The Washington State baseball team dropped its first home game of the season on Sunday against Cal State Northridge to bring their home record to 10-1. On Monday, the Cougars got back on their winning ways and took the finale of a four game series 6-4 to seal the series win.

Cougar third baseman Shane Matheny started out the scoring in the first inning with an RBI single up the middle and he was later hit in by Blake Clanton. They then added one run in each of the third and fourth innings to hold a 4-0 lead heading into the fifth. Cal State tried to make it a game in the fifth and sixth innings but Clanton hit a solo home run in the bottom of the sixth to give the Cougars a 5-2 lead.

The Matadors pushed back in the eighth inning with back-to-back doubles off the wall to cut the lead to 1. JJ Hancock gave the Cougars their final run and more breathing room in the bottom half of the inning with a solo shot to right-center to give them a 6-4 lead.

Washington State finished off the series taking three games of four and to take their third series of the season. For a recap of the double header on Saturday check out PJ Kendall's article here.

The Cougars will head to Berkeley this weekend to take on California in a three game series starting Friday at 7:05 P.M.
