Plain Throws Sixth Career No-Hitter

May 7, 2021

SEATTLE – Gabbie Plain recorded her sixth career no-hitter, allowing just one baserunner via walk in an 8-0 win over the Utah Utes Friday. Plain retired the first 11 batters she faced, striking out ten as the Huskies won by run-rule in six innings.

Plain's six career no-hitters include two perfect games and three no-hitters with just one baserunner allowed. This is the second time in her career she has no-hit Utah, throwing a perfect game against the Utes in 2018. Plain joins Danielle Lawrie and Stephanie Burns as the only Huskies ever to throw multiple no-hitters against Pac-12 opponents in their careers.

Washington's offense was locked in as well, scoring five runs before Utah could record five outs in the game. The Huskies had baserunners in all but one inning and had multiple baserunners in four of the six innings.

Baylee Klingler went a perfect 4-for-4 at the plate, her second career four-hit game. Sis Bates reached three times, with two walks and a hit, scoring twice. Kelley Lynch had a two-hit day, scoring a run and driving in another. Morganne Flores' two-run double with two outs in the bottom of the sixth ended the game by run-rule and gave her three RBI in the game.

  • First Inning: Klingler just missed an opposite-field homer, hitting a ball hard off the top of the wall by the rightfield foul pole. That allowed Bates to hustle in from second for the game's first run. Klingler would score one batter later on a sacrifice fly.
  • Second Inning: An error put Washington's leadoff batter on, then a rocket of a double by Lynch took care of the rest, making it 3-0. Allchin's RBI single just inside of first base chased Utah's starter from the game, with Klingler's second RBI hit of the day stretching the lead to 5-0 through two.
  • Sixth Inning: Klingler blooped her fourth hit of the day into shallow centerfield to make it 6-0. Flores followed that up with a hard-hit double off the wall, scoring the game's final two runs to end the 8-0 shutout win.


  • Plain (6.0 IP, 1 BB, 10 K) recorded her 14th double-digit strikeout game of the year. Only Danielle Lawrie in 2010 has had more double-digit strikeout games in a single season.
  • Plain also recorded her 25th win, becoming the fourth pitcher under Heather Tarr to win 25+ games in a season.
  • Plain has shutout Utah in four of her five appearances against the Utes.
  • In seven games against schools located in Utah this year, Plain has a 0.18 ERA and 0.44 WHIP.
  • Sarah Willis (1x3, R) now has hits in four of the five games in which she has an at-bat this year.
  • Washington is 29-1 in its last 30 home games.
  • Klingler (4x4, R, 2B, 3 RBI) has scored 18 runs and driven in 19 in 15 career games at Husky Softball Stadium.
  • This was Klingler's fifth game this season reaching base in every plate appearance.

Game two and three of the series will be tomorrow, with the first game of that doubleheader starting at 1:00 pm.
