Aided by a pair of USC errors, the Huskies scored four runs on two hits in the seventh inning to break a scoreless tie after starters Bobby Wheatley and Jeff Brigham each went a season-high five innings.
Brigham combined with Washington relievers Tyler Kane, Joshua Fredendall and Nick Palewicz to pitch a three-hit shutout. The Trojans managed only 13 hits for the entire weekend.

The right-handed redshirt junior needed only 91 pitches to carve up the USC lineup in a 7-0 complete game shutout. No USC baserunner reached second base as West allowed only four singles.
He faced only two batters above the minimum, wiping out two of the singles with double plays.
