Hot Cougar Action: WSU loses another to Oregon

Baseball season has not been especially kind and this weekend has been more of the same.

WSU Athletic Communications

WSU is playing its final Pullman series of the season and it is not going well. After a 9th inning error cost the Cougars the game on Friday, more late-inning struggles led to another WSU loss on Saturday.

The loss dropped WSU to 20-22 on the season and 7-13 in Pac-12 play, not the season some were hoping for. The Cougars will close out their Pullman home schedule (WSU hosts Washington in Pasco later this month) with a final game against Oregon on Sunday.

The Cougars have been close against the No. 6 team in the country, but as has been the case this season, they are just not quite there.
