State Claims 6-2 Victory Over Cougs On Opening Night

A pitching staff that is expected to be very strong this season didn't disappoint on opening night, as 3 Bulldog pitchers spread out 4 hits and two runs leading the Bulldogs to a 6-2 victory over the visiting Washington State Cougars. State's offense did a good job of manufacturing runs, as they strung hits together In the 2nd and 4th innings to put 5 runs on the board and keep the a cougars at a distance.

Ben Bracewell got the start for State and pitched well, going 4 innings and striking out 5 while only allowing 3 hits and walking 1. State also used Fr Jonathan Holder, as well as ace Chris Stratton who finished out the final 4 innings to take home the W. Offensively State used a balanced attack, as 6 different Bulldogs produced an RBI on the night.

State will be back in action today (weather permitting) at 2:30 to take on the Cougars in game 2 of the 3 game weekend series.

Here are the official stats for last evening's affair.
