Upset of No. 30 Oral Roberts

TULSA -- Freshmen pitchers Jeff Mousser and Scott Koffman led BYU to a 5-3 victory Tuesday over No. 30 Oral Roberts.

The victory improves BYU's record to 30-18, one more win than last season, while ORU is now 35-11. Mousser pitched seven innings to pick up his third victory of the season against no losses, while Koffman just missed qualifying for his second save of the season. The Cougar freshmen struck out a combined eight ORU batters.

Through four innings there had only been two hits for each team, a pair of singles by BYU's Doug Jackson in the first and third innings and a pair of doubles by ORU's Chad Stewart in the third and Trevor Leu in the fifth.

In the sixth Shane Belliston extended his hitting streak to 21 games to drive in Cameron Coughlan and give BYU a 1-0 lead.

Belliston walked in the eighth and scored on Carson's one-out triple off the left field wall. Matt Carson scored off Kainoa Obrey's sac-fly to right field. Jeff Hiestand then walked and was doubled in by Seth King. Eagle ace reliever Dallas Martin, who had nine saves, relieved Stockton Davis in the eighth. Tim Law singled off Martin to drive in King to give BYU a 5-0 lead.

The bases were loaded for ORU in the fifth inning with one out, but a 1-4-6-3 double play got Mousser out of the inning. The Golden Eagles advanced a runner to second in the seventh with two outs, but Carson caught a long fly in right field to end the inning. David Castillo had a lead-off double in the eighth and was singled in by Leu to end a streak of 16 scoreless innings. Doug Bernier hit an RBI triple in the ninth and scored on Erick Donaldson's single.

ORU had just appeared in the top top by Collegiate Baseball this week before losing 10-0 at Arkansas on Monday and BYU on Tuesday.

BYU next plays at the Air Force Academy on Friday at 2 p.m. in a game which can be heard live locally on KSRR Radio (1400 AM).
