Huskies Score Every Inning In 8-0 Win Over #4 Oregon

Apr 16, 2021

SEATTLE – The #6 Washington Huskies came out on fire en route to an 8-0 run-rule victory over the #4 Oregon Ducks on Friday night. Washington scored in every inning while Gabbie Plain struck out the first six batters she faced in her 30th career shutout. The Huskies took the lead just two batters into the game and never looked back, with 12 baserunners in four-plus innings.

This was Washington's fourth straight game over the Ducks and third straight run-rule victory over Oregon. The Huskies are now on a 26-game home winning streak. Washington moves to 32-5 on the year and 10-2 in Pac-12 play, the first team to reach ten Pac-12 wins.

Gabbie Plain was as strong as ever, with multiple strikeouts in every inning. She began the day striking out the first six batters she faced before allowing a hit and would end the day with 12 strikeouts, the most by a Husky against Oregon since Danielle Lawrie's 18 in 2009.

Washington jumped on things early and often on offense, putting the leadoff batter on in four of five innings. Sis Bates and Lilly Agan were perfect on the day, combining to go 3-for-3 with two walks and four runs scored. Both Baylee Klingler and Sami Reynolds hit homers in the game. The Huskies would chase Oregon's starter after just 1.1 innings of work. Only once all game were three Husky hitters in a row retired.

  • First Inning: Washington jumped on the board early. Bates drew a leadoff walk, then was able to walk on home when Klingler launched her 13th homer to left-center.
  • Second Inning: Bates sent a ball to leftfield that was called just foul, but no matter as the very next pitch Bates saw was dropped into left for the RBI single. A sacrifice fly by Klingler made it 4-0 one batter later.
  • Third Inning: Facing a full count to lead off the inning, Reynolds ripped a high and hard one to right-center, rounding the bases with ease on the solo shot.
  • Fourth Inning: Washington made it four straight innings with a run, picking up one on a fielding error. Back-to-back wild pitches made it 7-0, with Bates making an acrobatic slide to avoid the tag after the ball rebounded hard back to the catcher.
  • Fifth Inning: Back-to-back singles ended the game, with Kelley Lynch scoring Taryn Atlee on a hard ball into rightfield to trigger the run rule.


  • Klingler (1x2, R, HR, 3 RBI) recorded her 100th career RBI in the game.
  • Klingler is now second in the Pac-12 in overall homers and first in homers in Pac-12 play.
  • Bates (2x2, 2 R, RBI, 2 SB) is now tied for the Pac-12 lead in stolen bases without being caught stealing at 16-for-16.
  • Bates now has five multi-steal games this year, including three in the last seven games.
  • Plain (5.0 IP, 2 H, 12 K) move to fifth in Husky history in strikeouts, passing Tia Bollinger and Caitlin Noble.
  • Over her last five appearances, Plain has a 0.48 ERA, with 49 strikeouts and 11 hits allowed.
  • Reynolds (1x2, HR) has hit three homers in four career games against Oregon.

The Huskies have a doubleheader against the Ducks tomorrow, with game one set for 5:00 pm. Both of those games will air on the Pac-12 Network.
