THEY ARE LOOKING TO FLIP THE SCRIPT. WHAT BETTER WAY TO DO SO THAN TAKE AN OPPORTUNITY TO BEAT YOUR ARCH NEMESIS UTAH. THE UTES HAVE LOST SIX STRAIGHT, THEY HAVE SPLIT THE SEASON SERIES GAME TWO BETWEEN THE UTES AND COUGARS GOES NEXT AGAINST BYU-TV. ♪ ♪ ♪ NCAA BASEBALL LIVE ON BYU-TV AND K, BEYU. THE UTAH UTES AND BYU COUGARS MEETING UP FOR GAME THREE OF FOUR IN THE 2018 SEASON. UTAH WITH A RECORD OF NINE AND 28. MOVE TWO GAMES OVER 500. ALONGSIDE GARY SHEIDE, HOWEVER YOU ARE CONNECTED GREAT TO HAVE YOU WITH US. THESE TEAMS IN THEIR OWN RESPECTIVE RIGHTS ARE LOOKING TO TURN THINGS AROUND. BYU DEALING WITH ADVERSITY, LOSING THREE OF THE LAST FOUR. UTAH TRYING TO SNAP A SIX GAME LOSING STREAK. THIS GAME COTTS AT A CRITICAL JUNCTURE AS THEY TRY TO MAKE A PUSH FOR SOMETHING POSITIVE IN THEIR CONFERENCE RACES. BOTH OF THESE TEAMS HAVE STRAYED A LITTLE BIT. BUT IN THE WORDS OF INVICK US THE, QUOTE, I AM THE MASTER OF MY FATE, I AM THE CAPTAIN OF MY SOUL, AND TONIGHT, THEY WILL BE A LITTLE SOUL SEARCHING WITH THE RIVALRY BETWEEN BYU AND UTAH, THE WINNER CAN TAKE THAT MOMENTUM AND CARRY IT ON INTO THE SEASON.>>Spencer: SPOKEN LIKE A TRUE COACH. WITH A POEM FROM INVICK US THE, NO LESS, BYU HOPES THAT THEY GET SOME INSPIRATION. WHO HAS BEEN OUTSTANDING AND THAT’S PROBABLY A UNDERSTATEMENT WHEN YOU LOOK AT HIS NUMBERS AND WHAT HE HAS MEANT TO THIS TEAM.>>Gary: ABSOLUTELY. HE LEADS THE TEAM WITH A .373 AVERAGE, AND THEN THE TOP TWO IN HOME RUNS AND RUNS BATTED IN AND AS AN IMPRESSIVE TEAM LEADING 15 DOUBLES. HE WAS 2 FOR 4 THE LAST TIME THEY PLAYED AND HE HAD A HIT IN 22 OF UTAH’S LAST 23 GAMES.>>Spencer: THE BYU COUGARS ARE SEARCHING FOR CONSISTENCY, THEY HAVE HAD IT IN THE FIELD DEFENSIVELY. BRENDEN ANDERSON HAS CERTAINLY PLAYED A LARGE ROLE IN THAT. BUT MIKE LITTLEWOOD WANTS IT WITH THE BAT IN THE HANDS OF THE COUGARS. AND AROUNDSON IS A GUY THAT CAN HELP JUMP START THE COUGARS.>>Gary: HE WENT TWO FOR FOUR, DROVE IN HIS TEAM’S ONLY RUN. IN THE SEASON HE IS IN TOP TWO FOR RUNS, DOUBLES AND RUNS BATTED IN HE HAS BEEN A 300 HITTER FOR MORE ON THAT WE JOIN THE THIRD MEMBER OF OUR TEAM.>>Gary: THAT’S RIGHT. BYU HAS NOT PLAYED A GAME IN SEVEN DAYS AND WHEN YOU HAVE THAT MUCH TIME OFF, YOU ALWAYS ASK YOURSELF IS IT GOOD TO HAVE THAT MUCH TIME OFF IN AND I ASKED THE COACH THAT, AND HE SAID ABSOLUTELY IT HAS BEEN GOOD. MAYBE MORE IMPORTANTLY, MENTALLY ON TOP OF THAT THEY HAVE HANDLED THE WEEK OFF GREAT, GREAT PRACTICES HEADED INTO THIS WEEK. NOW THERE ARE FOUR REMAINING CONFERENCE SERIES BEFORE THE END OF THE REGULAR SEASON, THE HEAD COACH SAYS IT IS TIME FOR THEM TO GO ON THE RUN, AND HE BELIEVES IF THEY CAN WIN EVERY SERIES THEY WILL BE IN GOOD SHAPE.>>.>>FOLLOWS BY CHANDLER ANDERSON. DUNN BATTING THIRD, RYKKER TOM IS A GUY TO WATCH OUT FOR IN THAT CHAMPION UP SPOT. PLAYING AT THIRD. ERIC THE DESIGNATED LEADER. AND KRAMER THE 8-9 BATTERS IN THE FIELD FOR THE BYU COUGARS. BEAU BOAR RUSH WILL GET THE START ON THE MOUND. 6.4 RATE, HE IS TWO AND ONE AS THE PITCHER OF RECORD. 25 INNINGS OF WORK, 14 WALKS FOR NUMBER 42 BEHIND HIM. AT FIRST BASE, BRIAN, ANDERSON AT SECOND, DANIEL SCHNEEMANN, NATE AT THIRD. AND BO BOAR RUSH WILL BE THROWING TO D.C. CLAWSON IN THE OUTFIELD FROM LEFT TO RIGHT. KRINGLEN, THEY WILL GO WITH JARED PERNS IN CENTER FIELD AND BROCK HAIL IN RIGHT WHAT DO THEY NEED TO DO ON THE ROAD.>>FIRST OF ALL THEY NEED TO GET A LEAD. IN THE FIRST TWO THEY LED EARLY, AND THE UTES HAD TO BATTLE BACK FROM BEHIND, AND SEVEN THROUGH NINE PRODUCTION, AND THE REASON ARE THE SERIES THE LAST THREE HITTERS COMBINE FOR ONLY FIVE HITS IN 30 AT-BATS. AND FOR BYU, THEY NEED TO SQUARE IT UP. BYU IS A TEAM AVERAGE OF OVER 300, BUT THIS YEAR THEY ARE JUST A 265, AND THEY NEED TO START A STREAK WITH 12 CONFERENCE GAMES LEFT, AND BYU NEEDS TO GATHER MOMENTUM FOR THE STRETCH RUN.>>Spencer: BOAR BOAR RUSH FACES JOSH MERCY JR. FIRST PITCH. OUTSIDE, BALL 1. GET RIGHT INTO THE GLOVE ONE OUT, AS THEY HAVE THE PUT OUT IN LEFT FIELD.>>Gary: IN THE FIRST GAME OF THIS SERIES HERE AT BYU, THEY DID NOT PLAY IN THAT GAME. BUT YOU CAN SEE, HE HIT 22 OF THE LAST 23 GAMES YOU STRAY THE BALL, ALL PARTS OF THE FIELD, HIT THAT ONE HARD, BUT RIGHT AT KEATON IN LEFT.>>Spencer: ONE DOWN FOR BEAU BOAR RUSH. TONIGHT’S STARTING PITCHER FOR BYU, IT IS A PITCH BY COMMITTEE APPROACH FROM MIKE LITTLEWOOD, WE WILL SEE HOW LONG HE GOES. TYPICALLY THIS IS A TWO INNING IF HE HAS IT REALLY GOING, MAYBE THREE INNING SITUATION. BUT IT IS A JUGGLING MATCH FOR SURE. FROM A PITCHING STANDPOINT FOR THE COUGARS. BO RUSH DELIVERS NOW OUTSIDE BALL 2. TO CHANDLER ANDERSON. F THE FIRST TWO THEY PLAY EACH OTHER, THEY STARTED AND GAVE UP THREE HITS AND GAVE UP TWO EARNED RUNS AND THE OPPOSING PITCHER WAS JACOB, HE IS STARTING AGAIN TONIGHT AND HE WENT ONE AND A THIRD AND GAVE UP FOUR AND A THIRD. THE SAME STARTING PITCHERS THAT STARTED THIS SERIES BACK IN MARCH 20TH.>>Spencer: BOAR RUSH COMES BACK WITH A FAST BALL AT 86 MILES PER HOUR FOR STRIKE ONE. 2 AND 1, 1 OUT, BASES EMPTY, HERE IN THE TOP OF THE FIRST FOR CHANDLER SANDSON OF UTAH. ANDERSON ON THE GROUND, THAT GETS PAST SCHNEEMANN, WHO HAD HEEM CO UP WITH IT WOULD HAVE HAD TO MAKE A NEAR IMPOSSIBLE PLAY TO FETE THE SPEEDY ANDERSON AT FIRST, THAT WILL GO FOR AN INFIELD SINGLE IN THE FIRST OF THE GAME. EVEN IF HE COMES UP WITH IT. AND THE STOP THERE THEY COME UP SAYING AND THEY GOT UNDER HIS GLOVE FOR A CLEAN BASE HIT. FIVE ON FIVE ON THE YEAR IN STOLEN BASES.>>Spencer: ONE DOWN AND THE MAN ON FIRST ANDERSON AFTER HIS HIT THROUGH THE HOLE. AND THAT ONE IS PULLED THROUGH THE OPPOSITE HOLE BETWEEN FIRST AND SECOND BASE. BACK TO BACK HITS FROM UTAH THAT FROM OLIVER DUN AND THE UTES ARE IN BUSINESS HERE IN THE TOP OF THE FIRST. SO THAT TIME BO TRIES TO COME ON THE INSIDE PART OF THE PLATE THERE, AND OLIVER JUST TURNED ON IT, JUST POKES IT RIGHT THROUGH THE 4-3 GAP THERE AT SECOND BASE. AND WITH THE STRONG ARM, OF HALE OUT THERE IN RIGHT. THERE WAS NOT GOING TO BE A CHANCE FOR ANDERSON TO TRY TO ATTEMPT TO GO FROM FIRST TO THIRD IT WAS JUST HIT TOO HARD.>>Spencer: ANDERSON ON SECOND NOW, AFTER BEING HIT OVER SAFELY BY OLIVER DUN. AND THE UTES WITH THEIR FIRST RUNGER IN SCORING POSITION. WILL TURN TO RYKKER TOM. TO STARTS THE THIRD BASE AND IS BATTING IN THE CLEAN UP POSITION. RYKKER TOM COMING OFF A SERIES AGAINST ARIZONA STATE, HE BATTED .385, FIVE OF 13 DROVE IN THREE, SO HE IS NO STRANGER TO A SITUATION THAT HE IS SEEING RIGHT HERE. TOM, AA HEAD OF THAT PITCH FROM BO RUSH. AND ON THE GROUND INTO FOUL TERRITORY, DO UNTHE THIRD BASE LINE.>>Gary: IN THE GAME AGAINST BYU, RYKKER TOM HAD A GOOD GAME. HE WENT TWO FOR FOUR WITH THREE RUNS BATTED IN AND THEN THE SECOND GAME HE WAS 1 FOR 5. SO HE HAD A HIT IN BOTH OF THOSE AND THREE BATTED IN IN THE 7-6 LOSS, IN THE FIRST GAME.>>Spencer: RYKKER TOM INITIALLY COMMITTED TO ONE OF BYU’S WEST COAST CONFERENCE FOES SAN DIEGO, HE TRANSFERRED. RED SHIRTED BEFORE BEGINNING HIS UTAH BASEBALL CORE AS A FRESHMAN, AND HAS NOW SOLIDIFIED HIMSELF IN THE LINE-UP. TWO BALLS AND ONE STRIKE, TWO MEN ON. BO BOSH RUSH AND BYU. GETTING THE STARTING NOD TONIGHT FROM HIS COACH, AND GOES WITH THE PICK UP MOVE. DUN SLIDES BACK SAFELY TO FIST. AND NOW THEY ARE GOING TO SAY THAT HE PAWKED AND MADE A MOVE TO HOME BEFORE HE THREW OVER TO FIRST BASE. SO BOTH OF THE UTES WILL ADVANCE BASES.>>Gary: I TELL YOU, LOOK AT THAT REPLAY, AND THAT WAS NOT — VERY HARD TO TELL IF THAT WAS A BALK, IF IT WAS. I THINK THE UMPIRES MAY HAVE GOTTEN FOOLED ON THAT, HE STEPPED OF TO FIRST BASE, AND WAS NOT COMMITTED TO GO HOME. I THINK HE IS ASKING HIM TO ASK ANOTHER UMPIRE, PAUSE THAT LOOKED LIKE A GOOD PITCH AND A QUOD THROW THE RIGHT FOOD COMES TO HOME PLATE. NOT REALLY. THAT’S HOW YOU TEACH IT.>>Spencer: IF ANYTHING VERY NITPICKY THAT GOES ADVANTAGE UTAH. AND THE UTES WILL BENEFIT. BIPLACING CHANDLER ANDERSON ON THIRD BASE AND DUN OVER TO SECOND. SO WITH ONE DOWN, BO RUSH NOW IN A JOSHUA HAS TWO BALLS AND ONE STRIKE.>>Spencer: 2-1 HIT UP THE MIDDLE. BOBBLES INITIALLY, HAS THE PLAY AND DID IT IN TIME, HE DOES. BUT THAT WILL DRIVE IN THE FIRST OF THE GAME FOR UTES. RYKKER TOM PUTS IT IN PLAY, SCORES CHANDLER ANDERSON AND THE UTES, GARY SHEIDE HAS TAKEN AN EARLY LEAD WHICH YOU PUT AS ONE OF THE KEYS.>>ABSOLUTELY. WATCH THIS PLAY, HE GET AS GLOVE ON IT. JUST PRIVATELY GET AS PIECE OF IT TO KNOCK IT DOWN. WHERE HE HAS A PLAY AT IT. WITHOUT THAT BALK, THAT MAY HAVE BEEN A DOUBLE PLAY BALL, BUT WITH RUNNERS AT SECOND AND THIRD, ANDERSON DOES THE RIGHT THING AND KNOCKS IT DOWN AT FIST.>>Spencer: TWO DOWN UTAH LEADING 1-0, THE BATTER NOW IS THE DESIGNATED HITTER FOR UTAH. BURRUP GOES OUTSIDE, 2 AND 0. BOY, YOU LOOK AT THE INFIELD SHIFT FOR BYU, YOU HAVE ANDERSON, ABOUT TEN FEET OFF THE INFIELD WHAT WOULD BE THE INFIELD DIRT. THAT’S SCHNEEMANN ON THE RIGHT FIELD SIDE, SO THINKING THAT HE WILL PULL IT HERE.>>Spencer: THAT ONE IS FOULED OFF THE END OF THE BAT BY MIGUELES. ERICK HAD A KEY HIT IN THAT SECOND GAME. HE HAD A THREE RUN HOMENER THE BOTTOM OF THE FOURTH TO PUT THEM AHEAD 3-1. AND THEY ENDED UP WINNING 4-3. SO THEY HAVE POWER. THE COUNT NOW 3-1. THE RUNNER ON THIRD, AND UTAH ALREADY WITH ONE RUNNER ACROSS.>>Spencer: NOT A SURPRISE BECAUSE THIS IS VERY MUCH A SCRIPTED APPROACH. TAKES BALL ONE FROM BURRUP.>>Gary: A RED SHIRT FRESHMAN. FROM TAYLORSVILLE HIGH SCHOOL IN TAYLORSVILLE UTAH. A FOUR YEAR VARSITY PLAYER THERE. THAT ONE IS FOULED PACK INTO THE SCREEN. TO MAKE IT ONE BALL AND ONE STRIKE. FIRST GAME AGAINST BYU, WAS ZERO FOR TWO, HAD A WALK. AND THE SECOND GAME HE WAS A ONE FOR THREE. PLAYING THE TWENTY-FIRST GAME FOR UTAH. WITH THE 1-1 IS LOW FOR BALL TWO.>>Spencer: CAME INTO THE GAME WITH A .304 BATTING AVERAGE. 56 AT-BATS HAS 17 HITS. ONE DOUBLE, AND ONE TRIPLE FOUR RUNS BATTED IN. MAKING HIS 9TH START AT FIRST BASE TONIGHT. HAS ALSO SEEN SIGNIFICANT ACTION IN THAT DESIGNATED HITTER ROLE, AND THE COUNT NOW IS 3 AND 1, BO BURRUP IS AWAY FROM LOADING BASES, ALREADY TRAILING 1-0. IF YOU ARE JUST JOINING US, BURRUP WAS CALLED FOR A BALK WITH ONE OUT. ALLOWING THE RUNNERS TO ADVANCE TO SECOND AND THIRD. AND A REASON IS DRIVEN IN, AND THERE IS A SECOND CONSECUTIVE WALK FROM BURRUP. THE BASES ARE INDEED LOADED. SETTING THE STAGE FOR THE RIGHT FIELDER.>>Spencer: BYU DOES HAVE ACTION, OUT OF THE BULLPEN IS NUMBER 41 FOR BYU. THAT IS KENDALL. HE IS A RIGHT HANDED PITCHER AND A RIGHT HANDED BATTER HERE FOR UTAH. COACH LITTLEWOOD LETS HIM WORK HIS WAY OUT, AND LOOKS LIKE HE WILL.>>Gary: HE SAT OUT A SIGNIFICANT AMOUNT OF TIME, ESPECIALLY IN PAC 12 PLAY. AFTER BEING HIT IN THE HEAD. UNDERSTANDABLY FRIGHTENING SITUATION, SO THE UTES ARE GLAD TO HAVE HIM BACK IN THE LINE UP AND LOOKING FOR HIM TO GET SOMETHING DONE HERE WITH A BASES LOADED SITUATION. WITH TWO OUTS IN THE TOP OF THE FIRST.>>Spencer: A 1-1. HITS FOUL, ROLLING DOWN THE THIRD BASE LINE, AND IT IS A BALL AND TWO STRIKES. A SOPHOMORE, OUT OF LIVER MOORE HIGH SCHOOL. IN LIVER MOORE CALIFORNIA. PLAYED IN 32 GAMES WITH 23 STARTS. LAST YEAR. 1-2 BASES FULL, UTES AND THAT’S OUTSIDE. CLAWSON. COLLECTS AND GETS IT BACK TO BURRUP NOW, TWO BALLS AND TWO STRIKES, TWO OUTS. BOTH GAMES THIS SEASON HAVE BEEN DETERMINED BY ONE RUN, BYU WINNING GAME ONE. UTAH 4-3 IN THE SECOND. AND THAT IS INSIDE TO MAKE IT A FULL COUNT. AND THINGS CONTINUE TO GET MORE AND MORE INTERESTING FOR BYU STARTER.>>Gary: THAT TIME HE SAW BO BURRUP HEADING TO THE DUGOUT. HE THOUGHT THAT CLIPPED THE INSIDE PART OF THE PLATE THERE.>>Spencer: WELLED PITCH OF THE INNING ON THE WAY, AND THAT IS GROUNDED UP THE MIDDLE. SCHNEEMANN HAS A PLAY AT FIRST, AND WILL MAKE THE THROW OVER TO SIOUX. SUH. SO DESPITE ALL OF THAT, UTAH MANAGES JUST ONE RUN THEY WILL TAKE THE EARLY LEAD, AND BYU COMING BACK>>1-STEER LEAD OVER BYU, GAME THREE OF FOUR BETWEEN THESE LONG TIME RIVALS. GOING DOWN AT LARRY H MILLER FIELD. THE BATTING LINE-UP FOR HEAD COACH MIKE LITTLEWOOD AND THE COUGARS LOOKS LIKE THIS. THE LEAD OFF MAN, BRENDEN ANDERSON. ONE OF OUR IMPACT PERFORMERS, ME WILL BE FOLLOWED BY BROCK HAIL AND HIS USUAL CLEAN UP SPOT. BRIAN SUH, DAVIS CLAWSON AND KYLE DEAN IN THE SIX, SEVEN, EIGHT, SPOTS. JARED PERNS, WILL ROUND THINGS OUT BATTING 9TH AND PLAYING IN CENTER. DEFENSIVELY, FOR THE UTAH UTES. STARTING PITCHER TONIGHT, IS JACOB REBAR, THE LEFT HANDER WEARING NUMBER 33. HE WILL BE THROWING TO HIS CATCHER SHEA KRAMER, AT FIRST BASE, THE BEN DICTUS, OLIVER DUN AT SECOND. RICHARDSON THE SHORT STOP. RYKKER TOM GETTING THE START AT THIRD. THE SPEEDSTER IN SECOND FIELD, AND HANDLING THE DUTIES IN RIGHT. UTAH TRYING TO SNAP A SIX GAME LOSING SKID. ALL OF THOSE PACK 12 PLAY, AND THEN LOSING A TOUGH SERIES AT ARIZONA STATE, AFTER THIS TUESDAY GAME, THE UTES WILL HOST PAC 12 ARIZONA FOR A WEEKEND SERIES. BYU WILL TURN THEIR ATTENTION TO A THREE GAME SET AGAINST SAN DIEGO. ANDERSON TAKES BALL ONE LOW.>>Gary: ONE THING IN THE FIRST GAME THAT BYU BATTERS DID, IS THEIR FIRST PITCH HITTING. TRYING TO GET AHEAD IN THE COUNT, AND BYU WAS HITTING THAT FIRST PITCH, AND THEY REALLY HIT SOME REALLY GOOD HARD HIT BALLS ON THAT FIRST PITCH. AND YOU CAN SEE ALREADY, HE IS TRYING TO KEEP IT OUT OF THE ZONE A LITTLE BIT. YOU NOTICE HE DOES HAVEN’T THE LONG HAIR ANY MORE. I TELL YOU, I LIKE THAT LONG HAIR THAT YOU HAD THERE, BUT YOU STILL LOOK GOOD.>>Spencer: REBAR TAKING ON ANDERSON, THE COUGARS TRAILING 1-0. ANDERSON WELL HIT BACK TO THE WARNING TRACK. WHO LEAPS UP AND MAKES THE CATCH WITH THE REACH. FOR A LONG OUT NUMBER ONE, IN THE BOTTOM OF THE FIRST.>>Gary: THAT BALL KIND OF BROUGHT THEM JUST A LITTLE BIT. LOOK AT THIS. ANDERSON DOESN’T LOOK LIKE IT IS GOING THAT FAR, BUT THE DEEPEST PART, YOU CAN SEE IT 102 FEET JUMPS AT THE WARNING TRACK AND MAKES THE CATCH. THE WIND IS KIND OF BLOWING OUT TONIGHT, SPENCER, FROM HOME TOWARDS CENTER FIELD.>>Spencer: ANDERSON RETIRED ON THE LONG FLY BALL TO CENTER FIELD. SCHNEEMANN IS THE BATTER. SHOWED BUNT. THROWING BACK AND TAKING STRIKE ONE. DANIEL A VETERAN PLAYER. A VETERAN OUT OF ALCOHOL LA VISTA CALIFORNIA HAPPEN HAS NOT FOUND HIS GROOVE BATTING 231 AND GOES DOWN 0-2 IN THE COUNT. FIST GAME THEY WERE ZERO FOR FOUR, AND THE SECOND GAME HE WAS HITLESS AT ZERO FOR TREE. SO HITLESS SO FAR AGAINST UTAH.>>Gary: I JUST SAW THE SEASON NUMBERS, 5.5 POUR, THAT ONE WELL OUTSIDE ON A 0-2 COUNT.>>Spencer: ONE INTERESTING THING IS HE IS NOT GIVEN UP A HOME RUN. THIS SEASON. SCHNEEMANN AWAITS THE 1-2. AGAIN OUTSIDE, EVEN AT 2 AND 2. LOOKING FOR STRIKE OUT NUMBER 19 AGAINST DANIEL SCHNEEMANN. 2 AND 2, AND PATIENTLY HOLDS OFF HAS WORKED THE COUNT NOW TO THREE PALS AND TWO STRIKES. THE BASES EMPTY WITH ONE DOWN IN THE BOTTOM OF THE FIRST, BYU SEARCHING FOR THEIR FIRST BASE RUNNER. SO DOWN 0-2, AND ALLOWED SCHNEEMANN A FREE BASE.>>THAT WAS A GOOD JOB OF HITTING THAT TIME. THERE WAS SEVERAL PITCHES THAT WERE NOT THAT FAR OUT OF THE ZONE. AND YOU CAN CAN SEE THAT HE WAS JUST KIND OF NIPPING AT THEN COOERS A LITTLE BIT. REALLY GOOD PITCHES AND WORKS IT INTO A WALK.>>Spencer: REBAR. TRIED TO GET HIM TO CHASE THE FAST BALL, HE WON’T, BALL 1. THERE YOU CAN CAN SEE HIM SHUFFLING DOWN, ONCE YOU FIGURE THAT OUT, YOU HAVE A BETTER IDEA AND KNOW WHEN TO START YOUR LEAD TOWARD SECOND.>>Gary: MIKE LITTLEWOOD LETTING THE UMPIRE AND CREW HEAR ABOUT THAT BALK THAT WAS CALLED IN THE TOP OF THE FIRST. SAYING THAT WAS THE SAME MOVE I SAW, KRINGLEN GOES TO CENTER, CLOSES HIS MITT ON ANOTHER FLY BALL FOR OUT NUMBER TWO. KRINGLEN RETIRED AND THAT WILL BRING UP BROC HALE WITH SCHNEEMANN ON FIRST AND TWO DOWN. FOR WHAT IT IS WORTH, REBAR DIDN’T BALK. HE MADE A GOOD PICK OFF ATTEMPT, WHICH I THOUGHT THEY DID AS WELL. BUT BASEBALL IS ONE OF THE MOST SUBJECTIVE SPORTS THAT ARE ON THE PLANET. AND LET’S GET SOME MORE INSIGHT INTO WHAT MIKE LITTLEWOOD WAS THINKING ON THAT CALL FROM JASON SHEPHARD.>>THE BIGGEST ARGUMENT IS WHEN THE THIRD BASE UMPIRE THAT HE HAD GONE TOWARDS THE PLATE FIRST, HE SAID THERE’S NO POSSIBLE WAY THAT A BODY CAN CONTORT AND THROW TO FIRST IF YOU MADE A PLAY TOWARDS HOME, IT JUST DOESN’T WORK LIKE THAT, SO IT HASN’T BEEN CALLED ALL YEAR LONG, AND HE DISAGREED THAT IT WAS A BALK.>>Spencer: THANK YOU FOR THE CLARIFICATION. HAS ALLOWED UTAH TO PUT RUNNERS AT SECOND AND THIRD, AND TOOK AWAY A DOUBLE PLAY BALL. IN THE MEANTIME, HE IS HIT BY A PITCH, AND NOW BYU HAS A RUNNER IN SCORING POSITION WITH TWO DOWN IN THE BOTTOM OF THE FIRST, TRYING TO EVEN THINGS UP. NATE FAVERO THE MAN CHARGES WITH DRIVING IN A RUN FOR BYU HERE LEFTY ON LEFTY, REBAR. HIGH BALL 1, TO FAVERO. AND THAT WILL PROMPT A CONVERSATION AT THE MOUND. WITH THE CATCHER SHEA CRIMER AND HIS STARTER JACOB REBAR. OUR SPONSOR TONIGHT, BRADY INDUSTRIES A PROVIDER OF COMMERCIAL CLEANING SUPPLIES AND EQUIPMENT. THERE’S A LOOK INSIDE THE DUGOUT. THE UTAH HEAD COACH. UTAH THIS UTAH TEAM GOT THINGS ROLLING, IN LATE MARCH, THEY WON SEVEN OF 11 BETWEEN MARCH 24TH AND APRIL 10TH INCLUDING THE SERIES WIN OVER ONE OF THE BEST TEAMS IN THE COUNTRY, OREGON STATE. BUT THEY HAVE SINCE DROPPED SIX IN A ROW AND HOPING TO SWITCH THINGS UP HERE IN PROVO, THAT GETS UNDERNEATH THE GLOVE AT SECOND. WHICH WILL TIE THE GAME AT ONE. DANIEL TOUCHES HOME PLATE, NATE FAVERO VERO CREDITED WITH THE RBI, AND WE ARE TIED UP AT ONE APIECE.>>Gary: THAT’S A PLAY THAT OLIVER HAS TO MAKE. HAVE TO GET THAT GLOVE DOWN, AND HE MAKES THAT, IT IS AN EASY OUT AT FIRST. AS YOU CAN SEE, WATCH THE GLOVE, THE BALL IS PUT INTO PLAY. LOOKS LIKE A BASE HIT, HE DOESN’T THE ET THE GLOVE DOWN, IT GOES UNDERNEATH, AND THE RUN SCORES EASILY, AND THAT WILL BE AN UNEARNED RUN FOR THE COUGARS.>>Spencer: THE BALL TO DUNN, SURE HANDED SECOND BASEMAN. IT IS WORTH NOTING THAT THE THE WAY THE SUN HITS THIS TIME OF NIGHT, PERHAPSES THAT COMES INTO PLAY AS HE TRIES TO MAKE IT ON A HOP, BYU WILL TAKE IT AND TIE THIS THING UP.>>Gary: YOU WILL GET TRUE HOPS ON THIS ARTIFICIAL TURF. AND IF YOU AREN’T USED TO IT AND OLIVER DUN PLAYS HERE THE FIRST TIME, BUT HE DOESN’T PLAY HERE EVERY DAY, SO YOU AREN’T SURE HOW THE HOP IS COMING UP, THAT TIME THE MAIN THING HE JUST DIDN’T GET HIS GLOVE DOWN.>>Spencer: THE ONLY PLAYER TO SEE THE FIELD IN EVERY GAME THIS YEAR, OLIVER DUN, THAT’S HIT ON A LINE TO RIGHT. BUT BRIAN SUH, AND ALL THREE OUTS. COURTESY OF THE FLY BALL FASHION OFF THE BATS OF BYU THE COUGARS DO TIE IT UP, ONE APIECE WITH ONE HIT, BUT THEY STRAND TWO, COMING BACK TO THE TOP OF BYU BASEBALL ON BYU-TV IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY TIM DALEY AUTO GROUP. SERVING UTAH SINCE 1968. BRADY INDUSTRIES, HONESTLY BETTER. AND BY AAA. LEARN MORE AT AAA.COM.>>Spencer: BYU JUST TIED THE GAME UP. DRIVING IN DANIEL SCHNEEMANN. COUGARS REPORTED THAT ONE RUN ON ONE HIT. TAKING ADVANTAGE OF BEING HIT BY A PITCH, IF YOU ARE BROCK HALE, AND A TWO OUT — OR EXCUSE ME, A ONE OUT WALK THAT DANIEL SCHNEEMANN DREW. BUT THE UTES COME BACK IN THE TOP OF THE SECOND, WITH THE 8-9, AND 1 HITTERS LEADING THINGS OFF. IS MATT RICHARDSON, BO BURRUP ONLY GOES ONE INNING, HE THREW 28 PITCHES. AND KENDALL IS NOW THE MAN ON THE MOUND TO START OFF THE TOP OF THE SECOND. NUMBERS NINE AND TWO-THIRDS INNINGS OF WORK, SIX STRIKE OUTS AND 11 WALKS. HE IS A GUY THAT THE BYU COACHING STAFF HAS HIGH HOPES FOR. HE WAS SLATED TO BE A STARTER LAST YEAR, HE HAS NOW KIND OF NESTLED HIS WAY INTO A MIDDLE INNINGS RELIEVER POSITION. AND WE WILL SEE WHERE HIS CAREER DEVELOPED FROM HERE, BUT THE HOMES ARE THAT HE CAN DO SOMETHING MAJOR FOR THIS PROGRAM, AT SOME POINT.>>ABSOLUTELY, AND THERE YOU CAN SEE HIM CATCHING A GAME TRYING TO GET ON THE SAME PAGE ON THE SIGNAL. YOU HAVE MATT RICHARDSON UP THERE, MATT THE FIRST TIME THAT UTAH PLAYS BYU. WHEN THEY LOST 7-6, THEY ARE IN THAT NUMBER TWO SPOT. THEY WENT TWO FOR FIVE. THE SECOND TIME HE PLAYED HE WAS BATTING IN THE 9TH SPOT, AND TONIGHT-BATTING IN THE 9TH, SO HE MOVES ALL OVER THE LINE-UP. HE HAS THAT FLEXIBLE TO HIT WHEREVER YOU HIT THEM, CAME INTO THE GAME BATTING 273. ONE BALL TWO STRIKES TO RICHARDSON. THAT ONE HITS IN FRONT OF THE PLATE. AND TAKES IT TWO BALLS AND TWO STRIKES. KENDALL MOTES IF YOU REMEMBER, IS THE GUY THAT PUT TOGETHER THE QUALITY STARTS IN BYU’S WEST COAST CONFERENCE TOURNAMENT COLLEGING VICTORY OVER GONZAGA, 16-3. MOTES. GIVES UP THE FLY BALL AND THAT IS SECURED BY HAIL IN RIGHT FIELD. ONE DOWN HERE IN THE TOP OF THE SECOND.>>Gary: THIS IS GOOD, GIVES THEM A CHANCE, AND GET READY FOR THE CONFERENCE. BYU HAS FOUR OR MORE TEAMS THEY WILL PLAY SO 12 MORE AND EVERY GAME IS CRITICAL FROM HERE ON OUT, AND THEY ARE GOING TO NEED ALL THE RELIEVES AND PITCHERS THEY CAN GET TO GET THROUGH THIS SEASON AND HAVE A SHOT SHEA KRAMER CATCHING SCREENING HE SEES, HIGH POP FLY, ANDERSON BACK INTO SHALLOW RIGHT THERE ARE TWO QUICK OUTS HERE FOR MOTES.>>Spencer: YOU CAN SEE THE PLAYERS LOOKING INTO THE SUN, YOU CAN ALSO SEE THE REFLECTION, THE SHADE ON THE CAP RIGHT THERE, AND OUT IN LEFT, THAT’S THE TOUGH POSITION THIS TIME OF NIGHT. YOU CAN SEE THE SUN JUST DIRECTLY COMING AT THE LEFT FIELDER. THEY HAVE THE SUN GLASSES ON, AND THE MITT, VERY DIFFICULT TO PICK UP A BALL WHERE THE SHADE IS JUST IN FRONT OF THE PITCHER’S MOUND, SO TOUGH TO PICK IT UP AS A HITTER, AND LEFT FIELD TOUGH TO PICK IT UP. AND THERE’S THE SUNGLASSES, IT IS TOUGH FIELD OUT THERE THIS TIME OF NIGHT.>>Gary: BACK TO THE TOP OF THE ORDER, JR. ON THE GROUND TO FOUL TERRITORY. DOWN THE FIRST BASE LINE, ONE BALL AND ONE STRIKE. FACE AGGIE THAT RANKS IN THE TON THE PAC 12. JUST A JUNIOR, 6’2″, 195-POUNDS AND LAST TIME DIDN’T PLAY IN THE FIRST GAME AGAINST BYU, BUT THE LAST GAME HE WAS TWO FOR FOUR, SO HE JUST REALLY ADDS AN ELEMENT OF LEADERSHIP AND TOUGH OUT FOR UTAH. A 1-2 FOR MOTES INSIDE AND LOW BALL TWO. THAT WILL SENT THEM BACK, CALLED OFF BY SCHNEEMANN, AND HE MAKES THE CATCH, AND SHALLOW LEFT FIELD. SHORT, SUCCESSFUL, INNING FOR KENDALL MOTES 1-2-3 FASHION. AND WE WILL GO TO THE BOTTOM OF THE SECOND, TIED AT ONE 30 YEARS OF HELPING PEOPLE PREPARE. THE BYU STORE, THE OFFICIAL OUTFITTER OF BYU FANS EVERYWHERE. DESERET FIRST CREDIT UNION. SHARING YOUR VALUES. AND BY DEXTER LAW.COM. FOR HELP WHEN YOU NEED IT MOST. BOTTOM OF THE SECOND INNING, NON-CONFERENCE BASEBALL, THE NC, AA VERSE, BETWEEN UTAH AND BYU, GAME THREE OUT OF FOUR. IN THIS LONG STANDING RIVALRY. BOTH TERMS BY ONE RUNG IN THE PREVIOUS TWO, AND RIGHT NOW WE HAVE A TIED GAME AT ONE APIECE. D.C. CLAWSON TO LEAD THINGS OFF. BATTING 7TH TONIGHT. AND FACING THE STARTER FOR UTAH, JACOB REBAR.>>BYU HAS HAD GREAT PRODUCT, IN THE FIRST TWO GAMES AGAINST UTAH THE FIRST GAME YOU SAW CLAWSON STARTED, SCORED A RUN AND WALKED AND THEN A SECOND GAME HAS A DIFFERENT CATCHER THAT HE WENT THREE FOR FOUR TO SCORE TWO. CHAWSON WITH THAT .342 AVERAGE. HAS BEEN CHALLENGED BY HIS COACHING IN A NUMBER OF WAYS THIS SEASON.>>Spencer: CLAWSON KNEW IT IMMEDIATELY. KYLE DEAN IS THE BATTER. AND ANOTHER YOUNG MAN THAT CAME TO BYU WITH SKY HIGH EXPECTATIONS AFTER AN INCREDIBLE HIGH SCHOOL CAREER. UNDER ARMOUR ALL AMERICAN PLAYED ON THE JUNIOR TEAM, WITH TEAM U.S.A. AND HAS DEALT WITH A RASH OF INJURIES. JUST TRYING TO FIND HIS NATURAL GROOVE ONCE AGAIN. BADDING 200 ON THE SEASON. HE IS A POWER HITTER, STILL SEARCHING FOR HIS FIRST HOME RUN. HE OPENED THINGS UP AT BYU, WITH AN INCREDIBLE BANG, PUN INTENDED. HAD THREE HOME RUNS IN A GAME AND THE OPENING SERIES AGAINST KANSAS BACK IN 2016.>>Gary: I REMEMBER WATCHING THAT GAME, IT WAS ON T.V., AND MY WORD IT WAS WHO IS THIS GUY. WE KNEW HOW GOOD IT WAS WHEN HE WAS RECRUITED HERE, BUT JUST TREMENDOUS TALENT. HAVEN’T DEVELOPED TO WHERE WE THOUGHT WE HUB, OVER TIME WE THOUGHT HE WOULD GET IT BACK.>>Spencer: AND THERE THEY ARE RIPPING A SINGLE AND A LEFT FIELD. PAST THOMAS AT THIRD, AND THE COUGARS HAVE THEIR SECOND HIT OF THE GAME. COURTESY OF KYLE DEAN.>>Gary: YEAH, HE HAD TO SIT OUT A LOT LAST SEASON, BECAUSE OF BACK INJURY. ANY TIME YOU HURT YOUR BACK, IT IS JUST ONE OF THOSE THINGS ARE YOU HAVE TO OVERCOME IT AND GET YOUR STRENGTH BACK.>>Spencer: WHEN YOU BRING THE BACK INTO PLAY, I DON’T CARE WHAT SPORT IT IS, IT WILL MAKE AN IMPACT ON WHAT YOU DO AND IT WILL FOOL WITH YOUR CONFIDENCE. AND CONFIDENCE CAN IS THE KEY WORD, WITH THE ENTIRE DEFENSE. MIKE LITTLEWOOD TOLD US THIS MORNING, THAT HE HAS GUYED JUST AREN’T GOING UP CONSISTENTLY, WITH CONFIDENCE. AND JARED PERNS PERHAPS IS A GUY THAT HAS I GUESS PRESENTED MIKE LITTLEWOOD WITH SOMETHING THAT GOES AGAINST THAT. HE HAS BEEN THE CONSIST CONFIDENT HITTER AND HAS SOLIDIFIED HIMSELF IN THE LINE-UP. FOR MORE ON KYLE DEAN AFTER THAT ONE OUT SINGLE WE GO TO JASON SHEEP FORD.>>Gary: THIS IS AN APPROPRIATE GAME TO TALK ABOUT A BYU-UTAH GAME, ONE OF HIS BUCKET LIST ITEMS IS TO GET A PICTURE WITH THE HEAD COACH OF UTAH. KYLE IN A ROUND ABOUT WAY IS NAMED AFTER HIM. WHEN HIS DAD WAS GOING TO BYU, IN THE 80’S HE LIKES TO GO TO FOOTBALL GAMES AND THERE WAS A BYU LINEBACKER NAMED KYLE WHITINGHAM THAT HE WAS IMPRESSED WITH, SO WHEN THEY HAD THEIR SON, I LIKE THAT NAME KYLE, SO KYLE DEAN HAS ALWAYS WANTED TO GET A PICTURE WITH KYLE WHITINGHAM.>>Spencer: I AM GLAD YOU BROUGHT THIS US, BECAUSE WE CAN PROBABLY MAKE THAT HAPPEN NOW. CHECKING HIM BACK TO THE BASE. CERTAINLY THERE’S A CONNECTION WATCHING THE GAME THAT CAN BRING THAT TOGETHER.>>Gary: ABSOLUTELY. I GO BACK THAT KYLE WITLEHAM’S DAD, HE WAS COACHING WHEN I WAS THERE, AND HE IS ARGUABLY THE BEST COACH I HAVE EVER SEEN. SO I LIKE FRED WHITINGHAM, AND I LIKE KYLE WHITINGHAM, AND THEN I HAVE TO CORRECT MYSELF. I LIKE BYU A LITTLE BIT BETTER. [LAUGHTER]>>Spencer: IN YOUR MIND HE IS ALWAYS A BYU COUGAR, BECAUSE HE STARTED AT BYU.>>Gary: YES, HE IS.>>Spencer: A BALL AND TWO STRIKES. OUT SIDE BALL 2. AND REBAR KEEPING AN EYE AT FIRST. TRYING TO HANDLE HIS BUSINESS AGAINST PERNS, THE JUNIOR TRANSFER FROM THE COLLEGE OF SOUTHERN NEVADA. LEADS BYU IN BATTING AVERAGE WITH .344. OVER TO FIST. AND REMINDED THAT HE IS AWARE. AND REBAR. AGAIN, OVER TO FIRST. YOU GO BACK TO KYLE DEAN, IF HIS BACK WASN’T BOTHERING HIM, HE WAS THE WESTERN REGION CHAMPION IN THE LONG JUMP AND THE FOUR BY 100, AND FOUR BY 400 IN HIGH SCHOOL. ONLY THE OUTSIDE PART OF THE PLATE, LOOK AT THAT JOB, NICE JOB, BUT PERFECT LOCATION. ABOUT 90 MILES PER HOUR ON THE SPEED GUN. 14TH APPEARANCE, AND HE IS MAKING THIS SECOND INNING AGAINST BYU IN PROVO, A MEMORABLE ONE, WITH A COUPLE OF STRIKE OUTS. HE HAS THREE ON THE SEASON, THAT SENT HIM BACK TO THE 300-FOOT SIGN. IN CENTER FIELD.>>Spencer: THE 1-0, AND THEY GO TO FIRST AGAIN. THE THROW IS LOW, BUT HANDLED. THESE ARE THE TYPES OF SITUATIONS THAT KIND OF BOTHER BASEBALL FANS SOMETIMES. WHEN YOU HAVE ONE OF THE BEST PICK OFF MOVES IN THE PACK 12, YOU HAVE TO UTILIZE IT. I GO BACK TO THE DAYS WHEN THEY ARE PLAYING THE DODGERS. THERE ARE SO MANY TO FIRST BASE, AND THESE KEEP DUSTING HIMSELF OFF, AND STILL GO, IT IS A FUN PART OF THE GAME, I KIND OF LIKE THAT.>>Spencer: REBEFORE SECOND IN THE PAC 12 WITH 3 PICKOFFS IN LIMITED TIME. THAT TELLS YOU HOW GOOD HIS MOVE IS. THE ONE BALL AND ONE STRIKE, THIS TIME COMING HOME AND LIVES A STRIKE ON THE OUTSIDE PART OF THE PLATE. EVEN IF HE WAS TO STRIKE OUT AND THE NEXT INNING, SO HE IS BEHIND IN THE COUNT THIS MAY BE AN OPPORTUNITY OF FEELING WELL ENOUGH TO TAKE OFF. ONE BALL, TWO STRIKES ON FIRST BASE, TIED AT ONE. AND REBAR PUTS TOGETHER A SOLID SECOND INNING, AS THE STARTING PITCHER, WE REMAIN TIED AT ONE. JACK MORRIS SPOKE TO THE BYU COUGARS AND THEIR FIRST PITCH DINNER A FEW YEARS BACK, REALLY EMOTIONAL THING FOR JACK, PLAYED TO YEARS FOR THE COUGARS. YOU KNOW, I DID, I HEARD ABOUT THEM. HE WAS 6 AND 3. HE IS A FIFTH ROUND DRAFT CHOICE, WHEN HE WENT FOUR AND SIX, BUT NOT REALLY IMPRESSIVE, BUT YOU CAN SEE HE HAS MOVEMENT ON THE BALL, A LOT OF SPEED AND JOHNSON. THREE TIME WORLD SERIES CHAMPION, I THINK MOST MEMORABLY LEADING OFF WITH A DOUBLE DOWN THE LEFT FIELD LINE IS CHANDLER ANDERSON, AND UTAH WITH A RUNNER IN SCORING POSITION. AFTER A 1-2-3 SECOND INNING.>>Spencer: JUST INSIDE THE LINE, BUT A REALLY GOOD LINE SHOT DOWN THE LINE, AND A LEAD OFF DOUBLE HERE, UTAH IS IN BUSINESS.>>Gary: OUT OF THE STRETCH, TO OLIVER DUN, THE BUNT IS LAYED DOWN. THE FIRST BACKED UP BY ANDERSON, AND THAT PREVENTS CHANDLER ANDERSON FROM COMING HOME TO SCORE FROM THIRD. SO HEADS UP SAFETY PLAY BY BRENDEN ANDERSON TO BACK UP THE THROW. BUT BOTH ARE SAFE ON THE CORNERS WITH NO OUTS HERE IN THE TOP OF THE THIRD. A REALLY NICE BUNT, THAT TIME JUST RIGHT IN FRONT OF THE PLATE, WHERE CLAWSON HAD TO GO OUT A LITTLE BIT FOR IT. AND WITH THE SPEED, SOMETIMES YOU TRY TO HURRY THE THROW OFF LITTLE BIT, AND HE JUST FELL OFF IT A LITTLE BIT, BUT FORTUNATELY FOR BYU, ANDERSON WAS THERE BACKING IT UP.>>Spencer: IT LOOKS LIKE HE WAS GOING TO APPROACH THAT AND TAKE IT AND THEN HE WAS CALLED OFF AT THE LAST MINUTE, GIVING CLAWSON THE RIGHT TO MAKE THE PLAY, BUT RESULTS IN AN INFIELD BUNT SINGLE AND RUNNERS ON THE CORNERS NOW FOR THE UTES. THE CLEAN UP BATTER FOR THE SQUAD TONIGHT. TO GIVE THEM THE LEAD.>>Spencer: HE IS TAKING A LONG LOOK DOWN THERE. AND THAT’S JAY WHO GIVES THE SIGNAL. FROM BILL IN THE DUGOUT. TOM. FOOLED BY THAT PITCH, ONE BALL AND ONE STRIKE. GET THE BYU FIELDERS THEY ARE PLAYING BACK, DOUBLE PLAY DEPTH. WILLING TO GIVE A RUN. THE GROUND BALL TO SECOND OR SHOT.>>Gary: OUTSIDE CORP.ER FAST BALL. TO GET AHEAD IN THE COUNT AT 1 AND 2.>>Spencer: RYKKER TOM ENTERED THIS GAME WITH THE SECOND BEST BATTING AVERAGE ON THIS SQUAD AT .297. ALSO SECOND ON THE TEAM WITH 43 HITS. HE IS RESPONSIBLE AND HE WILL ADD TO THAT TOTAL. TOM IS IN THERE. WITH AN RBI SINGLE THROUGH THE GAP, AT SECOND AND FESS. RUNNERS ARE BACK ON THE CORNERS, HOW ABOUT RYKKER TOM ALREADY WITH TWO BATTED IN.>>Gary: YEAH, THE FIRST ONE WAS A GROUND BALL TO SECOND, IN THE FIRST INNING, AND THAT GOT THE RUN. THIS TIME HE SHOT THE 4-3 GAP, AND FOR ANOTHER RUN BATTED IN. THE TOP OF THE THIRD FIRST AND THIRD.>>Spencer: MIGUEL IS BACK FOR THE SECOND PLATE APPEARANCE. TAKE STRIKE ONE. THIS POINT HAS BEEN VERY GOOD WITH RUNNERS ON BASE. BATTERS AGAINST HIM WITH RUNNERS ON BASE, THAT JUST A .071 BATTING AVERAGE. HOLDS OFF, ONE AND ONE. NUMBER FIVE BATTER FOR UTAH, DREW A WALK IN THE FIRST PLATE APPEARANCE. TAKES STRIKE TWO, RIGHT DOWN THE PIKE. A THIRD INNING JAM FOR THE SECOND PITCHER IN THE BYU ROSTER TONIGHT. KENDALL MOTES. JUST MISSES RIGHT THERE, TAKING THE COUNT 2 AND 2.>>Gary: MOTES IS TRYING TO WORK THE OUTSIDE CORNER AND DOES NOT WANT TO LET THEM PULL IT. THE BALL IS HIT INTO PLAY, SUH TRYING TO SCOOP IT AND A ROUGH INNING GETS WORSE. FOR BYU AND THEIR PITCHING KENDALL MOTES. HURRIES IT A BIT, COULD NOT DO SO, AND EVERYBODY IS SAFE, BASES ARE LOADED NO OUTS, UTAH UP 2-1.>>Spencer: MIGUELLESS AT FIRST.>>Spencer: HIT INTO THE LEFT FIELD CORNER AREA WE ARE THINKING UP HERE, DEFINITELY AN ERROR NO QUESTION. BUT IT IS NOT LISTED ON THE SCOREBOARD YET. IT JUST WENT UP.>>Spencer: IT JUST WENT UP.>>Gary: THAT’S THE BEST PITCHER OF THE DAY, RIGHT THERE. WATCH THE MOVEMENT ON THIS BALL. SLOW CURVE BALL. IT IS BREAKING DOWN, AND IT LOOKED LIKE IF YOU ARE BEN DICTUS, IT LOOKS LIKE IT WAS HIGH, BUT A NICE FRAMING JOB.>>Spencer: DEFINITELY ON THE STRIKE ZONE GOES IN FAVOR OF BYU, FOUL TIP STRIKE ONE. LOOKING TO THE CHANGE UP MORE, 77 MILES PER HOUR TO STRIKE OUT THE PITCH THE SAME WAY. THROWING THAT CHANGE UP A LITTLE BIT, TRYING TO KEEP THE UTES FROM TEEING OFF ON THE FAST BALL.>>Gary: MOTES WILL NEVER YOUR POWER YOU WITH HIS VELOCITY, BUT HE IS KNOWN WHEN HE GETS GOING, AS A GUY THAT CAN PLAY WITH YOU MENTALLY.>>Spencer: YEAH, HE HAS THAT SLOW CURVE, A GOOD SLIDER 95 MILES PER HOUR FAST BALL.>>Spencer: TO ADD TO THIS 2-1 LEAD FOR UTAH. AND THE STRIKE. FIRST INNING, THEY GROUNDED OUT. THE SHORT STOP DANIEL SCHNEEMANN. THE 1-2, POPPED UP. THAT BALL WILL FALL OUT OF PLAY. SUH GAVE CHASE AT FIRST BASE. AND THE COUNT REMAINS 1-2. DUN ON THIRD, TOM ON SECOND, MIGUEL IS ON FIRST. ONE DOWN, UTAH WITH A 2-1 LEAD, KENDALL TRYING TO GET OUT OF THE JAM, PICKED UP THE BIG STRIKE OUT, AND FACING DOMINICK. OUTSIDE BALL 2.>>Gary: HE STARTED TONIGHT IN RIGHT FIELD, VERY GOOD ATHLETE. HE IS AN ALL LEAGUE SELECTION IN SOCCER AT LIVE MOORE HIGH SCHOOL. LATE AND LOOK AT THIS, KENDALL MOTES. A BIG TIME BACK TO BACK STRIKE OUT. AS THEY ARE FOOLED BY A KNEE BUCKLING PITCH FOR OUT NUMBER TWO.>>Spencer: YEAH, YOU CALLED THAT ONE, THAT’S 74 MILES PER HOUR. REALLY CHANGES THE SPEED, BUT PUT IT RIGHT ON THE OUTSIDE PART OF THE PLATE, AND BY THE TIME THEY GOT A LITTLE OUT OF THE ZONE. THAT’S THE PERFECT PITCH THAT TIME. BY KENDALL, HE HAS MADE TWO WITH BOTH OF THEM HERE IN THE TOP OF THE THIRD.>>Gary: THE SHORT STOP MATT RICHARDSON FOR UTAH NOW. WITH THE BASES LOADED, KENDALL HAS STRUCK OUT BACK TO BACK PLAYERS. DELIVERS THE FAST BALL FOR STRIKE ONE, AHEAD IN THE COUNT. THAT WAS 73, BUT THE GUYS AREN’T GETTING GOOD SWINGS OUT OF IT AT ALL.>>Gary: HE DOES GO AROUND AND GOT THE LAST BALL OFF THE DIRT THERE, THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN THE THIRD OUT, BUT THE FIRST BASE SAID NO, HE DIDN’T GO.>>Spencer: TWO BALLS TWO STRIKES TWO OUTS. BASES LOADED AND RICHARDSON FIGHTS THAT OFF INTO THE SCREEN. SO WE STAY AT 2 AND 2. KENDALL TRYING TO STRIKE OUT THE SIDE. AFTER SURRENDERING A RUN, AND GIVING UTAH THE LEAD AT 2 TO 1. AND LOADING THE BASES WITH NO OUTS. MOLTS BIG CURVE BALL, THAT ONE IS WELL HIGH, FULL COUNT. BIG MITCH, UPCOMING FOR BOTH OF THESE TEAMS.>>Gary: ALL THE RUNNERS WILL BE MOVING, SO THIS COULD BE THE PITCH OF THE GAME, SO FAR.>>Spencer: THE PAY OFF WITH THE BASES LOADED AND HE GOT IT LOOKING. STRIKED OUT THE SIDE AND BYU STAYS WITHIN A RUN. HOWE ABOUT THAT, RIGHT ON THE OUTSIDE PART OF THE PLATE, LOOK AT THAT CURVE. AND THE LAST PITCH, FAST BALL RIGHT ON THE INSIDE PART OF IT, GETS THEM BYU BASEBALL ON BYU-TV IS BROUGHT TO YOU IN PART BY LUBE DOC. BOTTOM OF THE THIRD INNING. UTAH HAS ADDED TO THEIR LEAD OVER BYU. MAKING IT 2-1. AND THE COUGARS HAVE TO FEEL FORTUNATE AFTER THE JAM THEY JUST GOT OUT OF. KENDALL STRIKING OUT THE SIDE WITH THE BASES LOADED. FOR MORE ON THAT AND WHAT HE JUST PULLED OFF, LET’S HIT UP JASON SHEPHARD.>>Spencer: AS HE WAS WALKING INTO THE DUGOUT, OBVIOUSLY HIS TEAMMATES WERE VERY EXCITED AND MET HIM AT THE TOP, AND EVERYBODY WAS HIGH FIVING BUT I HAVE BEEN AROUND THIS PROGRAM FOR THREE SEASONS NOW, I HAVE NEVER SEEN KENDALL MOTES THAT ANIMATED. HE IS NORMALLY A VERY EVEN KEELED GUY, DOESN’T SHOW A LOT OF EMOTION, BUT HE WAS PUMPING HIS FIST. HE WAS LAUGHING AND SCREAMING. IN FACT, DAVID CAME UP AND WANTED TO GIVE HIM A HIGH FIVE, NO, I NEED A HUG. HE WAS PUMPED AND IT WAS REALLY EXCITING TO SEE. ALL RIGHT, THESE ARE THE EXPERIENCES THAT COACHES WILL POINT TO WHEN THEY GO OUT TO THE MOUND AND THE GUY IS STRUGGLING. YOU HAVE DONE THIS, AND YOU BETTER BELIEVE THAT STRIKING OUT THE NEEDS TO BE ON THE TOP OF THE MIND FOR THE COACHES AS THEY TRY TO GET THEM ON TRACK CONSISTLY. ONE DOWN HERE IN THE BOTTOM OF THE THIRD, TAKE EAR CLOSING LOOK AND WHAT JASON WAS DESCRIBING. HOW WOULD YOU RATE THAT CELEBRATION. THAT DOESN’T SEEM TOO EXCITED BUT THEN HE GETS INTO THE DUGOUT.>>Gary: YEAH, THAT’S WHAT YOU CALL A BIG SMILE. AND WE HAVE SHEPHARD IN THE DUGOUT. AND THAT’S SO COOL, AND TO CAPTURE THE EMOTION, AND THE TIME WHEN IT HAPPENS SO PRETTY LUCKY TO HAVE A GUY LIKE SHEPHARD IN THE DUGOUT THERE FOR BYU.>>Spencer: KRINGLEN FOULS THAT BACK INTO THE SCREEN, STRIKE ONE. AGAINST JACOB. PITCHES VERY WELL, DIDN’T GIVE UP A RUN IN THE BOTTOM OF THE FIRST. BUT NOW ENJOYING THE SLIMMEST OF LEADS 2-1. SHIP WILL ALSO SPEAK WITH THE HEAD COACH OF UTAH, AND HEAR FROM HIM AFTER THE 6TH INNING, WE WILL TALK WITH MIKE LITTLEWOOD ON SUNSET FROM THE DUGOUT AS WE HEAD INTO THE FOURTH INNING.>>Spencer: ONE BALL AND ONE STRIKE, ONE DOWN, NOBODY ON, WITH A 2-1 LEAD OVER BYU IN GAME THREE BETWEEN THE RIVALS IN 2018. THE PITCH IS WAYOUT SIDE. AND SLIDES TO THE BACKSTOP, TWO BALLS AND A STRIKE. SOMETIMES YOU SEE A PITCH THAT WILD, GETS YOU SCARED TO GET BACK IN THE BATTER’S BOX. 2-1 KRINGLEN UP THE MIDDLE, SINGLE. FOR THE BYU LEFT FIELDER. AND FLIRTING WITH THE BATTING AVERAGE OF RIGHT AROUND 300 NOW AFTER THAT BASE HIT. THE PAL IS NOT A BAD PITCH DOWN LOW, ATE ALMOST BIT BELOW THE KNEES AND THEY GO RIGHT UP THE MIDDLE WITH IT, AND THEY CAME INTO THE GAME BATTING 299, WITH THAT HIT, IT PROBABLY DOES PUT HIM OVER THE 300 MARK. 2016 WEST COAST CONFERENCE FRESHMAN OF THE YEAR IN HIS JUNIOR SEASON. TEAMED ONE BROCK HALE AS THE COMBO ON THE BYU LINE-UP. SOMETHING THAT PITCHERS NEED TO BE AWARE OF WHEN YOU GAME PLAN FOR THIS HITTING LINE-UP. THE STRIKE DELIVERED TO HAIL WITH KRINGLEN ON FIRST. THEY ARE DOWN 2-1.>>THEY HAVE HAD INCREDIBLE GEAR, AND THOSE TWO ON THE OUTSIDE PART OF THE PLATE IT IS ABOUT 90 MILES PER HOUR. KNEE HIGH, GREAT LOCATION. 0-2 TO CLEAN UP BATTER BROCK HAIL. STRETCHING FOR THAT TO FIRST BASE, OVER TO HIS SHORT STOP, HALE BEATS BACK THE THROW. TO FIRST BASE, HE IS RETIRED AT SECOND, SO THE COUGARS AVOIDED THE DOUBLE PLAY, THANKS TO THE HUSTLE OF BROCK HAIL.>>Gary: AGAIN, A GREAT PITCH ON THE OUTSIDE PART OF THE PLATE, AND WHEN YOU ARE DOWN, HE JUST HAS TO PUT A BAT ON THE BALL, AND HE DOES IT. PUTTERS IT IN PLAY, MAKING THE PLAY ON HIM, AND GROUNDS INTO THE OUT THERE.>>Spencer: HALE AT FIRST AFTER REACHING ON THE FIELDER’S CHOICE. THAT WILL BRING UP NATE FAVERO VERO. WHO DROVE IN THE LONE RUN IN HIS FIST AT-BAT, THE RUNNER GOES. AND BROCK HALE SLIDES INTO SCORING POSITION AT SECOND.>>Gary: THAT’S THE FIFTH STOLEN BASE. FIVE FOR SIX ON THE YEAR. LOOK AT THIS JUMP, WOW HE GET AS BIG JUMP. HE WAS NOT EXPECTING THAT AND HE EASILY STEALS. HE COULDN’T COME UP WITH THE BALL.>>Spencer: FROM VERO DELIVERED HIS RBI WITH TWO OUTS ON THE BOARD, NOW ON A SIMILAR SITUATION, AFTER HALE STEALS SECOND. AND THE LEFTY ON LEFTY MATCH UP ONCE AGAIN. A 0-1 COUNT. STRIKE TWO TO FAVERO VERO.>>AND YOU GO BACK TO THAT COMMENT, DELIVERING THE RBI, WE WERE THINKING IT WAS AN ERROR. AND IT WAS ON THE SCOREBOARD FOR FIRST COUPLE OF INNINGS BUT NOW THEY HAVE TAKEN IT OFF. AND GIVEN HIM A HIT ON THAT. THERE NATE FAVERO HAS 18 ON THE SEASON. HE WATCHES BALL ONE OUTSIDE. HALE WITH A BIG LEAD ON SECOND WITH TWO OUTS. AND A 1-2 COUNT. FAVERO. WEAK GROUNDER TO SHORT, HE HAS THE OPPORTUNITY TO BEAT THE THROW AND DOES. RICHARDSON WAS PLAYING DEEP. WITH HALE IN HIS POSITION, AND FAVERO WITH THAT WEAK GROUNDER TAKES ADVANTAGE AND HAS HIS SECOND SINGLE OF THE GAME. RUNNERS ON THE CORNERS NOW WITH TWO OUTS.>>Gary: RICHARDSON HAS TO KEEP HALE CLOSE AT SECOND, SO HE WAS PLAYING BEHIND HIM. HE WAS RIGHT BEHIND HIM MAYBE GETTING A CHANCE FOR A PICKOFF THROW, AND THEN RETREATED TO THE SHORT STOP AS HE IS RETREATING AND THEN HE POUNDED IT INTO THE GROUNDER. SO HE HAD TO IS STOP AND TRY TO GET HIM BUT IT WASN’T IN TIME.>>Spencer: WITH HALE ON THIRD, AND FAVERO ON. A BASE HIT WILL TIE THE GAME AT 2, IN THE BOTTOM OF THE THIRD, REBAR FIRST TO SUH AND IT GETS AWAY FROM THE CATCHER. AND HALE WILL BEAT THE THROW HOME. AS HE FLIED IN SAFELY, TIED AT 2. AFTER A WILD PITCH.>>Gary: WHAT HAPPENED THERE, THE WILD PITCH, THE THROW KIND OF BEACHED HIM TO THE PLATE THERE, BUT HE SLIDES UNDERNEATH IT. IT IS A HIGH THROW, CAN AS YOU CAN SEE HALE EASILY SLIDES UNDERNEATH IT, BY THE TIME HE TAGS HIM, HE IS ACROSS THE BASE. SO A GOOD CALL BY THE HOME PLATE UMPIRE, THAT’S RILEY AND THE COUGARS HAVE TIED IT UP HERE MR. I THINK HE WAS ARGUING THAT HALE’S HANDS NEVER TOUCHED THE PLATE, BUT I THINK HE SLID IN AND GOT THAT PINKY JUST ACROSS. HE WAS ASKING FOR THE UMPIRE’S CLARIFICATION ON THAT. THE PLAY STANDS WITH HIM SCORING ON SOME HEADS UP BASE RUNNING. STEALING SECOND, ADVANCING TO THIRD ON THE SINGLE. AND THEN SCORING ON THE WILD PITCH, YOU CAN SEE THAT LEFT PINKY TOUCHES HOME PLATE. WITH THE THROW HIGH AND BYU EQUALS UTAH WITH A RUN HERE IN THE THIRD.>>Gary: YEAH, THE UMPIRES HAD THE BENEFIT OF LOOKING AT THE REPLAY ON THAT PLAY, WHICH THEY DON’T. NO QUESTION, IT WAS SAFE. HE DIDN’T REALLY HAVE A GOOD APINGLE BUT HE WAS SAFE, HE SLID UNDERNEATH, AND THEY HAD MIKE CRAWFORD, FOR THE UTES.>>Gary: AND GET THEM REFOCUSED A WAYS. WHAT AN EFFORT BY BROCK HALE. NOT YOUR TIP CAR NOT TO SAY THAT HE CAN’T HIT WITH POWER. HE CAN REALLY MOVE AROUND THE BASES. BRIAN SUH HIT AS MOON BALL INTO SHALLOW RIGHT FIELD. AND DOMINICK MAKES THE CATCH TO END THE INNING, BYU TIES IT UP AT TWO APIECE DEW UP FOR THE>>Spencer: IN HIS SECOND INNING HE LOADS THE BASES. GIVES UP THE LEAD, AND COMES BACK WITH THREE CONSECUTIVE. WHAT WAS MOST IMPRESSIVE FROM WHAT HE PULLED OFF.>>Gary: OBVIOUSLY THE THREE STRIKE OUTS. IF WE CAN FEEL THE BALL HE DOESN’T HAVE TO DO THAT HE HAS A PLUS CURVE BALL, AND THE FAST BALL, AND UNFORTUNATELY, GOT HIMSELF DIDN’T GIVE UP THE RUN, WHEN I WENT OUT THERE AND TOLD HIM, I SAID HEY, TAKE A DEEP BREATH, IT IS LIKELY THEY WILL SCORE, NOT LET THIS GET AWAY FROM US, AND I WAS WRONG, I DIDN’T SCORE.>>BOY, HE LOOKS LIKE HE FOUND HIS CHANGE UP, JUST AT THE RIGHT TIME. A SLIDER CURVE BALL, CHANGE UP, THOSE LAST THREE WHICH IS WHAT THEY NEEDED AT THAT POINT.>>WHAT CAN TELL YOU TELL US ABOUT THE DEVELOPMENT OF RETT AS THE MIDDLE INNING RELIEVER.>>HE IS JUST A PROGRESS, AND HE IS — HE HAD THAT MENTALITY IN HIGH SCHOOL, HAD THAT MENTALITY AT SALT LAKE CITY COMMUNITY COLLEGE. GOT BACK FROM HIS MISSION, HE IS SOFT TO BE HONEST WITH YOU, HIS STUFF IS BETTER, MID TO UPPER 80’S. WHAT MAKES HIM GOOD FOR US, IS HIS ATTITUDE.>>YOU TOLD ME EARLIER, IN SPORTS NATION, AS KRAMER GOES DOWN SWINGING, CLAWSON MAKES THE THROW AT FIRST, ONE DOWN.>>THAT YOU LIKED WHAT YOU SAW BUT YOU ARE LOOKING FOR CONFIDENCE. FROM A LINE UP THAT YOU FIGURED YOU WOULD HAVEN’T TO WORRY ABOUT THAT COMING OFF A YEAR THEY HAD AT THE PLATE. WHERE DO YOU STAND WITH THE TYPE OF AT-BATS YOU HAVE SEEN FROM YOUR TEAM IN TERMS OF THE CONFIDENCE?>>WELL, A LITTLE BIT UP AND DOWN. HE TAKE AS 1-2 FAST BALL, I THINK HE IS LOOKING AT THE SLIDER, WE NEVER LOOK OFF SPEED WITH TWO, YOU ALL TRY TO ADJUST, SO IT’S BEEN UP AND DOWN. BUT NATE HAS HAD TWO REALLY GOOD AT-BATS SUH HAS HAD A COUPLE OF BATHS WHERE HE GOT A PITCH HE CAN HIT, AND DOESN’T DO A LOT WITH IT. SO YOU KNOW, JEFF ALL, 2-2 BALL FAME AND WHAT YOU EXPECT WHEN WE PLAY UTAH.>>Gary: MIKE, YOU HAVE A GOOD CROWD OUT HERE, WE WILL KNOW WHAT IT IS, BUT IT IS JUST — YOU ARE PART OF EXCITING BASEBALL THAT YOU PLAY, AND IT IS FUN TO SEE THE CROWD OUT HERE.>>IT IS, WE PROBABLY PUSHING 3,000 TONIGHT. IT’S BEEN THE FIRST WARM NIGHT. EVEN THOUGH WE HAVE SLEEVES ON, IT IS THE FIRST GAME I THINK AT OUR PARK THIS YEAR, THAT HAS BEEN NICE WEATHER.>>YOU HAVE EARNED THE GOOD WEATHER.>>I TELL YOU.>>WE WISH YOU THE BEST OF LUCK.>>2-2 BALL GAME, TOP OF THE FOURTH, ONE DOWN, BRETT PARKINSON WHO COACH LITTLEWOOD JUST CALLED A BULLDOGS, IS THE THIRD PITCHER ON THE SCORE SHEET TONIGHT. FOR BYU, FACING A VERY TALENTED DESHON JR. ONE OF THE BEST BATTERS IN THE ENTIRE PAC 12. 367 THIS SEASON. AND LOOK AT THAT, HE TAKES DOWN KEARSESY JR. LOOKS ON STRIKES. SO IF YOU GO BACK TO KENDALL DID TO GET OUT OF THE TOP, THAT’S FOUR STRIKE OUTS AND FIVE BATTERS FACED. OR IS IT 5 AND 5.>>Spencer: YEAH, CORRECTION, FIVE IN A ROW.>>Gary: WELL, YOU TAKE A LOOK AT THAT LOCATION, ON THE BLACK. AND AS THE COACH POINTED OUT YOU DON’T LASH CURVE BALL, YOU LOOK FAST BALL, AND ADJUST. YOU WERE EXPECTING MAYBE SOMETHING OFF SPEED, BUT THAT JEST WENT RIGHT BY HIM.>>Spencer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pencer: DEAN MAKING HIS 11T. AND THAT ONE IS ON THE GROUND, IN PLAY, DEAN WILL TRY TO BEAT IT OUT, A LONG THROW, AND HE DOES. AND HE IS ON FIRST WITH THE HUSTLE PLAY, HE IS 2 FOR 2.>>Gary: YEAH, HE HAD TO BACK UP ON THAT BALL. A BANG-BANG PLAY. AND BYU BENEFITED FOR THE CALL. THAT’S — TIGHT MOVE.>>Gary: IT IS ON AT THE FIRST AND IT WAS A BEAUTIFUL STRETCH. THAT JUST BARELY BEAT HIM.>>IT WAS CLOSE, COULD HAVE GONE EITHER WAY, BUT HE HAS THE BENEFIT OF IT. A STRONG THROW TO FIRST BUT HE JUST LAYS IT OUT FOR THE SECOND OF THE GAME. PIERCE FROM THE STRETCH, PERNS. SCORING MOMENTARILY TO BUNT, PULLS BACK. AS THAT PITCH CAME LOW INTO THE ZONE, ONE AND ONE.>>Gary: ABOUT TIME THEY TOOK A LOOK OVER, AND SAW RYKKER TOM PLAYING BACK ABOUT FIVE FEET OFF THE BAG. SO PERNS WAS GOING TO PUT THAT ONE DOWN THE THIRD BASE SIDE, TRY TO EARN A LITTLE BUNT. WORST FACE SACRIFICE, AND GET THE HIT.>>Spencer: IS ONE AND ONE TO THE NUMBER NINE BATTER, THE THROW OFIRST FROM PIERCE. PUSHES DEAN BACK TO THE BAG. AND PIERCE WILL GET SET FOR A 1-1 PITCH, ONCE AGAIN. FOUL TIP INTO THE SCREEN, 1 AND 2, HE STRUCK OUT IN HIS FIRST AT-BAT IN THE SECOND INNING. SEE HOW FAR THAT BOUNCES BACK TO THE PITCHER, THAT’S WHAT HAPPENS ON THAT FAST BALL OR WILD PITCH, WHEN KRAMER WENT BACK, THE NEW MATTING MAKES IT POP BACK OUT TOWARDER THE CATCHER MAKING IT THAT MORE DIFFICULT TO SCORE A LONG LOOK FROM PIERCE OVER TO KYLE DEAN AT, AND THE THROW OVER. ONCE AGAIN, KYLE DEAN HAS NOT ATTEMPTED A STOLEN BASE. IN HIS LIMITED 37 AT-BATS COMPARED TO WHAT THE REST OF THE TEAM HAS DONE. HAS NOT BEEN ON BASE A TON RELATIVELY. BUT TWICE TONIGHT, AND HAS CERTAINLY DRAWN THE ATTENTION OF THE UTAH PITCHER RILEY PIERCE. TWO BALLS AND TWO STRIKES TRYING TO ADVANCE DEAN OVER FROM FIRST. THAT WILL DRAW SOME JEERS FROM THIS CROWD, IN PROVO UTAH. ON DECK YOU HAVE ANDERSON AND THE TOP OF THE ORDER, YOU CAN SEE HOW CONSERVATIVE THEY ARE. AND THAT MISSES OUTSIDE.>>Gary: WHETHER SHE SENDS HER OR NOT, WITH THE 3-AND TWO COUNT, THIS IS A SITUATION WHERE YOU COULD EVEN BE MORE SUSCEPTIBLE MAYBE TO SENDING THEM.>>Spencer: FULL COUNT, ONE OUT, DEAN ON FIRST, 2-2 GAME. JARED PERNS. FACING RILEY, AND IT IS A HIT AND RUN. POPPED UP THAT BALL, OUT OF PLAY, JUST OVER THE UTAH DUGOUT. DEAN HAD A GOOD PITCH ON THAT, BUT HE IS LOOKING TO DRIVE IT SOMEWHERE.>>Spencer: IS PIERCE TAKES THE SIGNAL, THE UTAH CATCHER. ANOTHER PAYOFF PITCH, DEAN IS GOING, AND STRIKE OUT, THROW DOWN TO SECOND, AND WHAT A PLAY BY THE UTAH DEFENSE. KRAMER GUNS DOWN DEAN. FOR A STRIKE ‘EM OUT THROW ‘EM OUT END TO THE FOURTH INNING. PERNS, BEHIND THE FAST BALL FROM PIERCE, KRAMER WITH THE THROW DOWN TO DUN AT SECOND ON TARGET, AND DEANS IS THROWN OUT, WE WILL STAY>>Spencer: BETWEEN THE UTAH UTES OUT OF THE PAC 12 AND THE BYU COUGARS REPRESENTING THE WEST COAST CONFERENCE. BROUGHT TO YOU BY EMERGENCY SEVENS FOR OVER 30 YEARS HELPING PEOPLE PREPARE AT BE PREPARES.COM, EMERGENCY ESSENTIALS. AT THE ROUGHLY HALF WAY POINT OF THE GAME, GARY, LAYING OUT SOME KEYS HOW DO YOU FEEL EACH OF THESE TEAMS ARE DOING IN REGARD TO THOSE.>>Gary: I THINK SO FAR THEY NEED TO GET A LEAD AND THEY DID THAT’S WHY THE GAME IS 2-2, AND 7TH AND 9TH PRODUCTION SO FAR, SEVEN THROUGH NINE BAT IS FOR UTAH. ARE ZERO FOR SIX, COMBINED, SO THEY HAVEN’T BEEN ABLE TO GET THAT PRODUCTION YET. AND BYU ON THE OTHER SIDE, SQUARING IT UP AND THAT FIVE HITS SO FAR, AND THEY HAVE OPPORTUNITIES TO GET OTHER RUNS IN, AND IF THEY CAN DO THAT AND START GETTING AHEAD A LITTLE BIT HERE, START A STREAK, AND THEN USE THAT MOMENTUM, TO TAKE THEM THROUGH THE CONFERENCE PLAY AS THEY HOST SAN DIEGO LATE THEY ARE WEEK.>>Spencer: THE COUGARS TRYING TO WIN THEIR SECOND GAME IN THE LAST 5. UTAH TRYING TO SNAP A SIX GAME LOSING STREAK. EACH TEAM TAKING A GAME APIECE BY ONE RUN STRIKE OUT. FOR PARKINSON, HIS THIRD. IN THE FOUR OUT OUTS THAT HE HAS BEEN RESPONSIBLE WHEN HE IS LIVING OEN THATOUT SIDE CORNER, BOY, THAT’S JUST A PERFECT PITCH, TOUGH TO GO AFTER THAT ONE ON THE OUTSIDE PART OF THE CORNER. GREAT PITCH THAT TIME BY PARKINSON THEN TAKES THE STRIKE OUT, ONE DOWN IN THE TOP OF THE FIFTH. AND HE HAS DRIVEN IN BOTH RUNS FOR UTAH. MUCH LIKE NATE HAS DRIVEN IN OR BEEN A PART OF GETTING THOSE RUNS IN FOR BYU.>>Gary: AND RYKKER TOM HAS DONE A NICE JOB OF HITTING UP THERE. HE HAS BEEN GOING TO THE OPPOSITE SIDE, THE BALL IS OUTSIDE, THEY ARE TRYING TO PITCH THEM AWAY, HE GOT THE RUN IN, AND THE LAST AT-BAT HE HIT IT BETWEEN THE SECOND BASEMAN AND THE FIRST BASEMAN SO HE IS ABLE TO USE ALL THE FIELD.>>Spencer: TOM INTO THE GAP IN LEFT CENTER FIELD. TO THE WARNING TRACK, AND HE EASILY WILL HAVE THE STAND UP DOUBLE, WITH ONE OUT. RYKKER TOM IN THE CLEAN UP POSITION NOW 2 FOR 3. WITH TWO RUNS BATTED IN A SINGLE AND A DOUBLE MOST RECENTLY, HERE WITH ONE OUT IN THE FIFTH.>>Gary: WELL, THAT’S A PITCH THAT THE COACH CALLED COOKIES, THAT WAS JUST RIGHT DOWN THE HEART OF THE PLATE AND TOM JUST RIPPED IT INTO THE GAP OUT THERE FOR AN EASY DOUBLE. THAT IS ONE THAT GOT AWAY A LITTLE BIT. THERE TOM IMPROVES HIS BATTING AVERAGE TO OVER 300, NOW AT 304, WITH HIS TWO HIT PERFORMANCE THUS FAR TONIGHT. HIT NUMBER 6 FOR THE UTES, ERICK GOES TO THE GAP IN LEFT CENTER. THAT 11 HOPS THE WALL, AND WILL BRING IN THE GO AHEAD RUN FOR THE UTES. BACK TO BACK DOUBLES IN THE FIFTH, AND IT IS A 3-2 LEAD FOR THE VISITORS FROM SALT LAKE CITY.>>Gary: BOY, THEY HIT THAT ONE RIGHT ON THE BUTTON. LOOKS LIKE THEY HAVE THE SAME SPOT, BOTH OF THEM ONE HOPPING THE WALL. THE 380, IN LEFT CENTER, AND 402 IN CENTER, SO THAT HITS ABOUT 385, AND YOU CAN SEE MCGILLIS, IF IT GETS UP IN THE AIR, THAT BALL WILL BE OUT OF HERE, BUT THE SHORT HOPS THE WALL, AND STROLLS INTO SECOND. WITH AN RBI DOUBLE, BACK TO BACK DOUBLES HERE.>>Spencer: TOM SCORES A RUN TO GO ALONG WITH THE TWO BATTED IN. AND PARKINSON AFTER A STRIKE OUT TO OPEN THINGS UP IN THE FIFTH. HAS GIVEN UP BACK TO BACK DOUBLES AND NOW FINDS HIMSELF TRAILING THE YULES BY ONE RUN, AT 3-2. BEN DICTUS. RBI OPPORTUNITY, ON SECOND, FOUL BALL STRIKE TWO. HIS RIVALRY GAMES TYPICALLY, COME DOWN TO THE WIRE. AND END WITH A RUN OR TWO. AND THE FIRST TWO GAMES THIS YEAR, 7-6 BYU WIN, IN LATE MARCH IN THE FIRST WEEK OF APRIL. A 4-3 VICTORY ON THEIR HOME FIELD. AND NOW THE UTES WITH A ONE RUN ARE LEAD HALF WAY THROUGH THE GAME, TRYING TO ADD TO THAT AS PARK KENNISON GOES WELL OUTSIDE. TO MAKE IT TWO BALLS AND TWO STRIKES. FIGHTS THAT ONE OFF.>>Gary: BEFORE YOU TALK ABOUT CLOSE GAMES YOU ARE RIGHT ON. THE DESERT FIRST DUEL YEAR BY YEAR WITH BASEBALL, FOR BYU, THEY HAVE WON I BELIEVE IT IS NINE OF THE LAST TEN, BUT THEY WIN 1-1, THE GAMES ARE TIED AND THEY GO BY TOTAL RUNS IN THE TWO GAMES. THEY HAVE DONE THAT A COUPLE OF TIMES SO ALL OF THESE GAMES AND THESE RIVALRIES HAVE BEEN TIED AND CONTESTED AND THEY WILL USUALLY GO DOWN TO THE THIRD GAME TO DECIDE. I SHOULD SAY DESERET FIRST.>>Spencer: LAST YEAR, 2017, BYU 1-1. BUT BYU WON THE FEST 11-6, AND THEN THEY WON ONE AT HOME. SO BYU GETS THE FAVOR BY RUN DIFFERENTIAL. BEFORE THIS CRITICAL PITCH. AND THE COUGARS ARE HOPING TO STAY WITHIN ONE RUN. THAT ONE IS FOUGHT AFTER. OUT TOWARDS FIRST BASE. INTO FULL TERRITORY, AND WILL STAY AT FULL COUNT. PARKINSON. SHALLOW RIGHT FIELD, HALE. IS GOING TO LET THAT BALL DROP IN FRONT OF THEM, AND THAT WILL DRIVE MIGUELLESS TO THIRD BASE. SO UTAH AGAIN THREATENING WITH RUNNERS ON THE CORNERS, ONE DOWN. THEY ALREADY HAVE ONE RUN ACROSS HERE IN THE FIFTH INNING. AND COMING UP FOR UTAH AND BILL. THIS IS WHERE YOU FEEL THAT UTAH NEEDS TO STEP UP IF THEY WANT TO WIN THIS GAME, BECAUSE YOU ENTER THE BACK PART OF THE ORDER. SEVEN, EIGHT, NINE, AND AS YOU MENTION THE 7-8-BATTERS COMBINE ZERO FOR SICK, THEY CAN CERTAINLY CHANGE THINGS AROUND HERE. WHO LAYS DOWN A BEAUTIFUL BUNT, SUH GOES HOME AND THE COUGARS TRY TO TAG OUT HE BEATS THE THROW, BYU GAMBLES AND IT BENEFITS THE UTES WHOA ARE NOW DOUBLING UP 4-2 I THINK THAT’S A GOOD CALL.>>Gary: YEAH, BY THE TIME THE TAG IS MADE, WATCH THE FOOT. WITH A BANG-BANG PLAY, BUT IT IS RIGHT ON IT, GOT A GREAT VIEW, THE HOME PLATE UMPIRE, THE JUST BARELY BREADS THAT THROW. SO A NICE PLAY BY SUH, GOOD RELIEF, AND A GOOD THROW, AND THE TAG IS JUST A LITTLE BIT LATE.>>Spencer: SMALL BALL PAYS OFF FOR UTAH, AND A BUNT RBI. FOR DOMINANT, A HIT AND RUNNER IS NAME OWE AND THAT WILL BE ANOTHER BASE HIT. IT BOUNCES PAST, AND THEY HAVE TO CHANGE DIRECTION, THAT WILL DRIVE IN TWO MORE RUNS AND UTAH TAKES A 6-2 LEAD. MATT RICHARDSON THE ONE THAT DELIVERED IT. SO ON CUE AS WE DISCUSS, THE 7-8-9 BATTERS BACK TO BACK RBI’S. BIOPHORS CALYNN THAT THAT BUNTED AND RICHARDSON WHO JUST DRIVES IN TWO INTO THE GAP IN RIGHT CENTER. AND THAT BALL CALLS THEM A BIT OF TROUBLE. THAT WAS ONE OF THOSE HITS THAT YOU THOUGHT MAYBE THEY HAD A SHOT AT. MADE A GOOD EFFORT BUT IT BOUNCES RIGHT IN FRONT OF THEM AND BOUNCED OVER HIS GLOVE. THEY TAKE AN EXTRA PATE THERE, SO UTAH FOUR RUNS ON THE BOARD HERE. THE TOP OF THE FIFTH AND THAT WILL BE ALL FOR BRENT PARKINSON.>>Spencer: SO THEY HEAD TO THE DUGOUT. BYU NOW TRAILING BY FOUR RUNS. 6-2 AND INTO THE GAME COME ALEX PERRONE. TRYING TO CALM THINGS DOWN FOR BYU. WHILE THEY WARM UP FOR BYU. AND REMIND YOU TO CHECK OUT A RACE UNLIKE ANY OTHER ON BYU-TV. FOUR DIFFERENT TEAMS COMPETING FOR A $50,000 GRAND PRIZE. AND THEY TAKE A TEN DAY JOURNEY ACROSS THE COUNTRY. WE CALL IT RELATIVE RACE, YOU CAN WATCH AN ALL NEW EPISODE THIS SUNDAY AT FIVE CAN EASTERN ON BYU-TV. TONIGHT OUR BASEBALL BROADCAST BEING SHOWN STATEWIDE ON K.B.Y.U. AND STREAMED WORLDWIDE ON YOU DEW.COM. GAME NUMBER THREE OF FOUR BETWEEN UTAH AND BYU. AND THE UTES FEELING AWFULLY GOOD ABOUT WHERE THEY ARE IN THE FIFTH INNING. FOUR RUNS ACROSS, ONE DOWN, AND MATT RICHARDSON THE MAN WHO JUST DROVE IN TWO, IS STAYLY ON SECOND.>>Gary: NOW THEY ARE LOOKING FOR ALEX TO PUT OUT THE FIRE. 6’2″, 175-POUND JUNIOR, WENT TO BISHOP HIGH SCHOOL. IN LAS VEGAS AND THE COLLEGE OF SOUTHERN IDAHO. ORIGINALLY SIGNED WITH PEPPERDINE, BUT THEN WENT TO SOUTHERN IDAHO, AND CAME HERE TO BYU. ONCE PERRONE IS READY TO GO, WILL BE THE CATCHER SHEA KRAMER. HAS THE RIGHT ARM WARM AND READY TO ROLL. TAKE ON THE BATTER FOR THE UTES. AND THE FIRST PITCH STRIKE, AND THE FOURTH PITCHER TONIGHT FROM BYU. COUG FARES STARTED BO BURRUP, WHO LASTED ONE INNING. FOLLOWED BY KENDALL MOTES. WE JUST SAW RETT LEAVE THE GAME, AND NOW PERRONE. THE 0-1 WITH RICHARDSON ON SECOND, OUTSIDE FOR A BALL. SO FASHION THE DAY, SHEA KRAMER. POPPED UP TO THE SECOND BASEMAN IN THE SECOND AND STRUCK OUT IN THE FOURTH. SO ZERO FOR TWO TONIGHT. A BALL WITH A STRIKE AND AN OUT. AND HE WILL STEP OFF THE BACK SIDE OF THE PITCHER’S RUBBER. THAT TIME YOU SAW THE STRENGTH. HE IS DEEP IN THE HOLE, HE BACK HANDS THAT AND COMES UP THROWING. HE HAS BEEN CLOCKED AT 93 FROM HIS SHORT STOP POSITION TO BASE. TRYING TO ADD TO A LEAD. THE UNITS ENTER THE TOP OF THE FIFTH, TIED AT 2, AND HAD A HAY DAY AGAINST RETT PARKINSON DRIVING HIM OUT OF THE GAME. WITH NINE COMBINED HITS. TO PRODUCE THOSE SIX RUNS AND PERRONE AND ONE AND ONE. UTAH’S BEST HITTER, SEARCHING FOR HIS FIRST HIT HAS A FOUR GAME HIT STREAK CURRENTLY ROLLING. AND THE STRIKE OUT AND A COUPLE OF FLY OUTS. AND A FOOD WEIGHT ON THAT CURVE BALL WHO WILL DRIVE IN A RUN. THE INNING IN THE FIFTH, FIVE RUNS. FOR THE UTES. TO MAKE IT 7-2. THAT’S WHERE YOU SEE THEY ARE SUCH A GOOD HITTER, OUTSIDE CORNER, TAKES IT TO THE OPPOSITE FIELD HE LEADS THE TEAM WITH 15 DOUBLES. HE IS UP IN THE TOP 10 NATIONALLY WITH DOUBLES PER FAME, AND HE JUST HAS GREAT SPEED HE GOES THE OPPOSITE FIELD HE WILL END UP IN SECOND FOR THIRD. 16 FOR JUNIOR ON THE SEASON, HE IS THE MAN ON SECOND, TWO OUTS. [STRIKE FOR THREE. HITS FOR UTAH. LOOKING FOR NUMBER 11, AND THEY HAVE IT. CHANDLER ANDERSON NOW THREE FOR FOUR, KELSEY JR. SCORES 8-2 UTAH, AND THE UTES HAVE ABSOLUTELY BLOWN THIS GAME OPEN IN THE FIFTH INNING.>>Gary: THAT WILL BE ALL FOR PERRONE. BUT JUST EVERY HITTER, IT’S BEEN HARD HITS THE ONES OUT TO THE GAP IN LEFT CENTER, THE DOUBLE THAT ONE TO RIGHT FIELD BY RICHARDSON, THIS ONE RIGHT HERE, LINE SHOT RIGHT ON THE MONEY BY ANDERSON. FOR ANOTHER RUN BATTED IN. THEY JUST COME ALIVE HERE, EIGHT RUNS WITH 11 HITS AND ONLY IN THE TOP OF THE FIFTH INNING. LOOKING FOR SIGNS THAT SHOW SIGNS THAT HE IS ABLE TO COME UP AND TAKE RESPONSIBILITY AND GET INTO THAT ROTATION, AND BE A PART OF THE PITCHING STAFF THAT MAKE AS DIFFERENCE NOW ALL IS WELL IN THE DUGOUT ENJOYING A SIX RUN ARE LEAD ON THE ROAD, IN FRONT OF A CROWD OF AN ESTIMATED 3,000, WE WILL GET AN OFFICIAL NUMBER FOR YOU IN A BIT. AND THE UTES LOOKING STRONG TO BREAK THEIR SIX FAME LOSING STREAK ON THE SEASON. IF YOU ARE JUST JOINING US, AN EXPLOSIVE FIFTH INNING FOR THE UTES. ERICK MIGUELLESS, DRIVING IN TOM, BACK TO BACK DOUBLES. AND THEN LAYS DOWN THE BUNT. THE COUGARS OPT TO GO HOME, BUT THEY CAN’T GET McGELLIES, EVERYBODY IS SAFE. THAT WILL BRING UP MATT RICHARDSON THAT WILL DOUBLE, AND DRAW IN TWO MORE RUNS. KRAMER PUT UP THE SECOND OUT FOR UTAH, AND THEN DESHON JR. AND CHANDLER ANDERSON DELIVER BACK TO BACK BASE HITS. TO MAKE IT 8-2. KENNY SCIENCE OVER TO FIRST BASE, CHASING CHANDLER ANDERSON BACK TO THE BAG AND AGAIN OUR GAME SUMMARY. DESERET FIRST YOUR VALUES TIME LINE, AND YOUR FINANCIAL FUTURE LONG ROAD, AND BIG HILL TO CLIMB FOR BYU ON THEIR HOME FIELD. THE GOOD NEWS IS YOU WILL HAVE FIVE MORE AT-BATS AND UTAH PITCHING STAFF HAS ARRANGED GIVING UP OVER 11 PER GAME, IN THE LAST SIX GAMES SO THE OPPOSING TEAMS ARE REALLY HIT THE PITCHING STAFF HARD. AND THAT’S KIND OF BEEN THE WEAKNESS OF UTAH SO FAR IN THE PAC 12, THE PITCHING STAFF HASN’T BEEN ABLE TO HOLD DOWN THE OPPOSING TEAM. SO BYU HAS FIVE MORE BATS AND JUST SOMETHING TELLS ME IN THIS SERIES IT WILL END UP GETTING CLOSE AGAIN.>>WE SHOULD REMIND, EVERYBODY BYU HAS A 6-1 LEAD. IN THIS SEASON SERIES. ONLY TO GIVE UP FOUR RUNS TIE THINGS AT 6, AND THEN WIN ON A WILD PITCH, AND AN EXTRA INNINGS.>>ONE BALL ONE STRIKE. TO OLIVER DUN THE NUMBER THREE BATTER FOR UTAH, SIGNED. IN THERE FOR STRIKE TWO AT 88 MILES PER HOUR ON THE FAST BALL.>>Gary: BYU PLAYED AT UTAH, UTAH SCORED THE WINNING RUN. WITH THE BASES LOADED ON THE WALK. I HAVE A FEELING WE WILL SEE MORE OF IT AS WE GO ON WITH THIS GAME.>>Spencer: GOOD PITCH FROM SCIENCE CLAWSON, A PUT OUT THROW DOWN TO FIRST BASE, AND A STRIKE OUT FOR KENNY. THE COUGARS BRING THE TOP OF THE FIFTH TO A MERCIFUL END. 8-2 UTAH, FOR SIX RUNS. BYU BASEBALL IS BROUGHT TO YOU IN PART BY FOOT INSURANCE. BEAUTIFUL NIGHT AND EVEN PRETTIER SCENE ON THE SCOREBOARD IF YOU ARE A UTAH FAN 8-2, LEAD OVER BYU GOING INTO THE BOTTOM OF THE FIRST, SIX RUNS FOR THE UTES. IN THAT TOP HALF OF THE FIFTH. EVERYBODY SPENCER CERTAINLY SURPRISED WITH THE WAY THE TOP OF THE FIFTH WENT WITH THE SIX RUNS BUT AT THAT POINT IT WAS GETTING OUT OF THAT INNING SO THAT BYU COULD START ITS COME BACK ONCE THE INNING WAS OVER EVERYBODY IN THE DUG OUT WAS CHEERING EACH OTHER ON, SAYING IT IS TIME TO CHIP AWAY, AND AS YOU MENTIONED BE EVER THE BREAK, THESE GAMES HAVE A WAY OF BECOMING CLOSE, EVEN ONE TEAM HAS A LEAD SO THEY KNOW THEY WILL BE OPPORTUNITIES. AND THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT JUST TAKING ADVANTAGE OF THOSE.>>Spencer: ALL RIGHT, WE WILL SEE A VERY ENTERTAINING AND OFF STRANGE SERIES DELIVERED SOME MORE UNPREDICTABLE RESULTS HERE BYU HOPING FOR THAT SCENARIO. UTAH WILL NOW TWO TO THEIR PITCHER, STANDING FOR SPENCER KEVIN. WITH THE 4.95 EARNED RUN AVERAGE, HE HAS PITCHED 20 INNINGS, 17 WALKS AND YOU MENTIONED UTAH’S PITCHING STAFF IN THEIR STRUGGLES OVER THIS CURRENT SIX GAME LOSING STREAK, I DO WANT TO ADD ONE SIDE NOTE TO THAT, THEY WERE TAKING ON THE CURRENTLY 9TH RANKED UCLA PRUNES IN THREE OF THOSE FAMES AND A PRETTY SOLID ARIZONA STATE SQUAD ON THE ROAD AS WELL. SO IT HAS NOT BEEN EASY TREK THROUGH A LOADED PACK 12, AND AFTER BYU THEY WILL HOST ARIZONA FOR THREE, BEFORE HOSTING NUMBER ONE RANKED STANFORD IN SALT LAKE CITY FOR A THREE GAME SERIES.>>Gary: THERE’S NO EASY GAME IN THE PAC 12, AND AGAINST UCLA, THEY GAVE UP 16, SIX AND 12 AND AGAINST ARIZONA STATE, THEY GAVE OFF LOT OF RUNS AND SPENCER KEVIN JOHNSON HERE, HE IS COMING IN TO TRY TO KEEP BYU FROM RESPONDING AND GETTING BACK INTO THIS GAME. THE SOPHOMORE, 6’1″, 21-POUND, THE LOCAL PROS DUCT OUT OF SYRACUSE HIGH SCHOOL. HE MADE HIS DEBUT LAST YEAR, IN 2017 AGAINST BYU, AND DID NOT ALLOW A HIT OVER TWO SHUT OUT INNINGS AND HAD TWO STRIKE OUTS IN MARCH 28 A YEAR AGO FROM TODAY.>>Spencer: THE 20 INNINGS HE HAS PITCHED HAVE BEEN SPREAD ACROSS 13 APPEARANCES HOLING HIS APPEARANCE TO THAT BATTING AVERAGE. HAS A ONE BALL AND TWO STRIKES IN THE BOTTOM TO ANDERSON, AND YOU CAN SEE HIS FAST BALL VELOCITY HIT RIGHT AROUND 90 TO 92. THAT ONE AND FOULED OFF BY ANDERSON TO STAY AT 1 AND 2.>>Gary: AND THAT LAST PITCH YOU ARE RIGHT ON THERE, IT WAS 91 MILES PER HOUR. THERE JOHNSON WORKING FROM THE STRETCH. AND THAT IS HIGH FOR BALL 2. BRANDON ON THE DAY FLEW TO CENTER FIELD. ALMOST A HOME RUN HIS FIRST AT BAT, CAUGHT AT THEN WAYING TRACK OUT THERE BY PIERCY. AND HE GROUNDED TO SECOND. IN THE SECOND INNING. ANDERSON TAKES BALL THREE HIGH. FULL COUNT TO LEAD OFF BATTER FOR BYU ANDERSON BEING VERY PATIENT AT THE PLATE THERE, THEY NEED — THEY DON’T NEED A SIX RUN HOME RUN, YOU JUST NEED TO CHIP AWAY LIKE YOU TALKED ABOUT EARLIER, ONE OR TWO HERE OR THERE, AND TRY TO GET BACK INTO THE GAME.>>Spencer: THE LEAD OFF MAN FOR BYU, ANDERSON BOTH IN THE GAME AND IN THE INNING GOES DOWN ON STRIKES. ADVANTAGE JOHNSON. WITHIN DOWN IN THE BOTTOM OF THE 50.>>Gary: A REALLY GOOD PITCH THIS TIME. DOWN, OUTSIDE PART OF THE PLATE. 90 MILES PER HOUR. A LITTLE MOVEMENT ON IT. REALLY GOOD PITCH. THERE THAT WILL BRING UP DANIEL SCHNEEMANN. WALKING HIS FIRST AT-BAT. ZERO FOR ONE, WE PULL THAT DOWN THE FIRST BASE LINE. NO TROUBLE AS HE SCOOPS THAT UP AND BEATS SCHNEEMANN TO THE BAG FOR OUT NUMBER TWO. KEITH TOPP WILL TRY TO EXTEND THE INNING HERE IN THE FIFTH, WITH TWO OUTS. JOHNSON HAS TAKEN CARE OF ANDERSON ON THE STRIKE OUT, AND SCHNEEMANN ON THE GROUND OUT. A 2-2 GAME AFTER FOUR COMPLETE INNINGS. AND THEN UTAH ERUPTING FOR SIX RUNS IN THE TOP OF THE FIFTH. MAKING IT 8-2, JOHNSON WITH THAT TIED DELIVERY ON THE FAST BALL, LOW FOR BALL 1. KRINGLEN CAME INTO THIS GAME WITH A TWO MEAN NINE. THE CENTER IN THE FIRST, GOT A BASE HIT UP THE MIDDLE TO PUT THE AVERAGE OVER 300. THERE THIS TIME A STRIKE AND ANOTHER FAST BALL FROM JOHNSON ON THE OUTSIDE CORNER, 1 AND 1. TONIGHT’S ATTENDANCE 265. AT MILLER PARK ON THE BASEBALL SIDE. THAT IS A TOP TEN ATTENDANCE ALL TIME. RAMPING NUMBER MEAN. KRINGLEN. PULLS THAT ON THE GROUND INTO FULL TERRITORY. THE BASES ARE EMPTY, TWO OUTS. BYU LOOKING FOR SOME TYPE OF SPARK OFFENSIVELY. IT HAS BEEN A STRUGGLE FOR THE COUGARS. AS THEY HAVE DROPPED THREE OF THE LAST FOUR, AND IN SO DOING, HAVE MANAGED IN THE LOSSES THREE RUNS, FOUR RUNS AND ONE RUN. TWO HERE TONIGHT. REACHES FOR THAT BALL, IT IS SLICING FOUL AND THE COUNT STAYED AT ONE AND TWO. THERE THE GUY THAT HAS BEEN DEALING WITH HAMSTRING ISSUES, SEEMS TO BE BACK TO MOSTLY HIS REGULAR SELF-IN LEFT FIELD. HE WAS PUT IN THE DESIGNATED BATTER POSITION. WHILE HE WAS TRYING TO OVERCOME THE HAMSTRING SITUATION. SO MIKE LITTLEWOOD WILL TAKE ANY BREAK HE CAN GET. ESPECIALLY FROM AN EXPERIENCED BATTER LIKE KRINGLEN. WHO WAS THAT NATURAL SPARK IN SO MANY WAYS IN THE WAY HE CARRIED HIMSELF, TWO BALLS TWO STRIKES TWO OUTS. BASES EMHI. IN THE BOTTOM OF THE FIFTH. AND A BLOW BY FAST BALL FROM JOHNSON. THAT ONE HITS 92 ON THE RADAR GUN. 1-2-3 INNING FOR THE UTES. AND AWAY IN TOWARDS THE DUGOUT. TAKE A SEAT WE WILL GO TO THE 6TH.>>HOLDING ON TO A 6-RUN LEAD, THANKS TO A 6-RUN FIFTH INNING. ON THE UTES. WHO ARE NINE AND 28 ON THE SEASON. JUST BY WASHINGTON STATE FOR LAST PLACE IN THE PAC 12, BUT THESE ARE THE TYPES OF GAMES, THESE RIVALRY CONTESTS THAT CAN SPARK A TEAM EMOTIONALLY, AND THE UTES CAN USE THAT RIGHT NOW. AND THEY ARE GOING TO BE DEEPING WITH ARIZONA AND NUMBER ONE RANKED STANFORD OVER THE NEXT FEW WEEKS. BYU ALSO HAS A ONE OFF SCENARIO AGAINST STANFORD, THEY WILL PLAY IN PAULO ALTO, LATER THIS SEASON. AND NOT A GREAT START TO OPEN UP THE TOP OF THE 6TH, PITCHING FOR BYU, 3-0 COUNT. TO TOM MAKE IT FOUR CONSECUTIVE BALLS AND TOMORROW MAKES HIS WAY TO FIRST BASE. STATISTICALLY SPEAKING WHEN YOU WALK THE LEAD OFF BATTER, MORE OFTEN THAN NOT THE GUY WILL FIND A WAY TO SCORE.>>Gary: YEAH, AND YOU LOOK AT THE COACH, IF THERE WAS ONE THING THAT WOULD MAKE IT MADDER THAN ANYTHING EL, IS FOR A PITCH TORE WALK THE LEAD OFF HITTER, AND FOR ANY MANAGER. ERICK THE DESIGNATED HITTER TAKES THE STRIKE AND SIGN. SO KENNY FINDING HIS OWN FOR BYU. AFTER FOUR CONSECUTIVE BALLS. MIGUELLESS DROVE IN A RUN, AND THERE IS MORE PROBLEMS. AS THAT PITCH IS OFF LINE, HE CROSSES UP THE CATCHER, CLAWSON. ALLOWING TOM TO TAKE SECOND BASE AND GET INTO SCORING POSITION WITH NO OUTS IN THE 6TH.>>Gary: BOY, THAT PITCH HIT ABOUT FIVE PETE IN FRONT OF HOME PLATE, SO NOT MUCH OF A CHANCE THAT TIME NOT MUCH YOU CAN DO ABOUT THAT. JUST LIKE THAT, RYKKER TOM ON SECOND. MIGUELLESS FROM THE LEFT SIDE. FACING THE LEFT-HANDED KENNY SCIENCE. MIGUEL IS ON THE GROUND. OVER TO SUH AT FIRST, TOM WILL ADVANCE TO THIRD BASE ON THE PLAY ALL PUT IN PLAY, AND THE COACH AT UTAH WILL TAKE THAT FROM HIS D.H. BRAYDEN COMES TO THE PLATE.>>Gary: THAT’S NOT THE CONVENTIONAL WAY TO GET THE RUNNER FROM SECOND TO THIRD.>>Spencer: COMING ONE A KEY PLAY FOR BYU, WITH THE INFIELD IN, HE HAD TO REACH BACK TO MAKE THE STOP, LOOK DOWN THE RUNNER, THIRD, AND THEN DELIVER THE THROW. A GOOD JUMP ON THE BALL, VERY GOOD FEET A GOOD JUMP ON THAT AND DOVE. EXTENDING HIS BODY AND SAVE THE RUN.>>Spencer: AND NOW WITH TWO OUTS. BYU PITCHERS A LITTLE MORE COMFORTABLE AS HE FACES DOMINICK. STRIKE ONE SWINGS TO MAKE THE COUNT 1-1. UTAH EIGHT FOR 19 AS A TEAM WITH RUNNERS ON BASE. AND SEVEN FOR 17 WITH RUNNERS IN SCORING POSITION, BOTH OF THEM AVERAGES OVER 400 IN TONIGHT’S GAME.>>Gary: THAT’S PRETTY IMPRESSIVE. THEY WENT AGAINST UCLA, THEY SCORE 3-4-4. AGAINST ARIZONA STATE THEY SCORED 4-4-8, BUT THE PITCHING COULDN’T HOLD THEM DOWN.>>Spencer: TAKE AS PITCH LOW FOR BALL 2 TOM IS STILL ON THIRD, TRYING TO FETE OUT OF THIS INNING. UP INTO THE SCREEN. AND THE COUNT STAYS AT 2 AND 2. TOM BLUFFS, A POTENTIAL STEAL HOME, AND SEENS IN THERE HERE THEY GO. FOULED BACK ONCE AGAIN.>>Gary: A GOOD CHANGE UP THAT TIME, BUT HE GOT IT UP JUST A LITTLE BIT IN THE ZONE, AND BATTLES — FOULS IT OFF. THE COUNT REMAINS 3-2.>>Spencer: FULL COUNT RUNNER ON THIRD, UTAH TRYING TO ADD TO IT A GOOD JOB TO STAY ALIVE AGAINST KEN NICENESS. HE WAITS ON THE CURVE BALL, AND ANOTHER FOULED OFF PITCH.>>Gary: WE HAVE A GOOD DUEL GOING ON HERE, BETWEEN SCIENCE. A MAJOR LEAGUE RECORD WAS SET THE OTHER DAY, BY THEIR HITTER AT 22 PITCHES IN ORDER TO GET HIM OUT, HE FINALLY FLEW OUT BUT 22 IN THE COUNT.>>Spencer: BRANDON BELT WAS THE BATTER, AND A WALK IS EARNED BY DOMINICK. AFTER A LENGTHY AT BAT AGAINST SCIENCE. THAT’S TOUGH WHEN YOU GO TO 3-2, AND 4 FOUL BALLS OUT THERE ON REALLY GOOD PITCHES AND THEN YOU LOSE THEM, IT JUST GETS FRUSTRATING. YOU THINK GEES I JUST THREW 11 AND 12, AND THEY WEREN’T ALL BAD, AND THEN I END UP WALKING THE GUY MR. WITH 21 FOUL BALLS IT COSTS THE LOS ANGELES ANGELS OF ANAHEIM OVER $100 IN BASEBALLS BECAUSE OF WHAT BRANDON DID. AND NOW THE COUGARS TRYING TO WORK A PICKLE SITUATION. AND THEY TRY TO TAKE SECOND AND VICIOUSLY TRIED TO GO HOME AND A HEADS UP PLAY TO GO TO HIS CATCHER, AND UNORTHODOX ENDING TO THE TOP OF THE 6TH, BUT BYU PREVENTS A FURTHER RUN, THEY STAY WITHIN 6 RUNS AT 8-2, GOING TO THE BOTTOM OF THE 6TH.>>Spencer: BYU BASEBALL ON BYU-TV IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY EMERGENCY ESSENTIALS. 30 YEARS OF HELPING PEOPLE PREPARE. THE BYU STORE, THE OFFICIAL OUTFITTER OF BYU FANS JEFF WHERE. AND BY DEPOSITION THEY ARE LAW.COM, FOR HELP WHEN YOU NEED IT MOST.>>Spencer: THE UTAH UTES WITH THE 6-RUN ADVANTAGE, THEY ARE 12 OUTS AWAY FROM ENDING THEIR LOSING STREAK, AND DOING SO AGAINST THEIR ARCH RIVALS IN PROVO, UTAH. GREAT TO HAVE YOU WITH US, WHETHER YOU ARE WATCHING ON K, BEYU OR STREAMING IT ON BYU-TV SPORTS. COMPARE SHEIDE, I AM SPENCER LINTON, A GREAT NIGHT FOR NCAA BASEBALL. TEMPERATURES IN THE MID 60’S. TOP 10 CROWD WITH OVER 2600, TAKE A LOOK T INSIDE THE BYU DUGOUT, AND THE PITCHER. IT LOOKS LIKE REASONABLE STRIKING DISTANCE, GIVEN THE HISTORY, BUT STILL A SIX RUN ADVANTAGE, IS A HEFTY MOUNTAIN TO CLIMB FOR BYU. THE COACH HAS DONE A COUPLE OF THINGS HERE, TRYING TO GET THEM DOING, AND THAT WORKED. HE IS TRIED TO DOUBLE STEAL HERE, GET THE RUNNER CAUGHT, AND TRY TO GET THE RUNNER FROM THIRD HOME, AND THAT ALMOST WORK SOD HE IS DOING A COUPLE OF CREATIVE THINGS TO TRY THE MANUFACTURE RUNS AND IT’S BEEN VERY SUCCESSFUL, ATE-2 HERE.>>Spencer: UTAH HAS THROWN OUT THREE DIFFERENT PITCHERS ON THE MOUND. THE LATEST IS JOHNSON, WHO WAS THROWING HEAT IN THE BOTTOM OF THE FIFTH, INCLUDING A 92 MILE-AN-HOUR FAST BALL TO FINISH ONE A STRIKE OUT. THE NUMBER FOUR BATTER, BROCK HAIL, IN HIS CLEAN UP POSITION. ZERO FOR ONE TONIGHT, DID REACH ON A FIELDER’S CHOICE, IN THE THIRD INNING, LOOKING FOR A BASE HIT HERE AND THAT BALL JUST SLIPPED OUT OF THE HANDS OF JOHNSON, AND SAILS EVERYBODY.>>BROCK HAIL WAS HIT BY A PITCH, AND THAT PITCH COULDN’T HIT HIM, IT WAS SO FAR TO THE RIGHT IT JUST SLIPS OUT, SOMETIMES THAT HAPPENS. YOU CAN JUST SEE KEVIN JOHNSON WITH HIS HANDS ON HIS PANTS AND THAT BALL JUST SLIPS OUT.>>Spencer: JUST A BIT OUTSIDE. ONE BALL AND TWO STRIKES TO BROCK HAIL. THAT’S JOHNSON, AND HALE REACHES DOWN LOW TO POP THAT ONE OUT OF PLAY AND STAY ALIVE. THEY ARE TRYING TO WORK BROCK HAIL AWAY, THEY SAW THE PITCHER LAST TIME, PIERCE GOT AHEAD WITH TWO STRIKES ON THE OUTSIDE CORP.ER, AND BROCK HALE JUST DID A PROTECTOR SWING, AND SLOWLY GROUND IT TO FIST.>>Spencer: ANOTHER 1-2 PITCH, HALE GOES DOWN ON STRIKES AND AGAIN, THAT LOW 90’S FAST BALL FROM S.K. JOHNSON. HAS BEEN BURNING PAST THE HEART OF THE LINE-UP FOR BYU. AS HE TAKES CARE OF STRIKES AND HALE SWINGING. AND THAT BALL JUST RIGHT DOWN THE MIDDLE. RIGHT ABOUT BELT HIGH. THAT SHOWS YOU WHEN YOU HAVE THAT VELOCITY, SOMETIMES YOU CAN GET AWAY WITH BAD PITCHES. HALE SWINGS UNDERNEATH THE HIGH CHEESE FROM JOHNSON. ONE DOWN, NATE HAS BEEN THE MOST PRODUCTIVE BATTER FOR BYU TONIGHT. AS YOU TAKE BALL ONE LOW.>>Gary: 2 FOR 2 WITH A COUPLE OF SINGLES AND A RUN BATTED IN IN THE FIRST INNING. HE HAS TWO OF BYU’S FIVE HITS. THERE AND THE FAST BALL CONTINUES TO WORK WELL FOR S.K. CAN JOHNSON.>>Gary: YOU KNOW WHAT IS MOVING IS WORKING WELL. AND THESE ARE GOOD HITTERS, HE IS A VERY GOOD HITTER. HE IS A GOOD HITTER AND THEY ARE SWINGING AND MISSING AT 92 MILE-AN-HOUR FAST BALLS.>>Spencer: TO THE THIRD BASEMAN, AND AGAIN BEHIND THE PITCH FROM SPENCER KEVIN JOHNSON, NOT TO BE CONFUSED WITH KEVIN JOHNSON. BECAUSE THE UTES FEATURE BOTH OF THOSE NAMES ON THEIR PITCHING STAFF. THERE’S SPENCER KEVIN JOHNSON AND KEVIN JOHNSON.>>Gary: YEAH, THEY KIND OF NICKNAME IT SPENCER KEVIN.>>Spencer: 1-2, DOWN ON STRIKES. THE FAST BALL IS HIGH IN THE ZONE, IS TAKING CARE OF THREE CONSECUTIVE BYU BATTERS. KRINGLEN, HALE, AND NOW FAVERO. AND THAT WILL BE BRIAN PLAYING WITH TWO DOWN IN THE BOTTOM OF THE 6TH.>>THAT TIME HE IS OUT OF THE ZONE, CHASING THE BALL THAT IS UP AROUND THE SHOULDERS. TO STRIKE OUT, BUT BOY IT LOOKS FOOD WHEN IT IS COMING IN BUT THE BALL IS TAILING AND JUST KIND OF GETTING A LOT OF MOVEMENT THERE. FOR THESE BYU HITTERS JOHNSON HAS FACED FIVE BYU BATTERS. THE STRUCK OUT FOUR OF THEM. THE ONLY PERSON TO PUT A BALL IN PLAY, AND THAT WAS A GROUND OUT. NOW BRIAN SUH STAIRS AT STRIKE ONE. HOW IS THAT FOR EFFICIENCY.>>Spencer: YOU PITCH AN INNING AND TWO, AND STRUCK OUT FOUR BATTERS.>>Gary: YEAH THAT’S VERY IMPRESSIVE, AND WE ARE LOOKING AT THAT FAST BALL, BOY, HE HAS GAD MOVEMENT, AND VELOCITY, AND LOCATION. SUH, FOULED BACK RIGHT SIDE INTO THE THEME, 1-2. HE HAS FACED THE MEAT OF THE ORDER. FIRST INNING HE HAD ANDERSON, SCHNEEMANN, AND CRINGLE. AND THIS INNING HE HAS HALE, FAVERO, AND SUH WHO IS FOUR, FIVE, AND SIX, SO HE HAS FACED THE MEAT OF BYU’S ODDERRER AND STRUCK OUT FOUR OUT OF FIVE OF THEM.>>Spencer: THE STEER-2 PITCH. HIGH AND INSIDE BALL 1. BATTING 315. BALL TWO IS LOW AND OUTSIDE. AND THE COUNT IS NOW TWO AND TWO. AND SUH PATIENTLY, IS NOW WORKED IT TO A FULL COUNT. GWEN JOHNSON.>>Gary: THE ONLY THING THEY HAVEN’T BEEN ABLE TO DO REALLY IS GET THAT CURVE BALL OVER. HE JUST HASN’T BEEN ABLE TO BREAK IT OFF ENOUGH IT HAS BEEN STAYING UP TOO HIGH.>>Spencer: BRIAN SUH WHO HIS COACH CALLED A SUPER ATHLETE CAN DUNK A BASKETBALL, 360 HIS NUMBERS SHOW OBVIOUS POWER, WITH THE FOUR HOME RUNS I MENTIONED HE HAS ON THE SEASON. AND HE IS A KID THAT HAS DEALT WITH INTERESTING HEALTH CHALLENGES. HE HAS HAD FOUR OR FIVE SEIZURES SINCE HE HAS BEEN AT BYU, BUT IS WELL ENOUGH THAT HE WILL TELL HIS COACHES I AM NOT RIGHT, YOU NEED TO PULL ME OUT.>>Gary: WHY YOU DON’T SEE HIM PLAY IN DOUBLE HEADERS TOO OFTEN, BUT HE DID IT EARLIER THIS YEAR, AT HOME.>>Spencer: SPENCER KEVIN JOHNSON HAS FACED SIX BYU BATTERS AND STRUCK OUT 5. UTAH REMAINS IN CHARGE,>>Spencer: WE ENTER THE 7TH INNING, THE UTES OF UTAH TRYING TO SNAP THEIR LOSING STREAK. IN GOOD POSITION TO DO SO, THE HEAD COACH HAS TO BE FEELING GOOD, HE IS WITH JASON SHEPHARD.>>Gary: ALL RIGHT, COACH, SOME MISSED OPPORTUNITIES EARLY, BUT IT CHANGED IN THE FIFTH, WHAT WAS THE DIFFERENCE.>>WELL, WE GOT KEY HITS WHICH WE DIDN’T IN THE PAST, AND HE WAS DOING A GOOD JOB, I THINK STRUCK FIVE GUYS OUT IN A ROW, AND THEN THE BALL ELEVATED A LITTLE BIT, AND WE GOT TO HIM. HE COULD HAVE SCORED A LOT, BUT THEY GOT THOSE IN THE 40.>>YOU THROW THREE GUYS SO FAR, TWO EARNED RUNS WHAT HAVE BEEN YOUR IMPRESSIONS ON THE MOUND.>>THEY HAVE DONE A GOOD JOB, THROWING STRIKES. WE WILL THROW ONE MORE INNING, AND THEN START ANOTHER TWO OR THREE GUYS TO STAY IN THE GAME. SO HOPEFULLY WE WILL CONTINUE THROWING STRIKES AND GETTING OUTS.>>THESE GAMES HAVE A CRAZY WAY OF ENDING UP CLOSE, WHAT DO YOU EXPECT IN.>>NO DOUBT. IT IS GOING TO COME DOWN A LOT.>>THANK YOU.>>THANK YOU TO THE HEAD COACH OF UTAH.>>WELL, THE WAY THAT JOHNSON IS THROWING THE BALL, STRIKING OUT FIVE OF THE SIX HE HAS FACED, NOT SO SURE THIS WILL COME DOWN TO A WEIRD SCENARIO. BYU MEANWHILE TRYING TO STAY WITHIN STRIKING DISTANCE AS MATT LEADS OFF THE TOP OF THE 7TH, THE NUMBER EIGHT BATTER HE IS FOLLOWED THE TOP OF THE BATTER. BYU HAS IT OUT THERE, THEIR 6TH OF THE GAME, THAT’S BLAKE INNA WAY.>>Spencer: INOUYE HITS A SOFT GROUND BALL TO ANDERSON AT SECOND BASE. PLAY AT FIRST, ONE DOWN. PRETTY GOOD STRIKE OUT TO WALK RATIO. THE RECORD OF ONE AND THREE IN A 5.73 EARNED RUN AMPLE. TAKES CARE OF RICHARDSON AND WILL FACE THE PITCHER KRAMER PITCH NUMBER ONE IN THERE FOR A STRIKE. THE FAST BALL BEHIND THAT, 0-2. OUR SPONSOR TONIGHT, BRADY INDUSTRY, THE PROVIDER OF COMMERCIAL CLEANING SUPPLIES AND EQUIPMENT 0-2 COUNT NUMBER NINE BATTER, TOP OF THE 7TH WITH 1 OUT. WELL, THAT WAS A GOOD INTERVIEW THAT LAST INNING WITH THE COACH, AND IT IS KIND OF FUNNY TO HEAR, IT LOOKS LIKE THE GAME IS JUST GOING YOUR WAY IT IS 8-2. AND JUST KIND OF FUNNY TO HEAR THE COACH SAY YEAH, IT WILL GET CLOSE, YOU JUST DON’T HAVE A CONFIDENT LEVEL HERE. EVEN THOUGH THIS SEEMS TO BE GOING YOUR WAY, ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN AND IT USUALLY DOES.>>WITHOUT HESITATION, YEP, LIT COME DOWN TO THE LAST INNING.>>KRAMER SEARCHING FOR HIS FIRST HIT OF THE GAME. SEVEN OF THE NINE UTAH STARTERS. HAVE RECORDED AT LEAST ONE HIT, CHANDLER ANDERSON LEADING THE WAY WITH THREE HITS AND FOUR AT-BATS. ALL OF IT DUN TWO FOR FOUR, RYKKER 2 FOR 3. STRIKING AND LOOKING TO KRAMER WHO GOES TO ZERO AND FOUR ON THE NIGHT. AND THEY ARE TWO DOWN IN THE 7TH. ON THE OUTSIDE PART OF THE PLATE, AND ABOUT KNEE HIGH, JUST A TOUGH PITCH TO HIT. BUT YOU LOOK AT THE BOTTOM OF THE UTAH ORDER, SEVEN THROUGH NINE, AND THEIR PRODUCTION IS ONE FOR 11, SO THEY ARE JUST A LITTLE — THE TOP HALF OF THE ORDER IS FINE, BUT THE BOTTOM HALF THEY HAVE TO PLAY UP A BETTER AS YOU PLAY THE PACK 12 TEAMS. HITTING TO FIVE CONSECUTIVE GAMES. COVERING FIRST BASE, A PLAY THAT IS NOT EASY, MADE TO LOOK RELATIVELY ROUTINE. WE WILL GO TO THE BOTTOM OF THE 7TH. BYU GAME NUMBER 21 BETWEEN BYU AND UTAH, JUMPING OUT TO A 6-2 LEAD, BUT UTAH PUTS TOGETHER A FOUR RUN TOP OF THE 9TH INNING, TO FORCE EXTRA INNINGS AND THEN BYU CAPITALIZES ON A WILD PITCH, WALK OFF IN UNUSUAL FASHION THE UTES RESPONDED WITH A VICTORY IN SALT LAKE CITY, IN EARLY APRIL, A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO. AND NOW TO GAME THREE, UTAH IN CONTROL, 8-2 AS WE GO TO THE BOTTOM OF THE 7TH INNING. SPENCER KEVIN JOHNSON IS THROWING NASTY STUFF FROM THE MOUND. A STRIKE OUT, FIVE OF THEM. AND IS SHOWING NO SIGNING OF SLOWING DOWN.>>AND THE CRAZY THING ABOUT THAT, HE HASN’T BEEN ABLE TO GET THE CURVE BALL OVER. SO HE KNOWS IT IS COMING BUT THEY HAVE BEEN SO GOOD, AND WITH SUCH MOVEMENT, THAT THEY CAN’T HIT IT. HE WILL TRY AND HIT A HIT. HE IS LOOKING FOUL, AND THAT BALL WAS HIT RIGHT OUT OF THE PARK. BUT IN FOUL TERRITORY.>>Gary: YEAH, PUT CLAWSON TURNED ON THAT ONE, THAT WAS AN 89 MILE-AN-HOUR FAST BALL. HE HAS A QUICK BAT. ABOUT TEN FEET FOUL DOWN THE LINE. THERE KEMP JOHNSON IN THAT INTERVIEW, TRYING TO STRIKE OUT HIS 6TH BATTER, AND HAS A 0-2 COUNT, ON D.C. CLAWSON. OUTSIDE FOR A BALL.>>Gary: THERE’S THAT CHANGE UP HE JUST CAN’T GET IT OVER, BOY, HE CAN TURN ON THOSE, AND YOU MAKE A MISTAKE HERE, CLAWSON CAN GIVE ATE RIP AND KNOCK IT OUT OF THE PARK.>>Spencer: JOHNSON OUT OF THE COMFORT ZONE, AND A LONG STAIR DOWN HE IS READY FOR THE 1-2 PITCH. CLAWSON BATTING ON THE SEASON, HIS AVERAGE UP TO 273, WHEN HE HAS LET OFF, AS HE IS DOING HERE IN THE BOTTOM OF THE 7TH. AND CLAWSON DELIVERS DOWN THE LINE THAT WILL GO FOR A STAND UP DOUBLE, AND WILL THAT BE ENOUGH TO SPARK THE BYU OFFENSE TO TRY TO MAKE THINGS INTERESTING HERE IN WITH A LEAD OFF DOUBLE.>>Gary: YEAH, CLAWSON WAS ALL OVER IT. HE WAS SEEING THAT WELL, FIRST TIME UP, HE JUST KNOCKED IT OUT OF THE PARK, BUT LOOK AT THIS ONE. AND LOOK AT THAT QUICK PAT, THE MINOR DOWN THE RIGHT FIELD LINE, AND HE EASILY THROWS IN THE SECOND BASE WITH A LEAD OFF DOUBLE HERE. IN THE BOTTOM OF THE 7TH INNING.>>Spencer: KYLE DEE HAS THE DESIGNATED HITTER, 2 FOR 2. A DOUBLE OF SINGLES. AND TRYING TO REMAIN PERFECT AGAINST JOHNSON. WITH CLAWSON ON SECOND IN SCORING POSITION. HE GOES BACK TO THE FAST BALL, STRIKE ONE.>>Gary: HERE IS ANOTHER GUY THAT CAN LOSE NIT A HURRY. YOU COME IN THE ZONE, HE IS TWO FOR TWO ON THE NIGHT, SEEING THE BALL WELL, AND HE CAN KNOCK IT OUT TOO.>>Spencer: KYLE DEAN WITH HIS TWO HITS TODAY HAS TAKEN A SEASON AVERAGE FROM 200, UP TO 243, THEY ARE REALLY HOPE THIS GUY GETS GOING. ARE THE BYU COACHES AND HE TAKES BALL ONE LOW. CLAWSON ON SECOND, BAH TRYING TO CHIP INTO THE 6TH RUN LEAD IN THE DOUBLE NO OUTS, KYLE DEAN 2 FOR 2 ON HIS NIGHT, TAKES THE 1-1 PITCH. HIT WELL, YEASON BACK, THAT WILL HOP OFF THE WALL, HERE COMES CLAWSON AROUND THIRD, AND DEAN HAD A DOUBLE TO BYU HE IS 3 FOR 3, BACK TO BACK DOUBLES FOR THE COUGARS AND STACK ON 11 FOR BYU. I THOUGHT THAT MIGHT HAVE BEEN OUT OF HERE.>>Gary: BOY, I TELL YOU, THAT BALL IS HIT SO HARD. UP IN THE ZONE, AND HE REALLY RIPPED IT. RIGHT AT THE BASE OF THE WALL OUT THERE AT LEFT FIELD, NO CHANCE FOR CENTER FIELDER, TO CATCH UP WITH THAT AND THAT’S A DOUBLE FOR DEAN, THREE FOR THREE ON THE NIGHT. WITHAGE RBI, AND BYU HAS CUT THE LEAD TO 5 HERE. AND THAT WILL BE ALL. AND THAT WILL BE ALL. FINALLY, BYU SOLVED S.J. WITH A COUPLE OF BOMBS OUT TO THE OUTFIELD. BACK TO BACK DOUBLES FOR BYU, ONE RUN IN IN THE BOTTOM OF THE 7TH, TO MAKE A 5-1 LEAD. ED IN NUMBER NINE SPOT. AND PERNS WILL THANK JOSHUA.>>Gary: YEAH, THAT IS MIKE CRAWFORD, THE MOUND COACH. FOR UTAH. JOHNSON DOES GIVE UP THE BACK TO BACK DOUBLES. BUT HE WAS LIGHTS OUT IN THE FIRST TWO INNINGS HE PITCHED STRIKING OUT ANDERSON. TAKE A SEED, BROCK HAIL. NO, NATE, HE GOES DOWN SWINGING. BRIAN SUH. NO CHANCE BEEN FIVE STRIKE OUTS. FOR S.J., SPENCER KEVIN JOHNSON. AND HE WILL GIVE WAY. THE FOURTH PITCHER TONIGHT FOR THE UTAH UTES.>>Gary: 6’4″, 180-POUNDER, A JUNIOR OUT OF PUB LOW HIGH SCHOOL IN CALIFORNIA. LAST YEAR HE MADE 12 APPEARANCES IN RELIEF, THROWING 19 AND A THIRD INNINGS, HE HAD A 2-0 RECORD. THE RED SHIRTED 2000 AND 15. A GUY THAT THE JACK OF ALL TRADES FROM A PITCHING STANDPOINT FOR UTAH. GO THE DISTANCE AS A STARTER. COMING IN IN RELIEF HERE IN THE 7TH INNING. KYLE DEAN ON SECOND AFTER HIS RBI DOUBLE, DROVE IN ONE RUN FOR BYU, D.C. CLAWSON LEADING OFF THE 7TH WITH A DOUBLE. AND NOW PERNS WILL BE THE BATTER. A VERY BUSY WEEK OF BYU SPORTS AND YOU CAN WATCH IT ON BYU-TV. NOTABLY BYU WOMEN’S SOFTBALL. AS THEY ARE BACK ON THE AIR WAVES WITH AN INSTATE RIVALRY OF THEIR OWN. COVERAGE STARTS AT 8:00 EASTERN. THEN WE CAN FLIP OVER TO THE OTHER SIDE AND THAT IS ALL CAGAME.>>Gary: I LOVE WORKING WITH YOU SPENCE, AND THAT SOFTBALL TEAM THEY ARE SPECIAL. THEY JUST SEEM TO KNOW HOW TO PLAY AT THE RIGHT TIME, AND IF YOU HAVEN’T SEEN THEM PLAY COME OVER TOMORROW NIGHT, IT SHOULD BE A REALLY GOOD FAME, AND THE REST OF THIS WEEK, BOY, WE HAVE SAN DIEGO COMING IN, WE HAVE ST. MARY’S COMING IN, IT SHOULD BE A FUN WEEK. YOU MENTIONED THE SOFTBALL TEAM. AND IT IS DIFFICULT NOT TO TAKE FOR GRANTED WHAT THEY DO BECAUSE IT IS JUST THE NORM FOR THEM TO WIN THE CONFERENCE. AND THEY ARE IN THAT AUTO BID TO THE TOURNAMENT. BUT WE SHOULDN’T, STEP BACK AND WATCH HOW CONSISTLY GOOD THEY HAVE BEEN AND AGAIN THEY ARE THE HEAVY FAVORITES THIS YEAR TO WIN IT ALL AND MAKE ANOTHER TRIP TO THE TOURNAMENT. 301 ON THE SEASON. 11 RUNS BATTED IN. DELIVERS LOW.>>Gary: THE SITUATION HERE WHERE MITCH MCINTYRE LEADS THE TEAM. WITH A CURRENT SEVEN GAME HITTING STREAK, SO HE WILL GET ONE OPPORTUNITY HERE, AGAINST HIM. TO TRY TO EXTEND THAT STREAK. INTERCHANGEABLE AT CENTER FIELD. AND NOW MCINTYRE GOES LOW TO STAY ALIVE. STAY AT ONE BALL AND TWO STRIKES. BYU WITH ONE RUN ACROSS TO THE BOTTOM OF THE 7TH. BACK TO BACK DOUBLES TO LEAD THINGS OFF COURTESY OF DAVE CLAWSON AND KYLE DEAN.>>Gary: YOU TALK ABOUT SOFTBALL, MITCH’S MOTHER JILL WHITEHOUSE PLAYS SOFTBALL FOR BYU. MCINTYRE, CHECK SWING, DOWN THE LINE, HE DID NO GO AROUND. 2 AND 2. DEAN IS ON SECOND. 2-2, SWUNG ON AND MISSED. AND MCINTYRE IS RETIRED ON STRIKES. THERE’S A FAST BALL UP IN THE ZONE A LITTLE BIT JUST THREW ET RIGHT BY THEM, MITCH WAS LATE ON THAT.>>Spencer: THE FAST BALL UP IN THE ZONE. HAS BEEN A THORN IN THE SIDE FOR BYU BASEBALL TONIGHT, REGARDLESS OF THE PITCHER. IT HAS BEEN ALL TOO APPEALING AND NOT AN EFFECTIVE WAY TO HIT AGAINST THIS PITCHING STAFF. BEEN DEN ANDERSON THE BATTER. PUTS THAT ON THE GROUND, DEAN, REMAINING AT SECOND, THE THROW IS HIGH AND ANDERSON WILL BE SAVE. AS THEY ARE PULLED FROM THE PACK, AND A TOUGH BREAK. WHO GOT THE GROUND BALL THEY NEEDED, RICHARDSON THE SHOT STOP, PERHAPS TO THROW A BIT, KNOWING THE SPEED OF ANDERSON IS AN ISSUE AND THEY CATCH A BREAK.>>Spencer: YEAH, THAT’S JUST A SITUATION WHERE MATT MAKES AN EASY PICK UP AND TYPICALLY JUST MAKE AS NICE THROW OVER THERE, AND GET THE OUT. BUT SOMETIMES YOU TRY TO PUT EXTRA MUSTARD ON THE BALL, AND YOU RELEASE IT DIFFERENTLY, AND THE BALL FAILS ON YOU AND THAT’S WHAT HAPPENED THAT TIME.>>Gary: RUNNERS ON FIRST AND SECOND, DANIEL SCHNEEMANN IS THE BATTER. AND HE WILL TAKE A STRIKE. AT THE KNEES. DANIEL IS ZERO FOR TWO, HE WALKS IN THE FIRST, AND GROUNDED TO THIRD UNASSISTS IN THE THIRD AND FIFTH. GROUNDED TO FIST UNASSISTED. 0-1, SCHNEEMANN. DOWN THE LINE, AND IT IS 0-2. WITH 38 STRIKE OUTS AFTER TAKING CARE OF MITCH MCINTYRE. GOOD FOR SECOND MOST ON THIS STAFF, LOOKING FOR STRIKE OUT NUMBER 25, OUTSIDE BALL 1. OPPORTUNISTIC INNING, THEY HAVE ALREADY SCORED ONE TO MAKE IT A FIVE RUN GAME WITH THE UTES LEADING 8-3. AND RUNNERS ON FIRST AND SECOND FOR DANIEL WITH ONE DOWN. THE PREVIOUS PITCH WAS OUTSIDE, SO THEY ARE WORKING THE CORNERS WORKING IN AND OUT, AND JUST MISSING BUT SCHNEEMANN HAS A GOOD EYE UP FROM BATTLING THROUGH THIS AT-BAT.>>Spencer: KRINGLEN ON DECK. DEAN IS ON SECOND, ANDERSON ON FIST, SCHNEEMANN THE 2-2 TAKES STRIKE THREE AS HE PAINTS THEOUT SIDE CORNER.>>Gary: A CUT FAST BALL THAT TIME, JUST A PERFECT LOCATION WATCH THE MOVEMENT TO THE OUTSIDE CORNER, BOY, JUST A PITCHER’S PITCH RIGHT THERE, JUST COULDN’T REACH IT AND A LITTLE BIT OUTSIDE THE UTES CAN MINIMIZE THE DAMAGE HERE, THANKS TO CLUTCH PITCHING. BLOOPS ONE IN, ANDERSON BEING HELD UP AT THIRD, AND THE COUGARS ARE UP AT THIRD ACROSS, AND RUNNERS ON THE CORNERS AFTER KRINGLEN DRIVES IN A RUN. YOU CAN SEE KEATON STRAIGHTENING OUT HIS FINGERS. HE HAS ENOUGH TO PASS IT THERE. THAT JUST BLOOPS AND YOU THINK THE SECOND BASEMAN HAVE A CHANCE TO GET TO IT, BUT NO, AND WITH TWO OUTS EVERYBODY IS RUNNING SO THAT WILL BE A RUN BATTED IN HE IS NOW TWO FOR FOUR, AND THEY CUT THE LEAD TO 8-4 HERE.>>Gary: IF THERE’S A BRIGHT SPOT FOR BYU, OFFENSIVELY, IT’S BEEN BATTING WITH RUNNERS IN SCORING POSITION. AND THAT’S BEEN AN ISSUE RECENTLY. THEY ARE FOUR FOR NINE AT A TEAM, AND THREE FOR EIGHT WITH TWO OUTS. KEATON HELPING THOSE AVERAGES WITH HIS TWO OUT RBI SINGLE. BROCK HAIL THE CLEAN UP BATTER TRYING TO MAKE THINGS EVEN MORE INTERESTING HERE WITH ANDERSON ON THIRD. THEY WILL MAKE THIS A 5-8 GAME.>>Spencer: THE COUGARS TRAIL 8-2, ENTERING THE BOTTOM OF THE 7TH. HALE IS THE BATTER, AND INTO HALE FOR A DEAD BALL STRIKE TWO AND UTAH PITCHERS ARE JUST PAINTED THAT OUTSIDE PART OF THE PLATE AGAINST HALE. THEY ARE JUST TRYING TO GET HIM WHERE THEY HAVE TO PROTECT ON TWO AND NOT GET THE FOUL THEY THEY HAVE ZERO FOR TWO HE DID SCORE TO MAKE IT 2-2 AND TAKES IT OUTSIDE.>>Spencer: CRITICAL MOMENTS TO BROCK HALE AND NO PROBLEM FOR OLIVER DUN. HE STEPS ON THE MOUND, BYU DOES PLAY TWO RUNS, TO CUT THE LEAD 8-4. FOR>>Spencer: THE COUGARS TAKE ON TWO TO MAKE THINGS MORE INTERESTING. AS WE MOVE FURTHER INTO THIS RIVALRY GAME ON A TUESDAY NIGHT. A EARE MINDER THAT EACH AND EVERY WEEKDAY, AND SERIOUS XM BYU RADIO, YOU CAN WATCH OR LISTEN TO THE NATIONAL SIMULCAST. SPORTS NATION JOIN MYSELF AND MY CO-HOST FOR YOUR DAY-TO-DAY BYU SPORTS PLAY-BY-PLAY. FROM STUDIO B, IF YOU WANT TO KNOW ABOUT IT CHECK OUT BYU SPORTS NATION. SPECIFICALLY FOR MRS. JORDAN, JAROM’S WIFE, AND MY WIFE BRITTANY, THAT THINK OF MIKE LITTLEWOOD AS A LITTLE BIT OF A HEART THROB. SO A CELEBRITY CRUSH, THAT’S THE WAY TO TWO.>>Gary: THAT’S AWESOME.>>Spencer: COACH LITTLEWOOD DID TELL US TODAY, THE ONE THING THEY HAVE DONE CONSISTLY THIS YEAR AND THEY HAVE BEEN GOOD DEFENSIVELY. THEY HAVE NOT COMMITTED A TON OF ERRORS, AND THEY HAVE BEEN OVERALL PLEASED WITH THE WAY THE DEFENSE HAS SHOWED UP. BUT JUST SEARCHING FOR THAT CONSISTENCY, AND THEN SAID REALLY HAD TROUBLE DRIVING IN RUNNERS IN KEY POSITIONS WELL, TONIGHT, AS THEY POINTED OUT BYU WITH RUNNERS IN SCORING POSITIONS. I DON’T KNOW IF YOU CAN AFTER FOR MORE THAN THAT AS A COACH.>>Gary: YEAH, AND UTAH HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO PUT IT AWAY, BUT THEY PUT IT AWAY, AND THE INNING WAS I THINK THREE STRIKE OUTS IN A ROW. BUT THEY HAD OPPORTUNITIES AND TOOK ADVANTAGE OF IT, AND THE TOP OF THE FIFTH INNING WITH SIX RUNS. CHANDLER ANSON TAKES STRIKE TWO. THREE FOR FOUR, IN THAT NUMBER TWO SPOT. TWO SINGLES, A DOUBLE, A RUN BATTED IN AS PART OF THAT SIX RUN, FIFTH INNING. THE UTES LOOKING FOR WIN NUMBER 10, JUST NINE AND 28 COMING INTO THIS MATCH UP AGAINST BYU. LAST PLACE IN THE PAC 12. ALWAYS MAKE THE TEAM FEEL BETTER AND SPARK THEM TOWARDS WHAT THEY HOPE IS A NICE RUN TO PAC 12 PLAY, CURVE BALL. FROM THE MOVE PITCHER CALLED THE BALL OUTSIDE, 2 AND 2.>>Spencer: THE FIRST BATTER OF THE 8TH INNING, GROUND BALL UP THE MIDDLE, SCHNEEMANN OVER TO COVER, THROWS TO SIOUX ONE DOWN.>>Gary: BYU HAS SUCH A GOOD MIDDLE PART OF THE INFIELD. THEY HAVE SCHNEEMANN AT SHORT, AND ANDERSON AT SECOND, THEY HAVE BEEN THERE FOR A COUPLE OF YEARS NOW, AND THEY HAVE DONE SOME INCREDIBLE COMBINATION PLAYS THAT RALPH COMES IN ONE DAY, AND SAYS THAT’S A “SPORTS CENTER” TYPE PLAY RIGHT THERE, AND WE SAID YEAH, WE KNOW. THAT’S SOMETHING WE SEE OFTEN HERE WITH THOSE TWO. AND BOY, I TELL YOU, THE SPORTS BASEBALL F.I.D. FOR BYU, IS SO GOOD, HE WAS THE WILBUR SMITH AWARD WINNER BACK IN 2016, SELECTED BE I THE NATIONAL BASEBALL RIDERS ASSOCIATION, SO HE IS AS GOOD AS HE IS, AND UTAH HAS A GOOD ONE ALSO. WE LIKE WHEN HE COMES OVER HERE, HE DOES A GREAT JOB OF GIVING US INFORMATION, ALWAYS FRIENDLY, AND VERY INTELLIGENT.>>Spencer: SHARPLY HIT BY DUNN, WHO PICKED UP HIS THIRD SINGLE OF THE GAME, HE IS 3 FOR 5. ONE DOWN AND ONE ON, HIT NUMBER 12, WHO LEAD ATE-4.>>Gary: THAT PITCH IS NOT IN A GOOD LOCATION, BUT YOU CAN SEE BRENDEN, HE WILL DIVE AFTER EVERY BALL, USUALLY CAN’T GET TO IT. ALWAYS THINKS HE HAS A CHANCE TO GET IT. GOING BACK TO SPORTS INFORMATION DIRECTOR FOR THE BYU TEAM. AND THE DOUBLE PLAY YOU WERE REFERENCING WHERE HE SAID THAT’S A “SPORTS CENTER” TOP 10 PLAY, HE WAS RIGHT NUMBER FOUR THAT NIGHT, DOUBLE PLAY BEAUTY TURN. AND BRENDEN ANDERSON, AS HE FLIPPED IT OUT OF HIS GLOVE AFTER A DIVING STOP. AND GOT THEM NOT JUST ON THE TO. BYU CAN USE A SWEEP OR A CONFERENCE WHEN. LEGITIMATE HOPES OF FINISHING THE TOP FOUR, AND MAKING THE TOURNAMENT.>>Gary: YEAH, IT IS TOUGH TO SAY THAT THE UTAH GAME DOESN’T MEAN ANYTHING, BECAUSE IT ISN’T A CONFERENCE GAME, AND IT DOES. BECAUSE IT IS A RIVALRY GAME, BUT IN THE BIG PICTURE, IT DOESN’T BECAUSE CONFERENCE GAME IS WHERE YOU GET INTO THE PLAYOFF, TOP FOUR, TO BE IN THE REGIONAL TOURNAMENT, LIKE THEY WERE LAST YEAR. SO THEY WANT TO WIN THIS GAME, AND IF YOU SAID YOU DIDN’T WANT TO WIN YOU WOULDN’T BE TELLING THE TRUTH, BUT IF YOU DON’T, YOU HAVE TO PULL IT TOGETHER, THURSDAY, FRIDAY, AND SATURDAY, AGAINST SAN DIEGO, AND START WINNING GAMES TO GET YOURSELF IN POSITION TO MAKE THE TOURNAMENT WITH THE POP FOUR TEAMS.>>Spencer: ONE BALL AND ONE STRIKE, FACING JAKE. TOM 2 FOR 3 ON HIS ETCHING HE HAS A COUPLE OF RUNS BATTED IN, A SINGLE AND A DOUBLE. HE WALKED IN THE MOST RECENT AT-BAT, NOW TWO AND A STRIKE.>>I WAS HAVING THE CONVERSATION THAT YOU AND COMPARE WERE JUST HAVING YESTERDAY IN HIS OFFICE, AND TALKING ABOUT THE WEST COAST CONFERENCE FROM TOP TO BOTTOM, THE COACH SAID THERE IS SO MUCH PARITY, THAT ANYBODY CAN BEAT ANYBODY, THANK GOODNESS THIS YEAR, BECAUSE IT HAS GIVEN US A CHANCE TO GET SOME WINS, HE SAID WINNING THE LEAGUE IS NOT OUT OF THE LEAGUE OF POSSIBILITY. CLEARLY BEING ONE OF THE TOP FOUR IS IN OUR GRASP. SO JUST BECAUSE THE WAY THIS CONFERENCE IS PLAYING OUT, BYU EVEN IN THE SPOT THEY ARE, THEY HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY.>>Spencer: A FLY BALL TO RIGHT FIELD OFF THE BAT. NO PROBLEM FOR BROCK HAIL IN THE TOP OF THE 8TH. AND THEY WILL NOW FACE ERICK. DON’TINGING ON WITH THE CONVERSATION THAT JOY SON JUST ADDED TO, AS FRUSTRATING AS THINGS HAVE BEEN FOR BYU IN THE WEST COAST CONFERENCE THIS SEASON, PICKED TO WIN THE CONFERENCE, BY THE COACHES IN THE PRE-SEASON, THE COUGARS ARE SEVEN AND EIGHT. THEY ZILLION HAVE 12 TO PLAY, THEY ARE JUST 2 1/2 OUT OF ONE OF THE TOP FOUR SPOTS. AND THEY HAD THEIR BYE LAST WEEK. ALL BUT TWO INCLUDING BYU HAVE JUST NINE TO PLAY, SO THE COUGARS HAVE ROOM TO MAKE UP IN THE WIN COLUMN, IF THEY CAN HANDLE THEIR BUSINESS. THE COACH SAID LOOK WE ARE JUST TRYING TO WIN THE REMAINING SERIES, EVEN IF THEY WIN TWO OR THREE AGAINST THOSE FOUR OPPONENTS THAT’S ATE AND FOUR, THAT WOULD GIVE THEM 15 WINS AND 15 IS KIND OF THE MAGIC NUMBER TO GET IN THE TOP FOUR.>>Gary: YEAH, AND THAT’S A GOOD FEELING, LAST YEAR THEY DID THAT, THEY WON MOST OF THE SERIES.>>Spencer: ALL BUT TWO.>>Gary: YEAH, SO THEY GET IT GOING, AND STARTS THIS WEEKEND, THURSDAY, FRIDAY, SATURDAY, AGAINST SAN DIEGO, AND SAN DIEGO WAS PICKED TO BE WAY UP ON TOP, BUT THEY HAVEN’T BEEN ABLE TO COME THROUGH WITH WHAT THEY HAD EXPECTED. SO IT SHOULD BE A GOOD SERIES. COME ON OUT AND WATCH IT, IT SHOULD BE FUN TO SEE.>>Spencer: THE 0-2 PITCH, IS LOW FOR BALL ONE, WITH TWO OUTS. SUDDEN WICK DID GIVE UP THE SINGLE TO OLIVER DUN. TRYING TO GET OUT OF THIS INNING, WITH NO MORE RUNS SURRENDERED OR HITS FOR THAT MATTER. AND KEEPING THE MOMENTUM ON BYU’S SIDE. THE RUNNER GOES. AND DUNN IS GUNNED DOWN. A LAZE FRESH BEHIND HOME PLATE FROM D.C. CLAWSON, AND THAT WASN’T CLOSE. THROWN OUT BY A MILE. THREE DOWN IN THE TOP OF THE 8TH, BYU S>>Spencer: THE COUGARS AT A TWO RUNS IN THE BOTTOM OF THE 7TH TO MAKE THINGS MORE INTERESTING. AND NOTE WORTHY THAT UTAH TRAILED BY FOUR RUNS IN THE 9TH INNING THE LAST TIME THESE TEAMS PLAYED AT MILLER PARK, AND PUT TOGETHER A FOUR RUN IN THE TOP OF THE 9TH, AND OF COURSE EXTRA INNINGS. SO WHO KNOWS. WE TALKED TO BILL WHEN HIS TEAM WAS LEADING AND SAID IT WILL COME DOWN TO THE LAST INNING. AND I DOUBTED THE WAY THE MIDDLE RELIEVERS WERE THROWING BUT PERHAPS I WAS WELL OFF BASE. AS WE COME DOWN TO THE TIME SIX OUTS FOR BYU BASEBALL. WE ARE LOOKING TO PROVIDE SOME SPARKS AND MAKE IT WEIRD IN PROVO.>>Gary: AND THEN THE COACH WAS JUST SAYING THAT WILL PROBABLY COME DOWN TO THE LAST INNING AGAIN. AS JOHNSON IS THROWING THAT WELL, AND BYU WITH A COUPLE OF RUNS WHICH BRINGS IF YOU GET THE BASES LOADED YOU BRING THE TYING RUN TO THE PLATE. YOU ARE HERE TO CHIP AWAY, GET A RUN OR TWO, AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS NEXT INNING. FACING NAITO LEAD OFF THE BOTTOM OF THE 8TH FOR BYU. TWO BALLS AND ONE STRIKE AFTER THAT PITCH MISSES OUTSIDE. THE FOURTH PITCHER FOR UTAH THAT WENT WITH REBAR, AND THEN PIERCE, AND THEN KEVIN JOHNSON, AND NOW BYU ON THE OTHER HAND, WITH JAKE HE IS THEIR 7TH PITCHER OF THE DAY. FAVERO DOWN LOW IN THE ZONE TO FOUL THAT ONE AWAY, 2 AND 2. UTAH DOES HAVE BULLPEN ACTION. AS THEY HAVE SAID WE HAVE PROBABLY ANOTHER ONE OR TWO THAT ARE COMING IN AND YOU CAN SEE THE RIGHTY OUT THERE WARMING UP. THE 2-2, A LEFTY FOR THE UTES. TACKS ON ANOTHER STRIKE OUT. AGAIN, THAT BALL WENT RIGHT BY, THEY HAVE HAD A GOOD NIGHT, TWO IF FOUR, IS KNOCKINGED IN A RUN. SO HE HAS HAD A GOOD NIGHT.>>Gary: THEY HAVE FACED SIX BYU BATTERS, HE HAS STRUCK OUT THREE, SO IN COMBO WITH KEVIN JOHNSON THOSE TWO HAVE BEEN VERY EFFECTIVE FROM THE MOUND. BRAY I DON’T KNOW SUH WITH ONE DOWN.>>Spencer: CLAWSON ON DECK, HE STARTED. AND EFFECTIVE BOTTOM OF THE 7TH FOR BYU WITH A LEAD OFF DOUBLE. LATER SCORED ON A DO YOU BELIEVE FROM KYLE D. SUH QUICKLY DOWN IN THE COUNT, 0-2. EIGHT RUNS ON 12 HITS FOR UTAH, FOUR RUN BOTH HAVE COMMITTED ONE ERROR. STEER FOR THREE TONIGHT, CERTAINING FOR HIT NUMBER ONE, AND HE FOOLS HIM, THE TWO QUICK OUTS WITH CLAWSON COMING TO THE PLATE. WELL, WE ARE SEEING SOMETHING FROM THE BULLPEN OF UTAH WITH SPENCER I DON’T KNOWSON COMING IN. TONIGHT YOU CAN SEE THE POTENTIAL THEY HAVE IF THEY PITCH LIKE THIS OUTSIDE CORNER HAS BEEN FAVORABLE TO JOSH. IN HIS INNING AND TWO-THIRDS. 0-1. AND HE WILL THINK ABOUT IT A BIT. WE CAN GET ON THE SAME PAGE, THAT IS LOW FOR BALL ONE. THE UTES ARE FOUR OUTS AWAY FROM ENDING THEIR SIX GAME LOSING STREAK, IN DOING SO AGAINST BYU, BUT CLAWSON STILL SEEING IT WELL. THAT BAM IS CUT OFF DEEP BY JR., AND DAVID CLAWSON HAS BACK TO BACK DOUBLES IN HIS LAST TWO APPEARANCES.>>Spencer: THAT’S GOOD TO SEE, BECAUSE CLAWSON BOTH OF THOSE DOUBLES WERE JUST HIT RIGHT ON THE BOUT TON AND HIS PREVIOUS AT-BAT, KNOCKED IT OUT ABOUT TE. SO LOOK AT THIS SWING, MAN, VERY QUICK, BALL IS UP IN THE ZONE A BIT, AND BY THE TIME HE GETS IT IN, CLAWSON EASILY STROLLED TO THE SECOND, WITH A ONE OUT — TWO OUT DOUBLE HERE. AND IN THE BULLPEN, UTAH HAS MORE, NUMBER 30 A RIGHTY THROWING. HI DOUBLES IN THE 7TH AND NOW LOOKING TO DRIVE IN CLAWSON, WITH TWO OUTS IN THE BOTTOM OF THE 8TH. AND THE LAST DOUBLE THAT KYLE HIT, BOY, HE HIT IT SO HARD, HE JUST DIDN’T ELEVATE IT ENOUGH, JUST RIGHT OFF THE FENCE IN CENTER FIELD. MU THREE FOR THREE.>>Gary: THE BREAK OUT NIGHT FOR KYLE DEAN, IN WHAT HAS BEEN KIND OF A HEAD SCRATCHER SEASON, BOTH HEALTH WISE, AND THE LIMITED OPPORTUNITIES HE HAS BEEN GIVEN, THIS IS HUGE FOR TEEN, AND HIS CONFIDENCE MOVING FORWARD HE STARTED THE DAY AT 200, SO THAT’S A BIG JUMP, AND HERE HE IS BEHIND IN THE COUNT, HERE HE IS THREE FOR THREE ON THE EVENING.>>Gary: STEER-2, RUNNER ON SECOND CLAWSON DOUBLED WITH TWO OUTS, HE TOOK THE PITCH HIGH, ONE AND TWO. YOU JUST FETE THE FEELING THAT BYU IS PROBABLY GOING TO HAVE TO SCRAMBLE SOMETHING TOGETHER HERE TO FEEL LIKE THEY HAVE A SHOT TO TIE THINGS UP.>>Gary: YES, YOU JUST TRY TO CHIP AWAY HERE, TWO BIG OUT HIT RIGHT HERE.>>Spencer: THE PITCH IN FRONT OF HOME PLATE. GOOD BLOCK BY KRAMER, CATCHER FOR UTAH, 2 AND 2. BYU FOUR FOR TEN WITH RUNNERS IN SCORING POSITION, CLAWSON OBVIOUSLY IN THAT POSITION NOW. HOPING THAT KYLE DEAN CAN EXTEND HIS PERFECT HITTING NIGHT FROM THE PLATE, 3 FOR 3 WITH 2 SINGLES AND A DOUBLE, INCLUDING A RUN BATTED IN. TWO BALLS TWO STRIKES AND TWO OUTS. DEAN SWINGS AND MISSES ADVANTAGE UTAH PITCHING ONE AGAINST, HE HAS FIVE STRIKE OUTS AGAINST THE NINE BATTERS HE HAS FACED. WE WILL GO TO TOP OF THE 9TH INNING WITH AN 8-4 LEAD. ON 12 HITS. THE COUGARS WITH NINE HITS BUT THEY COULDN’T PUT A RUNNER ACROSS, AND DAVID CLAWSON IN SCORING POSITION. SO THEY WILL NEED A MAGICAL 9TH INNING TO TRY AND KEEP THINGS INTERESTING AGAINST UTAH ON THEIR HOME FIELD. DREW ZIMMERMAN, WILL BE THE PITCHNER THE 9TH FOR BYU AND MIKE LITTLEWOOD. 1.30 EARNED RUN AVERAGE, TWO AND ONE RECORD. 27 AND TWO-THIRDS INNINGS PITCHED AND 22 STRIKE OUTS TO 11 WALKS.>>Spencer: PARKINSON, ALEX, KENNY SIGNS PSYCHIATRIED OUT BY MIKE LITTLEWOOD THE BLOW UP INNING FOR THE PITCHING STAFF HAPPENED IN THE FIFTH WHEN UTAH PUT UP SICK RUNS TO TAKE AN 8-2 LEAD. AND THIS IS A LEAD OFF SINGLE THE DESIGNATED HITTER WHO IS NOW TWO FOR FOUR AND HE WAS A BIG PART OF UTAH’S FIFTH INNING BARRAGE WITH AN RBI DOUBLE. HE GOT IT UP A LITTLE BIT IN THE TONE, AND HE JUST RIPPED IT. BASE HIT OUT TO RIGHT FIELD. THAT WILL BRING UP WADE GOLDEN WHO TOOK OVER AT FIRST BASE A FEW AGO FOR HIS FIRST AT PATH. GOLDEN TRYING TO LAY DOWN A BUNT, AND PUSHES THE FOUL TERRITORY. ON THE THIRD BASE SIDE. GOLDEN SAW A LOT OF TIME IN THE MOST RECENT PAC 12 SERIES AGAINST ARIZONA STATE. HIT A TWO RUN HOME RUN IN GAME ONE OF THAT SERIES. AND HAS RECORDED A HIT IN FOUR OF THE LAST FIVE APPEARANCES. SHOWING BUNTS AGAIN. AND THAT’S A FOUL TIP BACK FOR STRIKE TWO. MIGUEL WAS ON FIRST AFTER A LEAD OFF SINGLE, UTAH WITH AN 8-4 LEAD. GOLDEN ON FIRST BASE. TAKES STRIKE THREE STARING. AND DESCRIBE ZIMMERMAN, HAS HIS FIRST OUT HERE IN THE 9TH. FIST TWO TRYING TO SACRIFICE OVER, AND THE LAST PITCH BY ZIMMERMANN WAS A GOOD LOCATION.>>Spencer: THAT WILL BRING UP DOMINICK WITH ONE OUT. STRIKE ONE FROM ZIMMERMAN. HE REACHED ON A BUNT, DROVE IN A RUN WHILE DOING SO, IN THAT SIX RUN FIFTH INNING. AND HE HAS DOWN 0-2 TO ZIMMERMANN.>>Gary: YOU CAN SEE THAT GOOD CURB CAN BALL, A FAST BALL IN THE LOW 90’S, LOCATES IT WELL, GOOD MOVEMENT IN THAT CURVE BALL, REALLY BITES.>>Spencer: ALSO HAVE A NICE SLIDER ONE OUT AND ONE ON. FOUR RUN ADVANTAGE FOR UTAH THE TOP OF THE 9TH. ZIMMERMANN OUTSIDE FOR BALL 1. TO MAKE THE COUNT 1-2. THE 1-2, FIGHTS IT OFF, POPPED UP OUT OF PLAY, OUT OF THE PARK. OVER THE STANDS BEYOND FIRST BASE, AND THE COUNT WILL STAY AT 1 AND 2. MISSED IT EARLIER, DOMINICK MISSED TEN GAMES, AFTER HE TOOK A PITCH TO THE HEAD AGAINST NUMBER FIVE RANKED OREGON STATE. AND RETURNED LAST WEEK AFTER THAT LONG LAYOFF AGAINST ARIZONA STATE. SO GLAD HESS DOING BETTER. AND HEAD INJURIES REGARDLESS OF THE SPORTS, ALWAYS KIND OF MAKE YOU TAKE A STEP BACK AND LOOK AT THE BIG PICTURE. BACK IN THE LINE-UP. AND MAKING A DIFFERENCE TONIGHT, HERE IN THIS GAME AGAINST BYU. TWO HOPPER TO SHORT, DOUBLE PLAY BALL, 6-4-3, ZIMMERMAN PUTS TOGETHER A BEAUTY OF AN INNING ON THE MOUND FOR BYU FOR A STRIKE OUT, DIDN’T GIVE UP A SINGLE BUT GETS THE DOUBLE PLAY, AND WILL GO TO THE BOTTOM OF THE 9TH, SEARCHING FOR SOME HEROICS, MCINTYRE, ANDERSON DUE UP, DON’T RIVALRY PAYABLE ON A TUESDAY NIGHT, AT MITTER PARK, AND LARRY H MILLER FIELD. THE UTAH UTES WITH AN 8-4 ADVANTAGE, DOUBLING UP RIGHT NOW, THE COUGARS GOT OUT OF THE TOP OF THE 9TH WITH A DOUBLE PLAY, TURNED BY THE SOLID INFIELD OF DANIEL SCHNEEMANN. OVER TO BRIAN AT FESS. MITCH MACENTIRE WILL LEAD THINGS OFF FOR BYU HERE IN THE BOTTOM OF THE 9TH. AGAINST THE NEW PITCHER, TRENTON STOLTE WHOSE HAD AN ERA OF 4.97, THE SIDE ARM DELIVERY, 15 STRIKE OUTS AND 11 WALKS AND 25 AND A THIRD INNINGS PITCHED. PAREN DEN ANDERSON AND DANIEL SCHNEEMANN. AFTER THAT THE HEART OF THE LINE-UP FOR BYU UTAH TRAILED 6-2, THE LAST TIME THEY PLAYED IN PROVO, THEY PUT TOGETHER A FOUR RUN NIGHT, TO FORCE EXTRA INNINGS. THEY WENT ON A WILD PITCH, 7-6, SO YOU NEVER KNOW. AND IT IS ALWAYS HAVING RIVALRY, WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN.>>MITCH TO LEAD THINGS OFF AGAINST STULTS. AND STRIKE ONE. FROM THE RIGHT HANDER STULTS. THE RALLY CAPS HAVE FOUND THEIR WAY BACK, MAVERICK WAS THE FIE FOR SO LONG WHO IS NOW PITCHING AND PITCHING WELL IN SINGLE A, AND MINOR A PAYABLE. THEY ARE LOOKING FOR THEIR HAT GUY, MCINTYRE GROUNDS OUT TO SECOND, DUNN OVER AT FIRST, FOR ONE OUT. AND THAT WILL BRING UP ANDERSON. SO MCINTYRE HAS A SEVEN GAME HIT STREAK WORKING UNTIL HE ENTERED THIS GAME, AS A PINCH HITTER, HE WAS ZERO FOR TWO TONIGHT, AND THAT SEEMS LIKELY IT WOULD COME TO AN END.>>Gary: UNLESS IT GOES INTO EXTRA INNINGS HERE, THERE’S A FEW CAPS ON THE HAT THERE, BUT HE WAS THE PITCHER OF RECORD WHEN HE THREW THE WILD PITCH. AND BYU SCORED IN THE BOTTOM OF THE 10TH INNING TO WIN THE FIRST GAME. AND THEN THE SECOND GAME HE WAS THE FINAL PITCHER, GOT THE FINAL OUT. AND UTAH’S 4-3 VICTORY, SO HE IS ON AND TRYING TO BE THE CLOSER HERE IN THE 9TH INNING. BYU IN NEED OF SOME MAGIC, STRIKE ONE SWINGING FROM ANDERSON. YEAH, WE HAVE SEEN THAT STRIKE ONE SWINGING AND STRIKE THREE SWINGING. 13 STRIKE OUTS TONIGHT FOR THE UTAH PITCHERS AGAINST THE HITTERS.>>Spencer: FIVE FOR SPENCER KEVIN JOHNSON, AND FIVE FOR JOSH. ANDERSON. FOULED BACK, RIGHT SIDE SCREEN, AND IT IS 1-2, THE RALLY CAPS ARE BEING WARN TONIGHT IN THE BYU DUGOUT. BY K.C. JACOBSEN, AND THEY ARE ALSO CHEWING ON HONEY STICKS WHICH APPARENTLY IS A RALLY THING. THEY ARE CALLED RALLY STICKS AND SUPERSTITIONS LIVE ON.>>Gary: YEAH, THEY DO, IT IS PART OF BASEBALL.>>Spencer: BALL TWO, NOW TWO AND TWO. BYU TRAILING BY FOUR RUNS IN THE BOTTOM OF THE 9TH. ANDERSON IS ZERO FOR FOUR IN TODAY’S GAME AGAINST UTAH. FULL COUNT, AS THAT PITCH MISSES OUTSIDE THE BIG PITCH ON THE WAY TO INSTITUTES FROM ANDERSON. HIT INTO RIGHT CENTER. JUNIOR ON THE RUN WILL MAKE THE CATCH. AND THERE ARE TWO OUTS IN THE BOTTOM OF THE 9TH, UTAH SOUTH ONE OUT AWAY FROM ENDING A SIX GAME LOSING STREAK.>>Gary: YEAH, THAT TIME ANDERSON HIT IT HARD. FAVORS THAT RIGHT CENTER FIELD AREA THERE, AND HE IS SO SMOOTH, HE JUST DRIFTS. HE IS A GLIDER, HE FOLYDS UNDER THAT, AND THEN HE MADE A DIFFICULT PLAY LOOK FAIRLY EASY.>>DANIEL LAST CHANCE BATTER FOR BYU. BALL ONE INSIDE AND LOW. FROM STULTS. ON DECK IF IT COMES TO THAT. SCHNEEMANN WELL HIT BALL ON THE LINE, AND THAT WILL WRAP THINGS UP. THE UTAH UTES TAKE GAME THREE — EXCUSE ME, GAME THREE OF THE FOUR GAME SERIES AND TAKE IT A 2-1 LEAD, WITH GAME FOUR TO HAPPEN LATER IN MAY IN SALT LAKE CITY. WITH THE PUT OUT. THE COUGARS NOW TURN THEIR ATTENTION TO WEST COAST CONFERENCE PLAY, AND A THREE GAME SERIES AS THAT LOOK TO GET BACK IN THE W.C.C. HUNT, UTAH WILL HEAD HOME FOR A THREE GAME SERIES AGAINST THE UNIVERSITY OF ARIZONA AS THEY TRY TO DIG OUT OF THE BASEMENT OF THE PACK 12. DEXTER AND DEXTER, HELPS WHEN YOU NEED IT MOST, DEXTER LAW.COM. UTAH WITH A SIX RUN ARE FIFTH INNING, AND IT GOT OUT OF HAND WHEN ERICK DROVE IN A RUN, BACK TO BACK DOUBLE TO START OFF THAT INNING, AND THE UTES CAPITALIZE IN PROVO. SNAPPING THEIR SIX GAME LOSING STREAK, THEY GET THEIR 10TH WIN OVERALL THIS SEASON. AND IMPROVE TO TEN AND 28, BYU DROPS TO 18 AND 17. THE COUGARS SEVEN AND EIGHT IN W.C.C. PLAY. 2 1/2 OUT OF ONE OF THOSE TOP FOUR SPOTS IN THE PROSEASON TOURNAMENT.>>Gary: YOU CAN SEE THE PLAYERS SHAKING HANDS AND GOOD SPORTSMANSHIP, UTAH JUST CAME TO PLAY TODAY, BOY, THREE FOR FIVE, THREE FOR FIVE. JUST TOOK OVER THIS GAME. FOR UTAH.>>Spencer: AAA, MANYVP OF THE GAME. WHAT IS YOUR INSURANCE DO THE PITCHING WAS OUTSTANDING FOR UTAH LED BY THE RIGHT HANDER, TWO INNINGS, AT 1 POINT HE HAD FACED SIX BATTERS AND STRUCK OUT FIVE OF THEM. BUT WOW, 13 COMBINED STRIKE OUTS FOR THE UTAH PITCHING STAFF TONIGHT. IN A COMMITTEE EFFORT TO GET THE WIN OVER BYU. AND TAKE A TWO GAMES TO ONE LEAD IN THE SEASON SERIES.>>Gary: YEAH, A GREAT GAME, A FUN GAME TO WATCH, UTAH CAME OUT, AND TOOK IT TO BYU. THAT’S THE WAY IT WORKS SOMETIMES AND THEY WILL HAVE ONE MORE TO GO OUT AND IN A COUPLE OF WEEKS TO SEE IF THEY CAN TIE THIS SERIES BYU WITH FOUR RUNS ON NINE HITS. THE UTES WILL LEAD PROVO VICTORIOUS. 8-4 THE FINAL. ANOTHER RIVALRY SHOW DOWN, THIS TIME THE UTAH STATE AGGIES MAKE THE TWO HOUR DRIVE SOUTH FROM LOGAN UTAH, THE COVERAGE BEGINS AT 6:00 CAN.
