by Washington State Univ. athletics

PULLMAN, Wash. Seattle scored twice in the top of the eighth inning for a 5-4 victory over Washington State in nonconference baseball, Saturday.

With the victory, the Redhawks (15-12) avoided a three-game sweep by the Cougars (15-13). It was Seattle's first win over Washington State since March 23, 1968.

Jason Monda led off with a single and moved to third on a single by Tommy Richards. Derek Jones doubled down the right field line to score Monda and Richards came home two batters later on a single by Adam Nelubowich for a 2-1 Cougar lead.

The teams traded runs in the third. After Seattle tied the game, Collin Slaybaugh led off the Washington State half of the frame with a double. Slaybaugh took third on a balk and scored on a sacrifice fly by Richards.

Seattle tied the game with a run in the fifth, Chleborad's last inning of work. Washington State regained the lead at 4-3 in the seventh on Taylor Ard's fifth home run of the season.

In the eighth, Scott Simon (2-1) retired the first-two men he faced in his second inning of work. Simon then yielded a double and a walk before Riley Tompkins doubled to drive in two runs for a 5-4 Seattle lead.

Garrett Anderson (4-2) gave up one run in 3 2/3 innings of relief for the victory and Eric Yardley worked a perfect ninth, including strikeouts of Jones and Ard to end the game, for his second save.
