LONG BEACH -- The BYU softball team’s pitching staff led the Cougars at the Mayfair Invitational with a 5-0 win over Iowa State, followed by an 8-2 win against Wisconsin on Friday. The Cougars are now 9-9 on the season.

The pitchers combined for 14 innings with no earned runs. Junior Christie Zinanti tossed the complete-game shutout over Iowa State. She allowed four hits with five strikeouts, while only walking one batter.

Sophomore Paige Affleck led the attack against the Badgers in the nightcap striking out a season-best 12 batters to tie her career record.

In the second inning against Iowa State, Caschjen Davis got the Cougars on the board with an RBI single. Senior Monica Gonzales brought in Davis on a bunt single. Both Gonzales and freshman Coreen Lopez scored to give BYU a 4-0 lead after two innings.

Gonzales extended the BYU lead in the fifth inning, on a bunted ball from freshman Tiffany Messerschmidt to finish the game 5-0.

Against Wisconsin the Cougars jumped ahead with one run in the first inning. Messerschmidt scored when an error at second base kept sophomore Jessica Purcell alive.

Wisconsin took the lead in the third inning, scoring two unearned runs, but Affleck held the team scoreless for the remainder of the game.

The Cougars tied the score in the fifth inning, scoring the only earned run of the game. Purcell singled to left field, with two runners on.

In the sixth inning BYU extended its lead in the sixth inning by capitalizing on the Badgers’ mistakes to score five unearned runs on a total of four hits.

Davis led off the eighth inning with a double and pinch-hitter Stephanie Hopkins brought her home, giving the Cougars an 8-2 win.

BYU continues plat at the Mayfair Invitational on Saturday when they face Cal State Northridge at 8:45 a.m. (PST) followed by Long Beach State at 1:15 p.m.
