A first-inning homerun by Brent Turley sparked a massive attack on Wyoming by Brigham Young University and led the Cougars to a 12-4 victory in Western Athletic Conference play Saturday.
In fact, when coupled with two runs scored before his first trip to the plate, Turley's three-run homer gave Brigham Young all the runs it would need to defeat the Cowboys.The Cougars didn't stop there, however.
They took advantage of Mike Shultis' control problems and scored two on walks in the third inning.
Jason Kummerfeldt, who earned his seventh save in Friday's second game, then gave up a three-run, 410-foot homerun to Jonathan Lopez in the fifth. Also scoring in that inning for the Cougars was Turley, who scored on a sacrifice fly by John Wagner.
The final BYU run came in the eighth inning, when Dave Milne scored on a wild pitch.
Wyoming's limited offense came on single runs in the third, fourth, seventh and ninth innings. Mitch May scored on a Ron Warner double in the third, and the fourth saw George Baker scoring on a Warner single to left.
