Generals' Strike Out Cancer Night Saturday

Posted: Updated:


Saturday night, the Generals have their fifth annual Strike Out Cancer night. The Generals will wear special pink jerseys Saturday night. After the game, those jerseys will be auctioned off, and Generals G.M. Mike Yokum told me the proceeds will go towards mammograms for women with financial needs. Strike Out Cancer night is sponsored by Citizens Medical Center. Last year's auction raised $12,000. This year's auction will be a bit different. Said Yokum, "This year we have the live auction of course after the game. During the game we'll have a couple of jerseys that will be set up for a silent auction as well as a team signed bat and a team signed ball. That'll be set up in the concession area where you can go by and place your bids on the silent auction. In the seventh inning is when we'll cut that off and we'll announce our winners then."

Levi Jordan was 3 for 4 with two RBIs to extend his hitting streak to eight games and Washington beat Cal State Fullerton 8-5 on Friday in the Huskies' first NCAA Tournament super regional.
    
Washington scored two runs in the fifth inning - including Jordan's sacrifice fly - for Fullerton's only deficit this postseason. Freshman Kaiser Weiss hit a two-run double in the ninth after entering as a defensive replacement.
    
Washington (34-23) came in 0-8 against Fullerton.
    
Washington freshman starter Lucas Knowles struck out three while allowing five hits and one earned run. Closer Alex Hardy entered in the seventh and slated Game 2 starter Joe DeMers pitched the ninth.
    
Fullerton (35-24) was undone by five errors.
    
Sahid Valenzuela hit a two-out RBI triple in the seventh and scored on Jace Chamberlin's single to pull Fullerton to 6-5. Fullerton left the bases loaded in the eighth. Texas hosts Tennesee Tech and Texas Tech hosts Duke in super regional action Saturday.
