Baseball continues push against Stanford

At 5:00 today!

Washington State Cougars Baseball Jack Ellis/CougCenter

Good morning, Coug fans! After a less than ideal first game against No. 24 Stanford (3-18) our Washington State Cougars return today in the hopes of a better outcome.

The key takeaway from yesterday’s game was Stanford’s Brendan Beck- who collected 7 hits and 7 strikeouts across 8 innings.

Our own Kyle Manzardo had an uncharacteristically difficult game, going 0-4 on hits. Ideally this becomes a motivator for today! Collin Montez was able to hold on with a two run homer, which was great!

Stanford’s batting leader is Vincent Martinez, who averages .417, and leads the team in doubles (most scored was 3 in one game, yesterday against us). Martinez, Tim Tawa, and Brock Jones all managed to grab 3 runs each, which is unfortunately not out of character for any of them.

Quinn Mathews might be up to the mound as well on behalf of Stanford, he and Beck lead the team in 8 innings pitched so far this season.

Brock Jones had a grand slam in yesterday’s game, the goal today is perhaps hoping his springtime allergies are acting up, so we can avoid that.

Overall, yesterday’s game contained several examples of Stanford connecting- and ideally today there’s just such a pollen flare up that somehow is exclusive to Stanford players! Is that mean to hope for?

The series continues today at 5pm on the Pac-12 Networks! Go Cougs!
