Some good news regarding WSU Baseball is that they’ve got a 2 game series lead over Brown University, they are playing them in a series of four. After losing a game to Gonzaga, who they’ll play later on in about a week have bounced back rather quickly with two easy wins. The Washington State Baseball team has a record of 12-8 so far. The baseball team needs to take advantage of these final two games of the series before they take on Stanford in Pullman. Having a 14-8 record before another conference game will be huge for this team, in baseball you want to take every game you can and it seems like Brown really isn’t a match for this WSU team. That is why I see no reason why they can’t sweep them to finish off the series.
The following schedule for the Cougs is going to be a true test for this team, luckily for them they’ll play Stanford and Gonzaga (1 game) in Pullman before heading out to the Salt Lake City to face the Utah Utes and the BYU Cougars. If the Cougars hold up fairly well in these upcoming games, their postseason future could be very bright. Of course It’s still very early, but having a good record like this at this stage with a quality series win over a ranked team helps their chances.
It’ll be interesting to see how thing play out over the course of this season. I recommend you go out and catch a game if you’re in Pullman and not too busy. This is definitely a very good program that Coach Marbut has built and he’s doing a great job. This team is fairly young and making the postseason with all this young talent can really show how dangerous this program can be when some of these guys are juniors and seniors!
