Baseball looks to get back in the win column against BYU

The Cougars have hit a rough patch the past two weeks

WSU Athletic Communications

Washington State baseball will head to Provo, Utah to take on BYU today at noon as they look to get their first win in nearly two weeks. After starting the season 7-3, the Cougs have dropped to 9-14 on the season. Their last win came March 18th in an 11-4 victory over 2-20 Bushnell.

BYU (12-9) comes into this game after dropping two of three against #19 Gonzaga this past weekend. This will not be their first game this season against a Pac-12 opponent however as they swept Arizona State in a three game series early in the season and then beat Utah a few weeks ago.

The Cougs, led by infielder Jack Smith will look to put an end to their seven game losing streak. Smith currently leads the team with a .307 batting average, 23 hits, 16 runs batted in, and six doubles.

Head-to-head, the Cougs lead the series 9-2 and are 3-1 on the road. Their last matchup came in 2014 in Pasco and was a 3-0 loss. Their last trip to Provo was a 3-2 loss in 2010.

Following their game against BYU, the Cougs will return home to take on Utah for a three game series beginning Friday at 3:05. Their Saturday game will start at 2:05 and the series finale has first pitch slated for 1:05. All three games can be seen on the Washington State athletics website.
