LOS ANGELES — For just the second time, the Washington softball team won two straight games at UCLA, 1-0 and 5-4 in nine innings Tuesday night.
It was also the first series win for the Huskies (27-10, 5-3 Pac-12) over UCLA (25-10, 2-6) since winning two out of three in 2010 in Seattle. The Huskies, who have won three straight Pac-12 games, seek their first regular-season series sweep against the Bruins at noon Wednesday.
In the opener, the Huskies’ only hit proved to be enough as a solo home run by sophomore Kylee Lahners in the top of the fifth gave UW the win.
In the second game, Victoria Hayward doubled and scored on a double by freshman Missy Taukeiaho to give UW a 5-4 lead in the ninth inning.
