Box Score

SEATTLE - The Washington baseball team did its best to keep alive its NCAA tournament hopes as the Huskies beat Washington State, 5-2, for the second straight day at Husky Ballpark.

The Huskies picked up their 30th victory of the season, improving to 30-24 overall and 13-16 in the Pac-12 Conference. WSU fell to 27-28 overall and 11-18 in the conference. The UW also won Friday's game by a score of 5-2.

UW right-hander Zach Wright (3-1) picked up the win, pitching one and one-third innings of scoreless relief. Starter Tyler Davis went four and two-thirds innings, allowing two runs on four hits. He left with the score tied at 2-2. Austin Voth pitched the final two innings to pick up his first save.

Cougars starter J.D. Leckenby fell to 4-7 in the loss. He worked seven innings, allowing four runs (three earned) on seven hits.

In the bottom of the first, Husky junior Jacob Lamb got the green light on a 3-0 pitch and lined a double to the gap in right-center. Freshman Branden Berry following by singling up the middle, scoring Lamb to give Washington the early 1-0 edge.

The Dawgs used another two-out rally to score in the second. After two quick outs, B.K. Santy singled and Ty Afenir walked to bring up Jayce Ray, whose single to left plated Santy to make it 2-0.

However, in the third, the Cougars came back. After a double from P.J. Jones and a walk to Ian Sagdal, Collin Slaybaugh bounced a double down the first-base line, scoring both runners to tie the score at 2-2.

In the fifth, Afenir led off with a double down the third-base line. After moving to third on a bunt from Ray, he scored on a safety squeeze bunt from Joe Meggs to put the UW back in front at 3-2.

In the sixth, Husky right fielder Chase Anselment doubled off the fence in left-center to begin the inning. After he moved to third on a wild pitch, Trevor Mitsui struck out swinging on a pitch that went off the catcher's mitt and rolled far enough away for Anselment to score and Mitsui to reach first on the passed ball .

The UW added an insurance run in the eighth with another two-out rally. Afenir drove in the run with a two-out bloop double to left, his second two-base hit of the day. Afenir finished the day 2-for-3 with an RBI and a run. Lamb also had two hits.

Slaybaugh led the WSU at the plate, going 3-for-4 with two RBI. P.J. Jones went 2-for-3 with a pair of doubles.

The Huskies and Cougars close out the regular season Sunday with a 1:00 p.m. game at Husky Ballpark. Fans can follow live stats and watch live video, both for free, here at gohuskies.com.
