Gold Comes Back To Win Game Four, 5-4

Oct. 4, 2004

SEATTLE - The Gold Team took a three-games-to-one lead in the annual UW baseball intrasquad 'Fall World Series' Sunday with a come-from-behind win over the Purple.

The Purple team struck for four runs in the third inning as five straight players reached base off of Gold starter Josh Conover. Brent Lillibridge hit a one-out single to get it started and then scored on a Taylor Johnson double. After a single from Curt Rindal put two runners aboard, Johnson scored on a single from catcher Matt Lane. Freshman third baseman Matt Stevens followed wtih a two-run single to give his team the four-run edge.

However, in the bottom of the fourth, with Zach Clem aboard on a single, senior second baseman Nick Batkoski got the Purple back into the game with his second home run in as many games. Then in the fifth, a two-run single from Clem tied the game before a two-out RBI double from Batkoski gave the Purple its first lead.

After allowing the four runs, Conover settled down enough to throw five innings for the win. Kyle Parker struck out four in two perfect innings of work for the save in the seven-inning contest.

Purple starter Jordan Ponzoha suffered the loss.

Batkoski finished 2-for-3 with three runs batted in while Clem was also 2-for-3 with a pair of RBI. Lillibridge led the Gold with two hits, a run and a stolen base.

Game five of the seven-game series is Monday evening at 7:00 p.m. After a day off on Tuesday, the series concludes with game six Wednesday and game seven Thursday, both set to start at 7:00 p.m.
