Good morning Coug fans. The spring sports season is slowly winding to a close on the Palouse. The baseball team only has a few more weeks, and it began a three-game series last night in Pullman against the nation’s top-ranked team, the UCLA Bruins.

It was Dog Day at the Park, and fans brought a bunch of good boys for an evening of baseball. Unfortunately, the Cougs couldn’t give the dogs a win, as they dropped a 6-2 decision.

I mean, just look at these pups:

The Cougs and Bruins each got runs in the first and second innings, but a three-run fourth gave the Bruins a cushion it wouldn’t surrender. WSU had just five hits and used five pitchers—none of whom went more than two-and-a-third innings. Zane Mills got the loss in just one inning of play. Mills allowed one hit, one run, walked one, struck out one and hit one. It was a day of ones for the freshman.

The loss drops the Cougs to 10-34-1 overall and just 2-19-1 in Pac-12 play. Needless to say, it hasn’t been a great year for the Cougs. The team is young, and with the Back to Omaha project approved, let’s hope good things are on the horizon.

The Cougs and Bruins play the second game today at 2:05 p.m.

Klay Thompson

No Kevin Durant, no problem for the Golden State Warriors. Steph Curry will get a ton of deserved ink for his second half performance last night, but it was Thompson with the dagger:
