SAN -- Summer Tobias' pitching and timely BYU hitting led the Cougars to a sweep over No. 24 San Diego State, 4-0 and 5-3 Thursday night.

With the wins BYU improves to 38-18 (13-5 MWC) while the Mountain West Conference leading Aztecs fall to 28-11 (13-3 MWC). The Cougars now stand alone in second place with the victories.

In picking up wins in both games, Tobias (21-9) became the first 20-game winner in BYU program history.

Pitching dominated the early going of game one with BYU's Tobias holding the Aztecs scoreless while San Diego State's Christina Ross held the Cougars hitless through the first five innings.

In the top of the sixth, BYU got some early inning help from a pair of SDSU errors to get runners on first and second with no outs. Emi Snow laid down the Cougars' first hit of the game: a bunt single to load the bases with nobody out.

Ianeta Le`i came up clutch for BYU knocking a RBI single to left field to give the Cougars a 1-0 lead. Later in the inning, Paige Paramore picked up a RBI walk to extend the lead.

In the bottom of the sixth, the Aztecs picked up a one-out double from Monica Alnes, who went 3-for-3 on the day. Tobias forced consecutive groundouts to get out of the inning unscathed.

BYU added important insurance runs in the top of the seventh when Cortney Nix led the inning off with a single and scored three batters later when Emi Snow crushed a two-run home run over the center field fence.

Tobias did the rest for the Cougars retiring the Aztecs in the seventh to pick up the shut out victory.

San Diego State scored first in game two. The Aztecs scored on a RBI single by Melissa Owens in the bottom of the second inning.

BYU responded with a run of its own in the top of the third inning. Jennifer Whiteley drew a walk, stole second base and scored on a RBI single by Andrea Ramirez to even the score at 1-1. The Cougars took a 2-1 lead in the top of the fourth when Le`i led the inning off with a double. She later scored when Whiteley was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded.

In the bottom of the fifth SDSU grabbed a 3-2 lead on a two-run single by Owens. BYU fought back the next half inning as the first three Cougars' hitters picked up hits. Ashlyn Russell and Paige Paramore picked up singles and scored on Jodi Norton's 13th homer of the season, a three-run shot that gave BYU a 5-3 advantage.

After the Cougars regained the lead, Tobias retired the Aztecs in order in the sixth and seventh innings to shut the door.

BYU wraps up its regular season schedule when it heads to Las Vegas to play UNLV Saturday. The doubleheader is slated to start at 4 p.m. (MDT)
