HOT COUGAR ACTION: WSU Wins With Walk-Off

New, 8 comments

If you only saw the 9-5 final score of yesterday's baseball win, you would miss the best part. Tied 5-5 with the bases loaded and two outs in the bottom or the ninth inning, freshman catcher P.J. Jones hit a game-winning grand slam.

Not only is a walk-off grand slam a pretty cool way to end a game, but it was Jones' first collegiate home run. You can see the home run and the celebration in the videos below, pretty fun stuff.
