Oct. 16, 2006
PULLMAN, Wash. - The Washington State baseball team will end its fall season this week with an intrasquad World Series beginning today at Bailey-Brayton Field. The Crimson team, coached by associate head coach Travis Jewett and volunteer assistant coach Matt Dorey, will face the Gray squad, led by Head Coach Donnie Marbut and assistant Coach Gregg Swenson, in three-game series starting Monday at 3 p.m. Admission to each game is free.
In last Friday's spring training game, a prelude to this week's world series, senior catcher Mike Gilbert hit a walk-off home run to lead the Gray team to victory.
The rotations have been set for the three-game series, with Seth Harvey and Garrett Kimbrel going in the opener for the Gray squad while Ryan Graves and Connor Lambert are scheduled to work for the Crimson team. Tuesday's matchup features Zach Miller and Michael Ratigan pitching for the Gray with Matt Crowe and Josh Williamson set to work for the Crimson. Wednesday's finale will see Adam Dentz and Steve Kost working for the Gray with Ross Humes and Jayson Miller pitching for the Crimson.
