Saint Mary’s scored six runs in the seventh inning and defeated Washington State 9-1 on Sunday in a nonconference baseball game play in Moraga, California.
Earlier, the Cougars (0-4) and Gaels (4-0) completed a game suspended on Saturday in the eighth inning because of darkness, with Saint Mary’s winning 6-3.
In Sunday’s finale, Hayden Rosenkrantz started and pitched six innings for WSU, giving up three runs on six hits with no walks and five strikeouts. He left after hitting the leadoff batter in the seventh and the Gaels went on to score six runs off three WSU relievers in the inning.
The Cougars got only two hits.
Collin Montez had two hits, including a double, and two RBIs for WSU but the Gaels led 6-2 after four innings and went on to win.
