UW Huskies Secure 2-1 Victory Over Portland Pilots

The UW Huskies (5-6) clenched a victory after a close baseball game against the Portland Pilots (3-7) Wednesday (March 9), according to sources.

The team attributed their win to a "dominant bullpen and clutch hitting in the sixth inning from Michael Brown and Ramon Bramasco." The game ended with a 2-1 score at the Husky Ballpark.

Nate Weeldreyer also made his first appearance this season. "After working through two scoreless innings, he exited with one out in the top of the third and two men on base," the university wrote. The Pilots had the lead early in the game, bases loaded in one inning, but that would be the only point they score for the rest of the game.

Gabe Smith was able to stall Portland from getting more points by getting the last out of third. He reportedly finished with a line of 3.1 innings, 0 runs, one hit and two strikeouts. Bramasco brought Braiden Ward home from first on a hit-and-run play. Michael Brown hit a line drive into the left field corner, which scored Bramasco and gave UW a 2-1 lead.

Colton Charnholm came in for seventh and got all five batters he faced.

"With two outs in the eighth, he made way for Davis Delorefice, who struck out the final batter of the inning on three pitches. Delorefice then struck out the first two batters of the ninth and got a ground ball to Michael Snyder at first base for the final out of the night," the team wrote."

UW's next game will be Thursday (March 11) where they will play against Seattle and then Washington State on Friday (March 12), according to the team. The Huskies will take on both teams in a Saturday double-header.
