BYU baseball finished first tourney of the season


BYU baseball started their season this weekend with new coach Mike Littlewood and secured two wins and two losses at the Brooks Wallace Classic tournament in Lubbock, Texas.

On Friday, the Cougars won their first game 9-0 against Northern Colorado University, then followed it up with a 6-4 loss in a doubleheader.

“We did a great job executing our offense in the first game, but came out flat for the second game,” Littlewood said. “I’m happy we got a win, but disappointed we got a split.”

Saturday’s games against Northern Illinois University and Texas Tech left BYU with one victory and one loss as well.

The Cougars optimized their defensive and offensive opportunities to beat the Huskies 5-3 Saturday morning.

“It was a good win for us, but we had to piece it together,” Littlewood said. “Every single guy had a part to play in the win.”

BYU pitcher Adam Miller threw six strikeouts, but also recorded six walks. The Cougars missed many offensive opportunities as well.

“We played good defense tonight, but we let the game slip away with little things here and there,” Littlewood said. “We need to play nine complete innings and not give up 10 free passes.”

The Cougars will travel to Baton Rouge on Thursday to play Louisiana State University.
