Plain Throws Sixth Career No-Hitter
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.
B5 | This K gives Plain her 14th double-digit strikeout game of the season, the second-most in a single season in UW history!
