WSU wins first NCAA game since 1990


WSU just eliminated Wichita State, 3-2, behind the 10-strikeout pitching of Chad Arnold (a career high), a two-run home run from Derek Jones (his 12th) and a solo shot from Jared Prince (his seventh). The two home runs were on back-to-back pitches in the sixth. The Cougar bullpen, which struggled mightily in the loss to Arkansas, came through this time with Jeremy Johnson getting the save, his 10th. Now WSU will wait to see which team they'll play. It will be the loser of today's Arkansas vs. Oklahoma game. To win the regional, WSU has to win four consecutive games. With today's win, the Cougars need three more.
