Rally Falls Short In 4-1 Loss To Stanford

May 14, 2021

STANFORD, Calif. – The #5 Washington Huskies couldn't ignite the offense in game one today, falling 4-1 to the Stanford Cardinal in the conference game of the doubleheader. This was Washington first loss to Stanford since 2017.

Washington goes to 40-10 with today's loss and 17-5 in Pac-12 play. While this eliminates the Huskies from Pac-12 championship contention, the Huskies have clinched second place in the conference.

Noelle Hee had the only RBI for the Huskies, ripping a hard single off the centerfield wall in the sixth inning. Baylee Klingler had two hits, including a double. Morganne Flores also had a hit in the game, singling in the sixth.

Gabbie Plain fell to 28-2 on the season with the loss. Plain retook the national lead in strikeouts today despite taking the loss, striking out three in the complete game.

  • Second Inning: Stanford's first two hits of the day came back-to-back, giving it a 1-0 lead. A throwing error would make it 2-0.
  • Sixth Inning: With two outs, Hee ripped a ball off the centerfield wall, allowing Megan Vandegrift to score from first. Stanford would answer with a two-run home run through, stretching the lead to 4-1.


  • Flores (1x3) extended her hitting streak to six games, hitting .474.
  • Klingler (2x3, 2B) has hits in 11 of the last 12 games, with multiple hits in three of the last four.
  • Plain (6.0 IP, 6 H, 3 ER, 3 K) is now holding the first batter she faces in games to 3-for-33 hitting, including a 2-for-26 mark in starts.
  • Hee (1x3, RBI) now has a four-game hitting streak and hits in six of the last seven.

The regular season wraps up tomorrow as the Huskies play Stanford one last time, at 3:00 pm on the Pac-12 Network.
