>>HIVE FROM FEMALE MILLER FIELD.>>Spencer: WHEREVER AND HOWEVER YOU ARE CONNECTED GREAT TO HAVE YOU WITH US ON BYU, THE, HAVE. WE JUST SHOWS YOU WHAT BYU DID AGAINST UTAH STATE, THEY REBOUNDED, WHAT YOU DIDN’T SEE, IS THAT YESTERDAY THE COUGARS TRAVELED TO CEDAR CITY AND UNLOADED ON THE THUNDER BIRDS PROBABLY WITH ONE OF THEIR BEST OFFENSIVE PERFORMANCES OF THE SEASON. THEY ARE HOPING THOSE BATS SHOW UP. THEY HAVE BEEN SO HOT. 31 GAMES — 31 RUNS IN THE LAST TWO GAMES. AND THEY ARE GOING TO BE SECOND PLACE IN THE WHACK TOURNAMENT WITH A BI. SO THEY ARE PLAYING GOOD ALSO.>>Spencer: COMPETING WITH A CONFERENCE CHAMPION NO DOUBT. WE WILL BE LED OFF BY LINDSEY STEVENSON. THE SOPHOMORE OUT OF MESA.>>Gary: WELL, SHE WENT FIVE FOR EIGHT IN THE THREE GAME. ALSO SCORED TWO RUNS AND KNOCKED IN THREE. SHE HAS A 323 AMPLE, LEADS THE TEAM, AND THE SIGHED FOR THE TEAM LEAD WITH SIX HOME RUNS.>>Spencer: FOR BYU WE TURN OUR ATTENTION TO CAITLYN AL DRIBBLE, WHO HASN’T DONE AS MUCH AS SHE HOPED FOR. BUT HER WATT HAS SHOWNED UP IN A BIG WAY IN THE LAST FEW GAMES.>>Gary: SHE HAS HAD INCREDIBLE BACK TO BACK GAMES. IN THE LAST THREE SHE GRAND SLAMMED HOME RUN AND KNOCKED IN 5. YESTERDAY AGAINST SOUTHERN UTAH SHE HIT ANOTHER FRANKED SLAM, AND AN ADDITIONAL HOME RUN, AND WATTED IN SIX. OUR KEYS TO THE GAME BROUGHT TO YOU BY TIM DALEY. SERVING UTAHCEPS 1968, WHAT DO THE WOLVERINES DO OR NEED TO DO TODAY TO GET THE UPSET WIN IN.>>.>>Gary: WELL, THEY NEED TO BATTLE BACK. THEY FELL BEHIND IN BOTH GAMES OF THE DOUBLE HEADER AND CAME BACK TO WIN EACH. AND POP FOUR PRODUCTION, IN THE BOOKEND VICTORY AGAINST MAKER FIELD THE TOP FOUR COMBINED WITH 11 FOR 24. BUT IN THE 2-1 VICTORY, THEY WERE JUST ONE FOR 11. WELL, CIRCLE SUCCESS, THE PITCHES STAFF GAVE UP ONE RUN AND EIGHT HITS DURING THE THREE GAME SERIES AND ALL HOME RUNS.>>Spencer: YOU SAID IT, GARY, 31 RUNS OVER THE LAST TWO GAMES FOR BYU. AND AN 18-4 WIN. AND WHERE MONDAY SHOWCASED. THAT TAKES US TO OUR STARTING LINE-UPS TODAY LED OFF BY THE VISITORS. FROM NEARBY OREM, UTAH, WE WILL GO WITH THE FIELDERS FOR BYU FIRST. THE CATCHER BEHIND HOME PLATE IS THE ALWAYS SENSATIONAL LIBBY SUGG. ONE OF THE BEST PLAYERS IF NOT THE BEST IN THE WEST COAST CONFERENCE. BRELAND AT SECOND BASE, ALEXIS AT SHORT. CAITLYN AT HER USUAL SPOT IN THIRD. STARTING PITCHER FOR BYU WEARING NUMBER 33 IN THOSE ROYAL BLUE TOPS KERISA VIRAMONTES. SHE IS 52 AND 6 AND DOING A NICE JOB STEPPING INTO SOME RATHER HARD SHOES LEFT BEHIND BY ALL TIME GREAT PITCHER MCKENNA BOWL. NOW FOR THE UTAH VALLEY WOLVERINES. COACHED BY T.J. HUBBARD IN HIS SECOND SEASON, WE ALREADY MENTIONED THE SUCCESS OF DEARN JOY THIS YOU AS RIGHT NOW NUMBER TWO SEED IN THE WESTERN ATHLETIC CONFERENCE. LEADING OFF WILL BE BRIANNE IN BOWLER IN LEFT FIELD. SKYLER COOK THE CENTER FIELDER. THE AFOREMENTIONED LINDSEY STEVENSON. BATS CLEAN UP SHE STARTS IN SECOND. THE STARTING CATCHER. MADISON WILL BE TODAY’S DESIGNATED PLAYER. KAYLIE TAUGHT AT THIRD BASE. CARAGH MORRIS IN RIGHT FIELD, AND CARLIE BATTING 9TH AND PLAYING SHORT STOP. THE HEAD COACH FOR THE BYU COUGARS. IN HIS 16TH SEASON IS GORDON AGAIN. HE HAS TAKEN BYU TO 13 CONSECUTIVE NCAA TOURNAMENTS. AND HAS WON NINE STRAIGHT CONFERENCE CHAMPIONS. 634 WINS TOTAL. 291 LOSSES. THERE AND WE MENTIONED T.J. HUBBARD, THE HEAD COACH OF UVU. HAS HIS TEAM OFF TO TEN AND FOUR IN WAAC PLAY. AND THIS TEAM, WOULD LOVE NOTHING MORE THAN TO PICK UP WIN NUMBER 20 ON THE SEASON, AS THEIR CROSS COUNTY RIVAL BYU. FIRST PITCH IS MOMENTS AWAY FROM GAIL MILLER FIELD. BASEBALL GAME TONIGHT, SO ALL EYES ON THE SOFTBALL SIDE OF THINGS HERE. AND AS YOU MENTIONED NEAR THE TOP OF THE BROADCAST, IT IS THE FINALS NON-CONFERENCE INTERCEPT FOR BYU. THEY WILL HEAD OUT OF TOWN BACK IN WEST COAST CONFERENCE PLAY FOR A TRIFECTA OF GAMES AT SAN DIEGO BEFORE RETURNING HOME. SO IT LOOKS LIKE WILL DETERMINE THE CONFERENCE CHAMPION. AND A THREE GAME SERIES WITH THE LIEN YOS OF LOYOLA MARYMOUNT. BRIANNA MULLER INTO THE BATTER’S BOX. FACING KERISA VIRAMONTES. SO UTAH VALLEY NEEDS EXACTLY ONE ATTEMPT FROM THE CIRCLE TO PLACE THEIR OPENING BATTER ON PACE.>>Gary: WELL, YOU CAN SEE SHE IS TRYING TO COME INSIDE, BUT A LOT OF PAIN JUST TOOK IT OFFHAND WRIST AREA, JUST KEEPS SHAKING IT AND TRYING TO GET IT BACK A IT ARELE BIT FEELING NORMAL. BY THAT’S A TOUGH PITCH. USUALLY THAT’S NOT A GOOD SIGN FOR THE PITCHER.>>Spencer: SKYLER COOK NOW WITH A RUNNER ON BASE. MOLERAT FIRST AFTER PICKING THAT FIRST PITCH. STILL SHAKING THAT RIGHT HAND. COOK DOWN 0-1 IN THE COUNT TO KERISA. AND THE BUNT ITEM IS FOULED INTO THE DID. BEHIND HOME PLATE.>>INTERESTING STATISTIC. I WAS TALKING A LITTLE BIT WITH JAMES WARNIC THE ASSISTANT FROM UNIVERSITY OF UTAH — UTAH VALLEY, AND HE TOLD ME THAT THE RECORD WAS SET BY ANDERSON WHO IS NOT PLAYING TONIGHT FOR ALL TIME BEING HIT BY A PITCH, AND SHE HAS BEEN HIT 17 TIMES. SO THESE GIRLS ARE SETTING RECORDS. YOU WANT TO THINK WHO WANTS TO BEAT THAT RECORD.>>YEAH, NO THANK YOU. YOU CAN HAVE THAT RECORD. THERE ARE OTHERS THAT WE CAN ALL TRY FOR. GRANTED SHOWS TOUGHNESS OF THESE YOUNG LADIES THAT PLAY SOFTBALL AT THE N.C.A.A. LEVEL. SKYLER COOK HAS WORKED THE COUNT OF TWO AND TWO. MULLER ON FIRST. SHE DID THE 6TH HIT BATTER ON THE SEASON BY KERISA.>>Gary: AND THERE’S ANOTHER BATTER WHO IS RIGHT BEHIND, SHE HAS BEEN HIT 16 TIMES SO YEAH, A LOT OF HITS BY THESE UTAH VALLEY BATTERS.>>CORRECTION ON THAT IT HERS COUNT. IT IS NOW TWO BALLS AND TWO STRIKES AS COOK WATCHES THAT AND IT IS HIGH AND OUTSIDE. OUR SCORE BOX SPONSOR TONIGHT, THE PROVIDER OF COMMERCIAL CLEANING AND SUPPLIES. BYU’S DEFENSE WELL PREPARED SO THEY HAD RILEY JENSEN. THEY CAME INTO ROB COOK OF WHAT OTHERWISE WOULD HAVE BEEN A BASE HIT TO THE ADAN DONNED RUNNER. BRINGING PAYTON THE FIRST BASEMAN FOR THE WOLVERINES INTO THE BOX.>>Spencer: THE 11TH DOUBLE THAT IS TIEDS FOR THE TEAM HIGH. HAVING A OUTSTANDING CAMPAIGN, AND SHE IS GOING TO ADD TO THAT. ANOTHER BASE HIT THROUGH THE GAP AT FIRST AND SECOND. AND THAT WILL PLACE RUNNERS ON FIRST AND SECOND, WITH ONE DOWN DURING THE TOP OF THE FIRST. AN ANG,LO WITH THE FIRST.>>Gary: AND ANGULO JUST REALLY TURNED ON IT AND GOT IT BETWEEN FIRST AND SECOND.>>Spencer: 39 NOW FOR THE FRESHMAN PAYTON ANGULO. .322 HITTERS. SIX HOME RUNS. AND HAS TWO TOME MATES ON BASE. ONE BALL AND ONE STRIKE TO STEVESON. UVU THREATENING TO SCORE IN THE PER.>>Gary: LIKE ETALKED IN THE STAND UP, A GREAT SERIES FOR STEVENSON AGAINST BAKERSFIELD. 5 FOR 8 IN THE PREGAME SWEEP.>>Spencer: INCLUDING A COUPLE OF HOME RUNS.>>Gary: KERISA VIRAMONTES WILL BE HELD UP IN THE PITCHER’S CIRCLE TONIGHT. SIGNALS THERE’S TWO AND ONE, THAT WAS NOT CORRECT, SO THEY WILL TAKE CARE OF THAT. AND HERE COMES KERISA VIRAMONTES WITH 2-1. THAT MISSES, BALL THREE. HITTER’S COUNT FOR THE CLEAN UP MATTER STEVENSON. I MENTIONED THIS IS THE NON-CONFERENCE TILT FOR BYU. SUCH IS THE KATE FOR UTAH VALUE HI AS WELL.>>3-1. STEVESON GET AS GOOD RIP OF THAT, OUT OF PLAY. MORE ON SECOND. SHE LED OFF BEING HITTER. SHE WAS MOVED OF TO SECOND BASE BY PAYTON THANK YOU ON A ONE OUT. AND HERE WE ARE A FULL COUNT, ONE DOWN. THERE AND ??? DRAWS THE WALK.>>Gary: YOU CAN SEE HER GOING OUT WITH THE REST OF THE OUTFIELDING. TRYING TO CALM KERISA VIRAMONTES DOWN A LITTLE BIT THERE. TO HIT A BATTER AND WALK A BATTER, THAT’S NOT WHAT YOU TYPICALLY SEE OUT OF VIRAMONTES. BOTH OF THESE TEAMS WILL DO WHAT THEY CAN TO GET THIS VICTORY, WITH BRAGGING RIGHTS. NO HIT BYU AND WALK AWAY WITH A THINK TEEN-0 VICTORY. SO WHEN YOU PICTURE THAT GAME WAS THE ALL TIME GREAT MCKENNA BOWL.>>Gary: YEAH, AND JUST LAST WEEK, WE SAW UTAH STATE COME IN HERE, AND HIT A GRAND SLAM. SO IN STATE RIVALRIES IN THE PAST, ADD TO BYU SOME DIFFICULTY.>>Gary: STACIA THE BATTER. CHECK SWING THERE, TAKE THE COUNT TO ONE AND ONE. WITH ONE DOWN AND A BASES LOADED SITUATION FOR KERISA VIRAMONTES. SHE JUST SURRENDERED HER 57 WALK OF THE SEASON. TO PUT STEVERSON ON FIST. BALL POPPED UP OVER THE SCREEN. THE COUNT NOW TO ONE AND TWO. STACIA ANOTHER HITTER OVER 100 BEEN THE 3-4-5 BATTERS ALL CAPABLE. SHE IS .326. ONE HOP IN THE DIRT, 2 AND 2.>>Spencer: A GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY FOR CARRY, THE SOPHOMORE OUT OF HENDERSON, NEVADA. INSIDE CORNER, STRIKE THREE. BIG TIME RESPONSE. KERISA VIRAMONTES FOR OUT NUMBER TWO.>>Gary: THIS IS THE PITCH ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE PLATE. LOOK HOW SHE CROWDS IT ZOO COMES INSIDE ON THE HAND. AND THAT WAS JUST A REALLY OUTSTANDING PITCH.>>Spencer: THAT TIME BY VIRAMONTES. TWO DOWN NOW, BASES STILL LOADED, THE DESIGNATED PLAYER. CHARGED WITH THE RESPONSIBILITY OF BRINGING IN WHAT SHE HOPES IS ONE IF NOT MULTIPLE ONES HERE, THE DESIRED START. ENTRY TAKE IT 1-1, NO, THAT’S LOW FOR BALL 2.>>Gary: WHAT THEY NOTICE IS THE DELAYED REACTION TO MOST PITCHES.>>Gary: YEAH, WHAT HE DOES IS HE CALLS IT ON THE FIELD SO YOU KNOW. THIS IS A STRIKE, AND THEN THE HAND WILL GO UP ABOUT HALF A SECOND OR A SECOND LATER. THEY ARE NOT SURE, SOMETIMES WHAT THE CALL IS.>>Spencer: TWO BALLS AND A STRIKE, TWO DOWN, BASES LOADED. MADISON FACING KERISA VIRAMONTES. ONE HOPS IT BACK INTO THE DOUGOUT, NO PROBLEM FOR THE PITCHING COACH TO NONCHALANTLY PUT UP THE RIGHT PAW, GRABS THAT AND THROWS IT INTO PLAY. 2-2. THE 2-2 TO CISCO. AND THAT MISSES INSIDE, FULL COUNT.>>Gary: THEY ARE A BIG PITCH EARLY IN THE GAME. FULL COUNT. BASES LOAD WITH NOWHERE TO PUT HER.>>Spencer: PAY OFF PITCH. FOULED BACK INTO THE SCREEN AND WE WILL DO IT AGAIN. CISCO HAS A GOOD SWING AT THAT BOY, SHE WAS JUST UNDERNEATH, OUT OF THE ZONE A LITTLE BIT. AND JUST IN THE ZONE AND YOU CAN SEE, THE FAN BEHIND HER. HE IS FOCUSED ON HIS HOT DOG. KEEP YOUR HEAD ON A SWIVEL THERE.>>Gary: FULL COUNT. CISCO ONCE AGAIN, TO VIRAMONTES AND THE FIRST RUN IS WALKED IN. MADISON CISCO GETS THE BETTER OF VIRAMONTES. IT IS 1-STEER.>>Gary: THAT WAS A CLOSE PITCH RIGHT HERE. THEY THOUGHT THEY HAD HER OUT. INSIDE CORNER.>>THAT BALL TAILING AWAY. IT STARTED ON A PROJECTRY THAT LOOKS LIKE THE STRIKE ZONE.>>YEAH, IT WAS A WYATTER PASS COMING IN ON THE HANDS THERE AND IT WAS CLOSE BEEN.>>Spencer: WELL, THE BASES REMAIN LOADED WITH TWO DOWN. AFTER VIRAMONTES GIVES UP THE 58 WALK OF THE SEASON, BRINGING IN THE FIRST OF THE GAME. MOLAR SCORES. REMEMBER, WAY BACK WHEN, SHE TOOK THE PITCH OF THE GAME OFF OF HER HAND. AND WAS AWARDED FIRST BASE. STEER-2 TO KAYLIE. IF VIRAMONTES CAN ESCAPE, THEN BYU SHOULD FEEL VERY FORTUNATE. CISCO. MOTT ON THE 0-2. IN AN INTERESTING TOP HALF OF THE FIST INNING. UVU WITH AN EARLY LEAD IN PROVO, STAY WITH US.>>UVU TAKES AN EARLY LEAD OVER BYU. BENEFITING ON BEING HIT BY THE PITCH, A COUPLE OF WALKS AND A TIMELY HIT. ANGULO AT FIRST. AND KAYLIE AT THIRD IN THE OUTFIELD. MULLINGER IN LEFT, COOK IN CENTER, AND CARAGH MORRIS IN RIGHT FIELD. LAUREN SPEND LOVE IS THE STARTING PITCHER FOR THE WOLVERINES. SIX. 73 EARNED RUN AVERAGE, AND SHE WILL TAKE ON WILEY JENSEN TO BEGIN. JENSEN LEADING OFF FOLLOWED BY BRELAND AND TARROW. THOSE TWO DO UP THIS INNING. IF IT COMES TO IT, LIBBY SUGG WILL BAT IN THE NUMBER FOUR SPOT. STRAIGHT SIX, MERRILL, ALLDREDGE AND VANDER RIGHT.>>Gary: BOY, SHE IS FEELING HOT. SHE WAS EIGHT FOR 12 AGAINST ST. MARY’S LAST NIGHT COMBINED. THAT’S 62-6 FOR AN AVERAGE, AND THAT BALL DOWN THE MIDDLE GOES UP THE MIDDLE WITH IT. SO NOW, THAT’S NINE FOR 13 AT THE LAST 13 AT BALLS JUST SEEING THE BALL WELL.>>Spencer: JENSEN HAS EXTENTED HER HIT STREAK TO EIGHT GAMES. THAT WILL BRING UP BRELAND. AND BRELAND INTO CENTER FIELD. THAT GETS TO THE FENCE. JENSEN AT SECOND SHE WILL BE HELD AT THE THIRD, AND A SINGLE IS FOLLOWED UP BY A DOUBLE. BYU WITH RUNNERS IN SCORING POSITION, A SECOND AND THIRD, AND NO OUT.>>Gary: WELL, YOU CAN SEE BRELAND FAKING THE BUNT. AND THAT WASN’T BAD. IT IS DOWN BUT A LITTLE TOO MUCH OF THE PLATE. AND IT WAS RIPPED OVER THE PAD OF THE CENTER FIELDER SKYLER COOK FOR A DOUBLE. AND BYU WELL YOU LOOK AT THE LAG TWO AND THEY HAVE MEETINGS LIKE THIS AGAINST ST. MARY’S, FOUR RUNS IN THE SECOND, EIGHT IN THE THIRD AND SIX IN THE FIRST, AND EIGHT IN THE SECOND. THOSE ARE HUGE NUMBERS OF RUNS IN ONE INNING.>>Spencer: LEXI TARROW INTO THE BOX. RBI OPPORTUNITY, FOR THE NUMB BEFORE THREE BATTER IN TONIGHT’S LEAN UP. JENSEN ON THIRD, SHE SINGLED TO BEGIN THE BOTTOM HALF. MOVED OH. ON A DOUBLE BY BRELAND. NOW DOWN IN THE COUNT, 0-2. LEXI WAS TWO FOR FOUR YESTERDAY. SCORED TWO RUNS AND BATTED IN ONE. 18 HITS BY BYU YESTERDAY.>>AND THE BUNT DOWN IN THE BOX. TARROW WILL BE RETIRED. IT GOES FOUL, AND THERE’S ONE DOWN. RUNNERS ON SECOND AND THIRD.>>Gary: WELL, YOU CAN SEE A LITTLE SPIN OEN THE BALL. A DIVE, BUT A DIVE IN FOUL TERRITORY. A LITTLE BIT OFF HER LEFT. THAT’S ABOUT THE THIRD STRIKE OF A FOUL THAT WILL GO AS A STRIKE OUT.>>Spencer: STRIKE OUT. LIBBY SUGGS BATTING AN EVEN .40. 62 HITS TO HEED THE GAME. NINE DOUBLES, THAT’S TIED FOR A TEAM LEAD AND TEN HS.>>Gary: LEADS ALL COUGARS THE SLUGGING PERCENTAGE, ASTRONOMICAL. IT IS 700, ON BASE IS .503. YEAH, THAT’S PRETTY GOOD.>>Spencer: AND AGAINST SOUTHERN UTAH, IT WAS THE PERFECT THREE FOR THREE, SO THAT RAISES THAT PERCENTAGE UP A LITTLE BIT. SCORED A COUPLE AND HAD A DOUBLE.>>Gary: LEADS WITH TEN HOME RUNS BUT SHE IS GETTING POLL HOED CLOSELY BY CAITLYN ALLDREDGE.>>Spencer: AND ALLDREDGE, HER LAST TWO HOME RUNS, BOTH GRAND SLAMS OR SHOULD I SAY TWO OF THE LAST THREE HAVE BEEN GRAND SLAMS. THE HOME RUNS OVER THE LAST TWO GAMES, 2-1, SOLD. THAT BALL WAS ABSOLUTELY CLUTCH.>>Gary: WELL, IN THAT SITUATION, YOU — WE ARE THINKING LAUREN — THAT BALL CAME RIGHT THERE LATE. AND THEY REFER TO IT AS A COOKIE, THAT WAS A COOKIE RIGHT DOWN THE MIDDLE OF THE PLATE. AND THE POWER, AS SHE HIT IT UP IN THE LIGHTS. PROBABLY WON’T EVEN SEE THIS THING LAND. IT WENT WAY UP IN THE LIGHTS. FOR A THREE RUN HOME RUN.>>A MOON SHOT TO GIVE BYU THE LEAD BACK. 3-1 IN THE BOTTOM OF THE FIRST. CLEARING BASES. THERE’S ONE DOWN.>>Gary: WHEN YOU LOOK AT A BALL RISING ONCE IT GETS TO THE FENCE, YOU KNOW THAT BALL IS OUT. AND THAT WAS AROUND THE LIGHTS AND WENT OVER INTO THE FIELD BEYOND GAIL MILLER FIELD WITH A LITTLE BIT OUT THERE. AND DISRUPTED THE PLAY OUT THERE.>>Spencer: MAYBE SUGG HAS 58 RUNS BATTED IN. ON HER 11TH OF THE SEASON, 58 BATTED IN. JUST TO PUT THAT IN PERSPECTIVE, THE NEXT CLOSEST IS CAITLYN ALDRIDGE, WHO HAS 32, IT’S ALMOST DOUBLE.>>Gary: YEAH, SHE HAS HAD A PHENOMENAL YEAR.>>Spencer: TAKES THE BALL ON THE BACK, AND SHE WILL BE GRANTED FIRST.>>Gary: SHE TRIES TO TURN HERE, EXACTLY WHAT YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO DO, AND NO CHANCE. THAT WAS ABOUT THE MIDDLE OF THE BACK AREA, AND THAT’S WHAT YOU SEE REFLECTING IN THE BACK THERE.>>Spencer: THE LONE FRESHMAN. THE REGULAR STARTING LINE-UP. AT LEAST AS FAR AS BATS GO FOR GORDON EAKIN, NOW AT FIRST. STILL ONLY ONE OUT, THE SENIOR SHORT STOP. TAKES STRIKE 1.>>Gary: THAT’S GOOD THAT TIME. A NICE CHANGE UP.>>THEY HAVE REACHED BASE SUCCESSFULLY IN NINE STRAIGHT. I DOUBT SHE ENVISIONED REACHING A BASE THE WAY SHE GOT THERE TONIGHT. BUT THAT’S THE REALITY. AND SHE IS WEARING THE BRUISE TO PROVE IT. 0-1 WITH 1 COUNT.>>Gary: HERBAL MISSES JUST OUTSIDE FOR BALL 1.>>Gary: YOU CAN SEE THE DISLIKE ON THE FACE OF STRID AFTER THAT LAST CALL. THOUGHT IT WAS LOW, AND SHE KIND OF WALKED AWAY WITH A WRY SMILE.>>Spencer: INDUSTRIAL, PATIENTLY WATCHING, GETS LOW IN THE STONE, 2-2.>>Gary: STRID WAS PERFECT YESTERDAY. 3 FOR 3, KNOCKED IN TWO AND SCORED A RUN.>>Spencer: YOU PUT UP 15 YOU WILL SEE A LOT OF THAT, STRID, THE COME BACKER. IT COULD BE A DOUBLE PLAY, BUT STRID WILL EASILY BEAT OUT — IT WASN’T EVEN AN ATTEMPT TO THROW. RETIRED AT SECOND FOR OUT NUMB BEER TWO, SO STRID REACHES ON THE FIELDER’S CHOICE.>>Gary: THAT WAS A NICE PLAY. THE BEST THROW WAS WAY UP THE LINE BY THE SECOND BASE. TRIED TO TURN IT INTO A DOUBLE PLAY, BUT JUST TO KEEP HER FOOT ON THE BASE WAS A GOOD JOB.>>Spencer: MADISON MERRILL TRYING TO EXTEND THE INNING FOR BYU. 3 RUNS ACROSS FOR BYU. THANKS TO A THREE RUN BLAST OVER THE LEFT CENTER FIELD FENCE BY LIBBY SUGGS. HER 11TH HOME RUN OF THE SEASON. 1-0. AND MERRILL TAKES THE STRIKE TO MAKE IT 1-1.>>Spencer: THE 1-1 TO MERRILL, IS LINED BUT CAUGHT AT SECOND BY STEVERSON, AND THAT WILL RETIRE THE DOING IN THE BOTTOM OF THE FIRST. 3-1 BYU. POWERED BY THE CLEAN UP BATTER. LIBBY SUGGS, STAY WITH US.>>Spencer: BYU SOFTBALL ON BYU-TV, IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY TIM DALEY AUTO GROUP. SERVING UTAH SINCE 1968. BRADY INDUSTRIES. HONESTLY BETTER. AND BY AAA. TO HEAR MORE AT AAA.COM.>>THANK YOU TO A THREE RUN HOME RUN BY LIBBY SUGG, WE WILL MOVE TO THE TOP OF THE SECOND. UTAH VALLEY TRYING TO ANSWER BACK, AND SCORING FIRST. ON A WALK BY KERISA VIRAMONTES. AND THE BASES LOADED SITUATION, CARAGH MORRIS, THE RIGHT FIELD TORE LEAD THINGS OFF BY THE VISITING WOLVERINES.>>Gary: KERISA VIRAMONTES IS A SOPHOMORE.>>JAMMED INSIDE. AND THAT MIGHT JUST BE THE EASIEST OUT OF THE NIGHT FOR THIS BYU DEFENSE. FALLING GENTLY INTO THE GLOVE OF VIRAMONTES. AND THERE’S ONE DOWN HERE IN THE TOP OF THE SECOND.>>Gary: WHEN YOU GET INTO MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL, THEY NEVER LET THE PITCHER CATCH IT. IF THE BALL IS RIGHT TO THEM, EVERYBODY WILL COME IN AND SOMEBODY ELSE WILL MAKE THE CATCH. BUT WHEN YOU GET TO SOFTBALL, THEY ARE SOME OF YOUR BEST ATHLETES WHEN IT COMES RIGHT TO THEM, THEY WILL MAKE THE CATCH.>>Spencer: BUNKEDDERSON. SHORT STOP, GOT ON A RUN.>>Gary: SHE IS NINE FOR 38 ON THE SEASON. SHE IS A SHORT STOP, AND ALL OF HER HITS — SHE HAS APPEARED NOW IN 35 GAMES WHICH WILL BE HER 18TH START. FOR HEAD COACH T.J. THE 0-2.>>Gary: THE ONE THING ABOUT CARLIE, SHE IS EXTREMELY FAST. 5 FOR 5, BUT IN HIGH SCHOOL, SHE RAN THE 100, THE 200-METER, AND THE 400. AND HER TEAM WON FOUR REGIONAL CHAMPIONS AND WENT ON TO A STATE CHAMPION. SO EXTREMELY FAST. TWO BALLS AND TWO STRIKES NOW TO VIRAMONTES. THE WOLVERINES HAVE WON FOUR OF THE LAST FIVE INCLUDING THE SWEEP OF BAKERSFIELD. OF COURSE HERE TONIGHT AT BYU TO FINISH UP WITH THREE AGAINST WAAC OPPONENT. ON THE ROAD, AND THEN THE WAAC TOURNAMENT TAKES PLACE IN NEW MEXICO. AND A GOOD THING FOR UVU, I WAS SPEAKING WITH JAMIE, THEY HAVE A BYE. THERE’S 15 IN THE WESTERN ATHLETIC CONFERENCE. FIRST AND SECOND, THEY HAVE A PI. BUY. AND UTAH VALLEY WILL HAVE A CHANCE TO MAY THE WINNER OF THE 3-5 GAME. AND UVU IS JUST HATCH A GAME ABOVE SEATTLE THERE.>>Spencer: BUNDERSON ON THE FULL COUNT STAYS ALIVE. INTO THE STANDS. ONE DOWN. THREE BALLS, TWO STRIKES, NOBODY ON FOR UTAH VALLEY. THEY TRAIL BYU 3-1 IN THE TOP OF THE SECOND. VIRAMONTES PITCHING FOR BYU. GROUNDED TO SHORT, AT FIRST, AND NOT A GREAT THROE. BUT A GOOD COLLECT AT FIRST BASE. BY MERRELL. AND SHE HOLDS ON FOR OUT NUMBER TWO.>>Gary: YEAH, THE VERY GOOD STRETCH THAT TIME. ALEXIS HAS A GUN FOR AN ARM. THROW HER OFF LINE, AND SHE MADE A NICE STRETCH AND HELD HER FOOT ON THE BASE TO GET THE SPEEDY CARLIE BUNDERSON.>>BACK TO THE TOP OF THE ORDER FOR UTAH VALLEY. BRIANNA MULLER. SHE SCORED THE LONE RUN FOR UTAH VALLEY. BEING FORCED IN VIA THE WALK, AND INTERESTING TOP HALF OF THE FIST. FOR KERISA. SHE DEALT WITH TWO DIFFERENT BASE RUNNING SITUATIONS AND GIVING UP THE ONE RUN. MULLER, BEHIND THAT PITCH.>>Spencer: SLICING FOUL, 0-2.>>Gary: BRIANNA WENT TO NORTH CANYON HIGH SCHOOL, PHOENIX ARIZONA. SHE WAS THE OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE YEAR. THE DEFENSIVE PLAYER IN 2014, AND HELPED HER TEAM MAKE THE STATE PLAYOFFS FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 11 YEARS.>>Spencer: THE 0-2. JUST GOT A PIECE, DID MULLER.>>Spencer: VIRAMONTES SEARCHING FOR STRIKE OUT NUMBER 3. IN DOING SO WOULD END THE TOP OF THE SECOND. 0-2, REACHES GOOD FEET FOR HITTING BY THE LEFT FIELDER, AS SHE PICKS HER SPOT IN SHALLOW RIGHT. DROPS IT IN THERE FOR A TWO OUT SINGLE. THE SECOND HIT OF THE GAME.>>Gary: THE CHANGE UP, YOU CAN SEE SHE KEPT HER HANDS BACK, AND POKED IT OVER THE INFIELD, YOU CAN SEE WHY MULLER IS HITTING 324. THE LEADING TEAM IN AVERAGES. THAT WAS A GOOD PIECE OF HITTING. HITTING.>>Gary: FIFTH OF THE SEASON FOR BEIAN THAT MOELLER. WHICH WILL ALLOW COOK HER SECOND OF THE GAME. COOK IS THE MOST DANGEROUS BASE RUNNER THAT UVU HAS. 22 FOR 22 IN STOLEN BASE ATTEMPTS.>>Gary: YEAH, AND THAT’S A RECORD FOR UTAH VALLEY UNIVERSITY. FOR SUCCESSFUL STEALS WITHOUT BEING THROWN OUT. 24 IS THE MOST. THE ONE THAT WENT 24 — 24 OF 25. SO PERFECT ON THE SEASON. IN COOK. GET AS PIECE OF THAT PITCH. POKED FOUL, ONE BALL, TWO STRIKES TWO DOWN. RUNNER ON FIRST, IS BRIANNA MOELLER. TRYING TO CUT INTO THE LEAD. MOELLER.>>Spencer: THE 1-2, AND JENSEN WILL MAKE THE SLIDING CATCH UNDERNEATH IN SHALLOW LEFT. YOU SEE JENSEN WITH A COUPLE WOULD BE BASE HITS. PLAYING SHALLOW LEFT.>>Spencer: REWIND TO APRIL 26TE COUGARS WERE 12-4 IN 6, BUT IT WAS A LITTLE STRANGE. UTAH TOOK A LEAD EARLY ON, BYU, IN COME BACK FASHION PUT TOGETHER 12 CONSECUTIVE RUNS. MCKENNA BOWL AS A RELIEF PITCHER ALSO UNCOMMON, ANSWERED THE CALL. AND WILL FOR SEVEN STRIKE OUT SUICIDE ALLOWED JUST ONE HIT IN HER RELIEF PITCHING TIME.>>Gary: YEAH, AFTER UTAH VALLEY — THEY BROUGHT THE DREAM CRUSHER IN. AND YOU CAN SEE THE DIFFERENCE, WHEN SHE THROWS NOS MANY PEOPLE CAN HIT IT. SHE IS FUN TO WATCH. I MISS WATCHING MCKENNA OUT HERE. WE FOUND OUT SHE FOUND A HOME IN ITALY, PLAYING PROVINGAL SOFTBALL OVER THERE.>>Spencer: NOW BATTING THE RED HOT SENIOR.>>Spencer: IT’S AN INCREDIBLE STATISTIC TO GO THREE FOR FOUR. VERY RARELY, WILL YOU SEE THAT KIND OF NUMBER.>>THREE AND ONE AS THAT WAS OUTSIDE AND LOW. STARTING PITCHER.>>Spencer: ALLDREDGE DRAW AS WALK IN HER FIRST AT BAT, AND THE LEAD OFF BATTER.>>Gary: THAT TIME SPEND LOVE — BUT YOU CAN SEE THE BALL SO WELL.>>THE LINE TO SPEND LOVE, SENIOR FROM TOOELE, UTAH. IN THE PITCHER CIRCLE FOR THE WOLVERINES. FACING BROOK VANDER HEIDE. THE ONE THING ABOUT VANNED DIED BUNTING, SHE HAS ALMOST A 75% CHANCE OF BEATING IT OUT, SHE IS SO FAST. SHE IS REALLY GETTING THE BALL ABOUT FOUR OR FIVE FEET FROM THE HOME PLATE. VANDER HEIDE AGAIN SQUARING AROUND. TYPICAL SLAP HITTER. SO SHE TOO LIKE CAITLYN FEELING A LITTLE BIT OF THE BUTS FROM NOT HAVING PRODUCED AS MUCH OFFENSIVELY AS THEY EXPECT THEMSELVES TO. ONE AND ONE, LOW FOR BALL TWO.>>Spencer: ALLDREDGE ON FIST. AND ALLDREDGE WILL BE THROWN OUT JUST IN THE NICK OF TIME, AS SHE WAS SLIDING INTO SECOND. ONE DOWN IN THE BOTTOM OF THE SECOND.>>Gary: YOU CAN SEE THE BALL POPS OUT OF THEIR MITT. AND THROWS IT OVER AND COMES IN SECOND. BUT THERE’S NO WAY THE BUNTLER BE ABLE TO THROW OUT VANDER HEIDE ON THAT GROUND BALL. JUST TOO QUICK.>>Spencer: RILEY TO VAN HIDE. STEALING SECOND, THAT BALL IS OFF LINE. AND BYU WITH A RUNNER IN SCORING POSITION. JUST TO THE LEFT, AND BUNDERSON WAS COVERING FOR SHORT. BACKED UP, VANDERHEIDE NOW AT SECOND. AND JENSEN WITH A CHANCE FOR BYU TO EXTEND THEIR 3-1 LEAD.>>Spencer: SING UNTIL THE MIDDLE AND HER FIRST AT-BAT. ON BASE WHEN THEY HIT THE THREE RUN HOME RUN TO BRING US TO WHERE WE ARE NOW, LEADING 3-1. PULLS THAT BALL TO SECOND BASE. VANDER HEIDE WILL ADVANCE TO THIRD. ON THE OUT. AS STEVERSON RETIRES. JENSEN AT FIRST. TWO DOWN, BYU WITH A RUNNER ON THIRD. AND BRIELLE DOUBLED INTO CENTER FIELD. HER FIST PLATE APPEARANCE BACK INTO THE BOX.>>Gary: WE LAND WAS TWO FOR THREE. ALSO INCLUDING A DOUBLE, AND SCORED TWO.>>Spencer: BRELAND. THE HIT TO BYU GAVE THEM A THREE RUN ADVANTAGE VANDERHEIDE, ON THIRD. SHE JOKED ON SOCIAL MEDIA THAT LAST GAME WE CALLED ON BYU-TV, SHE CHECKED HER WATCH AT FIST, AFTER SHE GOT A HIT AND SAID WHEN YOU ARE ZERO FOR 1,000 YOU HAVE TO CHECK YOUR WATCH, AND SAY IT IS ABOUT TIME.>>Gary: I LIKE THAT. YOU LOOK AT THIS PITCH, TRYING TO CON ON THE INSIDE PART, BUT DROPS SO A LITTLE OUT OF THE ZONE.>>NOW 3-0 TO BRELAND.>>Gary: PRELAND HAS SUCH POWER. SHE IS SITTING THREE ON THE TEAM IN HS. SHE HAS 11. AND LIBBY TODAY HAS 11. ALLDREDGE HAS 9. SO THOSE THREE HAVE TREMENDOUS POWER. DRAWS THE TWO OUT WALK TO PUT RUNNERS ON THE CORNER. TEN SO BYU WITH TARROW. WHAT SPEND LOVE WANTED. AFLAKSY TARROW.>>Gary: LEX SIX AGAINST SOUTHERN UTAH, SHE HAD A GREAT GAME, TWO FOR FOUR.>>Spencer: WHILE SHE DOESN’T NECESSARILY BRING THE POWER THAT BRELAND DOES, SHE IS A .353 HITTER. SHE DOES HAVE FOUR HOME RUNS AND NINE DOUBLES. SECOND BEST BATTING AVERAGE ON THE TEAM, SO PICK YOUR POISON IF YOU WILL. AND TARROW TAKES THE STRIKE. 1-1.>>Gary: WELL, WHEN YOU HAVE A BATTER BEHIND YOU WITH THE BUILT OF SUGGS YOU WILL SEE A LOT OF GOOD PITCHES. THEY CAN’T AFFORD TO WALK THEM. SHE HAS BEEN SUCCESSFUL, .353 AVERAGE, EXTREMELY GOOD. NINE DOUBLES. HIGHEST ON THE TEAM. SHE ALSO HAS THE SECOND MOST RUNS BATTED IN. SHE HAS 30, TO LIBBY’S 58.>>Spencer: SO THE 1-2 TO TARROW. AND SHE STAYS ALIVE. INTERESTING AT BAT AROUND HERE. BYU WITH A 3-1 LEAD. BUT AGAIN ST. MARY’S, THEY DID A LOT OF THEIR DAMAGE WITH TWO OUTS AND REALLY TOOK A STRANGLE HOLD IN ALL THREE OF THOSE GAMES. BY MAKING THE PITCHERS WORK LATE. TARROW. CHECK THROW DOWN TO THIRD, AS THAT BALL MISSES OUTSIDE. AND THEN BRELAND WILL TAKE SECOND. SO BOTH IN A SCORING POSITION, NOT A SURPRISE. A COMMON MOVE IN NCAA SOFTBALL. TO TAUNT THE DEFENSIVE TEAM INTO GOING DOWN, AND THAT’S THE SHORT STOP. BROWNEDDER ANDSON. AND LEXI WILL BE CREDITED WITH A RUN BATTED IN. IT IS 4-1 BYU.>>THAT BALL MAY HAVE BEEN OUT NUMBER 3. WATCH THIS RIGHT UNDER THE MITT AND BETWEEN THE LEGS OF CARLIE BUNDERSON. ALLOWED A RUN TO SCORE.>>Gary: REGISTERS RIGHT NOW AS THE 4’8″ FOR BYU LIBBY SUGGS.>>Gary: THAT CAN’T BE A HIT. YOU CANNOT HIT A BALL BETWEEN A PLAYERS LEG. THERE AND HAVE IT NOT GO AS AN ERROR IN.>>Gary: YEAH. FOR THAT SCORE.>>THAT’S SOME HOME COOKING THERE.>>Spencer: SUGGS TAKES IT TO A SWINGING BAT PITCH, BACK IN, ONE AND ONE. SHE WILL GET A DELICIOUS RISING FAST BALL IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ZONE, THAT SHE QUICKLY DISPOSED OF OVER THE LEFT FENCE. AND THE RUNNER WILL GO. AND BYU JUST LIKE WE WERE TALKING ABOUT. THIS IS A CALCULATED MOVE, NC AXA SOFTBALL THAT THE COUGARS HAVE BEEN SCORING FROM THIRD, BUT THE RUNNER STEALS SECOND, AND UTAH VALLEY, I THINK THE APPROACH THERE WAS TO HAVE THE THROW CUT OFF SHORT AND THROW HOME IN TRIAL TO TRY TO GET BRELAND, IT DIDN’T. IT BACKFIRED.>>Gary: WELL, YOU ARE RIGHT. WHAT YOU DO OUT THERE, BUNDERSON AND STEVERSON, BOTH CONVERGE AT SECOND. ONE HAS TO COME IN HOT, AND ONE HAS TO MAKE THE TAG, AND TALK ABOUT IT BEFOREHAND. WELL, THAT TIME THEY BOTH WENT TO MAKE THE TASKER AND KIND OF BUMPED INTO EACH OTHER. AND THE BALL WENT BETWEEN THEM, AND ANOTHER UNEARNED RUN COMES ACROSS.>>Spencer: THERE SO THEY WILL FIGURE THAT OUT IN THE SCOREBOARD. BYU NOW LEADING AND THE CORE BOARD IS SHOWING 4-WITHIN. AND SUGGS DELIVERS EXTRA BASES DOWN THE RIGHT FIELD LINE. TARROW WILL SCORE, AND SUGGS WILL STAND UP DOUBLE, 6-1 BYU. AND BYU CONTINUES TO DO DAMAGE WITH TWO OUTS OEN THE BOARD.>>Gary: WELL, THE F THAT WAS A GOOD HIT THAT TIME, HOW YOU CAN SEE LIBBY COVERS ALL THE TERRITORY, SHE HAS THE ABILITY TO PUSH IT OUT TO THE RIGHT FIELD WHICH IS GOOD THERE. ABOUT 23 FEET INSIDE THE FOUL LINE ON RIGHT SO SHE JEWSES ALWAYS THE FIELD, HAD TREMENDOUS POWER.>>Spencer: FOURTH OF THE GAME FOR LIBBY SUGG. 59 ON THE SEASON. THE SCOREBOARD HAS NOT UPDATED. DUE TO THE CHAOS NOW ENSUING. BYU HAS EQUALED THE THREE RUNS IN THE BOTTOM OF THE FIRST, A THREE HERE IN THE SECOND. IT IS 6-1. TWO THAT HOOKS RIGHT DOWN THE RIGHT FIELD LINE. FOR A VERY LONG AND EMPHATIC STRIKE ONE.>>Gary: THEY HAVE THREE HOME RUNED ON THE YEAR, YOU CAN SEE>>Gary: BOY, THAT TIME WE SEE CLEANER WHO JUST A FRESHMAN FROM AMARILLO, CALIFORNIA. FIRST JUST FOULED OUT OF THE BALLPARK. AND THE RIGHT FIELD AND THEN RIGHT BACK AND PUTS IT INTO LEFT CENTER GAP. AND THESE COUGARS, I TELL YOU WHAT WHEN YOU GET 18 HITS AND FIVE AT-BATS, 18 RUNS, FIVE OF THEM THIS GAME, AND YOU ARE SCORING SEVEN IN FIRST TWO INNINGS AGAINST ST. MARY’S AND SCORED 12 THE FIRST, IT IS LIKE MURDERER’S ROW, WHO CO YOU WANT TO FAY. ALMOST WANT TO WALK EVERYBODY. BUT THIS IS AN IMPORTANT LINE-UP FOR COACH EAKIN, COMING TOGETHER THIS IS AN IMPORTANT LINE-UP.>>Spencer: 6TH HIT OF THE GAME FOR BYU. AND WE ARE THROUGH AN INNING AND TWO-THIRDS. SO A DEFENSIVE STAND POINT FOR SPENDLOVE. NOW FACING ALEXA STRID.>>Gary: YEAH, THE PROBLEM FROM A PITCHING STANDPOINT, THERE’S NO WEAKS, THERE’S NOBODY IN THE LINE-UP THAT TRY TO WALK THIS PERSON, OR GET AROUND TO THE NEXT, THERE’S NO WEAKNESSES, SO IT JUST GETS VERY TOUGH ON A PITCHER.>>Spencer: STRID. COMES BACK. NO TROUBLE WITH THAT ONE. AND OVER TO ANGULO AT FIRST. THAT WILL FINALLY RETIRE THE SIDE. BYU WITH A 7-1 LEAD AFTER TWO COMPLETE INNIN>>BYU SOFTBALL ON BYU-TV IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY:DESERET FIST CREDIT UNION. SHARING YOUR VALUES. AND BY DEXTER LAW.COM. FOR HELP WHEN YOU NEED IT MOST.>>Spencer: INTO THE TOP OF THE THIRD FROM GAIL MILLER FIELD. IN PROVO, UTAH. BYU IN CONTROL OF 7-1. THE COUGARS SCORED FOUR IN THE BOTTOM OF THE SECOND, ALL WITH TWO OUTS AND THE BATS THAT PUT UP 18 RUNS IN ONLY FIVE INNINGS, LAST NIGHT, IN CEDAR CITY APPARENTLY HAVE MADE THEIR WAY BACK TO PROVO, UTAH, FOR THIS NON-CONFERENCE IN STATE SLASH WITH UTAH VALLEY JUAN BALL AND ONE STRIKE TO ANGULO TO LEAD THINGS OFF FOR THE WOLVERINES. SHE DID SING UNTIL THE FIRST AT-BAT. SHE IS THE FRESHMAN FROM CALIFORNIA. SHE WAS HER HIGH SCHOOL’S TEAM OFFENSIVE MVP. AND THE TEAM TO WIN A BASE LINE FINAL IN 2017.>>Spencer: THERE 3-1. THE LEAD OFF BATTER AT UTAH VALLEY, IN THE TOP OF THE THIRD, AND WE WILL GO TO A FULL COUNT AS THAT IS FOULED OFF THE LEFT SIDE OF THE SCREEN. ANGULO CAME INTO THIS GAME WITH A OUTSTANDING AVERAGE. SHE HAS 38 HITS. 11 DOUBLE AS TRIPLE AND A HOME RUN. SO VERY VERY GOOD HITTER. FULL COUNT PITCH, AND ANGULO WINS THAT SHOW DOWN, EARNING A WALK. THE COMMON THEME FOR BOTH TEAMS TONIGHT, HAS BEEN PLACING THE LEAD OFF BATTER ON BASE. HIT BY PITCH, A WALK, OR A BASE HIT, BOTH TEAMS FINDING SUCCESS EARLY IN THE INNING. BYU HAS OBVIOUSLY CAPITALIZED WHERE A 7-1 LEAD. LINDSEY STEVERSON. THAT BALL DEFLECTS OFF THE LEG OF VIRAMONTES. AND A NICE PLAY. BY BRIELLE BRELAND. TO COUNTER ACT THAT AND GET BACK TO THE BALL IN HAND, AND UNDERLINE OVER TO MERRELL AT FIRST BASE, WITH ONE DOWN. UTAH VALLEY NOW HAS A RUNNERUP SECOND.>>Gary: IT GOES RIGHT OFF THE SIDE OF VIRAMONTES. AND LUCKILY, FOR BYU, GOES RIGHT OVER TO PRELAND, WAITING FOR A GOOD THROW, AND GETS THE ONE OUT IN THE INNING. BUT THAT WAS DESTINED TO BE A BASE HIT. AND THEY ARE CHECKING RIGHT NOW, TO SEE HUB HER LEG IS DOING ON THAT BEING HIT BY THAT BATTED BALL.>>Spencer: SHE SAYS I AM FINE. ONE DOWN. RUNNER ON SECOND FOR OUR GAME ESSENTIALS BROUGHT TO YOU BY EMERGENCY ESSENTIALS. FOR OVER 30 YEARS HELPING PEOPLE PREPARE, AT BE PREPARED.COM. FOR UTAH VALLEY, YOU LAYED OUT THE FACT THEY WILL NEED TO BATTLE BACK. THAT RIPPINGS TRUE PERHAPS NOW MORE SO THAN EVER.>>Gary: ABSOLUTELY. THEY FELL BEHIND IN BOTH OF THE GAMES AGAINST BAKERSFIELD, AND CAME BACK TO PLAY IN EACH. SO TOP FOUR PRODUCTION, THEY ARE ALL IN THAT AREA. THEY HAVE A COUPLE THERE FROM BYU’S STANDPOINT, SUCCESS IN THE CIRCLE, YOU CAN JUST — VIRAMONTES IS A TOUGH ONE WHEN SHE NEEDS TO BE. BASES LOADED SITUATIONS AND ALL RUN HOME, EVERYBODY IS RUNNING HOME, BUT YOU ARE RUNNING SEVEN RUNS IN TWO INNINGS THERE’S A LOT OF PLAYERS CROSSING HOME PLATE.>>Spencer: OUT OF PLAY, RIGHT SIDE, OUT OF THE ENTIRE BALLPARK. TO MAKE IT 0-2. ANGULO ON SECOND. LED OFF WITH A WALK AND ONE DOWN. THAT RISE BALL IS HIGH, TWO BALLS AND TWO STRIKES.>>Gary: HAD A OUTSTANDING FRESHMAN CAMPAIGN FOR UVU.>>YEARRY GOES DOWN. AT THE HEAT AT THE INSIDE CORNER. THIRD OF THE GAME FOR VIRAMONTES. THE STARTER FOR BYU, SHE HAS NOW GONE TWO AND TWO-THIRDS. HAS GIVEN UP THE ONE EARNED RUN AND HOPING TO BE ON HER WAY TO WIN NUMBER 17 NOW TO THE STARTING PITCHER. OR RATHER PITCHER ON RECORD. 16 AND FIVE. MADISON WITH TWO OUTS. TRYING TO BRING AROUND ANGULO.>>Spencer: THAT SOULED DO IT, HIT WELL, OUT OF HERE! SISCO DELIVERS THE TWO OUT, TWO RUN HOMENER THE TOP OF THE THIRD TO BRING SOME LIFE INTO THAT UVU DUGOUT.>>Gary: THAT’S THE 7TH HOME RUN OF THE SEASON FOR SISCO. SO SHE REALLY HIT THAT BALL WELL. RIGHT TO RIGHT CENTER AREA. 220 TO THE WALL. THAT BALL IS RIGHT UP BELT HIGH RIGHT DOWN THE MIDDLE. THAT PITCH GOT AWAY A LITTLE BIT THERE FROM VIRAMONTES. AND JUST GAVE IT A RIDE, ABOUT 250 FEET AWAY. AND BRINGS THE SCORE TO 7-3.>>Spencer: 38 FOR QUERY. FOR SISCO, RATHER. TO MAKE IT SEVEN OF H THREE. BASH SHA. AND THAT DUGOUT CHANTING FOR UTAH VALLEY JUST A LITTLE BIT MORE ENERGETIC AND LOUD, UNDERSTANDABLY AFTER THE HOME RUN TO RIGHT CENTER.>>WELL, UTAH VALLEY HAS BEEN ON A GOOD STREAK.>>Gary: SO REALLY PLAYING OUTSTANDING SOFTBALL RIGHT NOW. THEY ARE RUNNING INTO A BUZZ SAW WITH THE BYU OFFENSE. WE JUST SCORED 14 IN ONE, AND 18 IN THE OTHER. THERE’S JUST A WHOLE LOT OF OFFENSE GOING ON FROM BYU’S STANDPOINT. SO THE TEAMS HAVE TO HOLD THEM DOWN IF THEY WANT TO BE COMPETITIVE THIS GAME.>>Spencer: SISCO GETS THE BETTER WITH THE TWO OUT, TWO RUB HOMER, BUT KERISA BATTLED BACK>>BYU SOFTBALL ON BYU-TV IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY:>>PRESENTED BY DESERET FIRST, YOUR VALUES YOUR TIME LINE, YOUR FINANCIAL FUTURE, PLENTY OF OFFENSE THROUGH 2 1/2 INNINGS BETWEEN BYU AND UTAH VALLEY. THE COUGARS SCORE 4-1 IN THE BOTTOM OF THE SECOND. ALL WITH TWO OUTS. LIBBY SUGGS POWERING A DOUBLE DOWN THE LINE. TO MAY HER 4TH RBI OF THE GAME TO GO ALONG WITH A THREE RUN HOMER. AND THEN THE AMBUSH WOULD CONTINUE. TWO OUTS. UTAH VALLEY ANSWERED BACK WITH TWO RUNS IN THE TOP OF THE THIRD, THAT’S OFF OF A HOME RUN FROM MADISON SISCO. AND HERE WE ARE 7-3. THE BOTTOM OF THE THIRD INNING, MADISON MERRELL, THE NUMBER SEVEN BATTER FOR BYU TONIGHT, LEADING THINGS OFF FOR THE COUGARS.>>Spencer: MERRELL IS FACING A NEW PITCHER FOR UTAH VALLEY. LEXI SORENSEN CAME OVER FOR LAWN FRASIER SPEND LOVE.>>Spencer: ONE BALL TWO STRIKES IN THE THIRD. THEY ARE ALL WATCHING THAT PITCH FROM SORENSEN, MISSING OUTSIDE, TO TAKE THE COUNT TO 2& CO. SORENSEN’S NUMBER 9.28 EARNED RUN AVERAGE. AND LOOKING FOR STRIKE OUT NUMBER 22 ON THE SEASON. IF SHE CAN HANDLE MERRELL HERE, THE COUNT IS NOW FULL. AND MADIE MERRELL. DRAWS THE WALK. THAT WAS A GOOD EYE. GOOD EYE THAT TIME, 3-2, JUST LOOK AT THIS IT IS VERY CLOSE. AND SHE IS ABLE TO MOVE OFF OF IT. A LITTLE BIT UP IN THE ZONE NOT MY BY MUCH, AND SHE EARNED THE WALK.>>Spencer: ALLDREDGE. WALKING IN HER PLATE APPEARANCE IN THE SECOND INNING. WE HAVE A BATTER AS HOT AS CAITLYN, EVEN THOUGH THERE’S THE BUNT SITUATION, YOU PROBABLY WON’T BUNT OR LET HER HAVE THE GREEN LIGHT AND SWING AWAY.>>Spencer: 2-0, THAT MISSES LOW. SORENSON’S NUMBERS, GONE 21 INNINGS. SHE HAS SURRENDERED HER 27 WALK, TO MADIE MERRELL. SWINGING AWAY. FOULED OFF THE RIGHT SIDE, TAKES THE HOP OFF THE STANDS AND OUT OF PLAY.>>Spencer: THE 2-1 TO ALLDREDGE MAKING IT 3-1. TRYING TO WORK THAT MOMENTUM, AND BRING IT HERE IN THE BOTTOM OF THE THIRD. WITH BACK TO BACK WALKS TO OPEN THINGS UP. I AM NOT SURE NOW WHAT SHE WAS HOPING FOR. VANDER HEIDE HAS COME TO THE PLATE.>>Gary: THE LEFTIES LAST INNING, WAS APRIL 4TH AGAINST BOISE STATE. AND THAT GAME SHE HAD FOUR INNINGS GAVE UP 13 HITS, 12 RUNS ALL OF THEM EARNED.>>Spencer: LEXI SORENSEN WAS NEEDING SOP ENCOURAGEMENT, AND HER COACHING STAFF IN THE CIRCLE, WE WILL SHOW YOU THE WEST COAST CONFERENCE STANDINGS WHILE WE HAVE A MOMENT. L.M.U. DOING WHAT THEY NEEDED TO DO 11-1, BASICALLY THEIR LAST WEST COAST CONFERENCE SERIES. BYU THREE GAMES BEHIND IN THE WIN COLUMN. THEY PLAY WHILE L, MANYU WILL HAVE A BYE. AND WAITING WHILE THOSE TWO FACE OFF ON BYU-TV ON MAY 11TH AND 12TH.>>Gary: WELL, IT IS SOMETHING WE DON’T SEE VERY OFTEN, THAT BYU IS NOT IN FIST PLACE. AFTER THREE SERIES HAVE THREE SERIES HAVE GONE BY, WHEN THEY COME HERE, BYU WINS THREE IN A ROW, AND THEY ARE BOTH 11-1, WILL IT BE BEST TWO OUT OF THREE WILL BE THE CONFERENCE CHAMPION.>>Spencer: VANDER HEIDE LAYS DOWN THE BUNT. SHE MIGHT REACH IT SAFELY, BY THE CHARGING BOTT. AND A GOOD DEFENSIVE PLAY, AND THEY ACCOMPLISH WHAT THEY SET OUT TO DO, THERE IS THE SECOND AND THIRD RESPECTIVELY.>>Gary: LOOK AT HOW CLOSE SHE IS.>>Spencer: SAMMY BOTT THE JUNIOR, FROM NEARBY SPANISH FORK UTAH. WILL NOT GET TO THAT ONE, NOR WILL HER TEAMMATES. RILEY GENERAL SENSE SINGLES OR DOUBLES AROUND TWO RUNS. ANOTHER HARD HIT BALL INTO THE GAP. BYU CONTINUING TO SOLVE UTAH VALLEY PITCHING TO THE OPPOSITE FIELD. TWO HOPS AND HITS THE WALL. ALONG WITH CAITLYN ALDRIDGE, IT IS 9-3 FOR BYU. WITH ONE DOWN IN THE BOTTOM OF THE THIRD.>>Gary: SHE IS GOING TO FETE A NEW NICKNAME. SHE WAS TWO FOR THREE, AGAINST SOUTHERN UTAH, TWO FOR THREE AGAINST SAINT MAY’S, AND SHE IS TWO FOR THREE TODAY, WE WILL CALL HER TWO FOR THREE.>>Spencer: BRELAND TAKING STRIKE ONE FROM SORENSEN. BYU SCORING THOSE TWO RUNS WITH ONE DOWN. UNLIKE THE SECOND INNING WHERE THEY SCORED ALL FOUR WITH TWO OUTS ONBOARD. 1-1 THE COUNT NOW TO BRELAND. THERE JENSEN ON SECOND AFTER DRIVING IN THOSE TWO RUNS. BRELAND HOLDS BACK AT THE LAST MOMENT. THERE WILL BE AN APPEAL. SHE DID NOT STAY SQUARED AROUND FOR THE STRIKE, SO IT IS 2-WITHIN. YOU CAN SEE KATIE JUST SMOOTHING THE DIRT OVER THERE, SHE CAME CHARMING IN AND THEN HAD TO RETREAT TO THIRD, IN CASE THE RUNNER WAS STEALING FROM SECOND TO THIRD. AND SHE PUT A LITTLE DIVOT MANY THE GROUND THERE SHE WANTED TO SMOOTH THAT OUT SO IT WOULDN’T TAKE A BAD HOP.>>Spencer: 2-2. THIS BYU TEAM, INCLUDING THE NINE RUNS TODAY HAVE NOW GONE FOR 30 RUNS P.>>Gary: AND THEN YOU GO TO THE HIT COLUMN. 18 LAST NIGHT. THAT’S 29. AND SEVEN TODAY, THAT’S 36. AND WE ARE ONLY IN THE THIRD INNING.>>Spencer: WALK ON THE MIDDLE. STRIKE OUT TO SORENSON.>>Gary: WELL, A GOOD PITCH THAT TIME BY SORENSON. OUTSIDE PART OF THE PLATE, TO THE STRIKE ZONE. JUST CLOSE ENOUGH SO THAT YOU HAD TO PROTECT, AND BRELAND GOES DOWN SWINGING.>>Spencer: IS.>>Gary: IT WAS LEXI TARROW THAT STOPPED IT FROM ROLLING IN THE SCORE COLUMN IN THE BOTTOM OF THE SECOND, WITH A TWO OUT RBI SINGLE.>>AND SHE WILL TRY TO SCORE. WHAT SHE WILL DO. A SINGLE, RIGHT DOWN THE RIGHT FIELD LINE, PASSED AT FIST. HARD HIT BALL ON THE GROUND, FINDING ITS WAY INTO THE JOWLED FIELD, 10-3 BYU, THE COUGARS HAVE NOW SCORED THREE HERE TO GO ALONG WITH THREE IN THE FIRST, AND FOUR IN THE SECOND.>>Gary: ANGULO WAS RIGHT DOWN THE LINE. THREE FEET OFF THE LINE, AND HIT IT SO HARD, THAT IT IS OUT JUST UNDERNEATH THE GLOVE AND INSIDE THERE SO A RUN WATTED IN FOR TARROW AND SUGGS COMING TO THE PLATE.>>Spencer: LIBBY SUGGS AGAINST UTAH VALLEY THIS YEAR, FIVE FOR 52 HOME RUNS, THREE DOUBLES EIGHT BATTED IN IN TWO GAMES. ENEN.>>Gary: SO NOT BAD NUMBERS. BUT IF YOU LOOK AT WHAT YOU DID IN CERTAIN AREAS 2 FOR 2 WITH 2 BATTED IN. WHAT YOU DID TO SOUTHERN UTAH, . AND IT ONLY GETS BETTER FOR LIBBY SUGGS. AS SHE WILL SINGLE. WITH TWO OUTS, BYU UP 10-3, AND DRIVING TARROW OVER TO THIRD, RUNNERS ON THEN CORNERS FOR BRIDGET.>>Gary: THE LEAN DRIVE UP THE MIDDLE AND YOU CAN SEE THE CENTER FIELDER, THROWING IT IN, AND IT LOOKS LIKE SUGG WAS TRYING TO TAKE THAT, BUT SHE HAD TO PUT THE BRAKES ON.>>Spencer: SO THAT’S GETTING IT IN A HURRY. NOW FIRST AND THIRD WITH THREE OUTS.>>Spencer: CLEAR. POPPED UP OUT OF PLAY, SLICING INTO THE STANDS THE FRESHMAN ONE FOR ONE WITH THE DOUBLE, AND A RUN DRIVEN IN. HIT BY A PITCH IN HER FIRST AT BAT. AND SHE JAMMED INSIDE, THAT’S BUNTING FOR THE SHORT STOP, RETIRING. THE COUGARS TACK ON THREE MORE RUNS. TEN RUNS WITH NINE HITS FOR LEE,>>Spencer: TO JUST KIND OF UNLEASH THIS ARSENAL.>>WHEN WE DID IT IN THE LAST GAME AGAINST PACIFIC TOO, WE ARE IN A GROOVE OFFENSIVELY. AND THE KIDS ARE SEEING THE BALL WELL. THEY ARE ZONING THE BALL UP. AND OUR OFFENSE HAS BEEN GOOD.>>Gary: YOU KNOW, COACH, CAITLYN ALLDREDGE SAID THE FAME SHE HAD LOST. DID SHE FIND SOMETHING IN HER SWING. SHE FIGURED OUT.>>WELL, SHE IS A DETERMINED SOUL. SHE NEVER GIVES UP, AND WE WORKED ON IT, AND WE STUMBLED ON TO SOME THINGS THAT WERE CAUSING HER A PROBLEM, AND SHE HAS DONE A GOOD JOB OF SHORTENING UP. AND SHE IS IN THE ZONE RIGHT NOW. SHE IS LOOKING GOOD.>>Spencer: BYU LEADING UVU 10-3. KERISA GAVE UP THE HOME RUN IN THE TOP OF THE THIRD, OTHER THAN THAT SHE HAS BEEN SHARP, WHAT HAVE YOU LIKED MOST?>>SHE’S NOT AS SHARP AS SHE IS CAPABLE OF. SHE IS THROWN QUITE A FEW PITCHES. AND WE JUST — [LAUGHTER] SORRY, I GET DISTRACTED EASY. SHE IS A FIGHTER. SHE CAME OUT SLOW AND HAD A ROUGH FIRST INNING, BUT SHE GOT HER COMPOSURE, AND CAME BACK, AND SHE IS A LITTLE BETTER RIGHT NOW BUT SHE IS STILL LEAVING SOME WHERE SHE CAN HIT THEM. AND MY SUSPICION IS SHE WILL GET BETTER AS THE IMGAME SERIES GOES ALONG.>>LAYED DOWN BY BUNDERSON AND GOT PAST ALLDREDGE. GOOD HITTING RIGHT THERE TO GET ON BASE.>>Gary: YOU KNOW, GORDON, YOU WERE A SHORT STOP. AND YOU LOOK UP AT THE SCOREBOARD, AND THERE’S NO ERRORS AND THERE’S A BALL BETWEEN THE SHORT STOP PLAYER, IS THAT AN ERROR OR BASE HIT IN.>>TO ME IT IS AN ERROR IF IT GOES BETWEEN YOUR LEGS. UNLESS IT IS HIT THE SPEED OF SOUND.>>Gary: DO YOU HAVE OFFICIAL SCOREKEEPERS THAT WERE THAT GOOD TO ME.>>WELL, MY MOM WAS, SO I NEVER GOT OUT. I THINK IT WAS OUR HITTER THAT HIT IT, SO I COMMEND THE OFFICIAL SCORER FOR GIVING US A HIT ON THAT. OUTSTANDING STUFF WITH THE HEAD OF OF BYU. THERE’S ONE DOWN, OVER TO ONE TO CONTINUE WITH BRIANNA WHO WAS LEADING OFF THE GAME IN THE TOP OF THE ORDER NOW. FINALS JUST ENDED, WHAT COO KIND OF A DIFFERENCE DOES THAT MAKE MENTALLY, KNOWING SCHOOL IS OUT OF THE WAY, WE CAN JUST PLAY FOR A WHILE.>>IT IS NICE. IT IS A STRESS RELEASE. OUR SCHEDULE IS SO RIGOROUS. THIS TIME OF YEAR WITH US PLAYING A LOT OF GAMES AWAY WITH TRYING TO GET TO BETTER WEATHER, WHEN WE GET A LOAD OFF LIKE SCHOOL, LIKE AT BYU IS A LOAD, IT IS JUST TIME TO BREATHE AND PLAY SOFTBALL. AND THAT’S ANOTHER REASON WE ARE PLAYING WITH EL IS SOME OF THE STRESS IS UPON.>>Spencer: ALWAYS GREAT TO TALK TO YOU, THANK YOU FOR THE LAUGHS AND THE QUALITY SOFTBALL. WE WISH YOU THE BEST OF LUCK.>>Gary: THANK YOU, COACH THERE SKYLER BOOK THE BATTER NOW WITH TWO OUTS. WENT BACK TO SECOND TO GET THE LEAD RUNNER. AND MOELLER IS SAFE AT FIRST, REACHING ON THE FIELDER’S CHOICE.>>Gary: WHEN YOUR MOTHER IS THE UMPIRE WHEN YOU ARE GROWING UP, THAT’S FAVORABLE.>>.>>Gary: HE HAS A GREAT SENSE OF HUMOR. AND AL WHAT A GREAT COACH, WHAT A GUY TO PLAY FOR.>>PINCH-HITTER FOR UTAH VALLEY. RIGHT BEHIND THE PLAYER THAT HAS 17 BEING HIT PITCHES. SHANNON HARTMAN EVANS HAS 16. SO IF SHE CAN TIE, SHE IS A GOOD HITTER.>>Spencer: TWO BALLS AND NO STRIKES NOW TO WILM YEAH. FOUR ON WITH TWO OUTS. UTAH VALLEY TRAILING 10-3. IF THE SOURCE STANDS BYU WILL NEED ONE RUN, IN THE BOTTOM OF THE FOURTH, AND THEN THREE OUTS IN THE TOP OF THE FIFTH TO TIMIZE ANOTHER MERCY RULE VICTORY. OF COURSE, THAT PUTS THE BYU DEFENSE TO MAINTAIN THEIR SEVEN RUN LEAD AND HOLD UTAH VALLEY TO THE THREE RUNS THEY ARE CURRENTLY PUTTING UP ON THE BOARD. PETE INTO THE PITCHER’S CIRCLE. ABOUT HOW TO PITCH TO WILLIAMS, WHO NOW HAS A TWO AND ONE.>>Gary: THERE IS SOMETHING IN ACTION, THE COUGARS, AND THIS PROBABLY MIGHT BE THE LAST BATTER FOR VIRAMONTES.>>TAYLOR HASN’T TAKEN A TON OF AT-BATS THIS SEASON. SO QUALITY PINCH HITTER RIGHT HERE, AND THE CHANGE UP, VIRAMONTES MISSING HIGH THREE AND ONE.>>Gary: LAST YEAR, TAYLOR STARTED OFF 40 GAMES AT FIRST, AND BATTED .280. WHERE THREE DOUBLES AND A HOME RUN, AND 15 BATTED IN. SO SHE HAS THE ABILITY TO GET ON BASE.>>Spencer: THREE AND ONE, WILLIAMS, TAKE AS GOOD HACK AT THAT PITCH. AND IT IS FOUL TIPPED INTO THE SCREEN, FULL COUNT. TWO DOWN, MOELLER IS STILL AT FIRST.>>Spencer: BYU WITH TEN RUNS ON NINE HITS. THREE RUBS ON FOUR HITS.

ALEXA STRID HIT THAT HOME RUN EARLIER, HER FOURTH OF THE SEASON. PUSHING THE COUGARS TO THE 8-RUN LEAD THEY HOLD RIGHT NOW. ALLDREDGE ON THE FULL COUNT. ONE UP FOR OUT NUMBER TWO. LEFTY SORENSEN. THAT TIME ALDRIDGE THOUGHT THAT PITCH WAS UP IN THE ZONE, TAKE A LOOK AT IT HERE WITH THE REPLAY. LOOKS RAH LITTLE HIGH FOR THE RISE BALL. AND LAYS OFF OF IT THERE, BUT A NICE FRAMING BY PEJA. BAY SHA. AND YOU ARE OUT OF HERE. SECOND STRIKE OUT FOR LEXI SORENSEN. THEY WILL MAKE SOME SUBSTITUTIONS MOVES. THOSE ARE THE IN THE SCORE BOX. AND YOU WILL NOTICE BYU IS HONORING AWARENESS MONTH. WEARING PURPLE RIBBONS TONIGHT, AND 100 PURPLE BRACELETS WERE GLYMPH OUT TO FANS HERE AT GAIL MILLER FIELD. IT IS GOOD TO SEE LIVIA OUT HERE. THE LAST TIME WE SAW HER WAS THROW THOSE UP THE LINE A LITTLE BIT, AND REACHED OUT AND WORKED HER EL POE BACK ALMOST LIKE A HYPER EXTENSION, BUT SHE IS ABLE TO COME BACK AND GOOD TO SEE HER HEALTHY.>>Spencer: THAT IS OFF THE TOP OF THE WALL, AND THAT WILL GO FOR A VERY LONG SINGLE. THAT WAS A WAYS TO RIGHT CENTER FIELD, AND BECAUSE IT WAS SO WELL HIT AND DIDN’T GO OUT OF THE PARK, SHE HAD TO SETTLE FOR A SINGLE BASE.>>Gary: YEAH, BUT THAT HIT ON THE BUTTON. NICE EXTENSION, AND THE FOLLOW THROUGH RIGHT AT THE BASE OF THE 220 SIGN. BUT THE OUTFIELDER BROUGHT IT IN. NOT ALL HITS ARE CREATED EQUAL.>>Spencer: OLIVIA SANCHEZ, WOULD STAND BY THAT. FROM INSIDE THE BATTER EKES BOX. THAT IS ABOUT A FOOT AND A HALF SHY OF GETTING OUT OF THE PARK. AND SHE IS ON FIRST. BOY, LOOK AT THESE NUMBERS. YESTERDAY, 18 RUNS AND LAST GAME ST. MARY’S. 13 RUNS 11 HITS. JUST LIKE A DOUBLE DIFFERENT EVERYWHERE YOU LOOK.>>Spencer: ERIN THE PINCH RUNNER ON FIRST BASE TAKING OVER FOR SANCHEZ. RILEY JENSEN GIVES THAT A RIP, AND MAKES THE CATCH. A LOT OF GROUND TO COFFER PLAYING JENSEN DEEP, TRYING TO SLIDE IN, AND CATCH THAT WITH THE LEFT FACING UP AND IT JUST POPPED IN AND AROUND HER HAND AND ARM, AND HITS THE GROUND. FOR SIMPSON, REMAIN ON SECOND WITH TWO OUTS. AND THE PINCH RUNNER IS ALSO OVER TO THIRD.>>Gary: SEE HOW DEEP MOELLER WAS PLAYING. SHE KNOWS THE POWER SHE HAS.>>Spencer: THAT’S A LONG WAY TO RUN FOR THAT, AND PART OF THE GLOVE AND IT POPPED OUT JUST A LITTLE BIT.>>THAT WILL GO FOR AN ERROR ON MOELLER. I HAVE ISSUE WITH THIS BECAUSE IF YOU ARE GOING TO AWARD A HIT AND AN ERROR FROM WHAT WE HAVE SEEN TONIGHT, THE GROUND BALL BETWEEN THE LEGS OF BUNDERSON IS MORE OF AN ERROR THAT THAT BALL NOT BEING CAUGHT.>>Gary: YEAH, THAT’S A GOOD POINT. I AM GOING TO GO OUT ON TOP, GARY.>>Spencer: LET’S JUST GO AHEAD AND END THE BROADCAST RIGHT THERE. THE BATTER. BYU LEADING 11-3, LOOKING TO ADD SOME MORE INSURANCE RUNS, AND BY INSURANCE SPECIFICKING SPEAKING TO THE MERCY RULE, IF THEY CAN RECORD THREE OUTS WITHOUT GIVING UP A RUN IN THE TOP OF THE FIFTH, IF BYU DOESN’T SCORE MORE HERE. SEE THAT PURPLE EYE PAINT, AS WE KNOW HONOR CYSTIC FIBROSIS AWARENESS MONTH. STEVERSON OVER TO FIRST, AND THE COUGARS CAN’T CAPITALIZE BUT THEY DO HAVE ONE MORE RUN. 11-3, THE MERCY RULE IN PLAY, AS WE GO TO THE TOP OF THE FIFTH.

YOU SCORED THREE IN THE FIRST, THREE IN THE THIRD, AND SOLO HOME RUN FOR ALEXA STRID IN THE 40 TO BRING US TO DOUBLE DIGIT RUNS AT 11.>>YOU KNOW, SPENCER, WHEN YOU SCORE EVERY INNING, IT PUTS SO MUCH PRESSURE ON THE OPPOSING TEAM. THEY HAVE TO RUN TO FIRST, TWO IN THE THIRD, BUT THEY TRAIL 11-3. THAT’S WHAT HAPPENED WHEN BYU — THEY ARE RELENTLESS. THEY ARE PLAYING SOME OF THEIR BEST SOFTBALL ALL YEAR.>>LINDSEY LEADING THINGS OFF, THE CLEAN UP BATTER FROM UTAH VALLEY. KERR STILL THE PITCHER FOR BYU. 15 AND SIX, EARLIER IN THE BROADCAST, I SAID SHE WAS 16 AND 5. SHE HAS 15 WINS AND SIX LOSSES IN 12 RUN GAMES AS THE PITCHER OF RECORD. SHE IS SEARCHING FOR WIN NUMBER 16 HERE, AND IS THREE OUTS AWAY BECAUSE BYU LEADS BY 8. IF THEY LEAD BY 8 OR MORE AFTER THE OPPONENT HAS HAD AT LEAST FIVE TRIPS TO THE PLATE. THEN THE MERCY RULE IS INVOLVED. BUT THE CONTINUE HERE TO STEVERSON. TAKE IT ALL THE WAY FOR STRIKE ONE.>>Gary: THEY HAD A GREAT YEAR LAST YEAR AS A FRESHMAN. TWO TIMES SHE WAS THE WAAC HITTER OF THE WEEK. SO A TREMENDOUS PAW FOR STEVERSON. 3-1.

STEVERSON GOES DOWN SWINGING ONE DOWN.>>Gary: BOY, SHE REALLY DOES HAVE A CHANGE UP, BUT SHE HASN’T USED IT IN THIS FAME. YOU CAN SEE HOW EFFECTIVE IT IS, WATCH THIS YOU HAVE THE ABILITY AND THE CONFIDENCE TOTARA THAT CHANGE UP. A LITTLE BIT DOWN IN THE ZONE, BUT SHE IS WAY AHEAD OF AND IT A REALLY NICE PITCH.>>Spencer: BAY SHA HIGH AND INSIDE FOR BALL 1. QUERY. JUST GETTING AHOLD OF THAT BALL. A HOME RUN TERRITORY IF IT WERE FOULED BUT IT FLIES OUT TO THE LEFT AND IT IS ONE AND ONE. SHE HAS FOUR ON THE YEAR, AND BOY, SHE TURNED ON THAT BALL.

AND A BALL HIT OFF ONCE AGAIN, AND IT DEFLECTS JUST LIKE IT DID THE FIST TIME IN MAYING DEFENSIVE FIRST BASE. IN PLACES BRELAND. TAKEN A COUPLE OF SHOTS TONIGHT.>>Gary: YEAH, THEY WILL BE A LITTLE BIT SORE AFTER THAT NIGHT NOW SHE IS A LITTLE BIT LOWER ON THE THIGH, AND A COUPLE OF PLAYERS HAVE BEEN HIT, AND YOU CAN SEE VIRAMONTES. THEY JUST — THESE GIRLS ARE SO TOUGH. THEY JUST SHAKE IT OFF.>>Spencer: AND THE COACH GOES OUT TO TALK TO HER, AND THEY ARE ALL SMILING AND THESE GIRLS I AM TELLING YOU THEY ARE TOUGH.>>Gary: MAKING A PLAY AFTER DEFLECTED.
