Gold Takes Fall World Series With 6-1 Victory
Oct. 21, 2011
SEATTLE - The Gold team won the third and final game of the annual UW baseball Fall World Series, beating the Purple squad, 6-1, on Thursday to win the series, two games to one.
The Husky baseball team's fall practice season also wrapped up with the game.
A five-run first inning proved the difference for the victorious Purple team and sophomore starter Zach Wright held the Purple to two hits in four shutout innings, fanning five, for the win.
Tyler Davis (two innings) and Josh Fredendall (one) finished up a combined three-hitter for the Gold.
In the first inning, the Gold team had already scored one run on an error before a double from freshman Trevor Mitsui drove in two more. Fellow newcomers Michael Camporeale and Jayce Ray each added RBI singles to tack on two more.
In the fourth, the Gold team made it 6-0 when Ty Afenir singled and scored on a double from Robert Pehl.
Junior Adam Cimber pitched two perfect innings of relief for the Purple.
The Huskies will return to the practice field after the new year and then open the season with a three-game series at San Diego State Feb. 17-19.
