The Wolverines fought hard during last Tuesday’s game against rival BYU but let the game slide losing 9-2.

With the game off to a rough start, neither team scored any runs in the first two innings. BYU was the first to reach the scoreboard in the bottom of the third inning.

The Cougars’ two runs were enough to get the Wolverines going. UVU came right out and brought home two runs also.

Junior Jessica Anderson was on second as Freshmen Amanda Perez came up to bat. Perez’s bunt was enough to bring Anderson to third base. Sophomore Samantha Telarroja then had a hit into left field that brought Anderson home giving UVU their first run of the game.

Telarroja also came across home plate in the bottom of the third tying the game at two. Her run was the last UVU would put up on the board for this game.

UVU’s two runs brought it to close for the Cougars. In the top of the fourth BYU scored a quick three runs bringing the score to 5-2. They then brought home two more runs in the top of the fifth widening the gap even more to 7-2.

BYU dominated the rest of the game earning their final two runs on back-to-back solo home runs in the top of the seventh and winning the game 9-2.

UVU will be on the road for the next week and will return home to take on another in-state rival Utah in a double header on April 21.
