The Washington State baseball team is coming off of a series win over the University of Washington in Seattle over the weekend and is looking to keep up the success Tuesday. The Cougars (17-29) will head to Pasco to host the Gonzaga Bulldogs (30-15) for the final game of the season series at 6:30 pm at Gesa Stadium.

The Cougars have played at least one game a year in Pasco since 2011 although they have not had the most success there. Going 3-7 in the home-away-from-home games, they have failed to notch a win against a team besides Portland.

Trek Stemp is one of two players on the Cougar roster from the Tri-Cities with the other being J.J. Hancock. Stemp was injured over the weekend in the series against the Huskies according to the Tri-City Herald. It was also announced that he could be missing a few weeks to recover from the lower body injury.

Gonzaga won the first game of the season series back on April 5th, 8-0 and locked up the series win with a 7-4 victory on April 19th.

The Cougars look to avoid the sweep and keep up the hot bats against Gonzaga.
