Huskies Drop Bruins, 4-1

April 2, 2006

Seattle - Washington used two home runs to get past UCLA, 4-1, on Sunday afternoon at Husky Ballpark. The loss drops the Bruins to 16-13 overall and 1-2 in the Pac-10, while the Huskies improve to 20-11 and 3-3 in the Pac-10 on the season.

Senior Sean Smith went 1-for-3 with a run scored, and senior Josh Roenicke went 1-for-3 with a RBI on a sacrifice fly.

Junior Tyson Brummett (4-4) tossed 5.1 innings with four strikeouts, giving up three runs on six hits in a losing effort.

UW got on the board first with a lead off solo home run by Curt Rindal in the second inning to go up 1-0.

UCLA loaded the bases with one out in the third inning but came up empty handed. Freshman Brandon Crawford reached on a fielder's choice, senior Chris Jensen singled through the right side, and junior Tim Stewart walked to give the Bruins multiple runners on base for the first time in the series. Junior Hector Ambriz then grounded into a 6-4-3 double play on a full count to end the threat.

The Huskies added another run in the fourth inning on a RBI single to left field by Matt Stevens to go up 2-0 on the Bruins.

UCLA scrapped for a run in the fifth inning to put the score at 2-1. Smith led the inning off with a single to center field, followed by a single to left center by Eric Taylor, Jr. that advanced Smith to third base. Roenicke then drilled a sacrifice fly to center field to score Smith from third and give the Bruins their only run of the ballgame.

Stevens put the Huskies up 4-1 in the sixth inning with a two-run home run to dead-center field off of freshman Jason Novak who pitched in relief of junior starter Tyson Brummett.

UCLA will return home to Los Angeles to host UC Irvine on Tuesday, April 4 at Jackie Robinson Stadium. Game time is set for 6 p.m.
