Cougar Baseball drops game two to UCLA

New, 2 comments

The Cougar bats were alive and well, but it wasn't enough to beat the Bruins.

WSU Athletics

Good morning, Cougar fans. After Friday night's loss in which they sent the go-ahead run to the plate in the ninth inning, the Cougar baseball team looked to rebound Saturday in the second of a three-game series against UCLA. As has become a familiar theme with the 2016 Cougs, they took a lead but could not keep it.

WSU jumped out to a 4-1 lead after five innings, thanks in large part to a power surge that included two homeruns. They would tally a third homerun in the seventh when Cameron Frost tallied his third of the season. UCLA managed to push across six runs on only seven hits. How did they do that? Well, nine WSU pitchers allowed a staggering 14 walks.

There is nothing more frustrating than watching your team just give a game to the opponent. Unfortunately, we've seen that happen time after time in 2016. On the positive side, Trek Stemp continues to rake, as he has collected a hit in every start (17) this season, and Cameron Frost now has nine multi-hit games. The Cougs will try and salvage game three Sunday at noon. First pitch is at noon on Pac-12 Networks.

Beer

Best Beer I had this week: I was lucky enough to score a ticket to Hunahpu's Day last weekend. It's a beer festival put on by local brewery Cigar City, in which several breweries from around the country release samples of many rare beers. It's also the one day per year that Cigar City releases its Hunahpu's Imperial Stout. My ticket got me eight bottles, and I had my first this week. It was worth the hype. I found out that crazy beer people pay upwards of $100 for a bottle, but I plan to drink my share.
