Ute Briefs (3/13)


After Tuesday’s loss to Gonzaga, U baseball head coach Bill Kinneberg said, “I know that if we play our game, we’ll continue to improve.”

His Swingin’ Utes did not disappoint their coach Wednesday with an 8-5 victory over New Mexico State.

Juniors Austin Jones and Stephen Fife were the main contributors to the Utes getting back on the winning track. Jones connected on a homer to left-center off Aggie pitcher Tyler Sturdevant in the second inning. Jones and fellow middle-of-the-lineup swinger Jesse Shriner paced the Utes to their eight runs with three RBIs each. Designated hitter Cody Guymon pitched in, going 3-for-5

Fife kept the Aggies on their heels all morning, going seven strong innings. He allowed only three hits and had five strikeouts.

After the Utes used two pitchers in a third of an inning, junior Robert Chimpky came in and shut down the Aggie lineup with four strikeouts in an inning and two-thirds pitched.

The Utes are now 2-1 in the tournament and look to take on the Hoosiers (4-6) who are 1-3 in the tournament so far. The Hoosiers are paced by sophomore catcher Josh Phegley and sophomore utility man Evan Crawford. Thursday’s game starts at 3 p.m.
