May 22, 2004
SEATTLE, WA - UCLA (30-26, 11-9) was unable to claim its second straight victory over first-place and 14th-ranked Washington (34-17-1, 15-8) on Saturday, falling 7-2 at Husky Ballpark.
Washington starter Tim Lincecum picked up his ninth win of the season, holding UCLA to seven hits and no runs over the first eight innings.
Bruin starter David Johnson had a solid outing, despite suffering the loss and dropping to 2-3 on the season. He struck out six batters and scattered five hits over five innings.
After posting two in the first and one in the fifth, Washington scored four runs in the sixth to take a 7-0 lead on the Bruins. Two Husky home runs, a three run homer from Clem and a solo round tripper from Matt Lane, would bring the four runs home.
In the ninth, UCLA got on the board when Jarrad Page hit what appeared to be a three-run home run. However, Page passed Will Penniall between first and second and was called out. Penniall, who had singled, and Brandon Averill, who had walked both scored on the play.
Nine different Bruins recorded hits on the day as UCLA out-hit the Huskies, 10-7. Page ended the day with two hits and two RBI.
The Bruins and Huskies will wrap-up their three game series tomorrow in a 1:00 match-up. Left-hander Wes Whisler (2-4) will start on the mound for UCLA.
