OREM — The University of Utah baseball team avenged the 18-6 blowout loss to Utah Valley State two weeks ago with an extra-inning victory Tuesday night, winning 7-6 in 10 innings.

With two outs in the top of the 10th Joe Mozeleski drove in Jay Brossman from third base with a ground ball that dribbled through the left side. Brossman proved to be the hero of the game, scoring the game-winning run and hitting 4-for-5 five with a home run and three RBI.

Utah Valley State had a chance to end the game in the bottom of the ninth with runners on first and second with two outs, but failed to score a run for the fifth straight inning.

Brian Lane earned the victory by pitching the ninth and tenth inning for the Utes, while Jed Jensen suffered the loss after four innings of work and allowing the single run.

The game played out completely different from the meeting between the two schools two weeks ago. In that game Utah Valley State blew the game wide open in the bottom of the eighth inning, scoring ten runs and winning 18-6.

Utah lit the scoreboard first, in the top half of the first inning, after Brossman hit a solo home run, his seventh of the season, over the left-field fence to give the Utes an early 1-0 lead.

The lead wouldn't last more than a few minutes, however. The Wolverines' first three batters reached base in the bottom of the first before Trent Perry hit his 13th home run of the season, a towering shot that cleared two different fences. Eli Slesk, Utah Valley State's next batter, also scored in the inning, as Kevin Hashimoto knocked him in with a single.

Utah's starter Jason Price lasted just 2/3 of an inning, allowing all five runs (three earned).

At the end of one inning, The Wolverines led 5-1. The Utes would need the rest of the game to recover. They used it all and more.

The score would remain 5-1 until the third inning, during which the Utes scored another three runs. Ryan Khoury capped the inning with a two-run home run that sneaked over the left-centerfield wall, cutting the Wolverines' lead to just two.

After the impressive first inning, and outside of a single run in the bottom of the fourth inning, Utah Valley State failed to gain momentum throughout the rest of the game.

Utah pitchers also did well to recover, scattering just seven hits and a single run after the first inning.

Meanwhile, the Ute hitters continued to sneak up on the Wolverines. In the sixth inning, Utah's first two batters reached base before Utah Valley State escaped without allowing a run. The same could not be said for the seventh inning.

With runners on second and third with two outs Brossman again came through in the clutch, knocking in both runs with a double, and tying the game at six.

The two schools meet again Tuesday in Salt Lake City.
