Kody Davis was 2-for-4 and Zach Adams gave up just one unearned run and three hits in 52⁄3 innings for the Utes (10-18, 1-10), who have lost eight of their past nine games.

Utah, which beat Arizona (13-19, 3-8) 7-3 on Friday, closes out its three-game home series at noon Sunday.

Pacific 11, BYU 7 • In Orem, the Tigers raced to a 9-0 lead after three innings, denying the Cougars a sweep in their three-game, West Coast Conference series.

Behind a double and two home runs by Kelton Caldwell, the Cougars (12-21, 4-8) closed the gap to 9-7 in the bottom of the seventh inning, but Pacific (14-19, 5-7) scored twice in the top of the ninth.

"We didn’t have the mindset that the game was over," BYU coach Mike Littlewood said. "We showed a little character coming back. We had them on the ropes, but you can only get so many big two-out hits."

BYU 2-4, San Diego 1-3 • In San Diego, the Cougars bounced back after being no-hit Friday night by beating the Toreros twice Saturday, 2-1 and 4-3, in West Coast Conference play.

In Game 1, Sydney Broderick had two doubles and an RBI, and Tori Almond allowed just four hits while striking out nine in a complete-game victory.

Trailing 3-1 entering the seventh inning during Game 2, Broderick hit a three-run homer and McKenna Bull struck out two of the three batters she faced in the bottom half of the innings for the Cougars (16-20, 2-1), who have won five of their past six games.

"We’re so proud of our team today for fighting through a weekend that we didn’t play our best and taking two of three from San Diego (16-18, 1-2)," BYU coach Gordon Eakin said. "Winning on the road in conference play is always a difficult task. Even though we didn’t hit on all cylinders this weekend, we got it done when it counted."

Utah 6, Oregon State 4 • Eight Utes had at least one hit, including Bridget Castro, whose two-run homer in the fifth inning propelled the Utes to their second straight Pac-12 win over the Beavers.

Sammy Cordova came on in relief to earn her sixth win of the season for the Utes, no-hitting the Beavers over 32⁄3 innings.

Anissa Urtez was 2-for-3 with an RBI for the Utah (14-15, 3-7), which can complete the sweep over Oregon State (12-20, 2-7) at noon Sunday. The game will be televised on the Pac-12 Network.
