Washington pounded out 13 hits and grabbed an early lead to give freshman Jack DeCooman plenty of leeway to work with as the Huskies beat Seattle U, 7-2, in a nonconference baseball game Tuesday afternoon at Bannerwood Park in Bellevue.

Nick Kahle (3 for 5, two doubles) and Noah Hsue (3 for 3, RBI) each had three hits to back DeCooman, who did not allow a hit in his four-inning start.

The Redhawks (29-13) got their first three hits of the game off Dylan Lamb in the fifth, scoring on RBI singles by Jack Reisinger and Austin Lively to cut the Huskies’ (21-19) lead to 7-2.

Track and field

• Seattle Pacific freshman Renick Meyer captured the Great Northwest Athletic Conference heptathlon crown in Nampa, Idaho.
