Washington State Cougars get late home runs to outlast CSUN Matadors in baseball

UPDATED: Mon., March 27, 2017

The Washington State Cougars jumped out to an early lead and then used late solo home runs by Blake Clanton and J.J. Hancock to hold on for a 6-4 nonconference victory over the Cal State Northridge Matadors (12-13) at Bailey-Brayton Field in Pullman on Monday.

The win gives the Cougars (14-8) a 10-1 record at home this season. Only the 1998 team (22-1) got off to a hotter start at home.

Next up for the Cougs, who took 3 of 4 games from the Matadors, is a three-game Pac-12 series at California beginning Friday.
