With the win the Huskies completed the season with an 11-13 Pac-10 record and 33-22 overall mark.
Dunn singled in his first two at-bats and his
two run home run in the bottom of the sixth led to a
big six run inning that erased a 4-0 deficit. With Ty
Rasmussen on base with a single and two outs, Dunn hit
an apparent inning ending pop up but Cardinal second
baseman Cord Phelps dropped the ball for an error,
giving Dunn another chance to swing the bat and he
promptly lined the next pitch from Jeffrey Inman into
the left field bullpen for his fifth long ball of the
season. Then David Bentrott and Michael Burgher walked
and Stanford went to the bullpen, bringing in left
hander Blake Hancock to pitch to the left handed
hitting Andy Lentz. Lentz greeted Hancock with a line
double down the right field line on a 1-0 pitch to
score Bentrott and make it 4-3. Bradley Boyer followed
with a line single to left to score Burgher and Lentz
and give the Huskies a 5-4 lead. Aaron Russell
singled and Kyle Conley lined a single to left to
score Boyer and put the Huskies on top 6-4.
Washington made it 7-4 in the bottom of the
seventh with two outs. Bentrott singled and stole
second. Burgher then beat out an infield single, but
instead of stopping at third, Bentrott raced home with
a big insurance run.
Cam Nobles (6-4) benefited from the Huskies'
offensive outburst to get the win. He pitched four
stellar innings, allowing only a hit and a walk while
striking out six. Left handed ace Nick Haughian
started on the mound for Washington but did not factor
into the decision. He went five plus innings,
allowing four runs, all earned, on three hits and
three walks with three strikeouts. Stanford got to
Haughian for two runs in the top of the fourth on a
two run single by Sean Ratliff and added two more in
the sixth on a two run opposite field homer to right
center by Toby Gerhart.
In addition to Dunn, Burgher and Lentz started
their final games in a Husky uniform. Burgher went 1
for 3 with a walk, run scored and run batted in while
Lentz finished 2 for 3 with two walks, a run scored
and an RBI.
The Huskies also recognized senior pitchers
Elliott Cribby and Josh Scofield prior to the game.
