Huskies baseball team defeats Oregon 2-1

Washington’s baseball team scored two runs in the first inning and held on to win behind an outstanding effort on the hill from four pitchers in a 2-1 victory over Oregon on Friday at Husky Ballpark.

Both teams fought through a rainy and blustery day, but it was Washington (16-14, 7-3 Pac-12) that was able to endure the longest.

Leadoff hitter Mason Cerrillo accounted for the first run, walking and eventually scoring on a wild pitch by Oregon (18-14, 5-8) ace Matt Mercer. Third baseman Willie MacIver drove home the other run on a two-out single to left field that scored Nick Kahle — who had singled earlier — from second base.

UW starter Lucas Knowles (2-3) went the first 51/3 innings, giving up one run, scattering six hits and striking out four. Stevie Emanuels, Alex Hardy and ace Joe DeMers finished the game.

The Kent-Meridian graduate was a standout football and baseball player at Western in the late 1950s and later head football coach for the Vikings (1966-69), the only alumnus in school history to hold that job. Emerson in 1976 was inducted into WWU’s Athletics Hall of Fame.
