MALIBU, Calif. — Tony Cooper couldn’t quite replicate his Friday afternoon four-hit, four-RBI performance, but Pepperdine was plenty happy with the outfielder’s three RBI on Saturday in an 8-7 win against BYU at Eddy D. Field Stadium.
Cooper only had one hit, but he provided it when it mattered most. With two outs in the sixth inning, Pepperdine had a pair of runners in scoring position and had just tied the ball game. Cooper lined a 1-1 fastball into centerfield to score both runners and put the Waves ahead for good.
MALIBU, Calif. — For the second day in a row, the Pepperdine offense rallied from behind to take down the BYU Cougars. On Saturday, the Waves (28-19, 12-6) trailed 5-2 and 6-4, but a four-run sixth inning propelled them to an 8-7 victory at Eddy D. Field Stadium.
The win gave Pepperdine a crucial West Coast Conference sweep that moved the Waves into a tie for first place after league-leading San Diego dropped its second straight game to Loyola Marymount.
In the paramount sixth inning, redshirt freshman Bryan Langlois led off with an infield single, reaching on a chopper to third base. Both James Grandpre and Matt Gelalich walked, despite both beginning their at bats trying to sacrifice bunt. Zach Vincej flared a single into centerfield to score a run and Joe Sever tied the game with a sacrifice fly to right field.
BYU starter Adam Miller struggled with his command. He pitched only two innings, allowing three runs on two hits and four walks and a hit batsman.
With plenty of offensive support, starting pitcher Crosby Slaught cruised through six innings, allowing only two hits as the Anteaters got their first series win of the season.
Slaught was removed in the seventh inning with an 8-0 lead after allowing only two hits and one walk in the game. The offense staked him to that lead with contributions throughout the lineup. Continue reading
