Perry Ties School Record

OREM -- Tyler Perry tied a school record with two triples and hit a pair of doubles Thursday against Air Force in BYU's 20-7 victory.

In his first at bat, Perry fouled off two pitches on a one-two count for an RBI triple with no outs to tie the score at one-all in the six-run third inning. He scored when Ty Haguewood worked a full count to double down the right field line for two RBI.

The Falcons had taken a 1-0 lead in the second when Gerremy Goldsberry scored after a pair of singles. Goldsberry also hit a solo home run to lead off the sixth.

After Perry and company finished the second inning, Nate Fernley had a 6 1 lead and surrendered five more hits to earn his eighth victory of the season against one loss.

Fernley struck out three Falcons in his six innings after escaping the second inning with a double play. He left the game with a 16-3 lead.

Perry's record-tying second triple led off the seven-run fifth. Perry moved defensively from second to third in the fifth as shortstop Brad Hales entered the game. Hales joined Perry in recording two doubles on the day. Starting shortstop Seth King hit a three-run double in the fourth.

"It was nice to swing the bats again the way we think we can," said BYU Coach Vance Law. "Our pitching was good and it was an all-around good game."

Not playing in the game was senior BYU co-captain Shane Belliston, whose wife Megan gave birth to daughter Ashlyn a half-hour before the game.

BYU's record improves to 14-11 overall and 5-2 in the Mountain West Conference, while AFA falls to 14-15 and 1-6.

The two teams meet for the second of three games on Friday at 2 p.m., followed by a noon game on Saturday all at UVSC's field.
