Cougars Split Again

(Photo by Mark Philbrick/BYU Photo)

CLEARWATER -- The BYU softball team (16-13) slugged its way to a 5-4 extra-innings win over Ball State before a rally in the sixth inning gave Florida Gulf Coast a 5-4 win over the Cougars at the USF Underarmour Showcase on Saturday afternoon.

Against Ball State, Junior Angeline Quiocho hit a walkoff three-run homer in the bottom of the 10th inning to yield a Cougar victory. The Cougars fell behind 2-0, but tied the game in the sixth inning to force extra innings.

Ball State managed to bring in two runs in the 10th inning, on a single and a double, to take a 4-2 lead. Quiocho’s home run came after the tiebreaker rule granted the Cougars a baserunner and a walk put two runners on for the slugger’s third home run on the season.

Junior pitcher Christie Zinanti (8-6) received the win after throwing 10 innings, allowing three earned runs off of seven hits. She struck out eight batters while walking only one.

In the second game, BYU jumped ahead of FGCU with three runs in the top of the third inning. Quiocho brought in a run with a sacrifice fly to right field to bring in the first run of the game. Back-to-back singles from sophomore Jessica Purcell and junior Andrea Ramirez brought in two runs, before a line out ended the scoring rally.

After holding FCGU scoreless through five innings, an error brought in the first Eagles run and a grand slam conceded the Cougar lead.

Affleck, who received the loss for BYU, allowed only two hits in the inning. Two errors and a walk kept the bases juiced for FGCU, before a home run to left-center cleared the bases.

In the top of the seventh inning Andrea Ramirez hit a ground ball to bring in a run, cutting the deficit within one. The Cougar comeback fell short as the final batter struck out to end the game.

After splitting the doubleheader, BYU is now 16-13 on the season.

The Cougars next head to Sacramento, Calif., for four games, beginning March 19 against Sacramento State. The appearance at the Capital Classic will complete a 33-game road trip to begin the season.

BYU opens its home season on March 24 against Boise State at 1 p.m.
