Huskies Blank Bruins, 5-0

March 31, 2006

Box Score

Seattle - Washington junior ace Tim Lincecum tossed a two-hit complete-game shutout with a career-high 18 strikeouts to hand UCLA a 5-0 Pac-10 opener loss on Friday night at Husky Ballpark. The loss drops UCLA to 15-12 overall and 0-1 in the Pac-10 while UW improves to 19-10 and 2-2 in the Pac-10.

Freshman catcher Ryan Babineau sacked up for UCLA, recording the only hits of the ball game for the Bruins in a 2-for-3 performance.

Lincecum (6-2) had a career night striking out the first seven Bruins he faced to open the game, as he no-hit UCLA for 5.1 innings while giving up only one walk in the game.

Junior Hector Ambriz (4-4) went 7.0 innings with nine strikeouts, giving up four earned runs on seven hits in a losing effort.

UCLA fell behind 1-0 to the Dawgs in the second inning on a RBI single by Kyle Conley. Ambriz pitched himself out of a major jam in the inning after loading the bases with one out. Ambriz got Jake Rife to ground into a clutch 6-4-3 double play to end the inning and stop the Washington scoring threat.

Babineau broke up Lincecum's no-hit bid in the top of the sixth inning with a bunt single down the third base line.

UW jumped ahead of UCLA 4-0 in the sixth inning. Bradley Boyer got things going with a lead off double down the left field line, followed by a RBI single to right field with one out by Matt Lane to put the Huskies up 2-0. Curt Rindal then drilled a two-run home run to left field to give the Huskies a 4-0 advantage.

Babineau collected his second hit of the game with a line-drive single to right field on a 0-2 count with two outs in the top of the eighth inning.

UW scored one more run in the eighth inning as Matt Lane crossed the plate from third base on a wild pitch with two outs.

UCLA's five-game winning streak and 13-game home run streak ended Friday night.

The Bruins and the Huskies will play game two of the three-game series on Saturday, April 1 at 2 p.m.
