BYU baseball beat No. 2 Loyola Marymount University in two games out of three in a series this week in California.
The series started with a 5-3 Cougar win on Friday when Junior Eric Urry hit a two-run homer in the 12th inning.
“I knew I hit it well and was hoping it would go out,” Urry said. “We came up clutch and got the big hits we needed.”
The Cougars took on the Lions again Friday night and were able to pull off another win 4-2. BYU led for the entire game, and Brandon Kinser threw strongly for eight innings.
“Brandon was awesome tonight,” BYU coach Mike Littlewood said. “He commanded all four pitches and was a bulldog out there.”
LMU was able to avoid a sweep by beating BYU on Saturday. BYU was able to tie the game 2-2 in the third inning on a two-run single from Tanner Chauncey. The bases were loaded in the seventh, giving the Cougars a chance to stay in the game; but they fell short, and Loyola Marymount took the win, 8-2.
