The Washington State Cougar baseball team was able to shake off another short start by redshirt freshman David Stilley to defeat the University of Washington Huskies 10-5. The win completed a three-game sweep of UW and sent the seniors, who were playing their final game at Bailey-Brayton field, off in style.
Jay Ponciano continued to be a thorn in the Huskies' side, as he went 2 for 4 with a double and a homerun. UW slugger Kyle Conley rounded out what was a forgettable series for him, going 0 for 14 with 8 strikeouts.
The Cougar bullpen was the story of the day, as they held the Husky bats scoreless in the final 6 1/3 innings of the game. This was the third sweep in conference play for the Cougs. WSU baseball had not swept anyone since the Pac 10 reunification in 1999 prior to this season.
This is pretty sweet, not many things better than beating up on the Huskies.
ESPN will be broadcasting the College Baseball NCAA tournament selection show tommorrow at 9:30am. CougCenter will have a thread up for those of you who want to discuss the Cougs' first trip to regionals in 19 years.
