PULLMAN -- There IS life after death. Need proof? Look no further than the 2011 Washington State…
Cougs shut down No. 3 OSU
Washington State (15-19, 3-12 Pac-10) earned its first shutout of Oregon State (29-8, 10-2 Pac-10) in over a decade with the win.
The Cougars took a 1-0 lead in the third on a one-out walk to Cody Bartlett and back-to-back singles by Brett Jacobs and Derek Jones. In the sixth, Washington State added a run on one-out singles by Taylor Ard and Jason Monda and a two-out, infield hit from Jay Ponciano.
After allowing an infield single in the first, Wise did not give up another hit until the sixth, including a stretch where he retired 10-straight hitters. He was tested in the seventh, however. After a walk, infield hit and a passed ball, OSU runners were at second and third with two outs. But Wise struck out Dylan Jones to end the threat.
In the eighth, Wise yielded a walk and a single with two outs. Anthony Drobnick entered the game in relief and with the runners in motion, punched out Kavin Keyes on a 3-2 pitch to end the inning.
Paris Shewey worked the ninth for his Pac-10 leading seventh save of the season. The save also moved the southpaw into sole possession of seventh place on the Cougar single-season saves list and into a tie for fifth on the WSU career saves list.
The Cougars return home Monday to face BYU (20-16,7-7 MWC) at 5:30 p.m. in the first of a two-game series.
