Two Klingler Homers Help Huskies Win 6-5
LAS VEGAS – The #2 Washington Huskies won a dramatic one in their second game Friday, beating Dixie State 6-5 on a walkoff walk from SilentRain Espinoza. Washington trailed late twice, only for homers from Baylee Klingler to change the game each time.
It was a heart-pumping finish as the Huskies trailed by two runs with two outs in the seventh, only for Klingler's second homer of the day to tie the game. A hit by pitch and back-to-back walks would bring in the winning run for the Huskies, who put five straight runners on base after the second out in the seventh.
This was Klingler's second career multi-homer game. The junior's first homer gave Washington a 2-1 lead headed to the seventh, then her second home tied the game back up at 5-5 in the bottom of the seventh with two outs.
Washington will play another two games tomorrow, facing off with Southern Utah at 10:00 am and tournament host UNLV at 3:00 pm. Both those games will be shown live via the UNLV live stream.
