Host Fresno State Too Much for Cougars

FRESNO -- After a two-week layoff, the BYU softball team (9-5) came out rusty and lost to Fresno State 3-1 in a game scheduled against the host of the Hedrick's Hallowell Chevrolet Classic Tournament this weekend. The Cougars must regroup for their toughest opponent of the season tomorrow against No. 1 UCLA, who have a 22-1 record.

Fresno State scored a run in the bottom of the first inning to take the quick 1-0 lead. The Cougars battled through a defensive battle to tie the game up in the fifth inning on a run scored by sophomore Debbie Dodds, who got on base on a Bulldog error and then scored on another error later in the inning.

Freshman Ashlyn Russell led the Cougars, who mustered only four hits, with a 2-3 outing at the plate. Sophomore Arron Layns and Ashlyn Russell went 1-3.

Senior Cynthia Fallowfield (1-2) picked up the loss giving up seven hits and three earned runs in six innings on the mound while striking out two batters.

After the UCLA game tomorrow, BYU will continue the tournament playing No. 15 DePaul and Cal-Poly on Friday. The Cougars will then finish the tournament on Saturday with games against St. Johns and a rematch against Fresno State. The Cougars are 0-3 all-time against the Bulldogs.
