HOT COUGAR ACTION: Friday Morning Links

Today marks the start of a five games in five day stretch for the WSU baseball team. They start in Stanford, where they will face Cardinal ace Mark Appel. At one point in time, Appel was thought to be the favorite to be the No. 1 pick in the upcoming MLB draft, but his stock has dropped slightly. Still, needing as many wins as they can possibly get, starting a brutal stretch of the schedule against one of the top pitchers in the country is not exactly ideal.

Today's first pitch is scheduled for 6:00 p.m. PT.
