While the the football and basketball programs struggled this season, the baseball team is off to a solid start. The Cougars knocked off Cal State Northridge on Thursday and have now won six straight games.

The wins haven't come against the toughest competition and a few of the games have been close, but at least they are winning. A few of the early season games have been high scoring, but Thursday's contest went a different route. Behind a solid start from Joe Pistorese, the Cougars knocked off Cal State Northridge 2-1. Pistorese allowed one run over 6-1/3 innings, helping the Cougars extend their winning streak.

Donnie Marbut's team will go for a seventh straight win today.
