Diamond Dawgs finish up fall world series

Greg Isaacson finished 4 for 4 with a run scored and two runs batted in as the Gold team defeated the Purple team 7-2 in game 5 of the UW Fall World Series at Husky Ballpark on a magnificent Friday afternoon. The game on Friday marked the final intrasquad contest of the fall season, with the Gold team winning the series 3 games to 2.

8 other Gold players joined Isaacson in registering at least one hit, including juniors Steve Ramsey and Chad Boudon, sophomores Aaron Hathaway and Nick Batkoski, and frsehmen Brent Lillibridge, Zach Clem, Simi Reynolds and Joe Harris.

The Gold team immediately got to Purple starter, left handed junior Brian Carter, for a run in the first as Lillibridge singled, Isaacson bunted for a hit, and Boudon singled to right to score Lillibridge. The Golds added a run in the third as Isaacson lined a one out single and scored on a double to left by Hathaway. The Golds made it 3-0 in the fourth as they loaded the bases and sophomore Devin Warner lifted a sacrifice fly to left field to score Ramsey.

After managing only three hits against Gold starter Scott Robertson through the first four frames, the Purples finally got on the board in the bottom of the fifth, scoring twice against reliever Trevor Gibson. Senior Tila Reynolds grounded an infield single into the shortstop hole with two outs and scored when Brandon Jacobson hit a two run home run off the screen in center field.

The Golds put the game out of reach in the sixth with three runs. After a walk to Batkoski and singles by Clem and Simi Reynolds, Isaacson lined a single into right field to plate Batkosky and Clem and when right fielder Nick Burnham's throw bounced away from catcher Jefferson Thiel, Simi Reynolds came home.

In the seventh the Golds scored the final run of the game on a double by Harris and a bloop single to right by Batkoski.

For the game, the Golds scored 7 runs on 12 hits and one error, while the Purples scored two runs on six hits and one error.

With the completion of the fall practice season the Huskies now await the arrival of the 2003 season and they will begin on the road against Pepperdine in Malibu, California on Friday, February 7.
