Power Bats Keep Rolling, Huskies Win 8-4
SEATTLE – The #6 Washington Huskies kept up their recent power displays, beating the California Golden Bears 8-4. Morganne Flores and Baylee Klingler each homered, making it four consecutive games that each of those players has homered, all against Pac-12 opponents and all in Husky wins.
The Huskies have now won five consecutive Pac-12 series against Cal, dating back to 2016. Washington's win was its tenth straight against Cal and makes the Huskies 26-4 on the season, including a 5-2 mark in Pac-12 play.
All five of Washington's first five batters in the lineup scored runs, combining for seven of Washington's eight runs. Klingler led the way with three runs as well as three walks, reaching base in all four of her plate appearances. Flores drove in three runs, while Noelle Hee went a perfect 2-for-2 with a walk and a sac fly.
Gabbie Plain improved to 16-0 on the year with another complete game victory, the best start by a Husky since Danielle Lawrie's school-record 18-0 start in 2010. No other pitcher in the nation has double-digit victories without suffering a loss. Plain is now just one win off the national lead as well.
