With the win the Beavers got their first Pac-10 win of the season, improving to 1-2 and 22-16 overall, while the Huskies dropped to 1-1 and 22-10-1.
The Huskies led 3-2 going into the top of the
seventh, but Aleah Macon, who shut out the Beavers 1-0
in the first game of the series on Saturday, hit Dani
Chisholm with a pitch and then gave up a single to
DeAnn Young. Macon struck out Audrey Roderfeld
swinging for one out but, then on a 1-0 pitch, got
taken deep by Guzy, a line drive that just did clear
the wall and land in the first row of the right field
In the bottom of the seventh the Huskies got a
runner on base when Alicia Blake reached on a gift
double, a routine fly ball that left fielder Tarah
Black would have caught had she not fell on the wet
grass, but Kelly Dyer struck out Ashlyn Watson
swinging to end the game.
Dyer went one and two-thirds innings in relief
to get the win in the circle and improve to 13-11,
while Macon suffered the loss to drop to 11-5. She
gave up the three runs on six hits and five and two
thirds innings. She walked three and struck out 10.
The Beavers knocked Husky starter Caitlin Noble
out of the circle early, taking a 2-0 lead in the
second inning. Guzy led off with a walk, and after
Black popped out to third base, Katelyn Miller walked. Dyer then lined a double on a two strike pitch into
the gap in right center to plate Guzy and Miller.
Husky head coach Heather Tarr brought Macon in for
relief, and she escaped any more damage, getting
Cambria Miranda to foul out to first and striking out
Paige Lowe swinging.
The Huskies got a run back and made it 2-1 in
the bottom of the second when Morgan Stuart led off
with a solo homer, her sixth, over the left field
In the bottom of the third the Huskies scored
twice to go ahead 3-2. Amanda Fleischman led off with
a bunt base hit and advanced to second on a fielder's
choice ground out by Bailey Stenson to second. Miranda
made an errant throw to first base, allowing Stenson
to reach base and Fleischman to advance to third.
Fleischman attempted to score on a fielder's choice to
pitcher Stefanie Draper, but Roderfeld blocked home
plate and tagged her out.
With runners on at first
and second, Jace Williams grounded a single to center
to plate Stenson with the tying run, with Koziol
advancing to third. Morgan Stuart then lined a single
to right to score Koziol.
The Huskies return to action on Wednesday, April
2 when they travel to fourth ranked UCLA and then
return home for three games, hosting California for a
single game on Friday, April 4 at 1 p.m. and fifth
ranked Stanford for two games on Saturday, April 5 and
Sunday, April 6.
