BYU sets new school record with 26th win

SAN DIEGO -- A solo home run by senior Cynthia Fallowfield in the sixth inning proved to be the game-winner and No. 3 seed BYU upset No. 1 seed San Diego State 2-1.

Fallowfield (8-4) also picked up the win going 4 2/3 innings while fiving up one run and three hits. Sophomore Bre DeSanta (17-5) picked up the loss for the Aztecs.

The Cougars (36-16) scored first in the fourth inning as senior Brooke Cadiente singled down the left field line to score sophomore Katy Barnes, who pinch ran for Neta Lei, who reached on an error.

The Aztecs (37-18) responded in the fifth inning as Joann Figeuroa doubled to score Jennifer Funk, who reached on a walk, to tie the score at 1-1.

Fallowfield's home run in the sixth was down the left field line with one out. It is only her second home run of the season after hitting a grand slam against Colorado State two weeks earlier in Provo.

BYU will now play San Diego State again in an elimination game with the winner advancing to play Colorado State in the championship game.
