Gold Takes 2-1 Series Lead With 8-1 Win

Oct. 3, 2004

SEATTLE - The Gold Team took a two-games-to-one lead in the annual Husky Baseball Fall World Series with an 8-1 win over the Purple Team in Saturday's game three at Husky Ballpark.

The win was actually good for two victories for the Gold after game two ended in a tie. It was decided after game two that the winner of game three would be credited with two wins.

Saturday, senior lefty David Dowling threw six shutout innings to lift the Gold to the win. He allowed five hits and two walks while fanning six. Senior third baseman Nick Batkoski was the Gold's top hitter, going 3-for-4 with two runs, two RBI, a double and a home run.

First baseman Kyle Larsen and DH Josh Showers each added two hits for the Gold, which scored runs in every inning other than the first of the seven-inning game. Freshman Kiel Lillibridge had a single, a walk and a sacrifice fly in three plate appearances.

The Purple scored its lone run when freshman Matt Stevens led off the seventh inning with a solo home run.

Game four of the intrasquad series was set for Sunday afternoon. Game five is Monday at 7:00 p.m. and, after a day off on Tuesday, games six and seven will begin at 7:00 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday at Husky Ballpark.
