NCAA Baseball Tournament: Washington Defeats Georgia Tech, Advances To Regional Finals

UW Baseball

The Husky pitching and defense again stole the show, as the Huskies came from behind to earn another shot at Ole Miss.

The Dawgs dealt with a rain delay and an early deficit in the first inning, as Georgia Tech put two on before the weather came in and delayed the game. When play resumed, the Yellow Jackets knocked two runs in, and put the Huskies in a hole.

An Andrew Ely two run home run in the top of the 3rd brought the game all square at 2-2, which lasted until the Huskies loaded the bases in the 6th and Robert Pehl singled in a run. Chris Baker would ground into a fielder's choice to put the Dawgs up two runs before the inning was over.

UW pitchers Brandon Choate and Jeff Dunlap combined to provide the Huskies with 4.2 scoreless innings in relief, as the Husky pitching and defense locked it up after a shaky first inning. That combo has been stellar in all three games thus far, allowing just 4 runs in 27 innings of baseball.

The Dawgs will face Ole Miss in a must win-game tomorrow at 12 noon Pacific time once again on ESPN3. Should the Dawgs win that game, they'll play Ole Miss again in a rubber match where the winner advances to the Super Regional.
