The BYU baseball team added two games to its winning streak this week against Seattle University, defeating the Redhawks on Tuesday 5-2, and on Wednesday 10-0.
The Cougars made a strong comeback on Tuesday, shutting down the Redhawks’ 2-0 lead in the top of the third inning.
“We didn’t quit, which seems to be our team mantra,” coach Mike Littlewood said. “We kept plugging and plugging away. One of our biggest hits came from Adam (Law) with two strikes.”
Law hit a two-run single that placed the Cougars at a 5-2 lead over the Redhawks in their decisive victory.
BYU soundly defeated Seattle during Thursday’s rematch, earning a 10-0 shutout. Second baseman Brennon Anderson hit a home run, scoring two runs for the Cougars in the seventh inning.
“Brennon had a huge hit, but it was more of a team effort,” Littlewood said. “It was nice to win a game by a large margin. It gave us a chance to relax just a tad. We haven’t had many of those type of games.”
The Cougars will play a doubleheader against Creighton University on Friday at 11 a.m. and 1:45 p.m. in St. George. The game was originally scheduled to be played at BYU’s Miller Park, but the field was ruled unusable due to winter conditions. The Cougars will play the Blue Jays again on Saturday at 10:30 a.m.
Friday and Saturday’s games will be held at Bruce Hurst Field on the Dixie State University campus.
