Ryan Scott's Two Homers Lead Purple To Series Win

Oct. 24, 2008

SEATTLE - The Purple team won the Husky baseball team's annual 'Fall World Series' in a deciding game five Thursday at Husky Ballpark, beating the Gold team, 7-2.

Senior lefty Tyler Cheney threw five shutout innings for the victory, allowing only three hits and striking out five, as the Purple won the series, three games to two.

Purple team leadoff hitter Brendan Gardner-Young singled and scored on a Troy Scott double in the first inning to give his team a lead it never let slip.

In the fourth, senior Ryan Scott belted a two-run homer, the first of his two home runs in the game, to make it 3-0.

In the seventh, RBI singles from Kyle Conley and Troy Scott, plus a run-scoring error, gave the Purple team three more and Ryan Scott's solo homer in the eighth capped the scoring.

The Gold team scored its first run in the sixth as Doug Cherry was hit by a pitch and eventually scored on a single from Caleb Brown. In the seventh, Aaron Russell singled and scored on a single from Brady McGuire. Russell went 3-for-4 in the game.

Purple closer Brian Pearl worked two innings, retiring all six batters he faced, including five by strikeout. Gold starter Geoff Brown took the loss, working five innings.

With game five in the books, the Huskies' fall practice season has come to an end. The Diamond Dawgs, under 17th-year head coach Ken Knutson, open the 2009 regular season with a four-game series at reigning NCAA champion Fresno State next Feb. 20-22.
