Fitu Shines in Big Win

Jessica Fitu recorded her sixth double of the season.

LAS -- Jessica Fitu highlighted a combined effort for BYU Saturday, going 3-for-5 with four RBI in a 14-8 victory over UNLV in Las Vegas.

Fitu put the Cougars on top in the third with a two-out single, scoring Andrea Ramirez to make the score 3-1. The RBI was Fitu’s 42nd of the season. Fitu would later tally her fifth RBI of the day, moving her into third place in the Mountain West Conference behind teammates Ramirez and Angeline Quiocho.

Picking up her 28th win of the season, Paige Affleck found a way to minimize the damage in the bottom of the fourth by retiring two Rebels with the bases loaded and, in the process, recorded her fifth strikeout of the game. She finished the game with eight.

Freshman shortstop J.C. Clayton was the spark plug in the fifth inning for the Cougars, starting a four-run inning with a lead-off walk. Clayton was 3-for-5 on the day with a triple and three runs. Following an RBI single by Fitu, Amanda Kellum put the Cougars on top for good, hitting a three-run bases-clearing double in the same frame to lengthen the lead to 7-2.

Reigning MWC player of the week Kristin Delahoussaye tacked on an insurance run for Cougars in the sixth, belting a solo home run, her fifth of the season. Quiocho followed suite in the seventh by belting her 26th home run of the season. With the shot, Quiocho recorded her sixth home run and 18th RBI of the week.

The Cougars return to action Monday at 3 p.m. against Utah State in Logan.
