Mooneyham (1-1), the son for former big-leaguer Bill Mooneyham, finished the game with 10 strikeouts and three walks in his seven innings of work. He took a no-hitter into the sixth inning before David Bentrott's leadoff bunt single broke it up. Drew Storen allowed a hit over the final two innings to wrap up the shutout.
The Cardinal improved to 7-11 overall and 3-3 in the Pac-10 while Washington dropped to 10-14 overall and 1-2 in the conference.

In the third, the Cardinal broke through for four runs. After at two-run triple from Toby Gerhart, Auburn High graduate Kellen Kiilsgaard belted a two-run homer to right, his sixth of the season, to make it a 5-0 game.
