Rickard, Stevens Homer As Gold Wins Game Two, 4-3

Sept. 28, 2005

SEATTLE - The Gold team took a two-games-to-none lead in the annual UW baseball Fall World Series, beating the Purple team, 4-3, Tuesday afternoon at Husky Ballpark.

The Gold squad took a 3-1 lead in the bottom of the third inning on a three-run homer from senior right fielder Cory Rickard. The Purple tied the game at 3-3 in the eighth on a two-run shot from freshman DH Kyle Conley, but a solo homer in the bottom of the eighth from sophomore third baseman Matt Stevens proved the game-winner.

Sophomore Andrew Powell, who allowed two runs over three innings, got the victory for the Gold. Starter Adrian Gomez didn't figure in the decision despite surrendering only one run on three hits over five innings. Matt Hague got the final out in the ninth to pick up a save.

Reliever Jason Erickson, who gave up Steven's homer in the eighth, suffered the loss for the Purple despite allowing only that one run over two and one-third innings. Starter Matt Kasser allowed three runs on five hits over five innings.

Stevens finished the game 2-for-3 with two runs and a walk while the Purple got two hits each from Kiel Lillibridge, Nick Burnham and Conley.

The seven-game fall series continues with game three Saturday afternoon at 3:00 p.m. at Husky Ballpark. Admission is free to all seven Fall World Series games. Here's the remaining schedule for the Fall World Series: Saturday, Oct. 1, at 3 p.m.; Sunday, Oct. 2 at 3 p.m.; Tuesday, Oct. 4 at 6:30 p.m.; Thursday, Oct. 6 at 3:30 p.m.; Saturday, Oct. 8 at 2 p.m.
