OREM, Utah - The University of Utah baseball team ran into a red-hot pitcher Friday night at Utah Valley State. The Wolverines' Marcus Moore tossed a three-hit complete game, leading UVSC to an 18-1 victory.

Utah Valley State scored three runs in the bottom of the seventh to go on top 11-1. But the Wolverines really poured it on in the eighth, scoring seven runs. Utah Valley hit three home runs in the frame to account for the final tally.
Moore (2-2) struck out seven, walked one and allowed just one hit and one run, picking up the victory for the Wolverines. Trinnaman (0-5) suffered the loss for Utah. Derrick Thomas and Austin Heaps each had four RBIs for Utah Valley State.
