SEATTLE-- Brett Mooneyham (5-2) gave up a season-high five runs on nine hits as Washington (17-10, 4-4 Pac-12) evened the series following a 6-4 win on Friday evening over No. 6-ranked Stanford (18-7, 3-5 Pac-12).
In losing his second-straight start, Mooneyham lasted 5.2 innings, as Washington chased him from the game following a two-run double by B.K.Santy in the sixth to make it 5-1. Santy finished with three hits. It was Mooneyham's shortest outing of the season.
Stanford sent the tying run to the plate in the fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth innings. They left eight on for the game, seven over the final five innings.
Joshua Frendendall came on for the four-out save after Alex Blandino's RBI double cut the lead to 6-4 in the eighth. He got the final out of the eighth with a groundout before his perfect ninth completed four Huskies pitchers and gave the righthander his sixth save.
RBI's from Jake Stewart and Stephen Piscotty cut the lead to 5-3 in the seventh, after the Cardinal left two runners on in the fifth and sixth, down 3-1.
Three hits in the fifth chased Washington starter Tyler Davis from the game with two outs. Davis gave up a single run on three hits over 4.2 innings, all in the fifth, before winner Tyler Kane (2-0) came on and got a groundout to end the fifth and keep the Huskies in front 3-1. Two hits, but two groundouts in the sixth, also kept it at 3-1.
Kane pitched 1.1 scoreless innings of relief, before Nick Palewicz gave up two runs in the seventh and another in the eighth over 1.2 innings
Branden Berry two-run homer made it 3-0 in the third, after a double play ball in the first made it 1-0.
