SALT LAKE CITY -- Utah put an end to BYU's eight-game winning streak as the Utes swept the Cougars, 8-5 and 7-2, at Ute Field.

BYU falls to 31-16 and 8-4 in the Mountain West Conference with the losses. Utah moves into a second-place tie with the victories.

Pitching dominated the early innings of game one. BYU's Summer Tobias and Utah's Meghan Dyer shutting down opposing hitters. Tobias yielded only one hit and one walk through the three frames.

The game remained scoreless through 3 ý innings before Utah exploded in the bottom of the fourth for six runs. All of the Utes' runs came with two outs in the inning. Utah sent 11 batters to the plate and recorded six hits. Three of the runs came after a costly Cougar error.

BYU bounced back in the top of the fifth. After Ashlyn Russell led the inning off with a single to left field, Emi Snow crushed her fourth home run of the season.

The Cougars appeared to be geared for a big inning as Jennifer Whiteley and Jodi Norton followed Snow's bomb with back-to-back singles with no outs in the fifth. Dyer was able to record two outs before walking Krystle Chamberlain to load the bases and bring Le`i to the plate. Le`i broke BYU's single season RBI record on a two-run single to center to cut the lead to 6-4.

Utah extended its lead with another two-out rally. The Utes put two more runs on the board with two down in fifth to widen their lead to 8-4.

The Cougars battled back again as Paige Paramore drilled her first home run of the season to lead off the seventh inning. Cortney Nix and Le`i single to give BYU two runners on base with one out in the inning. The Cougars were unable to come through as Dyer retired the final two outs to give Utah the 8-5 victory.

In game two, BYU jumped out to an early lead when Norton came up with a RBI single in the top of the second to give the Cougars a 1-0 lead. The Utes, taking advantage of two hit batsmen and two walks, tied the game. Diana Phillips gave Utah a 3-1 lead on a two-run single.

In the fourth inning, the Utes broke the game wide open when Devina Quintero nailed a grand slam with two outs in the inning to put Utah ahead 7-1.

Meanwhile, BYU couldn't get anything going against Utes' twirler Karina Cannon as the Cougars managed only two runs and five hits in the defeat.

BYU returns to action when it travels to Cedar City to play a doubleheader at Southern Utah Tuesday before returning home to finish its home season against New Mexico and Colorado State.
