Saturday Splits

LONG BEACH -- After a 5-0 defeat at the hands of Long Beach State, the BYU softball team rallied back with a 5-3 win against Cal State Northridge at the Mayfair Invitational. The Cougars are now 10-10 on the season.

After splitting the doubleheader, BYU finished the Invitational 3-1.

“It’s nice to win three out of four on the road,” BYU head coach Gordon Eakin said. “We are struggling with consistency. We will play great but face defensive let downs that we need to correct.”

Against Cal State Northridge, two errors in the first inning gave way a pair of unearned runs that gave the Matadors a 2-0 lead over BYU. The lead was furthered in the top of the second inning when a wild pitch brought in a runner.

Despite falling behind early, the Cougars rallied in the fifth inning to score five runs. With two outs, back-to-back errors brought in junior Whitney Nix-Thomas and senior Stephanie Hopkins.

With the Cal State Northridge lead cut to one run, junior Angeline Quiocho launched a home run over the fence with two runners on to take a 5-3 lead.

Junior Christie Zinanti (5-5) received the win after tossing 5.1 innings, giving up four hits. Paige Affleck grabbed her first save of the season after allowing no hits in 1.2 innings of relief.

Affleck (5-5) started the first game of the twinbill. She gave up one run in the second inning, when the defense conceded the runner to record an out.

In the top of the seventh inning a double and back-to-back singles brought in a total of four runs for the 49s.

Affleck was charged with only one earned run during the game, allowing six hits and eight strikeouts. The offense produced five hits, but left four baserunners stranded.

The Cougars continue play when they travel to Fresno State on March 5 to face off at the Toyota Bingham Classic for a set of five games.
