Washington State came up short of the sweep against the Washington Huskies on Sunday with a 6-4 loss, but it was still a very successful weekend for the Cougars.
WSU opened the series with a pair of wins to clinch the series victory. That is a significant accomplishment for WSU as it was the first time the Cougars took a series from the Huskies in Seattle since 2004. Early on, it seemed Washington State was headed for a sweep. The Cougars jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the top of the first inning. The Huskies chipped away before taking the lead for good with three runs in the bottom of the sixth inning.
Despite losing the final game, it was a productive series for WSU. Coming in to the series, the Cougars had lost three straight games and five of their last six. They snapped that losing streak and notched a pair of wins against the No. 14 team in the country. That's no small accomplishment either. This is the first series the Huskies have dropped at home all season.
Now, WSU has a chance to build on the success with a game against Gonzaga in Pasco on Tuesday.
