Tough Opening Day for Cougars

TEMPE -- No. 16 BYU took early leads against No. 14 Oregon and Texas Tech but ultimately dropped both games by scores of 3-2 and 7-5, respectively, to open the season on the first day of the Kajiwaka Classic.

"The bright side of it is if we would’ve played fundamentals we would’ve won them both," said BYU head coach Gordon Eakin. "We just didn’t play the type of ball we need to pay to beat those quality teams. I look forward to a better game tomorrow."

Senior Caschjen Atagi hit a single in the top of the third inning, bringing in sophomore JC Clayton and junior Tiffany Messerschmidt for BYU's two runs.

Senior Paige Affleck finished with four strikeouts, allowing four walks, three hits and two earned runs in six innings for the Cougars.

"It was a good battle against another very good team," Eakin said. "Oregon is a very good team and we played right with them."

In the second game of the day against the Big 12's Texas Tech, the Cougars again took an early lead when freshman Katie Manuma had her first career hit, a home run in the bottom of the second inning that also brought in Atagi.

Manuma also brought in BYU's third run on a single, the Cougars closed the gap to 5-3, stopping a Red Raider run of five-straight scores.

Texas Tech held the same margin going into the bottom of the seventh inning. Junior Jessica Dugas kept BYU alive with a two-out double when junior Delaney Willard followed with a home run to right field, forcing extra innings.

But a triple play in the bottom of the eighth went against the Cougars and Texas Tech tacked on two runs in the ninth to come out on top.

"I was proud of how they fought back," Eakin said. "We’ll just have to play better defense tomorrow."

BYU will face Portland State at 9 a.m. and Ole Miss at 11:30 a.m. tomorrow in its second day at the Kajikawa Classic.
