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

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.
