In honor of the first regular season game of the year you can see in video, CougCenter will be having its first open game baseball thread. SW WA Coug I hope you're watching today!
The Cougs and Trojans split the first two games of the series. USC pitcher Brad Boxberger shut down the Wazzu offense, striking out 11 and going the distance for a 5-1 win. WSU came back in game two with an 18 hit performance that produced a 13-3 trouncing of Southern Cal.
After the victory yesterday, Washington State moved back into a tie for second place with OSU, and is two games up in the loss column ahead of the fourth-place Trojans. Needless to say, this game is huge for the Cougs. Another road series would look very nice come selection time.
WSU: LH David Stilley (1-0, 3.14 ERA)
USC: RH Robert Stock (3-1, 2.14 ERA)
