Three home runs and a Trace Hansen three-run double provided plenty of offense in BYU's 16-2 victory over Santa Clara on Friday night at Larry H. Miller Field in Provo.
Cougar second baseman Hansen went 3 for 4 and drove in five runs for BYU (19-29, 9-14). His bases-clearing double in the fifth inning scored three runs and gave BYU an 8-1 lead. He added a two-run double in the seventh inning which put the Cougars up 16-1.
BYU starting pitcher Jeff Barker went seven innings and allowed only two hits and one run, while striking out four.
