USF Downs No. 25 Husky Baseball
April 7, 1999
SEATTLE - An 11th-inning single by San Francisco left fielder Pat Walsh drove in the winning run as USF edged out No. 25 Washington, 6-5, in 11 innings in a non-conference baseball game at Husky Ballpark.
In the 11th , Ken Ferguson issued a walk to lead off the inning. He moved over to second on a sacrifice bunt and to third on a wild pitch by UW reliever Matt Massingale. Walsh followed with the single over the drawn-in infield.
After two Husky errors led to two unearned runs for the Dons in the top of the fourth, sophomore designated hitter Daniel Jahn tied the game at 2-2 with a two-run homer in the bottom of the inning. The homer was Jahn's second of the season.
USF (13-18-1) took the lead back with another unearned run in the sixth to make the score 3-2. In the seventh inning, the Dons increased their lead to 5-2 when Pat Walsh's RBI single scored Jeff Pritchard from second base and Gregg Omori belted a solo homer to left.
Washington (17-10) scored three runs in the bottom of the seventh to tie the game at 5-5. With two runners on, Marc Rittenhouse belted a triple off the center field wall. He eventually scored on a Kyle Woods groundout to tie the score.
Husky starter Matt Hampton, who had struggled recently, threw five innings, allowing two unearned runs on two hits while striking out six. USF reliever Peter Dunkle (4-2) worked the final five innings to earn the victory.
The Huskies and Dons play the second of two games Wednesday at 2:00 p.m.
