SEATTLE  –  Andrew Ely had three hits, scored the go-ahead run and knocked in an insurance run to back Huskies’ starter Tyler Davis in a 2-1 victory over Washington State (18-21, 8-9) in game one of a double-header Sunday at Husky Ballpark.

The Huskies (28-10-1, 15-5) stopped a season-high three game losing skid to even the three-games series at 1-1.

Washington jumped on Cougars’ starter Tanner Chleborad (2-5) in the first inning to give Davis an advantage to work with that he would cling to all day. Ely snapped out of a 1-for-30 slump with a single to center and advanced on a Robert Pehl groundout. Brian Wolfe, who entered the game second in the Pac-12 with a .398 average, delivered a clutch two-out double to center that scored Ely to give UW a 1-0 lead.

The Dawgs added an unearned run in the fifth after Ely slapped a single to left-center field to score Erik Forgione, who reached on a throwing error by third baseman Nick Tanielu. The hit was Ely’s third of the game.

Washington State got a run back in the sixth on a Davis wild pitch. Trace Tam Ting doubled with one out and advanced to third on a bunt base hit by Collin Slaybaugh. Ting scored when Davis uncorked a pitch into the dirt that got behind catcher Austin Rei. After a walk, Davis induced No. 3 hitter Yale Rosen to bounce into a tailor-made 4-6-3 double play to end the threat.

Davis (9-1) left the game with a 2-1 lead after seven innings and in position to equal the Pac-12 lead with his ninth win. He gave up one run on five hits and struck out one batter and walked one too.

Trevor Dunlap and Troy Rallings combined to close out the game. Rallings got the final four outs of the game, including striking out the side in the ninth, to pick up his sixth save.
