The Washington State baseball team hosted the University of Utah (18-24, 13-8) for a 3-game series that started Saturday with a win and ended Monday evening with a loss against the team tied for first in the conference.

The Cougars (15-27, 8-16) started off the weekend with a 4-3 win after Damon Jones pitched 5 scoreless innings against the Utes. The Cougars scored 3 runs in the 5th inning to help them lock up the first win of the series.

The Utes came back on Sunday and scored 3 runs in the 5th and 9th innings to help lead them to an 11-5 victory to even up the series.

On Monday, the Cougars led 1-0 heading into the 7th inning but gave up 2 runs in the 7th after an errant throw with the bases loaded and another in the eighth. The Cougars scored one run in the bottom of the 9th but were unable push the tying run across after loading the bases with 2 outs.

The Cougars get a few days off before heading to Seattle to take on Seattle U for one game and then wrap the trip up against Washington for a 3-game series starting Friday at 7 pm.
