- Gabbie Plain and Taran Alvelo combined on a six-hit shutout of defending champion Oklahoma yesterday. The win was the 50th of the year for the Huskies.
- Josh Kirshenbaum from The Daily says it was the usual recipe for Heather Tarr’s team: Pitching, defense, and timely hitting.
- Oklahoma coach Patty Gasso watched her team lose only its fourth game of the season. She was impressed with the Husky defense.
- The Husky women will face off against Oregon at 4pm today on ESPN. The Ducks jumped all over ASU yesterday for an 11-6 win. The Dawgs are looking to avenge a three-game sweep against Oregon back in April.
Highlights from yesterday:
Gabbie Plain improved to 21-4 on the season.
Trysten Melhart had the play of the game, and despite some people thinking she didn’t hold on (this is not football, folks), she knew she had made the grab.
Seven Huskies selected All-Academic:
- Athlon ranks its top 50 running backs. Myles Gaskin checks in at #6 and another Pac-12 stud tops the list.
