In Malibu, Calif., BYU pitchers Jeff Barker and Brandon Kinser combined for a 1-0 upset over No. 24 Pepperdine, the West Coast Conference's leading team.
Barker went 7 1/3 innings, giving up just three hits and striking out six. But Kinser got the final five outs to get the win in relief. He struck out two Waves hitters in the ninth to improve to 3-2.
The Cougars scored their lone run in the ninth inning. Freshman Brennon Lund started things off by getting hit by a pitch. Back-to-back singles by Dillon Robinson and Brock Whitney loaded the bases. Kelton Caldwell then launched a fly ball deep to right for the game-winning sacrifice fly.
