Ballint strikes out nine, but Aztecs muster only one hit in loss to BYU

San Diego State softball kicked off the 30th annual Campbell/Cartier Classic with a 3-0 loss against Brigham Young University on Thursday night at SDSU Softball Stadium.

The game was a “good old fashion pitchers’ duel” as Aztecs head coach Kathy Van Wyk described.

Oregon transfer Maggie Balint made her first appearance in the circle on the Mesa. The junior pitcher came out strong with five quick strikeouts in the first two innings.

The first hit of the game did not come until the top of the fifth inning when BYU senior outfielder Rylee Jensen-McFarland put her team on the board with an RBI single to left field.
