Huskies Cap Off Senior Day With Win Over Utah

May 23, 2021

SEATTLE -- The Washington Huskies provided their graduating seniors with a positive final memory of Husky Ballpark, defeating the Utah Utes by a score of 6-5 on Sunday afternoon.

On a day where the Husky program honored 13 graduating seniors and had six of them in the starting lineup, UW got out to an early lead and was able to hold on. 

"It's good to send those guys off with a good memory," head coach Lindsay Meggs said. "It was the last game they'll ever play at home, so that was special for us. We were happy for them."

With Adam Bloebaum getting the start, he got immediate run support from seniors Braiden Ward and Ramon Bramasco. After Ward singled into left field, he stole his 86th career base, which puts him all alone in second place all-time for Washington. After going to third on a wild pitch, Ward would score on an RBI groundout from Bramasco to make it 1-0. 

The Huskies would put together a two-out rally in the third with Noah Hsue on second base. Christian Jones doubled the lead with a single into right field. Michael Snyder then singled into right field and with Jones headed to third base, the throw got away and allowed Jones to score and Snyder to go to second. Preston Viltz then singled in Snyder for his third RBI of the series to put UW up 4-0. 

The Utes would get on the board with a solo home run in the fifth, but the Huskies had a quick answer, as Kaiser Weiss singled into left field to score Michael Snyder and give UW a 5-1 lead. 

Utah would keep the pressure on and score three runs in the sixth and seventh to make it a one-run game. In the seventh, the Utes had runners on first and second with two outs and a single into left field was primed to score the tying run. Kaiser Weiss had other ideas, as he threw out the Utah runner at home plate, with Michael Petrie making a great tag to preserve the lead. 

"Kaiser can throw, it's one of his plus tools. It's one thing to be able to do it, it's another thing to do it when it matters and he did it, which was good," Meggs said. 

Michael Snyder would provide a huge run as he launched his first career home run to push the Husky lead to 6-4 in the bottom of the seventh.

While the Utes would get another run back in the eighth, Davis Delorefice picked up his second save of the series to clinch the win and the series for UW.
