BYU loss puts Lobos in search of first MWC win

The UNM softball team increased its losing streak to 10 after a 10-5 loss to BYU on Thursday.

BYU started right off the bat, bringing in four runs in the first inning. The Cougars ended the same way in the seventh. Lobo infielder Cristin Anderson knocked a homer over the left center wall in the first inning but things stalled out until the seventh. BYU pitcher Paige Affleck (21-6) held UNM to one run all the way up until the seventh, when the Lobos went on a mini-rally, scoring four runs. But they still ended five runs shy.

The Lobos started off conference play last weekend and are still searching for their first win. They are currently 10-24, 0-4 Mountain West Conference. It is not clear that the Lobos will get their first conference win at home even though Thursday’s game against BYU marked the first of eight home games.

Home stands haven’t been kind to the Lobos. They have tallied three wins at home compared to seven on the road this season. And they have lost nine of the last 10 games by at least five runs.

UNM is slated to play two games over the weekend against Utah on Friday and Saturday.
