TEMPE, Ariz. – The #6 Washington Huskies handed the #14 Arizona State Sun Devils their worst loss since 2019, rolling to an 11-1 run-rule victory in five innings. Washington hit four homers for the second game in a row while allowing only five baserunners. The win moves Washington to 24-4 on the year and 3-2 in Pac-12 play.

Baylee Klinger, Sami Reynolds, Morganne Flores, and Noelle Hee all homered, with Klingler and Flores homering for the second game in a row. Hee and Sis Bates each had three-hit days. Eight different Huskies scored runs in the game.
