College baseball: Stephen Lund leads Gonzaga in rout of Washington State

From staff reports

Stephen Lund batted 4 for 6 with three doubles and six RBIs, and Gonzaga beat Washington State 15-3 Tuesday in a nonconference game at Bailey-Brayton Field.

Ernie Yake added three runs on a 3-for-5 effort, finishing a home run short of the cycle. Brett Harris also scored three runs.

The Bulldogs (6-10) erupted for nine runs in the third inning to turn a 1-1 game into a rout. Lund had two doubles in the frame, driving in three runs. Jack Machtolf, Josh Bristyan and Anthony Garrett also had RBI hits in the inning.

“We did a good job of taking advantage of our opportunities today, especially Stephen Lund. He had a big day offensively,” said Gonzaga head coach Mark Machtolf in a news release.

Kyle Manzardo went 2 for 4 with a homer for the Cougars (7-9), extending his hitting streak to 16.

Regan Haas (1-0) picked up the win after working three innings in relief of GU starter Keaton Knueppel.
