Washington scored in the first inning and never trailed on the way to a 6-4 Pac-12 baseball win over sixth-ranked Stanford Friday night at Husky Ballpark.
The victory evened the series between the Huskies (17-10 overall, 4-4) and Cardinal (18-7, 3-5). The series concludes with a 1 p.m. game Saturday.
Tyler Kane (2-0) got the victory in relief, entering the game with two outs in the fifth and getting four outs. Freshman Tyler Davis worked the first 4-1/3 innings, allowing one run on three hits.
Freshman Branden Berry's second home run of the season, a two-run shot in the third, put UW ahead 3-1.
In the sixth, the Huskies chased Stanford starter Brett Mooneyham (5-2) with a two-out rally that made it 5-1. Robert Pehl singled, Jacob Lamb doubled and both scored on B.K. Santy's double when the Stanford right fielder failed to make a diving catch.
The final UW run came in the seventh when Jayce Ray doubled and scored on Caleb Brown's two-out single.
UW closer Joshua Fredendall got four outs for the save.
P.J. Jones went 3 for 5 with five RBI, Derek Jones homered and Washington State's third, fourth and fifth hitters combined to go 8 for 13 in a 19-1 nonleague win over Seattle University (14-12) in Pullman. The Cougars are 15-12.

• Weber State beat Seattle University 5-4 in the first game of a doubleheader in Ogden, Utah. Catcher Bubba Morrow was 2 for 4 with a double and three RBI for Seattle (10-18, 3-2 PCSC). The Redhawks led 11-0 in the second game before it was suspended in the second inning because of weather.
• Stephanie Fox pitched her second straight shutout and Rachelle Berry singled home the only run as Western Washington (9-26, 5-13) beat Saint Martin's 1-0 to split a GNAC doubleheader in Bellingham. The Saints (23-11-1, 13-6) won the opener, 4-1.
