Cougars drop two straight to Huskies, series finale set for Sunday

Washington State dropped a 10-2 decision to Washington at Bailey-Brayton Field Saturday afternoon.

The Cougars received a three-hit game from Dillon Plew along with two-hit performances from Tyson Guerrero and Garrett Gouldsmith . UW collected 18 hits and turned a pair double plays clinch the series to end a couple Cougar rallies.

In the first, UW used a leadoff double, a ground out and a wild pitch to take a 1-0 lead. The Cougars answered with a run in the second inning as Tyson Guerrero pulled a leadoff double down the right field line and later scored on a Collin Montez sacrifice fly to center, evening things up at 1-1.

In the third, UW used five hits and balk call to push four runs across in the third for a 5-1 advantage. The Cougars nearly answered in the bottom of the inning after loading the bases but UW held off the rally with a flyout and strikeout. Washington added single runs in the fifth and sixth innings to build a 7-1 advantage.

In the bottom of the sixth, Guerrero delivered an RBI-single back up the middle.
