Washington Walks Off to Win Series
SEATTLE, Wash. -- In a game that spanned two days, with nearly five hours of rain delays, sixth-ranked Washington walked off to win game 2 of the series, 4-2 on Sunday in the resumption of the halted game from Saturday.
After 5.5 innings were played on Saturday prior to the rain, the teams picked back up in the bottom of the sixth inning, with Washington leading 2-1. After Alyssa Denham retired the Huskies in the sixth, Arizona wasted no time in tying the game.
Janelle Meoño hit a one-out triple to left-center, her second extra-base hit of the game, to put the tying run at third with one out. Sharlize Palacios followed with an RBI single to tie the game.
In the bottom of the seventh, Denham retired the first two batters she faced before a full-count walk extended the inning for Baylee Klingler, who homered to right field to end the game.
Game 4 of the series, which was scheduled to begin 30 minutes following the end of the halted game, was canceled due to rain, meaning half of the series was wiped out due to rain. Washington which improved to 22-2 (2-0 Pac-12) won the rain-shortened series, 2-0. Arizona fell to 14-5 (0-2 Pac-12) on the season. Arizona returns home to host Oregon State in a four-game series this weekend (March 26-28) at Hillenbrand Stadium.
