Plain Records 1,000th Career Strikeout in 5-0 Win Over No. 19 Oregon
EUGENE, Ore. – Gabbie Plain hit the 1,000 career strikeout mark in No. 11 Washington's 5-0 win over No. 19 Oregon on Sunday afternoon. The Huskies improve to 28-11 on the season with a 9-6 record in Pac-12 play.
Plain becomes the third active pitcher in NCAA Division I to record 1,000 strikeouts in her career and the second Husky in program history to do so. The senior tossed seven complete innings with eight strikeouts and one walk, while only allowing three hits.
Jadelyn Allchin got the Huskies on the board first with a three-run home run in the second inning to put Washington up 3-0.
In the fourth, Jenn Cummings sent a single out to the right center gap that scored Allchin from second for the 4-0 advantage.
The Huskies extended their lead in the sixth on a Sami Reynolds sacrifice fly, scoring Lilly Agan from third to bring the score to its eventual final of 5-0.
The Huskies return the field on Tuesday for a midweek matchup with Seattle U. First pitch from Husky Softball Stadium is set for 6 p.m.
