May 4, 2008
LOS ANGELES - Kyle Conley went 2-for-3 with four RBI while Andy Lentz went 5-for-5 with an RBI Sunday as the Washington Huskies completed a Pac-10 Conference series sweep in the 11-4 win over the host USC Trojans. Conley was 8-for-10 on the weekend with three doubles, two home runs and nine RBI.
Washington is now 28-16 overall and 8-7 in Pac-10 play while USC is 21-25 overall, 7-11 in conference.
Nick Haughian threw five innings, allowing one unearned run on two hits for the Huskies. Washington chased USC starter Ryan Cook in the fourth after he gave up six runs on seven hits.
The Huskies scored three runs in the first when Cook loaded the bases before hitting Brian Pearl with a pitch to force in a run and Troy Scott added a two-run single for the 3-0 lead. After a run in the second, Conley's two-run double made it a 6-0 advantage in the fourth to take control of the game.
USC sophomore shortstop Grant Green (Anaheim Hills/Canyon HS) set the school career record with his 14th triple, passing the mark of 13 held by Mark Smith (1989-91) and Seth Davidson (1998-2001). Sophomore Billy Pinkerton registered his first collegiate home run with a solo shot for the Trojans.
