College baseball: Northeastern uses fourth-inning homer, triple play to hold off Cougars for 5-3 win

Josh Treff hit a tiebreaking home run in the fourth inning and Northeastern turned a rare triple play in the bottom half of the frame Thursday to escape a bases-loaded situation and the Paws (7-5) defeated Washington State 5-3 in Pullman.

Junior Ian Hamilton posted career highs in innings (6 2/3) and strikeouts (nine) while allowing four runs for WSU (4-9).

Cameron Frost, Weston Hatten and Dugan Shirer each had two hits for the Cougars. Shirer extended his hitting streak to six games and stole his fifth base of the season.

WSU and Northeastern play again at 4 p.m. today.
