State colleges: BYU crushes rival Utah in baseball
This is an archived article that was published on sltrib.com in 2013, and information in the article may be outdated. It is provided only for personal research purposes and may not be reprinted.

Utah starter Chase Rezac's first pitch in Tuesday's rivalry baseball game against BYU sailed over the right-field fence at Miller Field, courtesy of the Cougars' two-sport star, Jacob Hannemann.

Talk about a tone-setter.

Using that momentum provided by a player who is actually on scholarship in football, the Cougars rolled to an easy 9-3 win over the Utes to even the season series at 1-1, with two left to play.

"I just saw it and reacted and swung," Hanneman said of that first pitch after BYU ace Desmond Poulson had shut down the Utes in the top of the first, the only inning Poulson worked. "It was great. I always want to go in and start things off and get a couple runs that first inning. I love the first pitch fastball, and that's what I got, so I took it out."

BYU coach Mike Littlewood couldn't help but smile when Hanneman's shot easily cleared the 345-foot sign.
