PROVO -- Senior second baseman Kristin Delahoussaye hit two home runs and a triple, three of seven extra-base hits for BYU in a 9-0 win over Utah State on Tuesday at Gail Miller Field.

Delahoussaye went 3-for-3 with four RBI and three runs in the first multi-home run game of her career. She also set a new career high with 11 total bases and tied her career best in runs.

Freshman right fielder Carly Duckworth hit her second home run in as many games to end the contest early by the mercy rule while senior catcher Jessica Fitu’s two-run rocket came in the first inning, giving her eight homers on the year.

Duckworth finished hitting 2-for-3 with three RBI and one run and Fitu added two RBI and two runs on 2-for-3 from the plate.

BYU (17-14) scored in each of the game’s five innings against Utah State (5-27), starting with Delahoussaye’s leadoff triple in the first and Fitu’s home run two batters later to give BYU an early 2-0 lead.

The Cougars scored two runs with two outs for the second-straight inning on Delahoussaye’s first home run of the day. The senior also brought in junior Tiffany Messerschmidt after Messerschmidt had reached first base on a hit that died right in front of the plate.

BYU extended its lead to seven on Delahoussaye's second home run in the fourth inning. Duckworth closed it out with her fourth home run of the year and BYU's fourth of the game, also scoring senior Caschjen Atagi.

Atagi matched a career high by hitting two doubles while adding a run and a stolen base. Messerschmidt also had two hits to go with two runs and a stolen base in her first action back after missing the last nine games with a leg injury.
