Purple Evens Series at 3-3 With 7-1 Win

Oct. 7, 2004

SEATTLE - Three pitchers held the Gold Team to one run on two hits as the Purple Team drew even in UW Baseball's annual 'Fall World Series' with a 7-1 win Wednesday evening at Husky Ballpark. The seven-game intrasquad series, which ends Thurdsay, Oct. 7, is now square at three wins each.

Tim Lincecum, in his first start of the series after shaking off a minor ankle injury, allowed only two hits and a run over three and two-thirds innings before Emmanuel Pedroza (who go the win) and Jordan Ponzoha came on to hold the Gold squad hitless over the final three and one-third.

Lincecum flew through the first two and one-third innings before allowing his first baserunner of the fall (in all scrimmage situations), a walk to Ryan Anderson with one down in the third. Lincecum then allowed the Gold's lone run in the fourth, walking Brett Kilborn with the bases loaded.

The Purple, however, scored in four of their six at bats in the seven-inning game. In the first, Brent Lillibridge, who finished 3-for-4, singled and scored. In the fourth, the Purple re-took the lead when Mike Rundle singled and scored. In the fifth, a two-run single from catcher Matt Lane broke the game open.

Finally, in the bottom of the sixth, the Purple put the game away with three runs. Andy Lentz tripled to lead off and scored on a sacrifice fly from fellow freshman Matt Stevens. Back-to-back doubles from freshman Matt Hague and Lillibridge posted another run and Lillibridge scored on a single from Taylor Johnson.

The series, and the fall practice season, concludes with game seven Thursday. First pitch for the final game is set for 7:00 p.m.
