There was nothing easy about this Sunday for the Washington State baseball team. First the Cougars had to win a loser-out game with Kansas State. They did, 9-6. Then they had to face the host Arkansas Razorbacks knowing they had to beat the top seed twice to advance to next weekend’s super regional. They did, 10-7. WSU scored first, led 2-1 before a five-run fifth gave them some breathing room. But Arkansas wasn’t about to go away, scoring five runs over the next three innings to cut the lead to 7-6. Some poor Razorback fielding helped the Cougars score three times in the top of the eighth. Over, right? Especially with Chad Arnold throwing for WSU. Not really. Arkansas rallied with two outs in the eighth for a run. But Arnold tightened up and shut the Razorbacks down the rest of the way for a season-extending victory. Derek Jones picked a great day to get hot, hitting a big three-run home run the opener and finishing with five RBIs. In the nightcap, he added four hits and two RBIs. With Arnold throwing parts of four innings Sunday, will the Cougars turn to Adam Conley on Monday? We’ll see. You can find our story here.
