Walker shuts down Gaels in 11-0 win

Image

PROVO, Utah – Easton Walker pitched six shutout innings as BYU beat Saint Mary’s 11-0 Friday night at Larry H. Miller Field.

"We wanted to put the pressure on them early," BYU head coach Mike Littlewood said. "We were hoping to just get on the board in the first inning but putting up five runs was nice."

BYU vs. Saint Mary’s Box Score

Game Summary

  • The Cougars won their seventh-straight game, the longest streak of the season

  • Brock Hale homered for the fourth time in the last three games

  • Easton Walker continued his run as the nation’s only NCAA qualifying pitcher (at least one inning pitched per team game) with an ERA of 0.00

Player Highlights

  • Easton Walker: W (3-0), 6 IP, 3 K, 3 H, 3 BB, 0 ER

  • Brian Hsu: 3-4, BB, 3 R, RBI

  • Brock Hale: 2-4, HR, 2 R, 4 RBI

For the second-straight night, BYU baseball scored five first-inning runs with a combination of hits and help from three Gael errors. Brian Hsu walked, Noah hill hit a bunt single and Brock Hale reached on an error to quickly load the bases. Jackson Cluff was hit by a pitch to bring in the first run, then Austin Deming reached safely off a dropped fly ball to center field to score a run.

After an Abraham Valdez sacrifice fly that scored Hale, Mitch McIntyre singled, then went to second on a bad throw by the Saint Mary's catcher that helped bring in two more Cougars.

BYU tacked on another in the second, with Hale doubling to score Hsu from first. In the third inning, Hsu drove home McIntyre on a single through the left side. Jackson Cluff scored on a passed ball in the fourth for an 8-0 BYU lead.

Walker preserved his 0.00 ERA, throwing six innings, allowing just three hits and fanning three before handing over the mound duties to Blake Inouye.

In the seventh, Hale launched a three-run shot over the left-field fence to make it 11-0 for the Cougars.

Inouye held Saint Mary's scoreless over two innings. Ayden Callahan came on to pitch the ninth and close out the shutout for BYU.

BYU looks for the series sweep Saturday at 1 p.m. MDT. The game will air on BYUtv, BYU Radio and ESPN 960.

Streaking BYU to Battle Saint Mary's

Image

PROVO, Utah - On the heels of a five-game win streak, BYU baseball (18-5, 4-2 WCC) and Saint Mary’s (16-9, 3-0) battle in a West Coast Conference series at Miller Field March 28-30.

BYU vs. Saint Mary's Game Notes

BYU has taken advantage of a homestand that has four-straight weeks, going 14-2 since the home opener on March 5. Besides a win at Utah Valley, the Cougars have played every game at Miller Field, outscoring opponents 102-52 in that span.

The success on the field has put head coach Mike Littlewood three wins away from 200 in his BYU career and four wins from reaching 100 conference victories, currently sitting at 197-148 (.570) overall and 96-69 (.582) in the WCC.

BYU is currently third in the conference standings after winning one and losing two close games against Gonzaga before sweeping Portland last week. The Gaels are first in the conference at 3-0 after sweeping Pacific at home.

The Cougars' current five-game win streak began at UVU last week when lineup changes put sophomore Jackson Cluff from second base to shortstop and freshmen Bryan Call and Austin Deming were inserted at second base and third, respectively. Call has since totaled six hits, six runs and five RBIs with a double and a home run while Deming has added six hits, five runs, two doubles and two RBIs.

The Cougar pitching staff continues to impress, ranking 20th in the nation in team WHIP at 1.19 and ranked 24th in team ERA at 3.12. 

Game one starter Jordan Wood has a 1.63 ERA this year and has not allowed more than one run in his last five starts, all of which have gone six innings or more.

Game two starter Easton Walker leads the nation with a 0.00 ERA in 25.2 innings. In his first start of the year last week, the sophomore carried a no-hitter into the sixth inning, allowing one hit and collecting five strikeouts in 6 innings.

Game three starter Justin Sterner is tied for the team lead with four wins and has a 10.13 strikeout per nine innings ratio, leading the team with 33 Ks in 29.1 innings.

Thursday's game will begin at 6 p.m. MT and will air on BYUtv's digital platforms. Friday's game will also start at 6 p.m. MT and will be shown on TheW.tv while Saturday's contest will begin at 1 p.m. MT and will be shown on BYUtv and BYUtv digital platforms.
