Kristin Murphy, Deseret News

PROVO, Utah – BYU baseball’s Brock Hale has been on a tear as of late, hitting two grand slams in the last three games for the Cougars.

In BYU’s 20-3 beatdown of San Francisco on Thursday, Hale blasted a bases clearing shot as part of a five-RBI effort in the game.

The Cougars dropped the second game of the series on Friday in a 9-1 loss, but came back to take the series victory with a 17-9 win on Saturday.

In the series clinching win, with the Cougars trailing 4-0 in the second inning, Hale smacked another grand slam to get his team back in the game. The Cougars also got homers from Mitch McIntyre, Casey Jacobsen and Jackson Cluff in the win on senior day.

For the season, Hale is hitting .343 with 38 RBIs and nine home runs.

BYU sits at the top of the West Coast Conference standings with a 33-14 overall record and a 17-7 mark in conference play.

The Cougars, who have been ranked in the top 25 for most of the season, will next face non-conference rival Utah on Tuesday at 6 p.m. at Smith’s Ballpark.
