Long Beach, Calif. - Long Beach State allowed 15 hits and made five errors on Monday, and the result showed on the scoreboard as Washington State defeated the Dirtbags 11-1 at Blair Field.
In a matchup between two teams coming into the game in difficult circumstances, it was the Cougars that took a lift from their afternoon game, a 10-4 win at UCLA, and the Dirtbags that looked slowed after returning the night before from a series win at Wichita State.
The Cougars jumped out on the Dirtbags early and never looked back. Jason Monda started the game with a double, and Tommy Richards hit an RBI single as it took just two batters for Washington State to take the lead. Starter Nick Sabo collected his first out, but two more singles kept the rally going, and a double from Adam Nelubowich put the Cougars on top 4-0.
Sabo wouldn't allow any more runs in his 3.2 innings pitched, but Edgar Gomez gave up three runs in the fifth inning, and the Cougars would eventually pile up 11 runs while scoring in the fifth, sixth, seventh, and eighth innings on the way to Washington State's 12th win of the year.
Long Beach State scored a run in the eighth inning off of Kellen Camus. Jeff McNeil drew a walk to start off the inning, and after a single by Matt Duffy, Ino Patron drew a second walk to load the bases, and Richard Prigatano hit an RBI groundout to score McNeil for the Dirtbags' only run of the game.
The Dirtbags return to the road as Long Beach State is in the middle of playing 14 of 15 games away from Blair Field. Long Beach State starts Big West play this weekend, traveling to Cal Poly for a three-game series that kicks off Friday at 6 p.m.
