PROVO -- A solid team effort, with multiple-run homers from related players gave the Cougars (18-7) the edge over UC Santa Barbara and No. 9 Stanford.

“I was extremely pleased with our overall performance after our 12 day break,” BYU head coach Gordon Eakin said. “We came out tonight and played both games competitively and aggressively.”

Their first game against UC Santa Barbara started off quiet until the top of the third when J.C. Clayton and Angie Quiocho hit back-to-back doubles giving the Cougars a one-run lead.

Andrea Ramirez followed with a single right up the middle which advanced Quiocho to third putting her in scoring position.

During the very next at-bat, Ramirez took off for second as the first pitch was thrown and made it safely to second. As soon as the UC Santa Barbara started throwing to second, Quiocho stole home scored BYU’s second run.

At the top of the second, Caschjen Atagi and Kristin Delahoussaye hit back-to-back singles. One batter later, Quiocho stepped up to the plate, and blasted a three-run homer over the right-center field wall.

Quiocho accounted four out of the five Cougars’ runs against UC Santa Barbara, and scored the fifth when she stole home in the third.

“Angie is definitely in the zone right now and playing really well,” Eakin said. “She is playing a complete game. She has speed, power and an impressive knowledge of the game.”

Right-handed pitcher Christie Zinanti was back in action and looking great from the mound after battling a nagging back and rib injury.

Zinanti faced 27 batters, gave up only 3 hits, striking out two batters and not giving up a single walk.

“It was really nice to see Chrisite pitch as well as she is capable of tonight,” Eakin said. “She feels great, and we look forward to having her back at full strength.”

In the second game of its doubleheader, BYU faced its fifth ranked team of the season, No. 9 Stanford.

The Cardinals were the first to score in the bottom of the third with two runs off of a bases loaded situation.

The Cougars fired back in the top of the fourth when Ramirez sent a hard-hit single to first, which was followed by a two-run homer from Jessica Fitu bringing the game all tied up.

Delaney Willard hit her third home run of the season in the top of the fifth giving BYU a one-run lead, and then Alexandra Hudson brought in the Cougars’ fourth run with a one-run double in the top of the sixth.

This 4-2 victory over No. 9 Stanford marked BYU’s fourth win over a ranked team of the season.

“I think the consistency we are looking for when playing these ranked teams is starting to show on the field,” Eakin said. “This team is showing solid and consistent growth and we want to remain at this level for the rest of the season.”

The Cougars return to the field Saturday to face Santa Clara and the University of Pacific at 11:15 a.m. and 3:45 p.m. (PST).
