College baseball: Washington State wins second straight at Washington

Ian Hamilton pitched six solid innings and J.J. Hancock capped a five-run third inning with a two-run single Saturday as Washington State clinched a series win with a 7-2 win over Washington in Pac-12 Conference play at Husky Ballpark in Seattle.

Hamilton (2-9) allowed five hits and two earned runs, striking out four and walking four.

The Cougars (17-28, 10-16) collected six hits during their big third for a 5-1 lead.

The Huskies (27-18, 13-10) remained one game behind first-place Utah, which lost to Stanford.

The Cougars will attempt to sweep the three-game series at noon Sunday.

Gonzaga 4, Loyola Marymount 0: Eli Morgan (9-1) scattered six hits in a complete-game shutout, striking out 11 and walking none, as the Bulldogs (29-15, 15-8) defeated the Waves (26-25, 14-9) in Los Angeles to take over first place alone.

Jeff Bohling’s RBI single in the third staked GU to a 1-0 lead. That lead remained the same until a three-run ninth sparked by RBI doubles by Jace Vandebrake and Sam Brown.

Treasure Valley 5-3, CC Spokane 2-10: Ryan Murkle doubled and homered as the Sasquatch (25-17, 14-14 NWAC) salvaged a doubleheader split against the Chukars (31-18, 19-9) at Spokane Falls Community College.

CCS completed its regular season and must wait until Monday to learn if it receives the East Region’s No. 4 seed to the playoffs. That will be determined by the outcome of a Yakima-Walla Walla doubleheader that was rained out Saturday.
