Revenge Taken in Long Beach

LAKEWOOD -- After losing by a single run last week to Long Beach State, the BYU softball team came back on Friday to defeat the host 49ers 2-0 after dropping a 5-3 decision to Sacramento State earlier in the day at the Long Beach Invitational.

Freshman pitcher Tori Almond pitched into the seventh inning to earn the win, getting seven strikeouts and scattering five hits and four walks to go to 2-2 on the year.

Senior Jessica Fitu went 2-for-3 with a run and an RBI while sophomore Alexandra Hudson had the Cougars' other RBI on a double.

Hudson's double with two outs in the fourth scored Fitu for BYU's first run of the game.

In the following frame, junior Jessica Dugas started a two-out rally for the Cougars with a single, followed by another single from sophomore JC Clayton. With two on, Fitu hit a long single to right field to bring in Dugas.

Long Beach State (13-7) loaded the bases with one out in the bottom of the seventh inning, prompting the BYU coaches to bring in senior Paige Affleck to relieve Almond. Affleck got the Cougars out of the game with the win by drawing two ground outs.

Game 2

Junior Delaney Willard had two hits, one a double, along with a run while freshman Katie Manuma had an RBI single for BYU in the Cougars' loss to Sacramento State in the first game of the day.

BYU scored the game's first run in the bottom of the first inning after senior Kristin Delahoussaye singled to lead off, then made her way around the bases to eventually score on a sacrifice fly by senior Jessica Fitu.

Sacramento State (3-7) answered right back in the top of the second, scoring three runs to take the lead. BYU drew two outs with two Hornet runners on base, but three straight singles and a Cougar throwing error kept the inning alive and gave Sacramento State a 3-1 lead.

Senior Caschjen Atagi hit a single and Willard smacked a double in the fourth inning for the Cougars before Manuma and freshman Madisen Robb each hit RBI-singles to tie up the game, 3-3. BYU had a chance to add more runs after junior Jessica Dugas loaded the bases with only on out, but a fielder's choice at home and a ground out stopped BYU from retaking the lead.

Instead, Sacramento State utilized two infield errors by the Cougars in the sixth inning to bring around two runs, then retired six of BYU's final seven batters to come away with the win.
