Washington Earns Fifth Straight Supers Berth
SEATTLE – The Washington Huskies had a huge fourth inning to turn the game around and carry the team to Super Regionals, beating the Michigan Wolverines 10-5. Washington scored seven runs in the fourth inning, the second-biggest inning of the year for the Huskies, after falling behind 5-1 early on.
Washington advances to the Super Regionals for the fifth straight year with the win. The Huskies will face #1 Oklahoma next weekend in Oklahoma with a berth in the Women's College World Series on the line.
Seven different Huskies drove in runs, led by Kelley Lynch's three RBI and Madison Huskey's two. Nine different Huskies had hits as well as Washington smacked 13 hits and put 16 runners on base.
Making her second straight start of the day, Plain fought through some early Michigan threats, with the Wolverines taking a 5-1 lead heading into the bottom of the third. The Huskies would pick up two runs there, then exploded for seven runs in the fourth inning. That huge rally started with a solo home run by Jadelyn Allchin and would put the Huskies up for good.
Plain would settle in after the early troubles as well: she faced the minimum over the final five innings, allowing only one baserunner, via a single, that was immediately erased by a double play.
