BYU Loses Heartbreaker to Utah, Comes back to Shutout Utes in Game Two

SALT LAKE CITY -- The BYU softball team lost a 11-10 heartbreaker at Utah in eight innings, but came back in game two to capture an explosive 13-0 shutout victory on Saturday at Ute Field.

With the split, the Cougars now post a 28-15, 5-6 overall record, while the Utes move to 16-26, 5-7.

It was a great day offensively for the BYU softball team as they scored an impressive 23 runs off of 36 hits in the doubleheader.

With the score tied 9-9 in game one after the bottom of the seventh inning, an extra eighth inning was in order. Junior Lauren Watson's single to centerfield in the top of the eighth brought in one-run to put the Cougars up 10-9.

But with two outs in the bottom of the eighth inning, the Utes rallied back to get the 11-10 win on their home field off a two-run homer from Devina Quintero through left center.

Sophomore Brooke Boyce started on the mound to pitch two innings and was relieved by junior Niki Andersen for the final six innings of play. Andersen (14-6) picked up the loss, while Utah's Brianna Gourdin (12-5) got the win in a complete eight innings.

In the second match up against the Utes, BYU responded with a huge 13-0 shutout in five-innings. Nine Cougar players contributed to the 18 total hits in the game.

The Cougars jumped out to an early two-run lead after the top of the first inning. The team would add two more runs in the top of the third, four in the top of the fourth, and five in the top of the fifth to end the game with the comfortable 13-run lead.

Boyce (11-6) pitched the complete five innings to allow five hits and no runs in the game to mark her second shutout game of the week.

Overall in the Utah doubleheader, eight BYU batters hit .300 or better including six who batted .500 or over. The team also hit eight extra base doubles, one triple and six home runs.

The Cougars are now batting outstanding .311 as a team. Sophomore Paige Paramore leads BYU in batting average with a .369. She is currently on a 12-game hitting streak going into next week's contests.

The Cougars will be back in action next weekend as they play host to New Mexico on Friday, April 30 starting at 4 p.m. and Colorado State on Saturday, May 1 starting at 2 p.m.

These two conference games will be the final home games of the season for BYU as they will play Utah State, UNLV and SDSU on the road to complete the schedule in preparation for the MWC Championships in Fort Collins, Colorado on May 13-15.
