After a solid 4-1 showing in Session 1, No. 5 Washington came ready to play softball to begin its campaign through Session 2. Despite giving up a run in the first inning, the Huskies capitalized a big second frame to take down No. 25 Mississippi State, 7-5.
Washington’s big crooked number began with an Emma Helm two-run double. After a fielding error and a double steal made it 4-1, Morganne Flores launched a two-run home run to extend the Husky advantage, 6-1.
The Bulldog’s (4-3) Mia Davidson claimed all of Mississippi State runs, homering in the first, fourth and seventh innings. Freshman Grace Fagan pitched four complete frames, struck out four and surrendered just one run.
Gabbie Plain went the distance for Washington (5-1), striking out nine and walking just two.
