COUGARS RETURN TO THE ROAD WITH FOUR-GAME SET AGAINST LCSC, UCLA: Washington State heads to Lewiston Tuesday to take on NAIA No. 8 Lewis-Clark State for a one-game engagement at 6:30 p.m. at Harris Field. The Cougars will return to Pac-10 action Friday when they visit UCLA at Jackie Robinson Stadium for a three-game set beginning at 6 p.m.
WSU enters the week at 14-23 overall and 2-10 in the Pac-10. LCSC brings a 24-10 record into this week. The Bruins are 18-23 overall and 4-5 in the Pac-10.
Last week, WSU took on conference leader USC in a three-game series at Bailey-Brayton Field. The Trojans swept the Cougars behind hot hitting. WSU, however, was just as explosive offensively.
Second baseman Bookie Gates, who missed Sunday's series finale with a pulled hamstring, is probable for this week. Gates is currently hitting .362 with a team-leading 29 RBI.
The pitching rotation will change this week. WSU will likely start junior right-hander Brandon Hundt (4-4, 5.59 ERA) against LCSC. Junior RHP Eddie Bonine (6-5, 5.81), Hundt (4-4, 5.59) and freshman RHP Bryce Chamberlin (0-0, 9.15) will take the mound against the Bruins. Junior left-hander Garrett Alwert (2-3, 7.39) has a dead arm and is not likely to pitch this week.
