SEATTLE - Hooch Fagaly hit a game winning grand slam with one out in the bottom of the seventh…
Huskies Split Doubleheader
Ali Aguilar led off the bottom of the seventh by popping out to third but Whitney Jones reached on an infield single and Dani Braun walked. Kelli Suguro grounded out to Pinion for the second out, with Jones advancing to third and Braun to second. That brought up Creger-Zier with a chance to tie the game with a base hit. She took ball one, fouled back the next pitch and took a called strike for a 1-2 count. She took ball two but struck out swinging on the next pitch to end the game.
Pinon (16-5) recorded her third shutout and seventh complete game of the season, finishing with two hits allowed while walking vie and striking out two. She had a no-hitter through five innings before Hooch Fagaly led off the bottom of the sixth with the first hit, a line single to center.
Despite getting only the two hits the Huskies had their chances to get to PInon. In the first, they had runners at first and second with one out when Kylee Lahners grounded into a third to first double play to end the inning.
Then in the fourth, Pinon walked Lahners and Aguilar to put two runners on with two outs, but she escaped unscathed when Jones grounded into a fielder's choice putout at third.
Bryana Walker (17-8) made her final regular season home start in the circle for the Huskies and gave up two runs on four hits while walking one and striking out one in three innings.
Both runs came in the top of the third when Chelsea Suitos bunted for a base hit and one out later Kelsey Rodriguez lined a 2-2 pitch over the wall in left field for her fifth home run of the season. Walker had to leave the game after she got hit on the hand by a line drive off the bat of Chelsea Goodacre. She was able to field the ball and throw the runner out at first, but Kaitlin Inglesby pitched the final four innings in relief, allowing one hit and walking one while striking out three.
In the opener of the doubleheader, a game that first got postponed by rain from Saturday to Sunday and delayed another hour and 20 minutes from a 9:30 a.m. start, Washington won 8-0 in five innings.
Walker tossed a one hit shutout and got the only run she would need in the bottom of the first when Fagaly tripled with one out and scored on a single by Inglesby.
The Huskies capped the run rule win with four runs in the bottom of the fourth on a solo home run by Kelli Suguro, her first of the season, and a three run shot to left center by Lahners, her 15th of the season.
After the game, the Huskies honored seven seniors making their final home appearances Creger-Zier, Fagaly, Hayward, Inglesby, Jones, Walker and Mercedes Wetmore. They next complete the regular season on the road at California in a three game series from May 8-10. Then on Sunday, May 11, they will find out their regional destination in the NCAA tournament.
