Huskies Force Winner-Take-All Game With 2-0 Win

May 23, 2021

SEATTLE – The Washington Huskies forced a winner-take-all game seven at Regionals, defeating the Michigan Wolverines 2-0 Sunday. The Huskies scored both their runs early, on a Morganne Flores homer in the first inning and a Jadelyn Allchin RBI double in the second. That was all Washington needed, as Gabbie Plain and the Husky defense held Michigan to just two hits.

Plain was near unhittable today: after allowing a single on the first pitch of the game, Plain would not allow another hit until the sixth inning. Washington allowed only two Wolverines to reach scoring position all game long.

Michigan's best chance came in the sixth inning, when a single and a walk put two on with one out and the middle of the order coming out. Plain stayed her usual calm self, getting Michigan's three- and four-hole hitters to knock routine groundouts and keep the shutout in place. Plain would come back out for the seventh and retire Michigan in order to seal the win.

  • First Inning: Flores' second homer of the weekend went to dead center, giving Washington the lead three batters into the game. It was Flores' 11th career postseason home run.
  • Second Inning: The bottom of the order came through big for the Huskies: Willis reached via error, then would motor all the way around from first to score on Allchin's line-drive double to make it 2-0.


  • Flores (2x3, HR) joins Kristen Rivera and Jaime Clark as the only Huskies ever with 60+ homers in their careers.
  • Flores has hit .416 with a double and two home runs this weekend.
  • Since going hitless in her postseason debut as a freshman, Baylee Klingler (1x4) has hits in six straight postseason games.
  • Plain (7.0 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 3 BB, 8 K) has three shutouts in her last four starts.
  • Plain passed Jennifer Spediacci for the most strikeouts in a single season by any Husky other than Danielle Lawrie and now has 322 on the season.
  • In eight career Regionals appearances, Plain has six shutouts.

Washington advances to Super Regionals and will face Oklahoma in Norman, Oklahoma.
