The second baseman struck again in the sixth inning with a two-run homer vs. the returning Super Regional advancers.
In front of a Pac-12 TV audience, the All-Region returnee Howard (2-for-4) was one of three Ducks that finished with multiple hits with junior shortstop Courtney Ceo (2-for-4) and Lindvall (2-for-3).
The latter player logged an RBI for the fourth straight contest and her sixth multi-hit game of the season.In the circle, freshman Cheridan Hawkins (12-1) authored another impressive effort and posted her second complete game.
The two-time Pac-12 Pitcher of the Week struck out seven, walked two, and allowed only two hits and no earned runs in her seven innings.
Husky Bryana Walker (12-5) also pitched a complete game, struck out five, walked three, gave up seven hits, and all four of her runs allowed were earned.
At the plate, UW's Kimberlee Souza and Kelli Suguro collected their team's lone hits with singles in the second and fifth innings en route to 1-for-3 afternoons.
Suffering back-to-back losses for the first time this year, Washington scored both of its runs in the fifth inning.
The Huskies capitalized on a walk, two-out single and stolen base by by Suguro, another walk, and an infield error that allowed both runs to score.
Looking ahead, the teams return for the series finale on Saturday at noon, and fans can watch the game for free online at the www.Pac-12.com/live/gohuskies.aspx URL link.
