BELLEVUE, Wash. - The Washington baseball team racked up 20 hits and Trevor Dunlap gave up only two hits over his six innings for the win as the Huskies beat Seattle University, 12-1, Tuesday night at Bannerwood Park.
Dunlap (1-1), a junior making his second UW start, gave up a leadoff single and then retired 17 in a row. He ended his outing having allowed one run on two hits and no walks while striking out six in his six innings.
Six different Huskies collected multiple hits in the game and 12 (all nine starters and three substitutes) had at least one. Second baseman Robert Pehl finished 2-for-4 with three runs batted in and Andrew Ely and Braden Bishop each had three hits to lead the UW.
Washington (7-19) opened the scoring in the second inning. Designated hitter Ryan Wiggins led off the inning with a single to center. After advancing two bases on a pair of bunts, he scored when Ty Afenir's hard shot to third took a bad hop past the fielder and into left field, giving the UW a 1-0 edge.
In the fifth, the Huskies tacked on three more. Jayce Ray singled to lead off the inning and Joe Meggs reached on an error on a sacrifice bunt attempt. Pehl followed with a line-drive, hit-and-run single into left to drive in Ray. Trevor Mitsui and Wiggins then hit successive sacrifice flies to bring home Meggs and Pehl, expanding the lead to 4-0.
Washington continued to score in the sixth. After singles from Ely and Afenir to begin the inning, Bishop lined a single to left, driving in Ely. Later in inning, Pehl drove a two-out single to left to bring home Afenir and Bishop, making it a 7-0 game.
Dunlap's string retiring of 17 batters in a row came to an end in the sixth when SeattleU's Landon Cray lined a two-out, solo homer to right.
Husky freshman catcher Austin Rei got into the act in the seventh, lacing an RBI single to left, making it an 8-1 UW lead. In the ninth, a two-out, pitch-hit single from Brian Wolfe that drove in two runs, and a two-run, pinch-hit double from Parker Guinn highlighted a six-run outburst.
SeattleU starter Andrew Olson (1-4) took the loss, allowing seven runs (five of them earned) on 11 hits over five innings. The Redhawks fell to 10-17 with the loss.
The Huskies continue their current stretch of 11 straight road games this weekend when they take on Pepperdine in a three-game series in Malibu, Calif.
