UW-UCLA Baseball Game Halted Due To Fog
March 15, 2013
LOS ANGELES - The Washington baseball game Friday night at UCLA was suspended in the fourth inning due to fog. Saturday, the game will pick up where it left off, with the UW leading the No. 11 Bruins, 2-0, in the bottom of the fourth inning. Play was halted due to a lack of visibility at Jackie Robinson Stadium.
The Huskies and Bruins will begin the suspended game Saturday at 1:00 p.m. (an hour earlier than the originally scheduled 2:00 p.m. game). The second game of the series will follow 30 minutes after completion of the first.
Washington got to UCLA ace Adam Plutko in the early-going Friday night. Husky senior Joe Meggs led off the game with a double down the left-field line. After a bunt moved him to third, he scored on a groundout from Jayce Ray.
In the second inning, UW designated hitter Brian Wolfe blasted a long homer to right field to open the inning, staking the Huskies to a 2-0 lead.
UW starting pitcher Nick Palewicz had pitched three and one-third scoreless innings before the game was halted in the bottom of the fourth.
