The games on Friday and Saturday will be streamed, but Sunday will not have a stream.
THOMPSON HAS THREE RBI IN WIN
Tyler Thompson had a great start to the season hitting a team-leading .333 in the opening weekend.
On Sunday, he went 2-5 with two doubles with one of them clearing the bases. His three RBI in the game was a career high and helped Utah clinch their first win of the season.
TRANSFERS MAKE MARK
Matthew Sox, a transfer from Whitman, entered in relief against CS Fullerton and helped the Utes get out of a jam allowing him to get his first win at Utah.
To preserve the win, Brayson Hurdsman came in and pitched the final 2.1 innings to get his first save in a Utah uniform. Hurdsman transferred from Houston with plenty of experience under his belt and should be a staple at the back end of the bullpen for the season.
KAI ROBERTS MAKES STRONG DEBUT
Kai Roberts started all three games at third base for Utah on the opening weekend. He had a productive time in the field and at the plate.
Roberts hit .300 in the opening weekend scoring two runs with three hits.
In the final play on Monday, he made a great play at third to the throw the runner out to secure the 6-5 win over CS Fullerton.
The Utes will play a familiar foe in Phoenix, Ariz. against Arizona State. It will be a non-conference three-game series beginning Friday, March 5.
