Two-Out Knocks Lead To 7-4 Husky Win
LOS ANGELES – The #4 Washington Huskies put together a clinic of two-out hitting, defeating the #2 UCLA Bruins 7-4 to even the series at one game apiece. The Huskies hit .538 with two outs, including four of Washington's five extra-base hits.
Morganne Flores and Baylee Klingler each hit two-run home runs as Washington managed 14 hits, its most of the Pac-12 season and its most since recording 16 hits in an 11-3 win over Hawai'i on March 5. Five different Huskies had multiple hits, led by Sami Reynolds' 3-for-4 day.
Washington scored runs in each of the first four innings, building the lead over and over even as UCLA chipped away with two early runs. The Huskies had baserunners in all but one inning in the game.
Gabbie Plain became the ninth Husky ever with 80 career wins, moving her season record to 24-1. After giving up runs in the first and second inning, Plain found her groove, giving up just three hits the rest of the way in the complete-game win.
