Tags: BYU Cougars Baseball/WCC With two outs and two on, Pacific moved ahead via a single up the middle to take the 6-5 lead. But the Valdez two-RBI double kept the Cougars alive, eventually leading to the Peterson grand slam in the 10th to win. Danny Gelalich was hit by a pitch, Casey Jacobsen reached on an error and Brian Hsu was intentionally walked to load the bases in the 10th for BYU with one out.
