Game One Goes Against Huskies 6-1

Apr 23, 2021

LOS ANGELES – The first game of a top-five series matchup went against the #4 Washington Huskies, who fell 6-1 to the #2 UCLA Bruins Friday night. The game turned on a two-out home run by UCLA that made it 3-0 in the third inning.

The loss snapped Washington's ten-game Pac-12 winning streak and put Washington's Pac-12 record at 12-3. Washington is 34-7 overall on the season.

Gabbie Plain had her program-record undefeated start come to a close, taking her first loss of the year to go to 23-1. Plain was the only pitcher in the nation with 20+ wins and no losses, with only one other pitcher recording at least 15 wins without a loss. Plain had also gone ten straight games without issuing multiple walks before walking three batters today.

Pat Moore threw the final three innings, retiring the first six batters she faced in her longest outing of 2021. This was just the second time a Pac-12 opponent has ever scored against Moore: the other came in 2018, when Washington scored three runs on Moore while she was a freshman at DePaul.


  • Third Inning: Just the second hit of the game put UCLA up 3-0. It was a homer down the rightfield line that broke the tie with two outs and two on.
  • Fourth Inning: Washington responded with a run in the next inning as a throwing error forced by some hustling Husky baserunners let Reynolds score and make it 3-1. UCLA had a sacrifice fly in the bottom half to stretch the margin back to three runs.
  • Sixth Inning: UCLA added a solo shot and an RBI single for the final 6-1 margin.


  • Sami Reynolds (0x3, R) has scored a run in five consecutive games.
  • Moore (3.0 IP, 1 ER, 1 K) has a 1.05 ERA against Pac-12 teams this year.
  • Sis Bates (1x3) has hit .438 against UCLA since the start of the 2019 season.
  • Baylee Klingler (1x2, BB) reached base safely multiple times for the 25th time this year.
  • Morganne Flores (1x3, 2B) had her 11th double, the third-most in the Pac-12.

Game two and three of the series will be tomorrow, with game three not counting in the standings as a conference game. Both of those games will air on the Pac-12 Network, with the first game beginning at 4:00 pm.
