Hot Cougar Action: WSU baseball keeps rolling

New, 2 comments

Make it eight straight wins for the WSU baseball team as Donnie Marbut's squad notched another victory on Saturday.

WSU Athletic Communications

The WSU baseball team extended its winning streak to eight games on Saturday with a 7-4 victory against Cal State Northridge.

The Cougars fell behind early, but didn't waste much time taking the lead and were able to work out of a few jams late in the game to hang on. WSU is now 8-0 at home and will go for its second straight four-game sweep on Sunday. There have been multiple brights spots during the winning streak and the Cougars' bullpen has been one of them.

J.D. Leckenby notched his fourth save of the season on Saturday. His move to the bullpen has paid off so far as he is a key part of a bullpen which has posted a 2.37 ERA through the first ten games of the season. If that performance continues and WSU's young bats continue to hit, this winning streak may prove to be the first of many this season.

Women's basketball:

The women's basketball team closed out the regular season with a 72-50 loss to Stanford on Saturday. The Cougars will now prepare for the Pac-12 tournament, which begins Thursday in Seattle. Assuming I'm reading things correctly, WSU will open the tournament on Thursday against ASU at 12 p.m. PT. If the Cougars win, they will get a rematch with Stanford.
