Huskies Win First of Series

Seattle (March 14, 2002)--A pair of Huskies near single-handedly defeated BYU's baseball team with a 15-8 victory for Washington on Thursday evening.

Pitcher Shawn Kohn withstood the Cougars' challenge for eight innings to remain undefeated at 5-0 and UW outfielder Jay Garthwaite missed hitting for the cycle when he hit his second triple of the game. Garthwaite needed a double in the eighth, but hit a lead-off triple to centerfield.

The Cougars, now 8-12, took a 5-4 lead in the fourth inning. Cameron Coughlan led off with a single to right, then Matt Carson tripled to right center. Rob Itri reached on a fielder's choice and scored along with Carson when Jake Stubblefield doubled to left with no outs. Then Dave Jensen hit the first of his two-run homers.

Jensen also homered to right field again in the eighth to score Itri who led off the inning with a single.

The Cougars dinged Kohn for eight runs, seven earned, bruising the senior who had surrendered only three runs in the previous 30 innings this season. BYU got stolen bases from Coughlan, Carson and Ryan Chambers, but the Huskies had seven stolen bases, including four by Tyler Davidson.

The game started a half an hour late due to rain and BYU's travel delay. Washington, now 9-7, hosts BYU on Friday afternoon in the second contest of the three-game series.
