Good morning, fellow Cougs. It’s absolutely beautiful in my neck of the woods. The mountains are calling, and I must go. I hope your situation is similar, wherever you are.

If you were in Pullman yesterday, you may have been witness to the baseball team’s absolute domination of no. 13 Arizona. The final score was 21-2, and let’s unpack the events.

First, WSU got off to nice start with a three-run first inning. That’s a good way to start a ballgame, but the floodgates hadn’t opened quite yet. That happened an inning later, when WSU scored 10 runs in the second inning and chased Arizona starter Chase Silseth, who also suffered his first loss of the season. Oddly, Arizona only used three pitchers. Talk about torture!

Jacob McKeon had six RBIs for WSU and hit a grand slam in the sixth inning off Arizona reliever Trevor Long.

Collin Montez, Jack Smith and Justin Van De Brake each had three RBIs. Just check out this dominating box score.

Surprisingly, the 21 runs were just the ninth-most in school history. The Cougs and Arizona are back at it today under the sunny blue skies in Pullman.
