Purple Wins Game Five, 7-3, To Cut Gold's Series Lead

Oct. 6, 2004

SEATTLE - In Monday's game five of the annual UW Baseball Fall World Series, the Purple Team cut the Gold's series lead to 3-2 with a 7-3 win.

Taylor Johnson and Curt Rindal each drove in four runs for the Purple, who scored four in the third to break a 0-0 tie. In the third, after Brent Lillibridge had singled home one run, Johnson doubled to drive in two more.

Left fielder Adam Patchett tripled and scored to lead off the Purple fourth.

Zach Clem starred offensively for the Gold, finishing 2-for-3 with two doubles, two runs and a stolen base. Senior Nick Batkoski continued his hot hitting, batting 2-for-3 with a pair of RBI.

Purple starter Brandon McKerney left the game in the second inning due to a blister, so freshman classmate Matt Hague came on to get the win, allowing three runs while fanning five over three and one-third innings. Sophomore Tim Lincecum, recovering from a slight ankle sprain, made his first appearance of the seven-game intrasquad series, striking out two in a perfect seventh inning.

Gold starter Hunter Hughes suffered the loss, surrendering five runs over three innings.

The series, and the fall practice season, concludes with game six Wednesday and game seven Thursday, both set to start at 7:00 p.m.
