Huskies Take Game One At Stanford 4-0
STANFORD, Calif. – The #5 Washington Huskies took game one of the final regular-season series, beating the Stanford Cardinal 4-0. Morganne Flores' two-run single early on was big for the Huskies, with Taryn Atlee and Sarah Willis also driving in runs.
The win was Washington's 40th on the year, the fourth consecutive full season that the Huskies have won at least 40 games. Washington is 40-9 overall and 17-4 in Pac-12 play now with three more games to play this weekend.
The Husky defense combined with Gabbie Plain's usual excellent pitching to shutout the Cardinal, allowing only four hits. Two Stanford baserunners reached scoring position in the second inning: the Cardinal would not advance past first base the rest of the game. Plain retired 13 of the final 14 batters she faced, with the only blemish, a sixth-inning single, erased on an amazing diving double play by Atlee.
Seven different Huskies had hits in the game, while eight of nine starters reached base safely in the game. Lilly Agan, Sis Bates, Sami Reynolds, and Jadelyn Allchin scored runs for the Huskies.
