Aztecs Win Game One, Second Suspended

SAN DIEGO -- Sean Pierce hit two of San Diego State's three homers off BYU's Nate Fernley to give the Aztecs a 7-5 victory in the first game of Friday's doubleheader.

BYU was leading in the nightcap, 5-4, when it was suspended after seven innings of play. Game two will be completed on Saturday, March 10th, at 1:00 p.m., PST.

The loss was Fernley's first of the season, giving him a 6-1 record. Pierce's first homer came on his first pitch of the second inning. His second dinger came in the sixth. Aztec Pilar Amaya had a solo homer in the fifth.

BYU's Shane Belliston hit a solo homer on a 2-0 pitch in the first inning. The Cougars manufactured four runs in the seventh inning to tie the game at five-all. Cougar Coach Vance Law was ejected in the fourth inning after umpires reversed their call for an Aztec runner who had been thrown out on a pickoff.

Matt Carson hit a two-run homer in the first inning of the nightcap, followed immediately by Ty Haguewood's double.

BYU's final game with SDSU is Saturday afternoon at 3 p.m. MST. The game will be broadcast live locally in Utah over KSRR (1400 AM) or on the Internet at www.goaztecs.com.
