UCLA finally cools off WSU baseball

WSU Athletic Communications

On Saturday, WSU’s baseball team clinched its fourth straight series win. On Sunday, the Cougars came up short of completing the sweep against UCLA. WSU took the first two games of the series, but the Bruins jumped out to an early lead on Sunday and never looked back.

Still, taking two of three was enough to clinch the Cougars’ fourth straight conference series win, the first time WSU has done that since 1995. Before the Cougars try to make it five straight series wins, they will head up to Spokane to play Gonzaga on Tuesday.

If WSU is able to make it five straight conference series wins in a row, it will be a major feat. The Cougars head out on the road next weekend to take on Oregon State. The Beavers are the No. 1 team in the nation, the Pac-12 champ and winners of eight straight games. Oregon State has only lost four games all season, and only one of those was at home. Taking two out of three against OSU will be quite the challenge. Soon we’ll get to see if WSU is up for it.
