Down 2-1, the Huskies (18-30 overall, 9-14 in the Pac-12) scored in the fifth, sixth and seventh innings to secure the victory. Utah fell to 17-27, 6-20 in conference.
Voth, a junior from Kent, improved to 6-5 with the win. In his eight innings, he gave up two runs on five hits, walking two and striking out five. After the second inning, when he gave up two runs on three hits, he faced just one over the minimum over his next six frames. Trevor Dunlap pitched the ninth to earn his second save.
Utah starter Dalton Carroll (3-7) suffered the loss, giving up five runs (four earned) on nine hits over seven innings.
Bishop, a freshman from San Carlos, Calif., led off the Husky first by reaching on a bunt single. He moved to second on a bunt, stole third and then scored on a Jayce Ray groundout to give Washington a 1-0 lead.
In the second, Utah's Kody Davis and Konnor Armijo singled to lead off. Davis scored on a safety squeeze bunt from Wyler Smith and Armijo slid in to home just ahead of a tag on a single from Cody Scaggari, putting the Utes in front, 2-1.
UW seniors Joe Meggs and Ty Afenir singled in the fifth to put runners at first and third for Bishop, whose bunt single - his third hit of the day - brought home Meggs to tie the game at 2-2. Washington went on to load the bases and Michael Camporeale was hit by a pitch, forcing in Afenir with the go-ahead run.
In the sixth Afenir and Meggs stood at first and third with two outs. Afenir left first early to try and draw a throw while Meggs broke for home. Carroll, the Utah pitcher, instead threw to the plate and got Meggs in a rundown. During the rundown, Meggs and Utah catcher Konnor Armijo collided and Meggs was awarded home by the umpires, increasing the UW lead to 4-2.
In the seventh, Camporeale reached on a two-out error and when Robert Pehl's infield single to second got away from the second baseman who had attempted to field it, Camporeale scored to make it 5-2.
Bishop finished the game 3-for-5 with a run and an RBI. Meggs and Afenir had two hits each.
The Huskies and Utes close out the series with a noon game Sunday. The game will air live on Pac-12 Networks.
