige Paramore started the Cougar offense with a first-inning solo homerun shot over left field. BYU would score four more runs on five hits in the first as Ianeta Le'i, Ashlyn Russell, Kate Walker and Jodi Norton crossed the plate. The Wolverines notched one error in the first on a missed fly ball to right field.

Wolverine pitcher Ericka Jones walked three in the second inning and then gave up Russell's eighth homerun of the year, a three-run shot crushed straight over the center field fence to put the Cougars on top 8-0.

The Wolverines attempted a comeback in the fourth inning as junior Ariel Capra came into pitch for the Cougars. UVSC's Amanda Kendzior started off the inning with a single to left-center field. Shortstop Kristy Miller then homered over the center-field fence to put the Wolverines on the board with two runs. However, the Wolverines were unable to score again.

Both teams settled down in the last four innings, playing defensively and refusing to allow any more runs while leaving six runners on base.

BYU scored eight runs on eight hits and no errors in the victory. Russell was the Cougar star, going 2-4 and racking up three RBI's with her center-field homer. UVSC scored two runs on six hits and one error.

Cougar pitcher Boyce picked up the win, allowing two hits in three innings while striking out one and walking none. UVSC's Jones took the loss as she allowed eight runs on six hits, three walks and one strikeout in two innings pitched.

In game two, the Cougar bats started ringing in the second inning as Lauren Watson and Le'i got on base and Russell singled Watson home to score the first run of the game. With Le'i on second and Russell on first, Norton singled over the shortstop's head to load the bases with only one out. Le'i was called out trying to cross the plate on Milli Jones' single but Krystle Chamberlain picked up where Russell left off, singling home Russell and Norton.

With two outs, Jennifer Whiteley picked up two RBI's of her own with a double down the right field line to bring in Jones and Chamberlain. After stealing third, Whiteley added another Cougar run on a single RBI by Paige Paramore. UVSC center-fielder Britney Guernsey finally ended the inning catching Watson's pop-fly, but the damage had been done as the Cougars took a 6-0 lead on seven hits.

Le'I got the Cougars going on the third inning with a lead-off single and then advanced to second on a wild pitch. Russell walked to move Le'I up. Walker then laid down a sacrifice-bunt to move the runners up to second and third. A Norton double scored Le'i and Russell came in on a wild pitch to give the Cougars an 8-0 lead at the end of three innings.

UVSC got on the board in the fourth inning, hitting Kristy Miller home on an RBI single by Shyanne Durrant. But the Cougars were not done scoring. Paramore doubled in the bottom of the fourth to bring in Whiteley, who led-off with a triple. Debbie Dodds singled Paramore to third and Le'i brought her in with an RBI single. Russell then advanced Le'i to second with a single and Walker singled to load the bases with one out. Norton hit a sacrifice-fly to right field to bring Le'i home, but Milli Jones made the third out to end the inning with an 11-1 Cougar lead.

UVSC had one last chance to get in the game in the fifth inning, but the Cougars retired the side in order, ending the game with an 11-1 win by virtue of the eight-run rule.

BYU scored 11 runs on 15 hits and no errors in the win. Pitcher Niki Anderson picked up the victory with three hits, one earned run, one walk and six strikeouts in five innings. UVSC's Kristy Miller earned the loss as UVSC scored one run on three hits and no errors.

With the sweep, the Cougars improve to 26-12 on the season while UVSC drops to 18-15. BYU will next be in action Thursday at 6 p.m. against Pacific at Miller Field. The game will be televised live on BYUTV.
