Washington's Offense Excells in Double-header
April 5, 2005
SEATTLE, Wash.-The Washington softball team's offense shined in it's double-header match-up with Simon Fraser of Tuesday afternoon. The Huskies outscored the Clan 16-0 in the two games combined, winning the first game five-to-zero and the second game 11-0.
In game one, Kristen Rivera got the Huskies started by driving in Ashley Charters with an RBI single to left field. The hit broke a seven game hitless streak for the Washington stand-out hitter. A Sarah Hyatt groundout advanced Rivera to third on the next at bat, while Amee Minor would follow with an RBI single to bring her home. After a two run first inning, Washington never looked back as they would finish the game shutting out Simon Fraser five-to-zero.
In the second game of the double-header, the Huskies came out strong again in the first inning, producing three runs on a Sarah Hyatt home run to left field. The second inning proved to be the decisive inning, however, highlighted by an Aimee Minor grand slam with two outs in the inning, closing the door on any hope of a Clan comeback. Minor's grand slam marked her second of the year and her 11th home run of the season.
In front of a crowd of 414 people, Washington posted a combined total of 15 hits in the two games, compared to only four by Simon Fraser.
Picking up the two wins, Washington moves to 19-11 on the season. The Huskies now travel to California to take on the Golden Bears in a Pac-10 match-up on April 8. Washington returns home on April 15 to host the Arizona Wildcats.
