Cougar baseball ends the season with a loss

WSU Athletic Communications

The unofficial start of summer has arrived and WSU welcomed it by closing out the baseball season with a loss.

The NCAA Baseball Tournament selection show will take place this morning, but WSU will not be apart of it. We've known that for a while after the Cougars struggled to string wins together and dipped below .500. The season got off to a rough start and while WSU worked it's way out of the hole, the Cougars simply weren't consistent enough to ever make a serious run at the postseason.

This weekend's series was a good example of that. A late inning collapse cost the Cougars a win against No. 21 Arizona State on Friday. WSU evened the series with a win on Saturday only to drop the rubber match 6-3 on Sunday. All three games were close and the Cougars could have won two or even pulled off the sweep, only to instead come away with a single win.

WSU finished the season 24-30 overall and 14-16 in Pac-12 play.

Memorial Day:

For those of you looking for some Memorial Day reading on Memorial Day, PJ took you through a little history lesson yesterday and the post is well worth your time. Now is also a good time to re-visit WSU Athletics' 17-part series on WSU Veterans.

This is the most-patriotic WSU photo I could find in the SB Nation photo tool:
