College baseball: Gonzaga clinches at least tie for WCC title

Eli Morgan pitched a complete-game shutout and Justin Jacobs drove in three runs Friday as Gonzaga clinched at least a share of the West Coast Conference title with an 8-0 win at San Diego (26-29, 12-14).

Morgan (10-1) scattered eight hits, struck out five and walked none. The Bulldogs staked him to a 5-0 lead in the third and added three runs in the sixth, capped by Jacobs’ two-run single.

The Bulldogs (33-15, 18-8) lead BYU and Saint Mary’s (both 17-9) by one game with the regular season ending Saturday.

McNeese State 8-6, Washington State 2-2: The Cowboys (29-22) scored four runs in the seventh inning of the second game to snap a 2-all tie and complete a nonconference sweep over the host Cougars (17-33) at Bailey-Brayton Field.

Shane Selman’s two-run homer in the fourth gave McNeese State a 5-2 edge in the opener.

WSU’s Ian Hamilton allowed two earned runs in six innings in the second game.

Washington 4, Stanford 3: Chris Baker finished 4 for 5 and started the winning rally in the ninth as the Huskies (30-18, 15-10 Pac-12) edged the Cardinal (27-22, 11-14) at Husky Ballpark to stay on the heels of first-place Utah (15-9 Pac-12).

Baker singled with one out in the ninth of a 3-all game. He moved up on a walk and wild pitch, and scored on MJ Hubbs’ sacrifice fly.
