Not even snow and rain could put a damper on BYU’s parade last week. With the season coming to a close, the Cougars are using their momentum to swing into the final inning with more power than ever. Baseball and Softball haven’t stolen your heart yet this season? You’re missing out! Make sure to download the BYUtv app to watch the Cougs steal their opponents’ bases. BYUtv has you covered, from daily Sports Nation updates, weekly sports blogs, and live coverage of your favorite Cougars’ home games.
What a week for the Cougars! BYU hit the West Coast for four days of away games. First on the schedule was Cal State Fullerton and the Cougs reigned victorious, taking a 10–5 win. The win was a projection of things to come, as the Cougars went into the rest of the week with a 3-day series against Pepperdine. What better way to return home to Provo, than with three away game wins under their belts? BYU won 4–2 on Thursday, 6–3 on Friday, and 4–2 on Saturday afternoon. The Cougars’ last game of the week was neck-and-neck for a while, until they managed to break away from Pepperdine in the eighth inning to secure a win. Next on the schedule is a Mother’s Day tribute home match against Dixie State on May 10th, followed by a 3-day series in Provo against the University of the Pacific. BYU will continue the theme nights with a Game Show Night on Thursday May 12th, and Country Fair Day on Saturday the 14th. Can’t be there this week? That’s ok, because Star Wars night will be next Tuesday at Miller Park. And, you can catch the games on BYUtv this Friday and Saturday. See you there!
