This is the same team that had scored four, ten, and eight runs in the previous week. On top of that, the Washington Huskies have six players who are batting over .300. So where has all this offense gone?
With any luck, they will show up tonight. Oklahoma is not the best team defensively. But they have scored four, five, and six runs respectively. Tonight, there will be little chance of the Huskies holding their firepower to just one run.
The Washington Huskies have a good chance of winning. The defense and pitching have been phenomenal in the past two games. But tonight, success depends on getting those bats to come back to life.
