Washington Powers Way To 10-2 Win Over USC
May 3, 2008
LOS ANGELES - Brett Wilcox went 3-for-5 with a double, home run and six RBI while Kyle Conley hit two home runs Saturday as the Washington Huskies beat the USC Trojans, 10-2, in a Pac-10 Conference game at Dedeaux Field.
Conley went 2-for-3 with three RBI and is 6-for-7 this weekend for Washington (27-16, 7-7). Cam Nobles (4-3) allowed two runs on five hits in five innings while Paul Dickey earned his fifth save with four scoreless innings in relief, giving up just two hits.
Brad Boxberger suffered the loss for USC (21-24, 7-10) after giving up six hits on six runs in five innings. He struck out the side in the first, but fell into trouble after that and allowed four walks.
Sophomore Keith Castillo (Huntington Beach/Mater Dei HS) hit his first collegiate home run for the Trojans, clubbing a solo shot in the second as the team's designated hitter. Castillo and teammate Mike O'Neill both recorded two hits in the game while Grant Green's career-high 19-game hitting streak was halted after an 0-for-3 day.
