One day after lasting just two-thirds of an inning against the Sun Devils, Macon came back to strike out nine while allowing seven hits and three walks to improve to 14-6 on the season.
The Huskies (25-14-1, 4-5 Pac-10) scored a pair of runs with two outs in the first inning for a quick 2-0 lead. Washington strung together three straight hits off of ASU All-America pitcher Katie Burkhart in the inning, with Morgan Stuart delivering a two-RBI single.
With two outs, Ashlyn Watson singled to the shortstop and Alicia Blake followed with a double to right centerfield to put runners on second an third. Stuart then brought both players home with a single to left field.
Watson went 2-for-4 in the game, while Blake finished 2-for-3. Stuart's two RBI gives her a team-leading 35 on the season.
Both Burkhart and the Sun Devils (44-3, 8-1 Pac-10) suffered just their third loss of the year. Burkhart (25-3) gave up six hits and three earned runs in a complete-game effort. She struck out 11 and walked none.
