No. 16/15 Washington 2
SEATTLE - An RBI single to right field by junior Kelli Suguro (Kent, Wash.) in the sixth inning drove in pinch runner Whitney Jones (Upland, Calif.) for the winning run in a tight 2-1 victory over No. 10/10 Oregon on Saturday afternoon in game three of the series.
In front of a crowd of over 1,300, No. 16/15 Washington (25-10, 3-3) handed Oregon (28-5, 5-1) its first Pac-12 loss of the season.
Washington had its best offensive outing on the weekend tallying eight hits against two great Oregon pitchers. Jessica Moore started the game and allowed the first run and freshman Cheridan Hawkins (12-2) gave up the second.
Senior Shawna Wright (Lancaster, Calif.) had a team-high two hits for the Dawgs.
Junior Bryana Walker (La Quinta, Calif.) got the start in the circle for the UW allowing the lone Oregon run. Fellow junior Kaitlin Inglesby (Portland, Ore.) pitched 5.2 innings in relief and allowed just three hits picking up her 11th win of the year.
Kailee Cuico got Oregon on the board first with a solo home run in the second.
The first Husky run came in the fourth as Inglesby singled to left to lead off the inning. Junior Kimberlee Souza (Waialua, Hawai'i) hit a sac bunt to advance the runners.
The first pitch to Wright she drilled up the middle driving in pinch runner Marki Creger-Zier (Steilacoom, Wash.).
Washington heads to UCLA for a doubleheader on Tuesday beginning at 4 p.m. and a solo game at noon on Wednesday.
