Purple Wins, 14-12; Series Goes To Game Seven

Oct. 8, 2005

SEATTLE - The Purple team held out for a 14-12 win as the two sides in the annual intrasquad 'Fall World Series' will have to decide the series with a seventh game, today at Husky Ballpark. Game six had originally been scheduled for Thursday, but was rained out.

The Purple evened the series at three wins apiece thanks to some impressive offense from several different players. Junior transfer Jesse Ferguson went 3-for-4 with three runs, a homer and a double while freshman Jake Rife was 1-for-2 with a homer, two walks and three runs scored. Senior Brian Bauer added a homer, three runs and three RBI.

Trailing 3-0 after an inning, the Purple scored three in the second, two in the third and two in the fourth to take a lead for good. Starter Matt Kasser, who settled down after allowing three in the first, earned the win. Gold starter Kyle Carson allowed five runs in the loss.

Freshman Brett Kaluza led the Gold with three hits, a walk and three runs in four at bats. Matt Stevens homered for the Gold.

The seven-game fall series comes down to a decisive game seven today (Saturday) at Husky Ballpark. Game time is 2:00 p.m. and admission, as always, is free.
