UVU has a 9-12 record and will start Paxton Schultz (1-1, 5.84). BYU is 12-9 and will start Bo Burrup (1-1, 11.45). Pepperdine is 10-13. The Cougars and the Waves each have 2-4 records in the West Coast Conference.“Utah Valley is always a big game for us,” BYU coach Mike Littlewood said. “Traditionally, we haven’t played well against Pepperdine. It will be a challenge at Pepperdine because we have put ourselves in a situation where we need to beat good teams on the road.“I was proud of the way our guys played last week. We are resilient and saw some good things. We came out of our corner fighting, and that’s all I can ask of our team,” Littlewood said after an 11-game home stand.BYU will likely continue its pitching rotation at Pepperdine of having Jordan Wood (2-1, 3.43), Hayden Rogers (3-2, 5.14) and Blake Inouye (1-2, 6.04) as starters in games Thursday and Friday at 3 p.m. PDT and on Saturday at 1 p.m.The Cougars posted a 3-4 record since beating UVU 9-3 earlier this month, while the Wolverines have won four of their last six games.​ Tags: Baseball/BYU Cougars/UVU Wolverines/WCC Written by Robert Lovell March 26, 2018 /Sports News – Local BYU baseball series concludes at UVU and WCC road play beginslast_img
