SAN DIEGO – PJ Conlon handcuffed BYU baseball, pitching six innings en route to a 19-3 victory for No. 29 San Diego.

The league-leading Toreros (15-9 overall, 7-1 in West Coast Conference) increased their first-place margin as Conlon improved to 4-1, leading 18-0 when he left the game. The Cougars (11-15, 4-4) did have one silver lining in the relief performance of Mason Marshall.

Nearly everything the Toreros hit slipped past Cougar defenders as they tallied an 11-0 lead through the third inning when James Lengal replaced starter Jeff Barker, who then was replaced by Marshall. Marshall struck out five in four innings of relief.

Brennon Lund extended his hitting streak to 13 games, doubling down the right field line in the third for BYU’s first hit of the game.

BYU picked up two of its three runs in the eighth inning from a triple by Andy Isom.

“The only emotion I have after this game is embarrassment,” BYU coach Mike Littlewood said. “We chose a bad night not to show up. We didn't pitch, we didn't hit, we didn't play defense and we simply didn't compete.

The Cougars conclude the series at San Diego on Saturday afternoon with a live broadcast on Radio 960 AM and live online BYU Radio and theW.tv.
