WSU TAKES TO THE ROAD AGAINST WILDCATS:
The Washington State baseball team returns to conference action this week against Arizona, beginning Friday at 7 p.m. at Frank Sancet Field in Tucson, Ariz.
The Cougars enter the weekend slate with a 19-29 record overall and a 4-14 mark in the Pac-10. Arizona is 29-20 overall and 7-11 in the conference.
Last weekend, WSU played a three-game non-conference series with NAIA power Lewis-Clark State. The Cougars won the opener Saturday, 9-7 at Bailey-Brayton Field, but dropped the next two contests, one at Bailey-Brayton and the other at Harris Field in Lewiston, Idaho.
The two teams split their season series 2-2.
Senior second baseman Bookie Gates led the way against LCSC with a 6-for-12 performance at the plate, boosting his season average to .376.
The Cougars head to Arizona, already four games ahead of last season's 15-game win total and need two wins this weekend to match last season's conference wins.
Last year, Arizona won two of three games against WSU at Bailey-Brayton Field. The Wildcats, eighth in the conference standings, lead the all-time series 12-5.
The Cougars will conclude their season next week on the road with a three-game series against Stanford. The series begins Friday, May 24, at 6 p.m. at Sunken Diamond in Stanford, Calif.
