HOT COUGAR ACTION: One Of The Best Catches You'll Ever See

If you follow Brian or Christian Caple on Twitter, you may have already seen this. If not, be prepared to witness one of the best baseball catches you will ever see.

The catch was made by Derrick Salberg who plays for Lower Columbia. Lower Columbia was leading by two with two outs in the bottom of the ninth and one man on base. This catch would be impressive if it were in the top of the first, but the fact it saved the game is just icing on an already delicious cake.

I know it has nothing to do with WSU, but it really is too good to ignore. As far as the WSU baseball team, they lost to Washington 5-2.

And so we have the Ducks, almost certainly unbeaten and untested at 4-0, driving up to Seattle to take on Washington State in CenturyLink Field on Sept. 29. The Cougars also could be 4-0. And dangerous. Fear the Pirate, Oregon. This game smacks of a "I'm baaaaack" opportunity for Mike Leach.
