OREM -- BYU (38-17, 13-3) completed the season sweep of Utah Valley State (23-29) with a 6-3 victory Tuesday afternoon.

Despite the win, BYU head coach Gordon Eakin was displeased with the team's effort and blamed himself for the lack of focus.

"We anticipated a battle," Eakin said. "You have to give credit to [Utah Valley pitcher] Jackie [Roberts] and their team, but we were looking past them to this weekend. That's probably my fault because we've been focusing on UNLV and a potential conference championship. We won't make that mistake again."

Dani Urincho-Snow hit a grand slam in the top of the first to give the Cougars a 4-0 lead. The hit was Urincho-Snow's first career grand slam. The Wolverines got two back in the bottom of the order thanks to an RBI-single by Cherylyn McGraw and a steal of home base by Cari Hamilton.

BYU added to its lead in the fifth when Emi Snow came to bat with runners on first and second. The junior smacked a double to left field bringing in Cortney Nix-Clark for the 5-2 lead. Andrea Ramirez then drove in Jodi Norton giving the Cougars a 6-2 advantage after five innings of play.

Utah Valley would score one more in the final inning for the 6-3 final, BYU's 38th win of the season. Urincho-Snow improved to 6-2 with the complete game victory, striking out five and allowing just two earned runs.

The Cougars finish up the regular season with four home games. First up is a double-header against UNLV on Thursday at 6 p.m. (MST) and 8 p.m. The 6 p.m. game will be broadcast on CSTV.
