LAS -- The bats were alive for BYU, as the Cougars blasted UC Davis, 11-0, in five innings late Thursday night.

The Cougars (5-1) dominated, scoring in each of the four innings they batted in while holding the Aggies (3-3) to only two hits.

BYU recorded a season-high in runs (11) and hits (13). Each of the Cougars nine starters recorded at least one hit.

BYU started the scoring early, with the first four Cougars' batters reaching base. Krystle Chamberlain, Jennifer Whiteley and Ianeta Le`i started the game with back-to-back-to-back singles. Chamberlain scored and Whiteley was thrown out at the plate on a passed ball to give BYU a 1-0 lead in the first inning.

In the second, the Cougars broke the game open when Andrea Ramirez and Paige Paramore connected with a pair of doubles. Overall, BYU sent eight batters to the plate in the inning, with four coming around to score. The inning ended on Paramore's RBI two-bagger when Ashlyn Russell was thrown out at the plate after trying to score from first.

Meanwhile, Summer Tobias coasted through the early innings, giving up only one hit and no runs through the first three innings. In the Cougars' side of the third, Gonzales connected with a two-out RBI triple to center field then scored on a wild pitch.

After Chamberlain and Whiteley got aboard with a pair of walks, Le`i came up with a two-run double to extend BYU's lead to 9-0. In the third inning the Cougars again sent eight batters to the plate, scoring all of their runs with two outs in the inning.

BYU added another run on four consecutive singles in the bottom of the fourth.

The Louisville Slugger Desert Classic continues for the Cougars Friday when they play Notre Dame and Purdue. Game times are approximately 12:15 and 5 p.m. (MST), respectively.
