Snapping a long losing streak with a win against the No. 12 in the country is good. It's even better when you follow up that win with another win against the No. 12 team in the country. That's exactly what Washington State managed to do on Friday when the Cougars knocked off the Cal Bears for a second straight night.
WSU picked up a 4-0 win on Friday behind a complete game shutout from Joe Pistorese. WSU scored four runs in the first inning and that was all Pistorese needed as he struck out six on the way to his first shutout of the season. The win gives WSU back-to-back victories, but also gives the Cougars their first series victory since WSU swept Sacred Heart in early March. The Cougars will have a chance to complete the sweep against the Bears on Saturday.
