MORAGA, Calif. - The Utah baseball team closed out its four-game series against Saint Mary's with a 3-1 win on Monday afternoon.

Chase Rezac made the start on the mound for Utah, pitching 3 2/3 innings and allowing three hits with four strikeouts and three walks. Dalton Carroll pitched the remaining 5 1/3 innings in relief, allowing one run on four hits with four strikeouts and three walks. Dalton Carroll picked up his first collegiate win, going to 1-1 on the year.

"We pitched extremely well," Utah head coach Bill Kinneberg said. "Rezac was on a pitch count and we wanted to get him through the fourth, but we couldn't quite do it. Dalton pitched great for five innings."

At the plate, Tyler Yagi went 2-for-3 with an RBI while Trey Nielsen was 2-for-4.

The Utes scored the first run of the game in the fourth inning. Yagi and Nielsen each had hits in the inning while Dallas Carroll scored on a balk.

Saint Mary's looked to break through in the fourth as Rezac walked three-straight batters with two outs before Dalton Carroll came in to get a strikeout and get out of the inning. The Gaels would leave nine runners on base throughout the day.

The Utes increased their lead with a run in the seventh that started with a double from Nielsen before he scored on a sacrifice fly off the bat of Bret Helton. Yagi hit an RBI triple in the eighth inning to score Tyler Relf, who led off the inning with a walk.

 

 

Saint Mary's scored its lone run of the game in the ninth inning after a triple and a wild pitch.

Utah plays its first home games this weekend, beginning a three-game series against California on Friday, March 15, at 6:00 p.m. at Spring Mobile Ballpark.
