Albuquerque, N.M.--Led by Lynsey Wall's two home runs, Utah knocked in 10 runs off 11 hits to defeat New Mexico 10-7 on Sunday afternoon. The win gave the Utes a doubleheader sweep of the Lobos and moves Utah to 14-19 overall and 3-3 in conference play.
It was a day of offense at the ballpark for both teams. While Utah knocked 11 hits, New Mexico connected for 14. Four Utes parked home runs in the victory, including two by Lynsey Wall.
The Utes opened the game with a run in the first off a homer by Niki Hayhurst. Utah added two more in the second after Wall blasted her first home run of the day, 3-0. New Mexico answered in the latter of the inning with four runs to take a 4-3 lead. The Lobos padded the lead with two more in the third.
In the top of the fourth, Utah brought in four runs to regain the lead, 7-6. Jackie Wong ripped a single to right field to bring in Ivette Hernandez, who had walked. Hayhurst earned her second RBI after her single scored Sarah Lyman, who had also walked. Utah rounded out the scoring when a double by Glennis Donnelly plated two.
New Mexico tied the game in the bottom of the fourth with a single run. Utah then answered with single home runs in the fifth, sixth and seventh innings to secure the 10-7 victory. In the fifth it was Herndez, in the sixth Melissa Stahnke and in the seventh Wall.
Wall continued her hot streak in Albuquerque. The freshman finished with three home runs, seven RBI and four runs scored in the two games.
Up next, Utah travels to Las Vegas to face UNLV on April 18 and then to San Diego to battle San Diego State on April 19.
