SEATTLE -- Despite a solid pitching performance from
Carlos Fisher, the Lewis-Clark State baseball team saw its 15-game win
streak doused by a 4-2 loss to Washington on Tuesday night at Husky
Fisher, a right-handed senior, went the distance, giving up five hits and
no walks. He tallied nine strikeouts and worked five 1-2-3 innings.
But the Huskies (28-21) did occasionally get to him. The first batter he
faced, Taylor Johnson, slammed a homer to right field. And in the fourth,
Washington used three hits, including a homer from Kyle Larsen, to score
Fisher suffered his first loss of the season to fall to 4-1.
The Warriors (43-7) tallied their first run in the sixth, when Joey Dyche
bashed a solo home run. Dyche went 2-for-4 on the evening to raise his
batting average to .489.
In the eighth, Dyche whapped a double that moved Matt Vogel to third.
After Vogel scored on Justin Fuller's sacrifice fly, Ryan Stevenson walked
to put runners on third and first with two outs.
But the next batter, Josh Celigoy, didn't get a chance to drive in a run.
Stevenson was gunned out trying to steal second.
In the ninth, the Warriors were retired in order.
LCSC will return to Harris Field tonight to take on Gonzaga at 6:30. That
will be the Warriors' regular-season finale.
