Schmitten pitches Huskies past USC
Senior allows just one hit in seven innings of 6-0 baseball victory over Trojans.
Senior pitcher Ryan Schmitten allowed just one hit over seven innings and the UW pitching staff faced just one USC batter over the minimum as the Huskies dominated the Trojans in a 6-0 series-clinching, one-hit shutout win Sunday.
No. 21 Washington (27-16, 13-8 Pac-12) took two of three games from USC (21-24, 10-11) to maintain its footing atop the Pac-12 standings. The Huskies have also won eight of the last nine games against USC on the road.
“To drop the Friday game and come back and win the next two proves that we are pretty resilient,” Husky coach Lindsay Meggs said.
Schmitten (1-2) did not allow a hit until there were two outs in the sixth inning – a double by Reggie Southall.
• No. 13 Louisiana State got a game-ending home run from Allie Walljasper for a 5-4 victory over No. 11 Washington.
The Tigers (42-14) scored three runs in the sixth, but the visiting Huskies (33-13) got a homer from Kimberlee Souza for a 4-3 lead in the top of the seventh. The Tigers rallied to force extra innings.
• New Mexico State (27-20, 15-6 WAC) held off a late rally by Seattle U (29-18, 16-5) to clinch the series with a 7-5 win. Chase Ridder had a two-run homer for the Redhawks and Sheldon Stober was 4 for 5.
• Utah (17-24, 12-8 Pac-12) pounded out 14 hits and earned an 11-5 victory at Washington State.
Patrick McGrath hit a two-run homer for WSU (15-26, 8-15).
