Huskies defeat Cougars in nonconference baseball


PASCO – Ryan Wiggins doubled in the go-ahead run in the top of the sixth inning and three Washington relievers kept the door barred to guide the Huskies (17-34) to a 4-2 victory over the Washington State Cougars (24-27) in nonconference baseball at Gesa Stadium on Tuesday.

WSU took a 1-0 lead in the third inning on Tam Sing’s run-scoring double, but the Huskies pulled even in the fifth on Reggie Jones’ two-out RBI single.

Washington scored twice in the sixth and never trailed again.

Jeff Brigham (4-1) pitched a scoreless fifth inning to notch the win. Tyler Kane allowed one run in two innings of work and Adam Cimber retired the final six batters in order to pick up his second save of the season.

Richie Ochoa (5-2) gave up the two sixth-inning runs to take the loss.
