First pitch is tonight at 5 p.m.

The Washington State baseball team’s opening weekend did not go as planned as they dropped their first three games of the season before finding a win against UC Riverside on Sunday in the back half of a double header. They look to continue their winning ways today with a game at Grand Canyon University at 5 p.m. in Phoenix, Arizona.

Grand Canyon is in the same boat as the Cougars when it comes to starting this year as they both have one win on the young season. The Antelopes hosted #7 TCU this past weekend and dropped their first two games 3-2 and 14-6 before needing 12 innings to get their first win on Sunday.

The Cougars notched their first win of the year in great fashion as well as they trailed 6-1 before scoring two in the seventh and four more in the eighth inning to take the weekend finale 7-6.

AJ Block looks to take the mound for the Cougars while Jake Repavich will be on the other side for his first appearance of the season. Block has only pitched in one inning this year and it did not go all too well. In the second game of the season against Nebraska, Block faced 8 batters giving up four runs on two walks and two batters hit by a pitch. He gave up one hit and struck out one as well.

After wrapping up their road trip, they will head to Tuscaloosa for a three game series against Alabama starting on Friday before coming home to Pullman next week for their opening homestand at Bailey-Brayton.
