Baseball Edges Matadors, 5-4
April 16, 1999
SEATTLE - Sophomore Jeff Carlsen improved to 6-0 on the season Friday night, leading the Washington baseball team to a 5-4 win over Cal State Northridge in a non- conference game at Husky Ballpark.
Carlsen, a 6-foot-7 righty from Poulso, Wash., worked eight and one-third innings, allowing four runs on nine hits while striking out four. The Huskies improved to 22-12 with the win while Northridge fell to 20-24.
The Huskies scored all five of their runs in the second inning as the first five batters reached base and scored off of CSUN starter Trevor Gray, who took the loss to fall to 4-2. Kevin Ticens two-run double highlighted the inning.
The Matadors scored two in the fourth on an RBI double by Tim Arroyo and a single from T.J. Stotts that plated Arroyo. In the seventh, Daniel Phillips led off the inning with his 14th home run the season to make it 5-3.
Husky closer Matt Massingale came in with runners at first and second with out on and one run already across in the ninth and got Eric Horvat to ground into a double play to pick up his sixth save. Matador pitcher Jose Vasquez, who relieved Gray in the second, held the Huskies to only two hits over the last six and two-thirds innings.
The Huskies and Matadors continue the three-game series Saturday at 1:00 p.m.
