Box Score

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - The BYU Cougars got eight runs in the top of the seventh inning to defeat the New Mexico Lobos, 13-5 tonight at Isotopes Park. Senior Cameron Smith went 2-for-4 with one RBI to lead the Lobos at the plate. The Lobos fall to 20-11 on the season and 7-4 in Mountain West Conference play. BYU is 14-15 and 4-4.

"That's the way college baseball is," said Lobo baseball head coach Ray Birmingham. "BYU is a good hitting team. We were right in the ball game and I thought we had a good chance of beating when the score was 4-2. We have to stop the big innings. But that's the good thing about baseball, we get to take another shot at them tomorrow."

The Lobos got two runs in the first inning off senior Chris Juarez's RBI single up the middle that scored senior Adam Courcha from third base. Junior All-America candidate Rafael Neda drove home Juarez from third to put the Lobos on top, 2-0.

Down 4-2 in the top of the seventh the Cougars offense got eight runs on nine hits to put the Cougars on top 13-2.

Smith led the Lobos at the plate with a single in the fourth and an RBI double in the eighth. Smith also scored a run in the eighth inning off senior Max Willett's RBI single and made the score 13-4.

Senior Justin Howard hit a solo home run in the ninth to right field to make the score 13-5. Howard was 1-for-5 with an RBI.
