Another Plain Gem Leads Huskies To 6-1 Win
SAN DIEGO – The #5 Washington Huskies began the weekend with a win, taking down San Diego State 6-1. Baylee Klingler and SilentRain Espinoza each had three hits for the Dawgs. Klingler and Sis Bates led the way with two RBI each.
It was another virtuoso performance from Gabbie Plain in the circle, who struck out 12 and allowed only three hits. Plain gave up a run in the first inning, then allowed just three more baserunners all game long. The senior would end the night retiring seven straight, even striking out the side in the sixth.
Washington never trailed in the game, taking the lead just four batters in. The Huskies would use another late-inning surge to put the game away: this time, Washington score four runs in the sixth inning of what was then a 2-1 game to secure the win. San Diego State would not put another runner on base after that offensive push from the Huskies.
Washington will play San Diego State one more time tomorrow, at 1:00 pm. That game will be streamed live via YouTube.
