March 1, 2003

Box Score


Brigham Young (4-8) left-hander Kenneth Gravely held the Gonzaga Bulldogs (3-6) bats in check as BYU out hit the Bulldogs 12-4 during an 10-1 Cougars victory. Gravely improved to 1-0 on the season as he pitched 8 innings allowing only 3 hits.

In what was the Bulldogs second game of the day, Brigham Young jumped on the board in the top of the second inning as Ranger Wiens walked and stole second against Bulldogs starter Sean Lichter (0-2). Wiens would score the games first run as Jake Stubblefield doubled to right center. Stubblefield would later come around to score on a wild pitch.

Gonzaga cut the Cougars lead to 2-1 in the top of the second as David Johnson reached on an infield error. Johnson stole second and scored on a Jeff Culpepper sacrifice fly.

BYU increased their lead to 8-1 on a Kevin Bills RBI single in the fourth and five more runs in the fifth. Stubblefield drove home the Cougars first run of the inning with a sharp single up the middle followed by a Kainoa Obrey two-run home run to dead center field. Bills again provided more BYU offense as he drilled a two-run double down the left field line. Matt Reding was finally able to get the Bulldogs out of the inning with a strike out of Adam Wilkes.

Wiens finished with three hits to lead BYU which finished the tournament with a 2-2 record. Gonzaga will face Washington State in their final game of the tournament on Sunday morning before returning home to open WCC play on Friday afternoon against Pepperdine.
