Gold Takes Series Lead With 8-5 Win

Oct. 20, 2008

The Gold team took a two-games-to-one lead in the best-of-five Husky baseball 'Fall World Series' with an 8-5 victory over the Purple squad Sunday at Husky Ballpark.

The Gold squad needed only four hits to push across eight runs, taking advantage of two errors, two walks and a couple of wild pitches.

Senior Paul Dickey, who worked three innings of scoreless relief, picked up the win. Geoff Brown worked the seventh (and final) inning for the save. Purple starter Seth Haehl allowed only seven runs (only two of them earned) in the loss.

The Gold team moved on top with a four-run first inning. A double from Ty Rasmussen drove in the first before an error allowed two more to score. A Caleb Brown groundout plated the fourth run.

In the fourth, the Gold squad scored three more: one on an error, the second on a wild pitch and the third on a Kevin Komstadius groundout. In the fifth, Doug Cherry walked and eventually scored on a wild pitch.

Ryan Scott, the Purple team's catcher, belted a three-run homer in the second inning to close the Gold lead to 4-3. In the third, the Purple went in front with two runs, one on a single from Julien Pollard and the other on a bases-loaded walk to Scott, who finished with four runs batted in.

The series continues with game four Tuesday afternoon at 3:00 p.m. Thursday's fifth and final game has been changed to a 5:00 p.m. game. Fans are welcome to attend all Fall World Series games and admission is free.
