March 15, 2013
Los Angeles, Calif. - Tonight's game vs. Washington has been suspended due to fog and will resume tomorrow at 1 p.m. in the bottom of the fourth with one out and Washington leading 2-0. The originally scheduled game that was slated to begin at 2 p.m. tomorrow, will now take place 30 minutes after the conclusion of the first game.
The game was halted in the bottom of the fourth inning after heavy fog rolled in to Jackie Robinson Stadium, making conditions unplayable. Pat Valaika was on second base and Pat Gallagher was at the plate with one out and a 2-2 count when the game was suspended. Nick Palewicz was on the mound for the Huskies. The game will resume at this point tomorrow at 1 p.m.
Washington jumped out to the early lead in the top of the first, when Jayce Ray hit an RBI groundout to shortstop to score Joe Meggs and give the Huskies a 1-0 lead. Designated hitter Brian Wolfe then hit a solo home run to right off UCLA starter Adam Plutko, increasing Washington's lead to 2-0. Plutko pitched four innings, giving up two hits and two runs on 47 pitches before the delay. Palewicz threw 3.1 innings, allowing two hits on 56 pitches.
As mentioned above, UCLA and Washington will play the second game of their series 30 minutes following the conclusion of the resumed game. Nick Vander Tuig (2-2, 2.42 ERA) is slated to take the mound for the Bruins in the second game.
