College baseball

Portland State scored eight runs in the seventh inning to come from behind and defeat visiting Washington State 13-9 in a Pac-10 North Division game at Portland on Friday.

Graham Schetzsle’s triple and Rick Southall’s ninth home run each drove in two runs during the outburst.

Mark Burke had a run-scoring double in the seventh and a two-run homer in the eighth for the Vikings.

The Vikings trailed 9-2 prior to taking a 10-9 lead in the seventh to make a winner of Jesse Darling, who entered the game in the sixth.

Washington State starter Todd Meldahl, a freshman left-hander, limited the Vikings to two runs and six hits through the first six innings. But five consecutive hits by the Vikings keyed the decisive rally.

Casey Kelley, Jesse Hoorelbeke and Justin Mentink homered for Washington State as the Cougars scored five runs in the first four innings and led 5-0.

The victory was the first in conference play for Portland State. PSU is 1-7 in the Pac-10 and 8-29 overall. Washington State fell to 1-8 in the conference and 5-32 for the season.
