Brown Pitches Gold Squad To 2-1 Win

Oct. 14, 2008

The Gold team pulled out a narrow, 2-1 win in the first game of the Husky baseball team's annual Fall World Series. This season, the series will be a best-of-five affair.

The Gold squad scored both of its runs in the first inning. After Doug Cherry walked and stole second, he scored on a two-out single from Sean Meehan, who then came across on a double from freshman Caleb Brown.

Those two runs held up throughout as the Purple squad posted its lone tally in the fourth. Brendan Gardner-Young led off that inning with a double and then eventually scored on a Troy Scott groundout.

Geoff Brown out-dueled freshman Andrew Kittredge for the win. Brown worked five two-hit innings for the victory. He didn't walk a batter and struck out four. Paul Dickey held the Purple team scoreless over the final two frames for the save.

Kittredge struck out nine in just four innings of work, allowing the two runs on three hits. Seth Haehl and Brian Pearl each worked an inning of relief for the Purple.

The series continues with game two Thursday afternoon at 3:00 p.m. at Husky Ballpark. Sunday's game three has been moved to 3:00 p.m. start as well. Fans are welcome to attend all Fall World Series games and admission is free.
