Huskies Take Two From Nevada With Record-Setting Day

April 24, 2005

RENO, Nev. - The Huskies (24-15) pounded 38 hits against Nevada (21-23) in a double header this afternoon to cruise to 22-1 and 14-0 five-inning mercy-rule victories at Idlewild Park. Washington had 24 hits, including six home runs in the first game, setting school records in both categories. Senior Kathy Fiske also hit her fifth career grand slam to set a UW record.

In the opening game, the Huskies used a first inning grand slam by Fiske to get on top 4-0. Washington scored 14 runs on 11 hits in the second inning, batting around the order twice. The Huskies hit three home runs in the frame, including shots by Kristen Rivera, Aimee Minor and Jacki Hansen. Hansen, Dominique Lastrapes and Lauren Greer also had doubles in the inning.

Wolf Pack reliever Robyn Ford-Feitz held Washington to no runs in the third frame but the Huskies scored two runs in the each of the last two innings with home runs by Callie Bergan and Fiske.

Nevada scored one run off of UW reliever Caitlin Noble in the fifth with a RBI-double by Brittany Lorenzen but Noble closed out the game with a pop-up and ground out.

Ashley Boek (13-8) earned the win as she scattered three hits over three innings and struck out six.

Washington tallied 14 hits in the nightcap en route to the 14-0 victory.

Freshman Torie Coury got the Huskies on board with a two-run home run over the centerfield fence.

Washington added another run in the third frame with a RBI-double by Minor to score pinch runner Jessica Wilkinson.

The Huskies scored three runs in the fourth inning to take the 6-0 lead. Hansen led off with a walk and stole second base. Ashley Charters sacrificed her to third and Lastrapes singled to the shortstop to score Hansen. The Wolf Pack intentionally walked Rivera and Minor blasted a two-run double to centerfield.

Washington put the game out of reach in the fifth, scoring eight runs on six hits. The Huskies hit three home runs in the inning, including a homer by Rivera and back-to-back home runs by Greer and Bergan.

Noble (11-7) picked up the win and her fifth shutout of the season. She held Nevada to two hits and struck out 10 batters for her ninth double-figure strikeout performance of the year.

Rivera's pair of home runs today brings her career total to 72. She is one home run away from school record holder Jaime Clark who hit 73 home runs from 2000-03.

Bergan (5-for-7) and Fiske (5-for-9) each had five hits today, while Greer (4-for-6), Hansen (4-for-4), Lastrapes (4-for-8) and Minor (4-for-7) had four apiece. Fiske and Minor each drove in six runs.

The Huskies return to Seattle for four Pac-10 games next week. Washington opens against UCLA on Wednesday at 1 pm and will take on Stanford on Friday and California on Saturday and Sunday.
