PROVO, Utah - No. 24 BYU travels to San Diego for its first road series in WCC play this season, taking on the Toreros April 4-6 at Fowler Park.

BYU vs. San Diego Game Notes

The Toreros won last year’s series, 2-1, but the Cougars took the series in 2016 and 2017, including two wins last time the teams faced off at Fowler Park.

The Cougars enter the weekend at 21-6, tied for the second-best mark through 27 games in program history. BYU went 23-4 in 2016 and also hit 21-6 in 1980 and 1983. 

BYU is also tied atop the WCC standings at 7-2 with Loyola Marymount with three series down and six still to play.  

The Cougars will again start senior right-hander Jordan Wood, sophomore right-hander Easton Walker and sophomore right-hander Justin Sterner in the three games this weekend. Along with freshman reliever Reid McLaughlin, the four players are the only teammates in the country to all be ranked in the top 130 nationally in ERA, with Walker in first at 0.00, McLaughlin 57th at 1.67, Sterner 93rd at 2.04, and Jordan Wood 123rd at 2.25. No other team has more than two.

At the plate, BYU is also among the national leaders, ranking 45th in the NCAA with a .290 batting average and 37th with a .393 on-base percentage.

Brock Hale, last week's WCC Player of the Week and a Collegiate Baseball National Player of the Week, is hitting .421 over his last 10 games with 33 total bases, 13 RBIs and 12 runs. Jackson Cluff, Brian Hsu and Mitch McIntyre also each have 13 or more hits over BYU's last 10 contests.
