Offense Rolls In 11-4 Senior Day Win
SEATTLE – The offense blew up in the third inning as the #5 Washington Huskies finished off the sweep of the Utah Utes with an 11-4 win. Washington had 11 baserunners in the third and fourth innings after starting the game 1-for-7 to build a big lead. The win gave Washington a four-game sweep in the series against Utah.
Washington improves to 39-9 with the win and 16-4 in Pac-12 play. The Huskies finish their regular-season home schedule with a 17-1 record at Husky Softball Stadium.
Eight different Huskies scored runs, including seven of nine starters. Eight of Washington's nine starters had hits in the game as Washington mashed 13 hits, including seven extra-base hits. Sami Reynolds, Baylee Klingler, Kelley Lynch, and Kaija Gibson all had multiple RBI, led by Reynolds' three.
Gabbie Plain threw six innings in the circle, giving up four hits and one run. Three of those four hits came in the second inning: Plain retired 12 of the 13 batters she faced outside of that inning.
