The seventh-ranked University of Washington baseball team defeated the University of Utah, 21-17, Sunday at Smith’s Ballpark in Salt Lake City.

The Huskies (32-11-1, 19-5) pounded out 23 hits, including a home run and three doubles to earn a sweep of the Utes. Washington won 8-4 on Friday and 11-1 on Saturday.

The sweep was the third of the season for Washington and marked the Huskies ninth consecutive series win.

Despite the sweep, Washington remains percentage points behind Oregon State for first place in the Pac-12. The Diamond Dawgs and Beavers will face each other for a weekend series in Corvallis beginning Friday, May 16.

The Huskies return to action Tuesday, May 6 against Grand Canyon at Husky Ballpark. First pitch is set for 6 p.m.
