No. 10 Washington (3-2) exploded for 11 runs in the first four innings, which proved to be plenty for starter Noah Bremer, as he threw six shutout innings and the Huskies routed host St. Mary's, 11-1, Friday at Louis Guisto Field in Moraga, Calif.
No. 10 Washington (2-2) jumped out to a 3-0 lead before St. Mary's even stepped to the plate, but the host Gaels (3-0) rallied in the middle innings for a 6-5 win in the first game of a four-game series at Louis Guisto Field in Moraga, California.
Washington (2-1) dodged raindrops long enough during its opening weekend to play three games in two days at Santa Clara. The Huskies won twice and lost once, but were unable to get in a scheduled fourth game after being rained out three times over five days. The Huskies move across the Bay to Moraga where they will be hosted by St. Mary's (2-0) for a four-game series starting Thursday and running through Sunday. All four games will be played in the day.
For the third time during their first road series of the year, the Huskies have been postponed. Tuesday's game against Santa Clara was canceled due to poor field conditions and the game will not be made up. The 10th-ranked Huskies ended up winning two-of-three games against the Broncos.
Game four of the series between Washington and Santa Clara scheduled for Monday at 6:00 p.m. has been postponed due to heavy rain in California. The two teams will try to play the game on Tuesday at 6:00 p.m.
A pair of freshmen came through big for the 12th-ranked Huskies as they beat Santa Clara, 8-1, Sunday afternoon at Stephen Schott Stadium. Catcher Nick Kahle drove in five runs and pitcher Jordan Jones stuck out nine batters over six innings to pick up the win in his first collegiate start and give the Huskies a 2-1 advantage in the four-game series.
